Jan: 15: This week the lord in many ways good to me and mine, only my wife breeds with much illness, I find the lord weaning my heart from outward things, and making them nothing and base in my eyes, oh let them never be a snare to me. my straitness of heart in prayer continues, lord awaken and arouse me, the week was warm, and dry, the lord make us sensible of his doings.
