October 16: God good to me and mine in many outward mercies, some inward quiet of my heart in the view of god, beholding him in christ, and so made able to hope in him, the season comfortable; mens minds fear, no providences awaken men to search the ways and turn to gods. god good to me in the word, lord let it rule in my heart, and save my soul, some providences of god to me and mine, I heartily recommend to god, to direct and bless in the same.
