Day 2

Great day for a run. I was a little short on time so I took the route down College to Hamvasy back up Chilton then cut back over to College. Pretty quiet and peaceful run.

Today we celebrated the feast of th Guardian Angels and I asked the people at 7 am mass if there angel had "grown up". I think it's a good question for all of us to ponder because we probably need our guardian angels more now than ever. Isn't it a consoling thought to realize that the angels represent the will of God that we all share everlasting life with him.

Godbless and have a great weekend.
