Well gang I must confess I didn't run today, too much rain. I know that's a wimpy excuse but I didn't think it would be very smart to get soaking wet. I did get in a good workout on my Nordic track so hopefully that counts. My cat always reacts to the Nordic track. She seems to waiver between attacking it or hiding under the bed. She usually chooses the bed!

In my homiily today I asked the question, "is this God's plan?" I think we can apply that to all of the important decisions we have to make. Too often the world says we should just follw our own plan. That seems to get us in trouble all the tiime as individuals, as nations and as a global society.
