Okay, today I need to spend the day getting this place straightened up. I have been a good Flybaby insofar as I have decluttered the front bathroom linen closet, and that's no mean feat. But, the rest of the house is a mess - so today I go from room to room making things look better. No deep cleaning or decluttering, just getting the surfaces looking good and getting rid of the chaos. Then I can concentrate on the other stuff.

Tomorrow is Harold's last day at Medler. He is very excited. He never really wanted to work off the farm so I can imagine how happy he is to be able to once again be a full-time farmer.

Word of the day:
Gospel

Thursday of the First Week in Ordinary Time
Mk 1:40-45

A leper came to him and kneeling down begged him and said,
“If you wish, you can make me clean.”
Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand,
touched the leper, and said to him,
“I do will it. Be made clean.”
The leprosy left him immediately, and he was made clean.
Then, warning him sternly, he dismissed him at once.
Then he said to him, “See that you tell no one anything,
but go, show yourself to the priest
and offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed;
that will be proof for them.”
The man went away and began to publicize the whole matter.
He spread the report abroad
so that it was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly.
He remained outside in deserted places,
and people kept coming to him from everywhere.

Thoughts from the cornfield:
Sometimes I think the best way to get the word out about something is to tell someone to keep it secret. This guy didn't just tell one or two people quietly, he broadcast it everywhere and abroad. What if we lived our faith like that. What if we just couldn't keep quiet about the Good News? What would the world be like?

God bless the troops!
