The week had a promising start with Dixon, but on Friday with a forecast of 5 - 7 of snow, icy roads, wind, etc. starting mid-day, I was prudent when I decided to hold a brief afternoon discipleship class and cancel the evening class. Usually I'm happy when a snow storm does not materialize but this time I was bummed and it put a damper on the week of new classes.

I guess it was better to be cautious then not be, but it doesn't help to much knowing I will miss Sheridan next Friday because of a scheduled MRI.

Solace comes in knowing God is sovereign.

To Him be the glory
