Plans are nice things to have. You search the Internet and in five minutes or less, you can get vertigo from the huge number of permutations and combinations of planner configurations, styles, and content. You may take my word for it or wholeheartedly agree with me because you have experienced it yourself.
Not to put down the planning experts because I truly admire them, and wish that I have a small measure of their efficiency and sense of organization.
My problem with planning is that I get stuck with the plans. Well, in my defense, that's not always the sad outcome. But yes, I have gotten stuck many times. Stuck in the implementation and monitoring and evaluation, in the jargon of project managers.
I also get stuck because of rambling, so I will make my points quickly now.
I think that if I am sensible enough to make plans, I should also have the matching determination to make them work. And they will not work if I don't follow them daily. doggedly. resolutely.
And at all times, bar none, it makes for good planning to plan only to rely on the Greatest of Plans, which was crafted most lovingly by the Perfect and Most Benevolent Planner. Hundreds of years ago, a holy and pure lady was asked by an angel if she would do this. The rest is the best part of salvation history.
A note on the photos: Both photos show sections of Communion rails, the first one at the Basilica Minore de Santo Nino de Cebu, and the next at the Saint Pedro Calungsod Shrine. Early this year, I planned to visit my sister who lives several islands away. Then away I went, and took these photos on the side.
