 So once upon a time this very wealthy man went out to play golf with some of his friends. It looked like it might rain, so he insisted in wearing his favorite rain hat. He search in his golf bag and couldnít find it. He searched in his duffle bag and couldnít find. His friends grew impatient. It isnít going to rain. Go into the club house and buy a new rain cap. It isnít worth the trouble. I really love the rain cap. . .You guys go ahead and play without me.

 So they did, though they like man despite his tendency on occasion to be obsessive. So he searched through the club house and the locker room and around the putting green.

 Finally he drove home and search the house and finally found the cap in a trash can in the basement to which his wife had committed it because it was so ugly. Then he drove back to the golf course and caught up with his friends on the tenth hole.

It didnít rain.

Psalm 51:1-2,10-11,15,17

1 Have mercy on me, O God, according to thy steadfast love;  according to thy abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin!
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy Spirit from me.
15 O Lord, open thou my lips, and my mouth shall show forth thy praise.
17 The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
