Chaplain Corner - February 2021
February 1, 2021
From the Chaplain’s Pen ………………………………..................…… Chaplain Al Lowe
Welcome to February, the “shortest” month of the year. The only month that grows every fourth year only to shrink during years 1, 2, and 3. I remember from my science classes that the growth and shrinking has to do with the amount of time it takes for earth to traverse the diameter of the sun. Go figure that out!
Times are rough for recruiting in the VFW. Meeting people, visiting people, the monthly VFW Post meetings are so difficult this year. It is so easy to figure it too dangerous to visit, but then we go to Walmart, some go to the Post for a beer (I get a diet-coke), or a picnic. The issue is to be careful and do smart things.
When people become hostile about wearing the mask, I tell them it is for me that they do not spread their COVID-19 germs. Too bad so many people think it is something to do with their right – to do dumb things.
Moving toward spring and summer. Right now, get your fishing pole cleaned, line changed, right baits purchased. Oil your baseball glove. Varnish your WOODEN bat. Get ready.
Always fun to talk with you -
Take care – do smart things.
