February can bring with it both reminders of winter’s firm grip and the hope of the spring to come. While snow may be on the ground, we begin to notice the sun staying up just a little longer each evening encouraging us to remain steadfast as the change of seasons is indeed on the way. This change of season reminds me of words my pastor has shared many times,” that without change there can be no growth”. If we intend to grow in whatever capacity, we have to be willing to accept and make the necessary changes to do so. Just as the mighty oak requires the change of season to grow its leaves after a long winter slumber, we too require change in order to grow. I challenge us all to look within ourselves and make the changes necessary to grow in the areas we feel we fall short.
We have another full docket for the February stated. Most importantly, we will be receiving our District Deputy Grand Master, Right Worshipful Mike Kelly, at this month’s communication. He will introduce us to the Grand Master and elaborate on his initiatives for the year. There will also be a brief program presented by Rt. Wor. Henry Sharber, our Lodge Education Officer and two Eagle Scout recognitions among other business. I encourage all who can attend to come out and join us. As always, there will be another fantastic meal prepared by the Craftsman’s Club and good times to be shared by all. I look forward to seeing you there.
