Chaplain’s Corner

pro-deo-et-patria

After a long and unusually hot summer, fall has finally arrived and with it the return of a bit of refreshing rain. After spending a week in Southern California last month, where it was in the high 80’s and low 90’s, returning hometo the low to mid 60’s was a welcome relief to say the least. October shouldn’t be that hot!

That said, change is constant whether we like it or not. And if you’re not changing, you’re not living. All of life is about change and as I grow older I find it seems to get harder to accept it, much less enjoy it. Still I wouldn’t have it any other way. I certainly wouldn’t want my children or grandchildren to never grow up. It is a blessing and a joy to watch them grow and mature as they change.

There’s an old hymn I love entitled “Abide With Me”. One of the verses in it says this: “Swift to it’s close ebbs out life’s little day. Earth’s joys grow dim, it’s glories pass away. Change and decay in all around I see; Oh Thou Who changest not, abide with me”. What a blessing to know that our Creator is always near and no matter what the change or challenge we’re facing we can call on Him for comfort and help because He Never Changes.

At the Post, we are gearing up for a busy Veterans Day. There will be several activities we will be involved in for much of the day. Why not come on down and spend some time with your comrades or meet some new ones. The website has a list of all the activities we’ll be  participating in. Check it out at : www.hillsboropost6.org

May your day be filled with happiness and joy and blessings,

On another note, please contact me if you become aware of any illness or the passing of a member of our Post. My phone number is listed and if I don’t answer please leave me a message. I promise I will respond.  Thank you so much.

 

Blessings,
Lynn Hamm – Post 6 Chaplain
