Heart of America Council

In the season of happy days,
I’d like you to keep in mind
the recipe for a wonderful
day it works all year ‘round.

Recipe for a Wonderful Day

1 cup friendly words
2 heaping cups understanding
2 cups milk of human kindness
2 heaping tablespoons of time and patience

1 dash gentle humor
1 pinch spice of life
1 drop warm personality
Measure words carefully;
add cups of understanding
to milk of human kindness.

Sift together three times to
make a smooth paste, cook
with gas on the front burner.
 Keep temperature low so
it never boils over, Season
with gentle humor, warm
personality and spice of
life.  Serve in individual
molds. Works best with a
good mixer.


Heart of America

Arrangement.: Nine Cub Scouts come onstage, one by one; each carrying a large cardboard letter.  As he speaks his lines, he holds up his letter, which ultimately spells out the word Christmas.

C - C is for candles, we burn of Christmas night
To gladden weary travelers with their light so bright.

H - H is for happiest; the happiest time of year;
It’s jolly, gay old Christmas time, with all its mirth and cheer.

R - R is for ring; we ring the Christmas bell
All the Christmas gladness, the world to tell.

I - I is for the jnfant who lay in a manger
Little Lord Jesus, a dear little stranger.

S - S is for shepherds who kept their flocks by night;
And heard the angels singing, and saw a wondrous light.

T - T is for tree, all green and gold and red,
We see it Christmas morning when we jump out of bed.

M - M is for the mistletoe we hang at Christmas time;
In merry wreaths, when candles burn and Christmas bells chime.

A - A is for all; to all men we wish cheer,
Joy and gladness, love and hope, for Christmas time is here.

S - S is for the star that shone on Christmas night,
Star and candle, bell and wreath, all make our Christmas bright.
