Happy 94th birthday to the Boy Scouts of America. 

Be watching for that big 100th birthday Jamboree in 2010!!!  I graduated from Cubs to Boy Scouts in 1960, the 50th anniversary of the BSA.  That Jambo was in Colorado Springs (I went to Valley Forge in 1964)!!


The Blessing in "NO"

Author Unknown

Circle Ten Council

I asked God to take away my pride.
God said "No".
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said "No".
Her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience.
God said "No".
Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is earned.

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said "No".
I give you blessings, happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said "No".
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said "No".
You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said "No".
I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.

I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as he loves Me.
God said... Ahhhh, finally you have the idea!

Roundtable Prayer

Cub Scouting Roundtable Planning Guide

The men and women who settled our state saw more than land to build upon.  They had a vision of what the land could be.  We, as leaders of Scouts, have a vision of what our Scouts could be leaders of tomorrow.  Guide our words and our actions as we build for the future.  Amen.

What Be A Webelos?

Jake McCoy, A Webelos Scout in Virginia

Way below the Webelos

Gnashed his gnarly teeth

When scratching at a google tree

And the mombills beneath

Eyes of flame, claws of stone

Fillipools run in fear

Webelos whiffle through the trees

Listen, can you hear?

Terror! Terror!  In the glens

The sight that no one knows

They hunt the running merrigans

What be a Webelos?
