PRAYERS AND POEMS FOR SCOUTERS
CS Roundtable Prayer
Cub Scouting Roundtable
Lord, for rest, fun and friendships,
You have given us play.
To “Do Our Best” and be good sports,
The rules we will obey
Grant us humility if we are number one,
If we’re not, remind us Lord,
That we play the games for fun!!
A change in behavior
begins with a change in the heart –
Sign in front of First
Assembly of God Church in Carney’s Point, NJ. I did a web search and found
the quote in several places but did not find a source. I was thinking how
thought provoking this saying is and how pertinent to Scouting. We are
trying to affect the hearts and minds of boys to make them good citizens for
life. Commissioner Dave
“Leadership is the art of
accomplishing more than the science of management (or your District
Exec – CD) says is possible.” Colin Powell
What Shall You Give
What shall you give to one small boy?
A glamorous game, a tinseled toy,
A whittling knife, a puzzle pack,
A train that runs on curving tracks?
A picture Amok, a real live pet----
No, there's plenty of time for such things yet.
Give him a day for his very own---
Just one small by and his dad alone.
A walk in the woods, a romp in the park,
A fishing trip from dawn to dark.
Give the gift that only you can---
The companionship of his old man;
Games are outgrown and toys decay---
But he'll never forget if you give him a day.
Circle Ten Council
I may never see tomorrow;
there's no written guarantee,
And things that happened yesterday belong to history.
I cannot predict the future, and I cannot change the past,
I have just the present moment; I must treat it as my last.
I must use this moment wisely for it soon will pass away,
And be lost to me forever as a part of yesterday.
I must exercise compassion, help the fallen to their feet,
Be a friend unto the friendless, make an empty life complete.
I must make this moment precious for it will not come again,
And I can never be content with things that might have been.
Kind word I fail to say this day may never be unsaid,
For I know not how short may be the path that lies ahead.
The unkind things I do
today may never be undone,
And friendships that I fail to win may nevermore be won.
I may not have another chance on bended knee to pray,
And thank my God with humble heart for giving me this day
I may never see tomorrow, but this moment is my own.
It's mine to use or cast aside; the choice is mine, alone.
I have just this precious moment in the sunlight of today,
Where the dawning of tomorrow meets the dusk of yesterday
