Plattsmouth Newsletter-- January 5, 2011
God Bless Our Troops
Take twelve whole months.
Clean them thoroughly of all bitterness,
Hate, and jealousy.
Make them just as fresh and clean as possible.
Now cut each month into twenty-eight, thirty, or
Thirty-one different parts,
But don't make up the whole batch at once.
Prepare it one day at a time out of these ingredients.
Mix well into each day one part of faith,
One part of patience, one part of courage,
And one part of work.
Add to each day one part of hope,
Faithfulness, generosity, and kindness.
Blend with one part prayer, one part meditation,
And one good deed.
Season the whole with a dash of good spirits,
A sprinkle of fun, a pinch of play,
And a cupful of good humor.
Pour all of this into a vessel of love.
Cook thoroughly over radiant joy,
Garnish with a smile,
And serve with quietness, unselfishness,
You're bound to have a happy new year.

A SHORT STORY
My wife really wanted us to rent a convertible while we vacationed in Maui. I checked into it and the cost was just way out of line with our budget. So I told her I didn’t see how we could and she was disappointed, but still grateful to be going.
Well, when I walked up to the rental car counter, the young lady greeted me warmly with a nice “Aloha!,” entered my name in the computer, and welcomed me to Maui.
“We’re glad to be here,” I told her. “My wife and I have been trying to get here for nearly three years. This dream trip of hers is my birthday present to her.”
“How nice of you,” she said and kept on typing in the computer. Then she said, “Dr. Faucette, would you be interested in upgrading from your compact car to a convertible for only $63 more…and I’ll give you 10% off of your bill?”
Of course I took it, realizing that a good time had been prepared for us. Just like goodness is prepared for you in 2011. Preparations for a good time are made for you. So enjoy making a positive life in the New Year.
I hope you enjoyed this week's newsletter. Please feel free to email me any thoughts, ideas, pictures or any information you would like to see included in future newsletters. Please get the information to me no later than Monday morning @ 8 a.m. to be included in the following Wednesday edition.
Thank you for your support and be well.
