Chaplain's Corner

I had a rare pleasure this week: I reduced the pile of papers in my inbox to about an inch and a half tall and cleared every piece of paper off my desktop. That's a huge accomplishment for me. I had to celebrate this little victory – with a cup of coffee.

Have you ever had one of those days? You know the day. It starts out unassuming enough. You have grand plans, the newness of the day ushers into your mind all the great things you will accomplish and the amount of things you will check off of your to-do list. You begin to see the fruits of your hard labor and recognize that it really is not as bad as you think. Then you decide it is time to get out of bed and face the world and all the uncertainties it will throw at you.

There is a TV show on HGTV called "Love it or List it?" Experts on the show compete to have couples choose to either love their newly renovated home or to use the adjusted property value as a means to list the home and buy a different one. The Apostle John asks us for a decision in the New Testament Book of 1 John: Are we going to love the world or are we going to leave it behind? [reference 1 John 2:15-17.]

It was the second week of the 2001 NFL season. Big, Bad, Mo Lewis (NY Jets Linebacker) came around the corner and became "acquainted" with the New England Patriots Heisman winning quarterback, Drew Bledsoe. This "acquaintance" left Bledsoe with a sheared blood vessel in his chest. A no-name, boyish-faced, 6th round draft pick sat on the Patriots bench as their backup.

Being connected with the military often means traveling which plays a big part in growing up. Traveling and relocating to new areas of the world can be a great, life changing experience. Although it can be tough a time, looking at the bright side of things always helps.

Since Christmas break is around the corner and most of us won't know what to do with our time during the entire winter break. There is plenty to do and create but it may be harder since we rarely get snow, so building snowmen, snowball fights and making snow angels are kind of out of the question.

As the weather gets colder, some people are prone to get sick. Many of us are more so when the weather changes, especially when the weather changes rapidly.

Do you often experience symptoms such as sudden overwhelming fear, palpitations, sweating, trembling, shortness of breath, fear of dying and so on? These are all symptoms of anxiety. When I experience symptoms such as these, I know that it is time for me to take an azimuth check. I need to refocus and discover God's bearing for my life. The Bible instructs us in Philippians 4:6-7Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7) And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will ...

We all know the Thanksgiving holiday is coming up, and we need to realize all the things we are thankful for in life. We have a great deal to be thankful for. From the air we breathe to the food we eat, it all can be gone in seconds. Thanksgiving isn't officially here yet, but that doesn't mean you cannot be thankful any time before and after Thanksgiving.

Integrity is an Army value, and essential for every Soldier. Your abilities can take you far in life, but only your integrity can keep you there. Like a car tire without lug nuts is a talented person without integrity. Lug nuts may seem small or insignificant. After all, they are not a motor or a transmission. In fact, a car can run without a couple of them. But if you remove them all, it is only a matter of time before the wheels fall off and the car crashes and burns.

Sooner than later, we'll be off to the voting polls giving our input on who should be president and local officials in our area. Many of us don't know who and why we should pick a certain candidate because we're not politically advanced. The majority of us may decide who we want to elect based on the media, which sometimes isn't always accurate. We also can be overly influenced by the people we love. This is when we need to research and think for ourselves to form our own opinions.

Monday, Oct. 31 is recognized as Halloween in the United States, a day that children dress up in either cute or scary costumes in order to accumulate candy. But why is it that we dress our children up in either cute or scary costumes so that they might hasten their next trip to the dentist? I do not have a clear answer to this but I would like to share with you the religious meaning and a brief history of the day after Halloween.
