FReeper Canteen ~ Sunday Chapel ~ YOU'RE THE ONE ~ 20 October 2013
Serving The Best Troops and Veterans In The World !! | The Canteen Crew

YOU'RE THE ONE


Les tells the story proudly now, with an ending that few would have ever predicted when he was in high school. He remembers the turning point as though it were yesterday. Just a chance encounter and an offhand comment... but it changed his life forever.

He had slipped quietly into the back of a classroom to wait for a friend that day. The last thing he wanted was to be noticed, but the teacher asked him to go to the board and work out a problem. Les pointed out that he wasn't a student in that class. "It doesn't matter," said Mr Washington, the teacher. "Go do it anyway." Les protested that he couldn't. Somewhat embarrassed, he added, "Because I'm 'Educable Mentally Retarded'."

At that point, the teacher came out from behind his desk, looked at the embarrassed teenager and challenged him, "Don't ever say that again. Someone's opinion of you does not have to become your reality".

The students laughed, of course, but Les didn't really mind so much. In a way, it was as though the teacher's comment had set him free. Someone had looked at him and seen possibilities. Les had never dared hope for that before. Perhaps he COULD move beyond the limits others had placed on him. Today, Les explains his awakening with the words of Goethe: "Look at a man the way that he is, he only becomes worse. But look at him as if he were what he could be, and then he becomes what he should be". That's how Mr. Washington became Les's mentor, and a constant source of inspiration.

While still a junior, Les heard something Mr. Washington told some graduating seniors. "You have greatness within you. If just one of you can get a glimpse of a larger vision of yourself, of who you really are, the world will never be the same again. You can touch millions of people's lives."

The amazing thing is that Les Brown did indeed go on to realize his dream. He has since produced a number of specials that have been shown on public television. As his old mentor had once predicted, once he found that "larger glimpse of himself," Les was able to "touch the lives of millions".

Even if we're "successful," I suspect most of us never catch that vision, never understand how special we are. Not really. We're too busy trying to be someone else. After all, we are constantly bombarded by powerful messages telling us what attributes society finds most desirable. And we respond by trying to make ourselves over in that image. For many, it's not even a matter of being the best looking, the brightest, or the most admired. It's a quest just to be "normal". Even big egos can be a way of hiding a sense of inadequacy, or a cry for attention.

The Bible's message is quite different. It reminds us that each person is created in God's image, with unique gifts and potential. No one else can make our contribution..or take advantage of our opportunities...or affect the world in just our way. Who knows the difference YOU might make if you were to discover that larger vision?

May you discover that vision.

CAPT J. David Atwater, CHC, USN

Stray Hearts

October 20, 2013

Last fall, an expressway in my city was shut down for several hours because a cattle truck had overturned. The cattle had escaped and were roaming across the highway. Seeing this news story about stray cattle made me think of something I had recently studied in Exodus 32 about the people of God who strayed from Him.

In the divided kingdom of ancient Israel, King Jeroboam erected two golden calves for the people to worship (1 Kings 12:25-32). But the idea of worshiping hunks of gold had not originated with him. Even after escaping brutal slavery and having seen the Lord’s power and glory mightily displayed, the Israelites had quickly allowed their hearts to stray from Him (Ex. 32). While Moses was on Mt. Sinai receiving the law from the Lord, his brother Aaron helped God’s people stray by constructing an idol in the shape of a golden calf. The writer of Hebrews reminds us of God’s anger over this idolatry and those who “go astray in their heart” (Heb. 3:10).

God knows that our hearts have a tendency to stray. His Word makes it clear that He is the Lord and that we are to worship “no other gods” (Ex. 20:2-6).

“The Lord is the great God, and the great King above all gods” (Ps. 95:3). He is the one true God!

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above. —Robinson
As long as you want anything very much, especially more than you want God, it is an idol. —A. B. Simpson

Read: Exodus 32:21-35

These people have committed a great sin, and have made for themselves a god of gold! —Exodus 32:31
Bible in a Year:
Isaiah 59-61; 2 Thessalonians 3

Dear God:
I ask that no Airman, Coast Guardsman,
Marine, Sailor, Soldier, Reservist, or National Guardsman
Feel alone or forgotten.

O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is loving kindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
And He will redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.

Psalm 130:7 & 8

GREETINGS TO CANTEENERS, FREEPERS, TROOPS, AND ALL THE SHIPS AT SEA!!

And has it REALLY been one year to the day, when Sarge and The Bride gave each other their vows on the beach? Hardly seems possible that one year has flow by, has it?

But, it certainly has, and what a year it's been! There's been joy, loss, gain, arguments (and then the fight started), but all through the months since that day on the beach, lots and lotsa love.

And now, one year later, Sarge and The Bride are taking a weekend to mark the occasion at the same hotel, at the same beach, and look back on the last year and look forward to the next. But as any hubby might do, the day just CAN'T seem to go by without SOME little token of esteem, I mean, SOMETHING to remember it....

So, here's what's now in The Bride's part of the driveway:

A new/used 2007 Jeep Wrangler Ultimate X, with all the trimmings we could afford!

After closing the deal, The Bride drove us across the bay and to the beach in her new Urban Assault Vehicle (which SHE has named "Towanda", of all things), and here we sit, eating from Sloppy Joe's and getting schnockered good and proper.

Tomorrow, we will be watching the Kite Festival from the balcony, strolling on the beach, and getting schnockered good and proper.

And at sunset on the Anniversary, we'll be watching the sun set on the Gulf, toasting the sunset, having a wonderful room-service dinner, and getting schnockered good and proper.

Does anyone see a pattern forming?

Sarge will be in the area all weekend, so Let's Have Fun!

Be very careful on those steps. My first job Monday morning is to call the stairlift folks. My Mom is not doing well making it up or down the last 5 stair steps to downstairs. We need to find a solution. I just had to go help her get down the last steps.

I got her a cane today. Hopefully she will use it for balance. She feels pretty comfortable when she can touch things, but there are places, like in the kitchen this morning, where she needs to stop and sit. She still won't use the walker, but tomorrow I will pick up the wheeled one from the friend who loaned it to us for my Dad.
