FReeper Canteen ~ Sunday Chapel ~ AIM HIGH ~ 3 August 2014
Serving The Best Troops & Veterans In The World !! | The Canteen Crew

AIM HIGH


A college professor prepared a final exam for his students. The test questions were divided into three categories, and the students were instructed to choose questions from only one of the categories. The first category of questions was the hardest and worth fifty points. The second, which was easier, was worth forty points. The third, the simplest, was worth thirty points.

Upon completion of the test, students who had chosen the hardest fifty-point questions were given As.

The students who had chosen the forty-point questions received Bs.

Those who had settled for the easiest thirty-pointers were given Cs

Some of the students were frustrated with the grading of their papers and asked the professor what he was looking for. The professor leaned over the podium, smiled, and explained, 'I wasn’t testing your book knowledge. I was testing your aim.'"

Robert Kriegel put it this way: "The key is to have a dream that inspires you to go beyond your limits."

Dear God:
I ask that no Airman, Coast Guardsman,
Marine, Sailor, Soldier, Reservist, National Guardsman, or Merchant Marine
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

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our G-d from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May HASHEM cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is Hashem, your G-d, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

G-d bless and keep your children safe, Alouette.

Oh My....Today’s Sermon is so relevant to me right now.

Just for amusement, I took a sample SAT test online before coming to this thread.

I still can’t believe what just happened.

I got EVERY answer right. EVERY LAST ONE.

I guess I am not over the hill just yet!

LOLOLOL.

Over a half-century ago my 8th Grade Teacher, Sr. Margretta, O.S.B., inculcated in my classmates and me the maxim "Low aim, not failure, is a disgrace."
