“That which causes us trials shall yield us triumph: and that which make our hearts ache shall fill us with gladness. The only true happiness is to learn, to advance, and to improve: which could not happen unless we had commenced with error, ignorance, and imperfection. We must pass through the darkness, to reach the light.”
Albert Pike


I would like to thank you all who attended the Thanksgiving dinner this year, we had a great turnout and of course, a superb dinner catered by Terrel Blalock's catering service.

Since I am on the subject of dinner, we have a Christmas dinner coming up on December 8th at 6:30 pm. The Jobs daughters will also be having their bake sale that night and I know they will have some delicious treats to choose from. This will also be our awards night.

This will be my last article as Junior Warden and I must say, just as at every station of the lodge there has been certain unspoken life lessons experienced or perhaps confirmations. These are all a part of that great journey to the east, but as in all journeys, sometimes, we run into road blocks or detours but we eventually arrive at our destination. Perhaps, by taking that detour, we may experience things we might not otherwise, thus making us wiser and stronger.

Remember that time, patience, and perseverance can accomplish all things and the Temple will yet be completed.

Act by the Plumb,
Junior Warden
