PRE-CAMP MORNING WATCH

ALMOST FEBRUARY!

THE MONTH OF LOVE

 

 

Many of us will argue that  that should really be: August!---Right?

 

Jesus, in all the time he was with us,

 gave us but one commandment--

 LOVE ONE ANOTHER!

We have two of the mightiest powers in the world available to us all of the time:

 

The power of prayer 

and the power of our own thoughts.

 

An attitude of prayer and   positive, loving thoughts will bring us close to adhering to this one big commandment!

 

Letís start with the thoughts, OK?

Bear with me, if you will ,all of you old timers, as I know you have heard this many times .

 

(Taught to me nearly 70 years ago!)

THE THOUGHT GARDEN

 

The heart is a garden

Where thought flowers grow.

The thoughts that we think

Are the seeds that we sow.

Each kind, loving thought

Bears a kind loving deed,

While a thought that is selfish 

Is just like a weed.

 

We must watch what we think

Each minute all day,

And pull up the weed thoughts,

And throw them away,

And plant loving seed thoughts

So thick in a row 

That there will be 

NO ROOM FOR WEED THOUGHTS TO GROW!

 

***********************************************

There is power in positive thoughts!

 

And even more power in positive prayer!

 

When all else fails- There is always prayer.

 

With this tremendous power at our disposal--Why do we wait for a crisis to pray?

 

Positive thoughts and positive prayer can bring such peace to our lives!

 

Unleash the powers of prayer and thoughts!

 

AND KEEP THEM POSITIVE!

 

You will see that miracles still do happen!

 

EVERY DAY!

 

When faced with a big problem it is so easy to become negative.

Then is when you really need to see the bright side of things!

 

Pull up the weed thoughts and throw them away!

And plant loving seed thoughts so think in a row

that there will be no room for weed thoughts to grow.

 

If y ou are having trouble doing this---

 

PRAY!

 

You may just experience a miracle.

 

Experiment with these two mighty powers--

 

THOUGHT AND PRAYER

 

Pretty soon, it may become a habit

 

and pretty soon you may find that you are able to

obey that special commandment.

 

 LOVE ONE ANOTHER

 

Not just in February and August but every day!
