Phather Phil’s Prayer
Heavenly Father, I’m all in! That’s fun to say if we were playing poker, but with head held at waist height, hands on knees you say that and everyone knows you’re spent, pooped, you gave it your all. Help us put the two together Lord. Help us want to come to you and say “I’m All In” every morning and repeat it at night with head bent over, with our hands on our knees, saying: “Thank you Lord — same time tomorrow?” Amen!

The girl’s had their turn with the oratorical contest today and all proved to be quite amazing speakers. Student “A” , Anna Lechleiter from Alter High School, stated that “each person should have a stamp of optimism on their heart and when they go through rough times, they are resilient and they push through”. She further stated “a true optimist is a altruist – void of selfishness” . Student “B”, Chandini Peddanna from Watts Middle School, reminded us that “not everybody can automatically be an optimist, because it’s like a muscle – the more you use it, the stronger it becomes”. Student “C”, June Powell from Watts Middle School, said “optimism is critical for healing and is good for the immune system; while everyone gets down on themselves, remember to have positive thoughts because one good optimistic thought can change the situation”.
We want to thank all of the girls for their wonderful speeches on “What The World Gains From Optimism”, though a big congratulations goes out to Chandini on her win! She will compete with Benjamin Arehart in the final contest.

Sergeants at Arms
Though there were no happy bucks or sergeantsBat arms today, there was a battle between the Gary’s (Smiga and Hansen) over a pair of UD basketball Tickets – donated to the club by Vince Reidy. The heated, yet short lived auction ended with Gary Hansen being the winner and paying the $30 to the club.
