Gaining Altitude — Growth Opportunities for the Week

Chaplain (Maj.) Jason Knudeson
412th TW chaplain

Through our character – an opportunity to reflect on important issues in our community
The Power of Choice:  We have each been given a choice whether to be assigned here at Edwards. For many that choice was simply, “Like It Or Not.” That may not seem like much of a choice, but, believe it or not, there is great power in that simple phrase. You have the option to CHOOSE to like your assignment here. Each of us has the option to maintain a positive attitude regardless of the situation, and when we struggle, we can remember that we have multiple sources of help available.

Through our prayers — an opportunity to pray for the needs of our community
– Source of all hope, give us strength to reach for the best in life, and thereby to provide strength and hope to others.

All of this week's top headlines to your email every Friday.
