“Show me your hands. Do they have scars from giving? Show me your feet. Are they wounded in service? Show me your heart. Have you left a place for divine love?” ~ Fulton J. Sheen

We all learned (or were at least taught) as kids that, “it’s better to give than receive.” As parents, are we modeling this for our children? As officers and NCOs, are we modeling this for our Airmen? As Airmen, are we putting our words into action by helping our fellow Airmen? Too often we become so self-engrossed we forget those around us may be in a greater need than ourselves. Let God’s divine love have a place in your heart and then share that love with others that He brings into your life.

Blessings from Above …

Chaplain’s thoughts …

“You can’t gain weight, unless you overeat!” This gem of a quote from dear old dad is just one of many homespun lines of paternal wisdom that marked my childhood.
