Grand Knight's Message
We did it! Fish Fry II was a great night on most accounts. We served 740 meals with just a few hiccups. The team rallied around and we met every customers request. Congratulations to all those who worked so hard to make this a huge success.
As we continue in the Lenten season, I am reminded about the power of God's love and how He shows it to us in unique ways. A good friend of mine from my childhood that I have stayed in contact with just lost his Mother on Monday. He wrote on Facebook:
"I've kind of lost my faith in the last ten years or so. And that really kills me. I wish I didn't feel that way right now. Not for me, though. I wish that I believed in an afterlife, because there is nothing more that I would want for my saint of a Mom than to be reunited with the one true love of her life, my Dad."
I called my friend Michael and asked him who's lives have you positively touched, not only within your family but outside your immediate family. We chatted about that for awhile which totaled hundreds of people since he works in the service industry. I asked him if he thought having the personality and heart to touch so many was a blessing from God! We both cried a bit and talked some more. I am not sure if my simple call was a life changing moment for him but I certainly opened his faith door just a little bit.
We all make a wonderful difference in the world, sometimes small and sometimes big but many times we really have no idea the positive impacts we make. Our own faith keeps us striving to make those changes regardless if we know the impact or outcome! Keep up the good work!
