Fairbury Summer Reading Program

The topic was "Lessons Learned From My 40 Year Career Serving in the United States Army (or Mark's Top Thirteen):
1 Treat others as you would like to be treated.
2 Do your best every day.
3. Do the right thing. (Everything we need to know we really did learn in Kindergarten)
4. Get a good night's sleep, things will be better in the morning: Colin Powell.
5. The true joy of life is the trip.  The station is only a dream, it constantly outdistances us.  "Relish the moment" is a good motto, but even better yet is what the psalmist wrote in Psalm 118:24:  "This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."  As a little boy, my grandmother always told me this verse.  I am
happy to say it has stayed with me all of my life. It isn't the burdens of today that drive us mad. It is the regrets over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow.  Regret and fear are twin thieves who rob us of today.
