A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

December 2016

 

The President’s Message

By Mark Eley

 On Thanksgiving . . .

 One of the honors and responsibilities of the Presidency is this monthly message, where I get to write about what is on my mind with a potential audience of several hundred people.  On my mind at this time of year, and I hope yours as well, are the many things we all have in this country to be thankful for. 

 As for country, I must admit that I’m extremely thankful our recent Presidential election is behind us.  Many of us probably watched in open-mouthed horror at some of the things that transpired.  But now the rest of the world watches in envy at the transfer of power that is taking place.  How thankful I am for our Founding Fathers, for our Constitution and for the rights and liberties we all enjoy as Americans!  We are part of the best country and government ever created. 

I hope all of you can also share in my thankfulness for a family that loves me, health (that I will try to consider during the holiday season when faced with pie), and for careers in the fun and challenging world of HVAC&R.

But above all, I am thankful to the One that makes it possible for me to be thankful for anything and for Him slapping me upside the head nine years ago.  And to Him I dedicate the remainder of this message, through a poem by the British Poet Jane Crewdson:

At All Times

By Jane Crewdson, 1860 

O Thou whose bounty fills my cup,
With every blessing meet!

I give Thee thanks for every drop—
The bitter and the sweet.

I praise Thee for the desert road,
And for the riverside;

For all Thy goodness hath bestowed,
And all Thy grace denied.

I thank Thee for both smile and frown,
And for the gain and loss;

I praise Thee for the future crown
And for the present cross.

I thank Thee for both wings of love
Which stirred my worldly nest;

And for the stormy clouds which drove
Me, trembling, to Thy breast.

I bless Thee for the glad increase,
And for the waning joy;

And for this strange, this settled peace
Which nothing can destroy.

Have a safe and blessed holiday season!  I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting December 7th at Camp Aldersgate!
