April's message from President Lion Bruce MacNair: April is a time for refreshing. The earth is refreshed with warm rain and sunshine, bringing forth the first tender shoots of spring. Everything is becoming new, exciting, and fragrant. The long, dreary sleep of winter will gradually become a distant memory.
Just as the earth refreshes Herself, so must we. Just as we feed our bodies, we must also feed our spiritual and emotional needs. We Coupeville Lions are, it would see, always very busy, serving each other and our community. Some of our members also wear two or more hats, since they also volunteer in various non-Lion roles. The danger is that it is all too easy to just go and go, and then one day you find yourself burned out.
The answer to this dilemma can be found by looking at the Lions emblem. First of all, it looks back on past accomplishments. So take a few minutes and think back to some of your more recent projects. Allow yourself to remember how it felt as you looked into the grateful eyes of a mom who received a “Meals on Wheels” delivery. Recall the grins on the faces of all those campers as you stand in the serving line at Camp Horizon. What about the happy faces you saw last September, as the Coupeville High School Seniors accept the scholarships that you worked so hard to raise. It really feels great, doesn’t it? So, for a little while, sit back and enjoy the reflections. Consider them a source of spiritual nourishment.
