Be Thankful for All Things

We have all seen them. They may be standing at a street corner holding a sign that shows that they are asking for money. Some of them may be willing to do work, but most of them just want some help. Most of these have fallen upon hard times. They may have a handicap of some kind that prevents them from working. Others may not even have a roof over their heads and are just begging so they can have something to eat today.

Today we hear a lot of discussion of moral compasses and absolute right. Often this discussion is followed by talk of political correctness and not imposing values on others. In Rotary, we have prescribed ourselves to a standard. It is not a religious teaching as Rotary is an organization that bridges the world and world religions. It is the Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do and is used by Rotarians worldwide as a code for business and personal relationships and action.

Happy Herman's Hideaway

Happy Herman's Hideaway

Hello dear San Saba friends! I hope you have been doing well since last we spoke. I have been using my power of imagination to think of warm beaches, bathing suits (not that I wear one), swimming pools and the sound of grass growing green and tall in the summer sun! I suppose I should be glad that I wear a natural coat I don’t have to grab from a closet or worry with putting on before going outside, but even with it, cold weather makes me feel like an ice cube in the back of the freezer!

Hang Your Hat With Rotary

This past week, Club President Bill Philpotts and I had the opportunity to spend some time after our meeting with a newcomer in town that came to see what Rotary is all about. She came with the desire to join an organization in our community that is trying to make a difference. Her specific interest was the youth of our community, but she also expressed a desire to reach beyond city limit signs to make a difference in our county, our state, our country and our world. I believe she has the heart of a Rotarian.

We discussed the things we do in our schools: dictionaries to third graders, books to the elementary and middle school libraries, our honor student banquet and the scholarships we have been able to give in the past. Each time we shared a little more depth of what and why we do these things, her eyes lit up a little more.

Last week I discussed several programs of Rotary International. I would like to continue to take the opportunity to give you a broader, global view of how our club impacts the world by being a part of a larger group. Rotary International reaches out to the world. As a global organization, it provides a multiplying effect of each and every local club.

Hang Your Hat With Rotary

“Of the things we think, say or do,” somewhat of an odd statement until you follow it with your guiding philosophy. We all have a “moral compass,” a “code of conduct,” or perhaps you call it the rudder of your “ship of life.” Each and every day, we are faced with decisions on how we are going to act or respond to events of life. Do we “take the high road” or do we just “wallow in the mire”?

Hill Country Naturalist

When it comes to deciding how to manage a native habitat, I always try to think about how Mother Nature did things before humans arrived and started to "manage" things and to "improve" the landscape. One thing I know for sure, Mother Nature didn't throw things away.
