Chaplain's Corner

Greetings from your Chaplain: Herman W. Carter

Greetings Shipmates,

As the Thanksgiving season is approaching, lets stop and reflect on God's goodness to each of us. l found a poem that I would like to share with you.

How to Observe Thanksgiving

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;

Count your gains instead of your losses.

Count your joys instead of your woes;

Count your friends instead of your foes.

Count your smiles instead of your tears;

Count your courage instead of your fears.

Count your full years instead of your lean;

Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.

Count your health instead of your wealth;

Count on God instead of yourself.

In closing, let us remember to continue to pray for our nation, our President and leaders, and our men and woman who serve our great nation.
