    Charity: An outstretched hand
    A nurse left the bedside of a dying man. She grabbed a young man from the hall.
    They entered the room and the young man grabbed the older man's hand.
    He saw the the man was nearing his end and was having difficulty breathing.
    After a few hours, the older man met his maker and the young man left the room.
    He told the nurse that the man had passed away and asked, "who was he?"
    The nurse with shock on her face replied " I thought that he was your father... why did you stay?"
    The man replied, " That man needed his son and his son was not there."

    Heavenly Father, GOD, Almighty,
    Thank you for allowing us to fellowship yesterday.
    Thank you for keeping our families safe and for giving us life this Sunday.
    I humbly ask your continued protection of the members of Benjamin F Luke #127 and our family members.
    Guide us as we all strive to meet our obligations and fathers, husbands, and masons.
    Give us wisdom serenity to accept the things that we cannot change, courage to change the things that we can,
    and wisdom to know the difference.
    This I ask in the name of the G.A.O.T.U., Amen.

    May this prayer find you in the very best of health and spirits.
