    Congratulations BROTHER!!!! Sorry I couldn't make it. The wife works late on Mondays and both of our baby sitters were unavailable :( I'm so happy that you've begun your Masonic journey!

    Thank you brothers. I was looking for you blake! I understand though, sometimes things don't go as planned. you were with me in spirit lol. Remember Blake, you were the one that got me rolling, and for that I will always be greatful. It was an excellent experience and I was told I did a great job! There will be another EA initiation this thursday which most likely I will attend.

    Great Job. Keep the enthusiasm and don't let anyone get cha down. It is an addicting organization so be careful.

    Definitely attend as many EA degrees as you can. It helps you remember your work and familiarize yourself with the functions of a lodge. And its fun, if you ask me. :)

    Very good advice!! Also if your Lodge runs a floor school to work on degree, take part in them. But take Bro. John's advice, it will definitely help you in your work.

    Have fun at the degree! If you show up to them often enough, you'll find yourself working them as I already have!

    Like I used to tell members of my college frat, the more you put into the fraternity, the more you'll get out of it. And I've found it to be wonderfully true of Masonry!

    First and foremost I congratulate you, my brother. The journey you have embarked on has just started, it shall impact you in ways that you have never foreseen in good and positive ways. I have been blessed by having brothers who can converse about any topic, whether in agreement or not, in a manner that is befitting the most diplomatic. I know without a doubt that if I ever have an issue my brothers are there for me and I for them.

    Masonry is one of the most addictive things, always look to the charge and reflect upon priorities. While I say that the more you put into Masonry the more you will receive. The work is important, but being a "MASON" is far more important. Your interactions, actions, and daily life are your testaments to who you are. Masonry supplements and improves upon the foundation that is already there.
