January Reflections

Legionnaires, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! 2020 was a challenge and if it grew you closer to God then it was a good thing for your preparation for eternity! We have much to reflect upon in January, so let’s start the New Year with some blessings from God!

January second is Swiss cheese day! The third is Women Rock Day! The fourth is National Spaghetti Day! The 5th is National Bird day, 6th is National Bean day, 7th National Tempura Day, 8th Bubble Bath Day, the 9th National Apricot Day, 10th Houseplant Appreciation Day, 11th National Hot Toddy Day, 12th National Marzipan Day, the 13th National Peach Melba Day, the 14th is Organize Your Home Day, the 15th is Strawberry Ice Cream Day, the 16th is International Hot and Spicy Food Day, the 17th is Hot Buttered Rum Day.

As part of our Challenge 22 efforts, I have been in contact with the American Association of Christian Counselors and we are being offered a faith based Mental Health Life Coach Certificate through Legion Church. It is about 45 hours of online training and the $2400 tuition has been waived, so the only cost is a $54.00 administration fee. I already have several people from around the state enrolled in the program. If you would like to know more, please email me at or call me at 863-661-9999.

Let’s be proactive together in preserving “For God and Country” and let’s be proactive together in reaching out into our communities and serving our veterans and their families. Let’s be proactive together and go help somebody….

I am here for you, feel free to join and participate on Facebook,

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
John 15:13

For God and Country,

Barry Roberts
