February 8th National Boy Scout Day
Though they have had their issues over the last few years the Boys Scout organization does stand to make young men better men. It was founded by W.D. Boyce in 1910, seeing that our youth needed some guidance. If you don’t think the same need holds true today then you are probably someone who needs the Scouts today. The idea was to teach young men to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. All pretty good qualities to have.
How to celebrate – Become a Boy Scout leader. Don’t forget the Girl Scouts! Teach your children well. Go camping. Learn anew skill.
Okay, so here is a day that is somewhat subjective. What kind of man do you consider Fabulous? What kind of a man do you consider wild? Well, if you know one that you consider is one or the other, today is not for them… they have to be both.. at the same time.
And is the feast about having dinner with them or about looking at them, or… again… both? What one considers makes someone fabulous, or wild, can vary so I doubt we will get everyone to agree on today. However, all things considered, this might be a good thing to be kept private. The feast, however, is open to celebration so long as no one really knows what you are feasting about.
Remember too that fabulous does not mean popular or great all the time. Einstein probably was never considered a hunk but he was great, and he was fabulous! I doubt that wild would apply in his case but what is considered wild by one may not have the same definition by another.
And then there are those that might be considered both fabulous and wild but not necessarily someone you would want to feast with, or over. So who do you consider consider both fabulous and wild? Do you actually know them or are they just someone you think is fabulous and wild?
For me, but I am a man, the most fabulous is obvious. And, considering what he did while he was alive, could be considered wild as well. And we all know what feast we celebrate with Him.
How to celebrate- Make a list of your most fabulous and wild men. Have a lunch at a gym. Go ahead and dream
