All That Jazz

 

 

Session:  All That Jazz……

Theme:  To treasure the past, our heritage; working in harmony today, the present; anticipating the changes for tomorrow; so we can build a strong Order for those who come behind us. 

Aim:   To share smiles of happiness, hearts full of love, and the fun and frolic of Mardi Gras to everyone we meet showing them that being a member of this Order is more than just belonging.

Motto: 
Time flies; live each day as if it were your last.
 

Daily Thought:  There will be peace within our Order when the POWER OF LOVE is shown to all by all; as opposed to the chaos and mayhem the LOVE OF POWER produces.


Worthy Grand Matron’s Scriptures: 

Ecclesiastes 3:1, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”

Matthew 6:19-21, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust    doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal; For where your  treasure is, there will your heart be also.”


Worthy Grand Patron’s Scripture:

 

Psalm 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”


 

Worthy Grand Matron and Worthy Grand Patron’s Prayer:  “Serenity Prayer”

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.”

 
 Daily Thoughts:    - There is a time and a place for everything, we should learn the difference.
                                    - May those who come behind us, find us faithful.

                                    - Mardi Gras – The feast before the fast.  May we always remember that Jesus died for us so we can live forever.  Lent is a very special time of year; a time of remembrance. Mardi Gras reminds us of this special time of year and we should celebrate its meaning daily.  

 

Watchwords:          Courage; to stand up for what is right
                                    Loyalty; to all things
                                    Strength; to continue in every good work
                                    Beauty; find the beauty deep within you and let it shine for all to see


 Honor Station:        Esther; whose legacy is admired and cherished today, and whose courage,   strength, and loyalty was steadfast and true.  And finally, she took a chance, stood firm, won the battle, and changed her world.     Are we ready to change our world (Order)?

 

Emblems:                 Crown and Scepter - an emblem of royalty and power

                                    Crown of thorns – a reminder of the pain Christ endured for us

                                    Cross - an emblem of His ultimate gift to us – his life and our salvation

                   

Symbols:                  Treasure Chests of Memories - an emblem of our great heritage:  We should treasure our family, friends, and life.  The challenge in life is to find the key that helps us find our own happiness, for only then can we truly treasure every moment.

                                    Grandfather Clocks and all timepieces - to remind us that time flies; what we would like to see accomplished we need to take care of now, for tomorrow may never come.
