You know, we are all magicians.

It doesn’t take a magic hat; it doesn’t take a magic wand. Magic is always present in our lives.

The magic of a sunset, of a friend’s kind word or deed, or how we are loved and needed. These things can leave a magical feeling within us. The greatest way we can use the magic around us is by using it to quietly help others and not be so concerned about getting the credit.

Maybe we can provide magic for others by doing small deeds that will make another person wonder who did the deed for them. Cub Scouts, can you create a little magic for someone else this month?

Magic of The World
Capital Area Council

As parents, we want to show our sons the wonders of the world. In the eyes of a child, there are not just eight wonders of the world but eight million.  We want him to be able to look at the stars, sunrise, sunset, and feel their beauty.

  • We want them to see a world of love, laughter, and compassion.
  •  We want them to build strength within themselves of strong character and a sensitivity to the needs of others.
  •  We want them to be the best they can be.

Unfortunately, no one can wave a magic wand so that they will receive these things. We as leaders and parents must set the example to show the guidance so they may see the way to accomplish all of these things.  This is the magic; our example and guidance.

So as we leave, let’s be aware of our actions and how loudly they speak to our youth.
