THESE TEN RESOLUTIONS ARE BASED ON THE TEN RESOLVES OF SCOUTING

ANGELA & I WERE INVOLVED WITH THE SCOUT MOVEMENT WHEN YOUNG !

 

1.  TRUSTWORTHY ~ We all need to be Trusted & to Trust OTHERS

2.  LOYAL ~ We need to be Loyal to our Families ~ Employers & Country

3.  HELPFUL ~ WE should never be too BUSY to help OTHERS

4.  BROTHERLY ~ We should treat OTHERS as our Brothers & Sisters 

5.  COURTEOUS ~ We should show RESPECT to OTHERS in all circumstances

6.  KIND ~ Society is becoming more Selfish & Aggressive ~ show KINDNESS 

7.  OBEDIENT ~ If we all obeyed Law & Order ~ We*d have a Better World 

8.  CHEERFUL ~ Count your Blessings ~ it will make you SMILE

9.  THRIFTY ~ HAPPINESS is *Living within ones ASSETS* ~ AMEN ! 

10. PURE in Body & Mind !  Always be in control of ONES ACTIONS ! 

 

Thanks for reading ~ comments welcome ~ LOVE for 2020 ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

 

Many of us have been members of the International Scout Movement

and are familiar with these TEN RESOLVES !  Characteristics which

make LIFE better for everybody. We used to renew them every Year

to remind ourselves how we should react in SOCIETY to bring Honour

to the SCOUT MOVEMENT & Our Country. We think they still form a

Positive Basis for our GENERAL RESOLUTIONS in 2020.

 

The PICTURE is borrowed from MICHAEL EDWARDS Poem for today !

It reminded US of how 2020 looks at the START of the YEAR ... BUT

if we put the TEN RESOLUTIONS into PLACE all abstractions will be

RESOLVED !  Love Joy & Peace to ALL Angela & Brian  ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

    What more could we want?!
    Dib, dib, dob, dob! Can Fido join the Scouts, as a watch-dog? He may be very fierce! And probably stricter rules than these - no merriment, ardour, or such-like, and not too much fun! lol.
    C'mon now Fido, have a new year bone! Woof!

      Thnaks UNCLE STEVE ~ Scouts do favour DOGS more than CATS and one Troop I was in w had a BLIND SCOUT with a GUIDE DOG ~ interestomg ! Fido would be very welcome as a Hon. Member because he has all the TRAITS I mentiom in the POEM ! He might be a bit of a DAMPNER round the camp fire ! Camp fire songs can contain innuendos ! Please keep ANDY at the top of your PRAYER LIST !

      A Blessed 2020 for YOU & YOUR HIPPY HOUND
      Love in the Spirit ~ ANGELA & BRIAN

          Your very welcome

        • Michael Edwards

          I aspire to all ten of these - just hope I prove to be worthy. And thanks for the honour of chosing my work to illustrate your poem today.

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            BRIAN HERE ~ Thanks ! UNCLE MIKE ~ pleased you approve of our *borrowing* your latest ABSTRACT ! When we had completed the Poem we were looking for a suitable Poem and when I saw Yours ~ I immediatley felt it illustrated the CHAOS of 2020 which we hope & pray will all be resolved by 2021 ~ You might care to paint a less abbstact one to show we have made progress. We will send your fee to the Giude Dogs for the BLIND !

            Blessings & Peace for 2020 to YOU & YOURS
            Love ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

            Totally agree with your resolutions, especially the first one, trust is so important.
