God knows what He’s doing for all of us. He is the Potter and we are His clay. May the teacup story become our story, as we willingly yield to our Potter’s hand.

Our DDGM’s will take their teacup to each chapter, teaching lessons of our ritual and traditions of the Order.

Veteran’s Day, The Red Poppy represents remembrance. I always went with Grandmother Cora to the American Legion on Memorial Day to hand out poppies and accept donations. I chose the red poppy to honor Sister Brenda Goings, Past Grand Matron and Brother Ted Kolb, Past Grand Patron and the entire 2019 Grand Family.


Most Americans view the Geranium as a symbol of happiness and clever minds, sending a clear message of love and friendship. I chose this flower to honor the Past Grand Matrons and Past Grand Patrons.

PSALM 46:10

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”


Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

PSALMS 23:1-6

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff,
they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

JOHN 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

ESTARL – help those who have chosen to go into the ministry.


A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to our military veterans. We recognize and honor ill, injured, and wounded disabled veterans and their families through adaptive and competitive activities such as guided fishing, hunting, shooting, archery, 4-wheeling, or just simply relaxing around the campfire. Warriors are never alone on the battlefield and shouldn’t be alone when they come back home. Healing in the great outdoors with Camp Valor Outdoors and reconnecting with fellow warriors is therapeutic and essential to healing.
