Echoes from the Campfire

Nobody in his right mind invites difficulties, you simply cope with those that do arise.  But you don’t try to avoid your duties.”
–Louis L’Amour  (The Californios)

“But my people are not so reliable, for they have deserted me; they burn incense to worthless idols.  They have stumbled off the ancient highways and walk in muddy [trails].”
–Jeremiah 18:15 (NLT)
