Echoes from the Campfire

A real man finishes a job he takes on, and he doesn’t expect to be nursemaided along just because life throws a few potholes in front of him.”
–Douglas Hirt  (“The Kid”)

“Tears of joy will stream down their faces, and I will lead them home with great care.  They will walk beside quiet streams and on smooth [trails] where they will not stumble.  For I am Israel’s father, and Ephraim is my oldest child.”
 –Jeremiah 31:9 (NLT)
