Echoes From the Campfire

You never stop learning.  Keep an open mind.  Be ready for anything, because when you least expect it, something will happen, you can bet on that.”
              –Bobby Cavazos  (The Cowbow From the Wild Horse Desert)

    “Therefore, get your minds ready for action, being self-disciplined, and set your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
              –1 Peter 1:13 (HCSB)
Finally starting to get over this sickness.  I was sure feeling poorly.  That’s why no Echo on Monday and why it came out late a couple of other days.  Still have a cough, but feeling better.
    I was just glancing at my first story about Miles Forrest.  He is not mentioned by name, but the first one about him was February 18, 2010.  Since then he has become a weekly regular.  I might miss a day or two, and nobody will say anything.  For example, this week, no one mentioned that I didn’t write an Echo on Monday.  However, if I miss a Tuesday writing about Miles I will definitely get some feedback.  Sorta makes ol’ Miles feel good.
    I remembered the old radio serials, and magazine serials where you had to wait until the next week to find out what happened and that is the way I’ve tried to set Miles up the past few years.
    “As he sipped the coffee, I heard an audible sigh indicating that he approved…”
    Let me tell you something.  I am so sick of whining babies and their tantrums!  Banging on Carlson’s home, protesting…who knows what, and why, because they are spoiled brats.  They want free this and free that.  They need soap taken to their mouths because of the obscenities that spew forth.  Where is the world has common decency gone?
    And take the caravan that is moving toward the border.  Immigration is not wrong.  The whole point of the matter is simply a word–illegal.  Do things right!.  But remember, deconstructionism.  Right is only right in how it concerns them; nothing else matters, not you, not me.
    Let me tell you friend, there’s a great day coming!  
Ponder This:  “He does not withhold the good from those who live with integrity.” (Psalm 84:11, HCSB)  Another version, the ESV, puts it this way, “No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.”  We can boast of our Father’s generosity only as we experience it personally.  “The Father’s generosity is not given to those who choose to sit on the couch watching television all day.  You must get up and walk with him, and when you do, the floodgate of heaven opens and all the resources that Christ won for us suddenly become available.”  (Carter Conlon)
