It is a truth of life that in many ways it is easier to stand adversity than to stand prosperity. Ease has ruined far more men than trouble ever did. (William Barclay, The Letter To The Hebrews, p. 126)
"Truth is always strong no matter how weak it looks, and falsehood is always weak, no matter how strong it looks." (Phillips Brooks in Chapter-By-Chapter Bible Commentary by Warren W. Wiersbe, p. 841)
Fight for what's right. Fight for others. (Steve Case, Everything Counts, 16 December)
This morning I'm listening to the The Wronglers with Jimmy Dale Gilmore - Heirloom Music. I received this CD as a premium for supporting the PBS Internet radio station of WAMU - BluegrassCountry.org. For a while I thought the CD wasn't going to arrive.
Yesterday, Jim Mc. called to let us know he arrived safely in Gulfport, MS. We hope he has a wonderful time visiting with family and friends. In the evening I called Tom W. in Wichita, KS. Tom and I went to the same high school but didn't meet until the second year of college when he came to Pittsburg, KS.
