Echoes From the Campfire

Echoes From the Campfire

      “Here the news that forced him to think of himself as a man somehow related to and responsible to his kind. He had gone to and fro over the trails of the desert, and many adventures had befallen him. He had lived them, with the force the desert seemed to have taught him, and then had gone his way down the lonely trails, absorbed in his secret.”                         --Zane Grey  (Wanderer of the Wasteland)       "Who led you through that great and terrible wilderness, in which were…See More

Echoes From the Campfire

      “The desert or mountain man was forever lifting his eyes to the peaks or to the stars; it was no wonder that men of the wilderness knew so much about the flight of birds and the habits of animals. In cities a man's eyes were on the ground, or rarely above eye level.”                         --Louis L'Amour  (Kid Rodelo)       "For You are my rock and my fortress; therefore for Your name's sake, lead me and guide me."                         --Psalm 31:3…See More

Echoes From the Campfire

      “I love to see some of the gnarled old trees; cedars and bristle-cone pines are favorites of mine, for so often they live where it doesn't seem possible to live. They grow right out of rocks, gnarled and twisted and old . . . but strong, stronger than anything but time, and they are part of time.”                         --Louis L'Amour  (Under the Sweetwater Rim)       "He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also…See More

       "I think that God allows things to happen because of our stupidity, then we have to pay the cost, or someone does."       --D.C. Adkisson  (Redemption)       "Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving."     --Colossians 4:2 (NKJV)     One thing for sure you need to survive in this wicked world is prayer.  Prayer keeps the communication line open with God.  There are many books on how to pray, a method of prayer, etc.  The thing that must be done is to pray. …See More

       “For it was our way to go onward; to go forward and to try to shape our world into something that would make our lives easier, even if more complicated. Our struggle was for time. Our leisure was bought from hardship, and we needed leisure to think, to dream, to create.”                    --Louis L'Amour  (Bendigo Shafter)       "Think back on those early days when you first learned about Christ.
