ESTABLISHED MARCH 1, 183?.
By J. Troy Hickman
IT HAS BKICM SAID
This completes the pirn* begun
last week. Parts in quote marks
"Hf yo 'self. Do not protend af-
fection.'' 'In be oneseif is not only
easier, but is more successful and
effective, provided thai the .self is
a good one.
Pretense seldom works in the
presence of intelligent people. Af-
fection can seldom be faked con-
vincingly. One can be court coils
toward someone he does not care
for, without pretending to care.
"Do not be cynical about love;
for in the face of all life's disen-
chantment, it is as. perennij11 as the
grass." Yes, love defies all efforts
to understand il. Like the weather,
it just is. Thank goodness it is,
because without it life would be a
"Take kindly the counsel or the
years, gracefully surrendering the
things of youth." Mileage piles rp
on the speedometer, whether we
want it or not. And the mileage
makes a difference, whether we
know it or not.
When life takes one tiling away,
if compensates us with something
else. Age, like youth, has its as-
sets and its liabilities. So many
older people i know are accepting
age gracefully and graciously. Most
n! them don't try vainly lo bolster
their egos with cliches like "You
are only as old as you feel", etc.
Attitudes do have something to do
w ith our .fU'Ccs of lxihig. But the
fact is — so it seems to me —
that we are as old as wo are, —
so why kid ourselves.
I have come through the fevers
and swift waters of youth, through
the res|)onsibilities and burdens of
mii'.lie age. Now I am starling lo
be an old man. Would 1 go back,
if 1 co ld? Not on your life. It
was good then, but now I am en-
joying some of the calm and peace
that can come to one in the latter
years, and 1 like it.
"Nurliin strength of spirit to
shield you in sudden misfortune. I
guc.-s thai means, build up a bal-
ance in the soul bank, for you
may have to draw a check on il.
Remember Jesus' .story about the
foolish girls in a night wedding
processional, who had no extra oil
for the lamps'.' (See Matthew 25:
"ho not distress yourself with
imaginings." This i- not contrary
In the last paragraph above, though
it may seem to be, The first means
that in this world everyone will
have some troubles. The second
means that one need not see a
danger behind every li sh. There
are enough real troubles without
imagining any more. Most troubles
are worse in anticipation than in
fact. Resides, one can seldom fig
lire out where the next blow will
come from, oi do much to ward
it off Strength and confidence are
the best defenses.
"Many fears are lx rn of fatigue
and loneliness." Did you ever no-
lice how scary il is to be alone
in the dark. Rut when daylight
comes, we wonder why we were
"Reyond a wholesome discipline,
In gentle with yourself.'' Never be
too hard on yourself. Other m-ople
will do that for you. Re honest
with yourself, face facts; but like
yourself. God made yot. You are
his child, whatever you may have
done, failed to do, or become. If
you don't value yourself, how can
you cherish others, or they cherish
you? Jesus put it. "Love your
neighbor as yourself."
"You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the
stars; you have a right lo be here."
So why explain or apologize, or
try to justify yourself. No one ex-
c< pt God has the right lo call you
on the carpet to acounl.
"Whether or not it is clear lo
you, no doubt the universe is un-
folding as it should." There are
lots ot Doom Savers talking and
writing today. No doubt many
things are not what they should

probably never will l>e lo the satis-
faction of lis all. Meanwhile God
