What Others Say!
Worst Kind Of Wastrel
We know an elderly man in another
community who has worked hard all
his life, saved his money and is quite
comfortably fixed f inanclally.
Although he doesn't have a college
education, he is well read and has a
good mind. He's in excellent health
and should live to be a hundred and
of his life he should
be reasonably happy.
But he isn't.
As a matter of fact, he appears to be
miserable. As a consequence he makes
those around him ill at ease and
We have never seen the gentleman
smile. We have never heard him say a
complimentary word about anyone or
He disapproves of the younger gener-
ation. He is at odds with his pastor
and some members of his church. He
continually lambasts the government
and nothing the administration does
meets him approval. And he hates
liberals with a passion looking
on them with more contempt than a
He cried out with an anguished wail
against waste in government.
But, alas, he's the worst wastrel
He is wasting the greatest
commodities in the world today
love, understanding, compassion,
He is wasting himselfl
He could be a great force for good in
his community, his church and his
state. He could be a joy to his relatives
and neighbors. He could be a source of
inspiration and encouragement for
His robust health, good mind, talents
and financial security equip him to
spend his twilight years in pleasant
constructive pursuits. Instead he
bathes himself in cynicism, bitterness
aid in crimination.
.Who is this man?
He is one of many who can be found
across the length and breadth of this
great land of ours.
He's afraid of change. He has become
warped in his thinking and has
misinterpreted the basic tenets on
which this nation was founded. He
believes "loyal opposition" means
intolerance of the views of others.
He believes Christianity means
everyone should knuckle under to his
views. He boasts of his patriotism
yet he disapproves of everything his
government does or stands for.
He is more to be pitied than censored
for he leads a humorless, miserable
existence. He has lost faith in all the
good things that life has to offer.
He is the wastrel the worst kind
of one. Lewisville Leader

Above And Below
That mighty oak with arms so wide
Has weathered many an angry storm-
The roots have spread on every side
And pierced to depths beyond their norm
It sheltered many a bird and beast
And blessings to them did bequeath;
But honor goes, to say the least
To what Is unseen down beneath.
That edifice that pierced the sky
Was founded In the solid rock
And braced and trussed in every ply
Then reinforced in every block
And as we contemplate this shrine
It makes our hearts within us glow-
We see the superstructure fine,
Forgetting what is down below.
That man with head above the cloud
Has climbed the rugged road to fame
And far outstripped the common crowd
And earned his justly honored name.
There Is a reason, I confess
As sure as there's a sky above
For almost every man's success
Is based upon a woman's love.
All life, we kriow, is based on death
Which we approach with every breath-
The big fish feeds on smaller fry
The bats and spiders eat the fly;
All death enriches mother earth,
For without death there is no birth.
The source of life we fain would know:
It might be in the earth below.
But what of our immortal soul
With earth its home and
Heaven its goal?
The Bible does this comfort give -
"God's Son hath died tnat we might live-
That He'll receive us at His throne
And crown us as His Very Own."
Perhaps, that's all we need to know
On this terrestrial ball below.
