'INK in my VEINS' •y MARJAN INMAN '- ' 1 have been visiting the scenes of my .childhood in Moofhead, Minnesota and Fargo, N. Dak. and one has to search into the^ past to revive those scenes because many years have passed and many many changes have been made. The house where 1 was born and the homes of children 1 grew up with, have for many years been torn down and the acres are a part of the campus of Cortcordia College. The little feet bridge that made one of the biejest tteries el my childhood to my children is gene and the entire area so changed it i» a* If it never wa». The old wooden walk* ing and railroad bridge has long'since given way to a modern tteel structure and only memory'can picture the little Marian and her brother who loved to cross it to visit Grandmother and to whom It was a thrill to be able to walk from one state to another, (wonder if children today have as much fun as we did with whet was there plus our imagination. But I am sure they do in their way and times must move along. • Now we are in the Christmas season, lights and color and dolls and sleds and rustle of tissue paper and secrets and play practice and mothers busy making angel wings. 1 love this pre-Christmas rush and it makes me think back to the Christmases of long ago and the many lovely traditions my little German Grandmother Remley gave to us. I still love dolls and doll dishes and I am glad I have never lost the childhood expectancy of Christmas and what it means to all of us. I think it is good in the midst of this mad rush of a world to go back to our childhood dreams, our rainbows and our stars.. It will make us more amendable to take up our present duties and time out for a bit of a dream will not spoil us one bit. You just try it. Today as I write it is snowing and I hear the little birds as they happily eat the crumbs and grain that I have put out for them. They are a countless measure of joy for me. The world looks lovely and peaceful and it seems good for a moment to pause and forget tj?e trials of daily strife and hope it can be as peaceful as it seems. As Christmas approaches and I make plans for my Christmas entertaining for my grandchildren I hope that I can help them as my mother did with her example of courage, integrity, alertness to opportunities and honesty, topped with faith in God. She gave us love and security but she taught us that life does not hang its gifts upon a Christmas tree and invite you to help yourself. To get these things she told us you must get out in the middle of the stream and face the dangers, the hardships and the uncertainties of being pushed around by the force of the water. She taught us that gaining a place because of our natural talents and abilities is not easy but not to be discouraged. Keep at work, she said, and develop yourself until you have so much to offer that it will be taken note of. She told us always to put more into whatever we did and we would be rewarded not only with recognition but a deep inner satisfaction that money cannot buy. And so along with the material gifts let's make note of the gifts of the spirit in our Christmas giving. I hope you do not forget books as gifts when you are shopping. There are so many books that help awaken a hobby for our children and we all need a hobby of some sort to help us put away the cares of the day for awhile. There are so many gifts of traditions we can pass along. A precious heritage. Let's hope we can help our children see the importance of eliminating from our store of knowledge old prejudices; hatreds, jealousies and misconceptions. We have to do this first, before,we can hope to help OUT children see the ••. light.. We should .start JiiQUse- deanfng now so that the future generation will not beThandi- capped. It is time we paused a bit and look up to the stars. If we do we'll see the greatness of God and it will be easier to shed all of our hatreds, jealousies and misconceptions. Remember the wonderful missionaries of Kathmandu, - who said, "A man needs a far look once in a while to bring into proportion the little things that trouble him." And the things that trouble us are little, its just that we give them greater porportion because we are not looking far and high enough. Keep me safe till day breaks And the shadows flee away. "A man's heart is the tablet of God, Who writes upon it what He is willing." "God give us sympathy and common sense, help us act with courage high 1 God give us calm and confidence and please, a twinkle in the eye."
