Meditation Another birthday, another milestone passed. Seventy three years of my life gone. I can not change a single act or word of that past. Many of my boyhood hopes and ambitions. have been ship-wrecked on the rocks of disappointment and reverses. But why chase .>the ghosts of ,the departed past through the graveyard of dreams? Why meditate? There is still time to do things and make up at least in part for the failures of the past. My experience in life is the same as that of the average man. We find after chasing that fickle old girl "Dame Luck"that the pot of gold is still at the end of the rainbow. As we grow older we come to realize that .after" all from a temporal standpoint there is only one thing that counts, contentment. If we are happy and contented and have the respect of a good wife, children, % and gran'children, nothing else matters. I have a sister, poor as far as money is concerned, but she has a family of four boys and one -girl that is riches enough to fill to overflowing her cup of earthly happiness. Not one of her children have made a mis-step. They have the respect of .the community. jJPfrey are useful citizens, taking their places. in the activities of this old world, helping to make it better. One in the ministry, the others in the professions and trades. Can you imagine how happy those parents are? Money does not mean much to this mother. Contentment, love, respect, the sunshine'of a happy home is her life. When she is called above, how easy it will be for her to go, knowing that she is leaving a family grounded in honesty and good citizenship. Life is beautiful, and for all we know death may ,be just as sweet if we. come to it in the right way. Life is a conundrum, for some it is a hard nut to crack. If you want people to like you you must like the people. The world will give you back with interest what you give the world. Loving somebody and being lovejd is about all there is to it. Where love exists there is happiness. God above us is a God of love. Jitniiii€ THE SHOE MAN YOUR FEBEITD AT JtKAL TIME FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18 AND 1», 1938.
