Phil is a friend of mine from Cleveland. While he is now in Dallas, and so are Patti and me, Phil and I had a wonderfully harmonious and synchronous working relationship in Cleveland. He sent along this set of guidelines from a coach he had in high school:

For times you may need it;

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,

When the road you are trudging seems all up hill,

When your cares are weighing you down a bit,

Rest if you must, but don’t quit!

Phil, thanks a million for this item. It reminds me of a slogan I heard years ago, which says that the most powerful words in the English language contain no more than two letters:

If it is to be, it is up to me!

I realize that this may be good information and a fancy slogan, but it is also indicative that without the Lord, none of these two letter words will take place.

What do you think?
