Hundreds of classic cars will line the streets of downtown Pella Saturday – The 39th annual Resurrected Tin Bologna Nationals will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  with food vendors and other activities taking place throughout the day. There are two special parties today and Saturday night for participants of the show, including meals, games, prizes, and a band at Lake Red Rock.

2017 was a pretty good year for pheasant hunters in Iowa, but how do things look for 2018?  According to state officials the outlook is a mixed bag, depending on where you live.  An estimated 55,000 hunters harvested more than 221,000 roosters in Iowa last fall; a slight decline from 245,000 harvested in 2016.  Parts of southern Iowa are dry while northern Iowa has been inundated with rain. Combine that with a late arriving winter and you have a recipe for a stable to declining pheasant population.  Todd Bogenschutz, upland wildlife research biologist for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, has been using the same model since 2002 to forecast pheasant populations in Iowa and has been right 80% of the time.

The Greatest Attitude
15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. Psalm 31:15
David now proclaims to God that his life is in His hands. This kind of attitude will keep us walking steady without responding negatively to all the evil in the world. This perspective will also keep our heart bent towards God no matter what the cost. David remembers God is in control of not only his life but the very cosmos he is living in.

Many of us struggle through life because of our attitude towards our troubling situations as we grant the circumstances of life permission to guide our attitude. For most, if all threats are gone in life our attitude can remain positive and fortunate. However, the minute we experience an unfortunate occurrence, our attitude can plummet. We have to make daily choices of how we will remain by saying “my times are in your hands.”

It is a matter of choice of how we will or will not be provoked by our troubles. David’s attitude rose above his life-threatening circumstance to realize God is in control. I wonder if he knew deep in his heart, that if the current situation took his life, the battle would be over. God will carry us through all battles of life but only if we allow His involvement. If we choose to dwell on the negative, is there any room for God’s participation in our life? What would happen if we agreed with David and said, “My times are in your hands.”
