Prairie Schooner Tours – Neal Smith NWLR

Seed Collection Day, on October 14, during National Refuge Week, is a special day for the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge to collect the fruits and seeds of dozens of plants.  It is also a day to reflect upon what has been accomplished and what projects remain to be started.  In light of this, the Friends of NSNWR have obtained bus services, the Prairie Schooners, for narrated tours through the Refuge.  It will be a time for sharing experiences on the prairie, observing the changes, and developing thoughts about what can happen in the future.  There may be one or more stops, depending upon the weather, for short walks. 

The hour long tours will depart from the Prairie Learning Center at the Refuge at approximately 12:30 p.m. and again at 2:00 p.m.  Bring cameras and binoculars. Space is limited for each tour.  Pre-registration is required by noon on Friday, October 13. To reserve your space on board, please call the Refuge at 515/994-3400 or email Doreen_vanryswyk@fws.gov.

You who fear the LORD, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you descendants of Israel! Psalm 22:23

There are many things in this world we can admire. There are many famous people we may stargaze over because of all the abilities they have been given. We may soon be finding ourselves praising them and honoring them to the place they get all of our attention. We see them behind the TV screen which grasps a lot of our daily attention. We would instead praise the celebrity or athlete behind the screen than the One who is truly worthy.

This isn’t to make us feel guilty, but it is written to change us. David called out and said for those who fear the Lord, Praise Him. If we admire God, then praise should be a daily heartfelt response. Maybe our hearts have been overtaken by false idols, and there isn’t enough room for fearing God. Could it be, we have allowed to much space to worship idols instead of the One True God?

David called out to the descendants with an an exclamation point behind his statements. He knew there would be other idols trying to compete with the fear of the Lord. We too are descendants of Jacob and like our ancestors, it’s time to honor, revere and praise His name. It could be time to get rid of what’s taking the place of our daily praise! Making praise a regular exercise will conquer the invasion of the idol.
