A one-year old boy has died after an accidental drowning occurred at a farm pond near Leighton on Sunday afternoon.  According to a release issued yesterday morning, members of the Mahaska County Sheriff’s Office and Mahaska Health Partnership Ambulance were dispatched to 2292 Adams Avenue at approximately 3 p.m. for a call of a possible drowning victim.  Family members had started CPR prior to emergency crews arriving. Deputies and EMTs continued those efforts en route to the Mahaska Health Partnership Hospital, where the baby was declared deceased.  An autopsy has been scheduled with the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Ankeny.

Over 100 people enjoyed the beautiful weather Sunday as they gathered at Indian Hills Community College to help raise funds for the National Kidney Foundation.   Nine teams participated in what would be the sixth year for the Southeast Iowa Kidney Walk – this year participants raised over $8,500 at the time of the event, with the Community 1st Credit Union team gathering almost $2,500 of that amount.  Almost 96,000 Americans need a kidney transplant, but only about 17,000 patients a year will actually get one.

Making A Declaration
I will declare your name to my people; in the assembly I will praise you. Psalm 22:22

We make so many declarations that we may not even realize the number we make on a day to day basis. We may be guilty of pronouncing our name over our day. We may begin our day in a rush, may check our phone a couple of times, look at emails, Facebook, LinkedIn or the numerous other ways of being noticed. We may not even have a thought of what God has in mind for the day. We proclaimed this day as ours, and we will do our daily routine trying to find success in all we encounter.

But what if we started the day, proclaiming this is the Lord’s day? What if we set aside our phones for at least fifteen minutes and started seeking his approval over the day instead of social media endorsements. What if we shouted His name over the day instead of trying to make our name heard? This could mean we have to lay aside agendas and seek a faith assignment.

His name is worthy of declaration in our day to day living. The sooner we realize this, the more success will pour out. We can have a life where the real things matter instead of trying to build up something which will not make it into eternity. We don’t have to buy into the temporal success plan. Proclaim God over your day and find the adventure you have been looking for.
