Young people in Mahaska County got a taste of the outdoor life at the 14th annual Youth Outdoor Field Day.  Nearly 300 people attended the event at the Russell Wildlife area; of those Mahaska County Conservation Naturalist Laura DeCook said 170 were local area youth.  For the second year in a row participants were able to experience different activities by moving from one station to the next and staying as long as they liked.  Some favorites for the day were a boat ride for bow fishing, retriever dogs, and  clay pigeon shooting.  

Another Oskaloosa event had folks going to the dogs as they raised funds for the Stephen Memorial Animal Shelter – the 6th annual Stephen Memorial K-9 5K took place this past Saturday at Lake Keomah, where approximately 40 runners participated in the Shelter’s largest fundraising event of the year.  Shelter employee Connie Rodgers remarked that after a period of turmoil in leadership at the shelter, it feels like they’ve turned a corner, with operations steadily improving day by day.  

The former Caseys store at the corner of Main and Washington Street has been sold – during a recent auction of the property Bank Iowa purchased the location for $210,000.  CEO of Bank Iowa Jim Plagge says they’re expanding banking services to Pella; the bank intends to demolish the current structure, and is currently coming up with design documents to submit to the city of Pella for a new building.  There is no timeline for completion, but Plagge says they intend to start working as soon as possible, with potential construction possible in early 2018.

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.
