Launching Arrows, a non-profit organization in Oskaloosa, will host a second prom for individuals with special needs in the surrounding communities. Called “A Night of Stars”, the event goes from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. on May 12 at the Vermeer Global Pavilion, located at 2110 Vermeer Rd E. in Pella.  Pella Middle School special education teacher Kelsie Sheets created Launching Arrows, an organization that keeps students who might have financial difficulties active within their community or school, a few years ago in Oskaloosa. Sheets got the idea for a prom from the Tim Tebow Foundation, which holds an annual prom for people with special needs.  Sheets was invited to volunteer at one of the Tim Tebow Foundation proms by her sister, where she says she fell in love with the program, and thought the event could be held locally.  The first local  “Night of Stars” special needs prom was held in May of 2017 and was a big success, thanks in part to great support from volunteers and the community.  This year’s prom has been moved up one hour; A light dinner will be provided for attendees, and anyone over the age of 12 can attend the prom, adults included.

What to do with a Troubled Heart
Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish. Psalm 25:17

There is no greater answer for our troubles than to have a conversation with our Lord. Not a one-sided conversation but truly enter a time of listening. Often, we want to share our anguish but how regularly do we want to hear feedback. This prayer takes more than sharing our troubles for it takes waiting in His presence and receiving instruction.

We all have a trusted friend we share the troubles of our heart with but what if we looked towards God as a trusted friend and confidant. He is ready to hear from us and will help us as our friend with the problems we carry.

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. John 15:15

He calls us his friends and His desire is to sit with us in our troubles and anguish. His friendship is motivated by love for us for His very essence is love for us. When He approaches our problems, he hears them through love, so I’m not sure why we wait to carry all our difficulties to our friend.
