Mahaska Health Partnership Keokuk County Hospice Nurse Lisa Uphold has been named to the 2018 listing of “100 Great Iowa Nurses.”  Since she joined MHP in 2013, Uphold has proven to be an outstanding example for fellow nurses.  In the winter of 2017, Uphold was assigned to care for a patient who had a unique situation and had no electricity at home. Johnson applauded Uphold’s willingness to go above any beyond for the patient; she says she loves what she does and feels honored to be recognized.

The official mascot of the 2018 Drake Relays lives in Pella.  The winner of the Drake Relays Beautiful Bulldog contest is Bow-Z. The two-year-old was adopted by John Hill of Pella last summer.

Paige Dickel will never forget her first tour of the Vermeer Windmill where her boyfriend, now fiancé, proposed to her at the top of the structure.   On Saturday, Jeremy Shannon planned a fake tour of the Vermeer Windmill for Dickel. When Dickel got to the end of the tour, Shannon proposed – she said yes!  The Pella Historical Society and Museums staff met the couple – both Central College students –  to take them on a tour. Shannon said he needed to use the restroom and said he’d catch up with the tour later. Instead, he went to the top of the windmill and waited for Dickel.  Along the way, Dickel read two letters Shannon had written, leading her to the real reason for the tour.

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.
