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.

The Greatest Attitude
15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. Psalm 31:15
David now proclaims to God that his life is in His hands. This kind of attitude will keep us walking steady without responding negatively to all the evil in the world. This perspective will also keep our heart bent towards God no matter what the cost. David remembers God is in control of not only his life but the very cosmos he is living in.

Many of us struggle through life because of our attitude towards our troubling situations as we grant the circumstances of life permission to guide our attitude. For most, if all threats are gone in life our attitude can remain positive and fortunate. However, the minute we experience an unfortunate occurrence, our attitude can plummet. We have to make daily choices of how we will remain by saying “my times are in your hands.”

It is a matter of choice of how we will or will not be provoked by our troubles. David’s attitude rose above his life-threatening circumstance to realize God is in control. I wonder if he knew deep in his heart, that if the current situation took his life, the battle would be over. God will carry us through all battles of life but only if we allow His involvement. If we choose to dwell on the negative, is there any room for God’s participation in our life? What would happen if we agreed with David and said, “My times are in your hands.”
