High school girls from Albia, Centerville, Davis County, Eddyville-Blakesburg and Cardinal school districts will swim for Ottumwa High School during the 2018-2019 school year, the Ottumwa school board decided Monday night.  Two weeks ago Athletic Director Scott Maas brought the issue of sharing agreements before the board after rumors that OHS would no longer have a cooperative activity sharing agreement with other districts for the swim team raised the ire of some parents. At issue was a concern that students from other districts would prevent swimmers from Ottumwa from being on the team.  Despite some concerns the sharing agreement was approved unanimously; Ottumwa currently has eight students from other districts competing on its swim teams.

Do you have unused prescription medication sitting around the house that you’d like to dispose of safely?  If so mark you calendars – this Saturday multiple local law enforcement agencies will participate in a national program aimed to curb pill abuse and theft.  The Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Pella Police Department, Monroe Police Department, and Melcher-Dallas Police Department are all collecting expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration.

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.”
