The Hallmark store in Pella may be gone, but it’s former home won’t be empty for the big festival – An online boutique will take over the space at 635 Franklin Street during Tulip Time with a pop-up shop called The Pulse Boutique.  Co-owner Mallory McClaflin said she and her sister, Mackenzie Schooley, wanted to host the pop-up store to expand and meet new people during Tulip Time.  The Pulse Boutique was founded in 2012 by McClaflin and Schooley. Since then, the online shop has outgrown their parent’s basement and now ships over 5,000 orders a month to customers in the U.S. and Canada.  The pop-up boutique will be open from Wednesday afternoon through Saturday afternoon during the festival.

Road construction will soon begin on a major Marion County roadway.  Construction on Highway S45 from the intersection of Highway 5 and 92 to Melcher-Dallas, including a two mile stretch of G76, will begin the week of May 7th. During the 2-3 weeks of work the road will be limited to one lane so plan on delays.

According to Oskaloosa Fire Chief Mark Neff, Mahaska County is under a burn ban effective immediately. Due to high winds and dry conditions, no burning should be done until further notice.

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.
