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.

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.”
