Mahaska County Board of Supervisors member Mark Doland has announced his resignation following allegations he does not currently meet eligibility requirements.  At the Mahaska County Board of Supervisors meeting on May 2, Doland was confronted during a time for public comment with allegations that he was no longer eligible to remain on the board due to a change of address. Doland said he was staying with a friend in town.  Doland said Wednesday he did not lie on court documents, nor, at that time, would he resign. Monday morning, Doland released an email announcing his resignation from the board, and that more information would be released at a future time.

Pella resident Martha Slings has attended 82 of the 83 Tulip Time festivals. She sits in the same spot every year so her family and friends can find her: in front of the police station on the corner of Main and Liberty Streets.  This year, Slings attended the festival with her son. She turned 100 years old on March 7.  She used to wear a Dutch costume, but hasn’t for a couple of years. Her costume has been passed down to her granddaughter who wore it this year. The only Tulip Time festival Slings missed was shortly after WWII due to a death in the family that sent her out of state.

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.”
