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.

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.
