 The South Central Regional Airport Agency held their quarterly meeting last week, and Mahaska County representative Joe Warrick rejoined the board, a move set in motion by Mahaska County Supervisors Chair Henry ‘Willie’ Van Weelden.  When asked why the Mahaska County representative was rejoining the board, Van Weelden said a recent court ruling was very clear that he probably shouldn’t have even been taken off of that board to begin with.  Van Weelden stated that Warrick was removed by then Mahaska County Board Chairman Mark Doland, a move that the SCRAA board never voted on.

The Pella School District will offer bus service for pre-school in the coming school year.  The board approved a $130 annual fee for families using the pre-school bus service.  Superintendent Greg Ebeling says one of the biggest barriers for parents of young students was the half-day schedule the preschool program offers, as transporting a child from school to daycare was difficult for parents who work out of town or couldn’t make their schedules match in the middle of the day. Additionally, preschool students are now allowed to use the bus to get to and from home or daycare in the morning and afternoon.

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.”
