It’s safe to swim at North Overlook Beach again, according to a recent news release from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.   Bacterial counts at North Overlook are within normal parameters and the signs at the beach are no longer posted, the news release said.  The Corps of Engineers had recommended that people not swim at North Overlook due to elevated bacterial counts in a news release on July 5. The main body of water had low bacterial counts.

After months of debate and research, Pella’s city council passed an ordinance on July 3rd allowing microbreweries to operate in  commercial and commercial mixed-use districts in the Tulip City.  A microbrewery is defined as a business that has a primary function of brewing beer, ale and “similar beverages” on-site, and a secondary function of producing food and other beverages. Microbreweries in Pella will not be able to produce more than 10,000 barrels of beer or ale annually and the business will not be able to obtain a class C liquor license, which allows businesses to sell hard liquor.  New microbreweries will not be able to operate within the central business district; they’ll also need to obtain a special use permit. A separate ordinance allowing people under the age of 21 to enter a microbrewery with an older adult was tabled as the council felt it needed more information to proceed.

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.”
