An Iowa couple is having a sweet celebration for their 50th wedding anniversary – Bob and Kate Shaw of Spirit Lake decided to make their 50th extra-special by driving around Iowa handing out free ice cream.  On Monday, September 11th the couple made stops at the Mahaska Health Partnership, Mahaska Communication Group, and Oskaloosa Pizza Ranch, where they distributed free treats from an ice cream storage unit on the back of a 1967 Ford pickup.  

Habitat for Humanity is known for building new homes, but in Pella the organization is trying something different – moving an existing home to a new location.   Joel Verhoef, community development and volunteer coordinator for Habitat, says the non-profit was gifted a two bedroom, one bath bungalow built in 1926.  Originally located at 905 Union St, the home will move to property owned by Habitat at 412 E 1st St.  Construction on the foundation on the new lot will begin in the next few weeks, Verhoef said. Habitat is looking to move the home before the middle of November, and is in the process of accepting bids for the project.

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.”
