Valley News and Views Page 5 : ........ ......... January 28th, 2010 The Pastor's Column When the Vikings lost the NFC Championship game in overtime to the Saints this past Sunday, there was great disappointment in our home. The "Vikes" fought hard but turnovers proved to be their downfall. Those who have followed sports for any length of time know that every sport has the potential for great wins and devastating losses, and with it either "the thrill of victory [or] the agony of defeat" (as "NBC Sports" expressed it years ago). The same is not true in the game of life, which is really not a sport but a war. Even so I want to compare the battle between good and evil, God and the devil to sports. In sports the victor is not known or determined until the game is over, but in this battle we know that Satan has already lost, and is leading a losing effort. John 16:11 (NIV) tells us "the prince of this world has already been judged". His defeat has come at the hands of the Church's "captain" (Hebrews 2:10 -- "captain of their salvation"). As a coach sometimes grow angry, ranting and raving on the sidelines, and may be expelled from the game, the devil is about to be "cast out into the earth...having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time". As his end draws near Satan attacks God's people, but to no avail (Revelation 12:9-12), his defeat is assured. In the end Satan and hi team will be forever banished to the lake of fire; while God's people will celebrate around the Throne of God in the city built especially for those on the winning team. John 3:16 says "whosoever will" may be on Jesus' team and share the thrill of eternal victory with Him in Heaven.

Blizzard Continued From Page 1 As you followed the Red River south, snowfall amounts to the west of the river were progressively less as you moved southward, however once out of the valley to the east or to the extreme west, the average snowfall amounts increased by i or more inches with Langdon and Devils Lake areas averaging over 8 inches and the Roseau, Thief River areas over 6 inches. So, looking around the area you have to wonder what all this means in terms of our flood potential for this spring. At least it makes me wonder that. We're starting to get a lot of snow out there and no-one really wants a repeat of last year. Well, no numbers have been crunched yet to include our latest snowfall. The most current probability table became valid on January llth, and is currently valid through April 30th. Created by the National Weather Service, the calcnlations included the heavy snowfalls we had at the beginning of the month. A new table should become available later this week. The current table is pictured below. Remember this is just a guestimate, with many variables and not cast in stone.

As James Taylor so beautifully wrote, "I still love you and no ones going to take that time away." My hope is we all realize, through the victories and defeats, how much there is to be grateful for as we stagger through the years searching for purpose. May we see the sunshine after the storms and know there are only brighter days to come, sweeter moments to cherish, and so many positive influences to learn from. Outside my office window blue skies overlook the still frozen ground. Rays of sunshine sweep across the white garage door causing an eclipse of color and light and the expanding shadows of our two elm trees roll over the American flag which flutters against the wind's chill. I am feeling alive and well, inundated with the welcoming knowledge that it won't be long before another day as time passes and this old world keeps spinning around. of Thanks from the Brush Bunch! All of us at the Walhalla Brush Bunch and the Gorge Gallery would like to thank the Valley News and Views and the reading audience who have made it possible for us to share some our art work with you. Many comments have been made to our group about this project which began in November of 2006. Some newspapers have carried, as many as, 136 articles, including our Art Show reports, our outings, the Gorge Gallery reports and the days we paint on location. Our Art Shows have extended to a two day affair and a larger place to show because of your cooperation and generosity. This years theme is Dakota Country. God Bless and thanks! Walhalla Brush Bunch by Leo Beauchamp I would like to thank everyone for the cards, letters and phone calls wishing me a swift recovery following my exercise wheel accident. Thanks too for all the peanut butter. A special thanks to the Christmas Mouse, who kept me company and made sure I had a fresh bed pan. Ferdinand Manuel Oldie But Goodie, Einar and the Talking Frog Courtesy of Uncle Bill Old Einar Tollefson had just turned 86 and still loved to fish. He was sitting in his boat one day when he heard a voice say, "Pick me up.," He looked around and couldn't see any one. He thought maybe he was getting goofy when he heard the voice say a gain, "Pick me up.." He looked in the water and there, floating on the top, was a flog. The man said, ~re you talking to me?' The frog said, "Yes, I'm talking to you. Pick me up then, kiss me and I'll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen. I'll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous because I will be your bride!" The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front pocket. The frog said, "What, are you nuts? Didn't you hear what I said? I said kiss me and I will be your beautiful bride." Einar opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said, "Nah, at my age I'd rather have a talking frog." Moral: With age comes wisdom...
