Valley News and Views Page 7 February llth, 2010 The Pastor's Column The prophet Jeremiah asks an interesting question in Lamentations 3:39 "Why should any living man complain when punished for his sins?" (NIV). Barnes in his commentary observes: "So long as God spares a man's life why does he murmur? Another, "Jamieson, Fauset, and Brown" adds this about the word "living": "living, and so having a time~ yet given him by God for repentance." The importance of that statement takes on greater significance in light of this truth: "If sins were punished as it deserves, life itself would be forfeited by the sinner" (Jm., Fst., Brn.). Remember God's warning to Adam - "... in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die", and Paul's words - "For the wages of sin is death" (Genesis 2:17, Romans 6:23). I quote again from the latter commentary: "Instead of blaming God for our sufferings, he ought to recognize in them God's righteousness, and the just rewards of his own sins." I deserve death, but thank God mercy has been extended and I will have opportunity to repent. Lamentations 3:40 and 41 provides two measures we should take rather than murmuring. First, "Let us Citizen Pembina County Meals Pembina County Meals & Transportation is going to have a Valentine's Day fundraiser.

The Pembina County Emergency Food Pantry provides food on an EMERGENCY basis for those out of work, have unexpected health issues or are victims of domestic violence, etc. The search and try our ways, and turn again to the Lord". We can only do this effectively if we ask the Holy Spirit to be involved. "Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts, and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting" (Psalm 139:23, 24). Second, "Let us lift up our hearts with our hands". The lifting up of our hands (a show of submission and reverence) must first come from a heart lifted up to God. Raised hands without the heart is hypocrisy and show. By pastor leroy aufenkamp food pantry also supplies food to those people struggling with an economic crisis due to flooding, tornadoes, or fire.

Flood Outlook Continued from Page 1 also seen above normal precipitation over the past 4 months, where 3 to 4 inches of precipitation have occurred. This represents totals between 150 and 200 percent of normal. Frost depths are generally down to 18 to 24 inches, just slightly less than at the same time last year. What has been most unusual about this winter is the relatively stormy pattern, despite the presence of a moderate E1 Nifio in the Pacific. When looking at past years with similar weather and climate conditions, the spring months of March, April and may have been seasonally milder and wetter than normal. The majority of the anomalous precipitation has historically fallen across the southern Red River Valley. Based on the recent behavior of the atmosphere and the expected overall climate conditions, the late winter into early spring 2010 is projected to remain milder than normal in terms of temperature, with continued above normal precipitation. Historical analysis and recent climate trends suggest that the southern Red River Valley will be more likely to experience above normal precipitation for the remainder of the period. Therefore, the conditions are developing for significant spring flooding. The upcoming spring thaw cycle, as well as what precipitation falls before and during the melt, will be critical factors in the actual flood levels." In related news, President Haggis M. Lee, president of the Animal's Republic have put the citizens on a flood watch. He is encouraging them to be prepared to evacuate the Republic and head for higher ground, as was the case last year. As an added precaution, the use of nutmeg has been banned in the Republic and Vinny Mouse has been strictly told there will be no rising Of Atlantis shennanigans, this year.
