Valley News & Views There are two things that really matter in life. These two items will influence every other aspect and decision in your life. The frst is to love Jesus. A lawyer came to Jesus testing Him with this question: "..which is the great commandment of the law?" Jesus responded by quoting Deuteronomy 6:5 - "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind" (Matthew 22:36- 37 NKJV). Jesus added the second great commandment -"You shall love your neighbor as yourself" (v:39). The world loves those who love them, but those who love Jesus must go further and love their enemies (Matthew 5:44). But only those who have experienced Jesus' love can love all men. Violence and hatred are spreading like dark clouds over America's landscape. The reason is simple. The U.S., through its laws, legislative decision, and public pronouncements has declared its hostility toward God and His Word. Not only has much of America let it be known that He is not wanted, welcomed, or loved, it has shown open contempt and disdain for Him. This hatred toward God filters downinto relationships between people and groups of people (ethnic, etc.). Murders, rapes, theft, and every other injustice are by- products of not loving God. These and other similar actions, according to Paul in Galatians 5:19-21, come out of a heart without God However, those who love Jesus will bill filled with the fruit of God's Spirit. The first of which is "love", and is called by Paul the greatest gift available to man (Galatians 5:22, I Corinthians 13:13). The second all-important thing in life is an outgrowth of the first, and that is to go to Heaven. A life that does not culminate on heaven's shore has been utterly wasted. pastor leroy aufenkamp It is time for our annual Valentine Cookie Fundraiser- "Send a Treat to your Sweet".

Page 7 February 14th, 2013 Along the Way the fire cooked lunch and said, "Man that is so good." I realized how every seemingly unimportant bite of living he gets to taste is a victory, a step forward in the collage of life's translucent memory, a source of solace between uncertainties, a home for his adventurous spirit, and a tribute to the courageous heart of a man who has lost so much but carries on despite the difficulties. That night as I fell asleep in the single bed next to my big brother's prepared to help him if need be in the middle of the night, I was awakened by a recording of his voice on his telephone. Facing the wall, pretending I was still asleep I listened. "I'm laying here in the hospital and just wanted to say a few things to you guys in case something happens to me..." I heard his booming voice say. One by one, he spoke to each family member, thanking us, telling us how much he loved us, and throwing in a few bits of advice along the way. Silently the tears caressed my cheeks, falling onto the pillow where my head lay. I waited for a while after I heard the recording finish before pretending to suddenly wake up and ask him if he needed anything. After moving his legs a little, giving him a drink of water, and telling him I loved him, I laid back down unable to help myself from wondering why he made that tape and why he was listening to it in the middle of the night. I don't know how it is possible, but in that moment, I loved my big brother more than ever and desperately wished I could switch places with him. I fell asleep with prayers of healing running through my head. As we packed up the next morning one by one each of the guys walked over to tell Mike how glad they were he could make the trip. As the last one walked away to prepare for another day of fishing I saw the tears in my News we con use?

This week Mike will start on a new chemo drug in hopes it will take care of the spot they found while we were in Rochester. I would like to believe our sacred fishing trip took care of the cancer all together but there is no way of knowing that so I ask for continued prayers for him. He has come too far, endured too much, for healing not to finallyhappen. I simply have to continue believing it will. Sometimes along the way we are given the chance to find a source of solace in the midst of nature's canvas and life's healing camaraderie. Like the two hawks who flew above us while we enjoyed shore lunch out on the ice, for a moment nature was our home and our companion, an inspirational place of healing. Sitting in the back seat on the way home listening to my brothers talk about our fishing trip, I caught a scent of the great outdoors lingering on my coat. Just then, I turned my head to look out the window and saw a large hawk landing on the top of a pine tree. I smiled knowing deep in my soul, this wouldn't be the last fishing trip my brothers and I would take together - it was the first of many more to come because I truly believe healing is just one jig away.
