Valley News and Views ................ ........ _Obituary Gordon H. Maurstad, 82 Gordon H. Glee Club, as well as their Maurst ad, youngest president, and Page 7 April 17th, 2014 FranksviUe, WI; son, Eric Maurstad of Highland Park, IL; three grandchildren: Evan, Kara, and Zari; two sisters: Donna Mundy of Hobart, IN and Harriet (Larry) Scharmer Two events occurred in the year 1492 that had direct impact on the Jewish people. It was in August of that year that some 200,000 Jews were expelled from Spain. Shortly after their expulsion Christopher Columbus headed west and discovered America. For centuries the New World has served as a safe haven for millions of Jews. One year later (1493- 1494) the frst of four "Blood Moons" took place, each on a Jewish feast day (total lunar eclipse, moon takes on a blood-red appearance). Not until the years 1949- 1950 was there another similar astronomical event. These lunar eclip ses occurred one year after Israel became a State. Then again in 1967- 1968 there was another series of Blood Moons falling on the Jewish feasts of Passover and Tabernacles. Interestingly, 1967 was the year several Arab nations determined to drive Israel into the sea. John Hagee, in his book "Four Blood Moons" said that with approximately 465,000 troops, more that 2800 tanks, and 800 aircraft the nations attacked. Six days later the war ended. Israel not only survived, but when the dust settled and the smoke cleared Israel had taken considerable territory, including Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. Hagee also points out that between April 15, 2014 and September 28, 2015 there will be yet another series of Blood Moons. In Genesis 1:14 "God said, Let there be lights in the firmament...and let them be for signs...." And in Joel 2 this prophet foretold, and Peter in Acts 2 quoted him saying, 'The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come." Are these current Blood Moons signs related to the great day of the Lord? Do they signify some great event in Israel? Past history suggests that we should watch closely.

For fear of him, the guards trembled and became as dead men. And the angel said to the women, "Be not afraid I know that you seek Jesus of Nazareth who was crucified. He is risen. He is not here. Why seek the living among the dead? Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, saying, 'The Son of Man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful man and be crucified and on the third day rise again.' Come now and see that place where He lay. (Then they remembered His words.)" "Go quickly and tell His disciples and Peter that He is risen from the dead, and lo, He goes before you into Galilee. There, you will see Him as He told you." Some went away with fear and trembling and said nothing because they were afraid. Others went away quickly with fear and great joy and ran to tell the disciples. Along the Way Continued From Page 2 moment we are given. Following the service our family gathered at my brother and sister-in-law's home to honor Aurora. I am happiest surrounded by family and so the day was filled with the joy of family togetherness as we celebrated the blessing of Aurora Jo in our lives and the grace of God's constant love and acceptance. As the minutes turn into hours, the hours into days and the days into years there is so much in our lives to be grateful for. Although the world can often seem overwhelming it is nice to feel the bonds of family, friendship, and the love that is the river of life. Sometimes along the way we are awakened to the awe inspiring footprints we can leave in the sands of time. I have no doubt our little Aurora will create quite the legacy of her own just as Steve and Ellen Marciniak have. Outside our living room window I can see the rising waters of the Red River which has already crossed over our gravel road near the wetlands. I think of its expanding mass and how it envelopes the prairie land surrounding our house. Just as the river reaches beyond its banks in spring when we fill ourselves with love, the river of life can travel far beyond our years and expand deep into the world.
