Valley News and Views Page 7 October, 10, 2013 As we continue to examine hindrances religions and religious people sometimes place between men and their search for the true God, I want to take you to something Jesus told the Samaritan woman as He and she visited one day beside Jacob&apos;s Well. He said, "Ye worship ye know not what". II Kings 17 shows us that the Samaritans initially mixed the worship of the true God with their worship of idols -"They feared the Lord, and served their own gods..." (v:33). This is not unlike those today who, on the one hand pray and call on God, while at the same time they read "Whimsical Wednesday" presentations for Octoberare: Oct. 2nd-Charity Stegman, Pembina County Social Services, Fuel Assistance; TUESDAY OCT. 8TH-REVEL SAPA, OPTIONS- MEDICARE PARTDOPENENROLLMENT, Oct. 16thAndrea Lang, Senior Companion Program; Oct. 23rd-Dr. Catherine Hengel, Drayton Chiropractic Clinic- Arthritis and Chiropractic Services; Oct. 30th-Rosemary Glenn-her trip to Italy. They all sound interesting- join us! their astrological charts to see what the stars say about their future, or look to some Eastern religion or perhaps New Age thought. We cannot mix any other religions with the Holy Scriptures and hope to find our way to Jesus. Shortly before Joshua, the man who followed Moses as Israel's leader, died he called "for all Israel" to come to him. He intended to speak to them one more time and to give them a final hdmonition. In 23:6 he urged all Israel to "turn not aside therefrom (the Law) to the right hand or to the left". He also warned them against following other gods I would like to thank everyone who has donated fresh vegetables and fruits this fall. We have received lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, green and yellow beans, cabbage, tomatoes, zucchini, corn, green and red peppers, beets, cantaloupe, apples, rhubarb and onions. It has all been used in our senior meal program and tasted delicious. Thank you to Mary Hanson, Virginia Pokrzywinski, Allard Soderfelt, Gary Johnson, Dan Rudnick, Rose Altendorf, Janelle Nygard, Darlene -"neither make mention of the name of their gods... neither serve them, nor bow down to them: But cleave unto the Lord your God..." (vs 7-8). Joshua concluded with this final challenge: "choose you this day whom ye will serve... as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." Their is only one true and living God. He is the God of the Bible. Let no one hinder you by suggesting your search for God can lead you through Jesus and a mixture of other religious thought. By pastor leroy aufenkamp Tocchio, Marlys Nelson, Pam Christenson, Margaret Staskivige, Bob Lasch and Dorine Walberg. If I have missed anyone, thank you also. We try to write down donations as people bring them in, so I hope we mentioned everyone. Several times the fruit or vegetable have come in just before they were on the menu, so we were able to have fresh produce instead of frozen. Other items are added to the meal as extras. Everything is enjoyed by all!

When I picked up the tiny black and white baby, I looked up and whispered Bing, Bing, blowing my beloved father a farewell kiss. Every moment I hold our Bing in my arms and he looks up at me with those big gold eyes, I feel nothing but pure, divine love. I tell him often, "Binger, you are the sweetest, kindest being I have ever met in my life. You save me." Last Tuesday my brother- in-law Jeffrey landed in the hospital. He was in bad shape and a great deal of pain. After doctors performed two surgeries and his body started working again, he was thankfully discharged Monday afternoon. It was a stressful few days as Mike underwent another chemo treatment while Jeff, filled with pain medicine, rested in a hospital bed. Worry and uncertainty plagued me during those days. I would come home from the hospital feeling drained and unsteady. When I pulled into our driveway our outdoor, stray cat Babes would always come to the door of my vehicle to greet me and as I walked inside, I would be surrounded by pure, unconditional love. At one point when the pressure of worry needed to be released and I sat down in my living room chair to cry, little Bing wobbled over and rubbed against my leg as if he knew something I didn't; right then I needed so desperately a touch of grace to calm the ramblings of fear. We don't really know how long we will get to have sweet Bing in our lives but one thing we do know, he teaches us how we should live - loving always, accepting others no matter what their mood or appearance may be, enjoying each and every moment with vivacious enthusiasm, not taking for granted the simple things like a walk in the grass, the warmth of the sun, a leaf fluttering across the ground, and the warm embrace of a loving friend. And when we fall as we all will at crucial times in our lives, the only thing we can do is get back up and try again. Continued From Page 4 Sometimes along the way wisdom is found in the least likely places. If we open our hearts, grace can be held, lessons can be learned, and love can be felt. There are so many people on this earth who thinkanimals are inferior to us. I for one believe God put them here to teach us some of the most important lessons we can learn. They are not consumed by ego's tendencies toward greed, envy, hostility or cruelty. The only desire they possess is simply to love and be loved. In the Book of Bing, where my husband and I see the angelic clarity of the purist of souls, we comprehend life's most prominent questions of purpose, we are here for one reason - to be present in each solitary moment and love with every cell of our being. As Benjamin Hoff wrote in his book The Tao of Pooh, "Lots of people talk to animals...not very many listen, though...that's the problem." It certainly is amazing what a fragile handicapped cat and most animals can teach us. Who then is the wiser? I guess we know the answer. **Bing Bing The City of Drayton would like to thank the following for their memorial donations to the H.G. Johnson Hall (Community Center).
