Valley News and Views Page 7 November 7th 2013 Solomon wrote, "And whatsoevermineeyesdesired I kept not from heart rejoiced in all my labour. Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun" (Ecclesiastes 2:10-11J). Besides giving himself to every pleasure known to man Solomon "tried to find meaning by building huge homes for myself and by planting beautiful vineyards. I made gardens and parks .... I built reservoirs to collect the water to irrigate my flourishing groves." "I also owned great hers and flocks..." (2:4-7). Finally, after having accumulated "more than any of the kings who lived in Jerusalem before me", he concluded "it was all so meaningless" 9:11, NLT). It is possible that some who read this will very readily identify with Solomon's pursuit of pleasure, wealth, the accumulation of lands and goods, as well as his sad and sorry conclusion that it's all emptiness. Along the lines of Solomon you determined, "IfI can only make enough money to buy a nice house and purchase my own business or farm, I will be happy". You fulfilled that dream but remained empty inside. You reasoned, "If I can earn enough to buy a house by the lake and put a new boat in the water to enjoy every weekend then I'll be happy", but your empty heart remained. A winter home down south was not the answer either. Alcohol leaves you empty, as does money in the bank and every technological toy available to those who can afford them. All of this, and you're still empty. Why? The answer is simple. Your heart is not looking for things. It's looking for a relationship with its Creator, Jesus Christ.

One of my favorite people to watch on television is a man who goes by the nickname "Turtle Man." He is quite the character and spends his time helping both people and animals when he is called to rid a property of various types of critters who are reeking havoc. Usually Turtle Man catches the creatures with his bare hands before taking them to the nearest refuge where they can live safely and out of harms way. He is paid a variety of items on his adventures - sometimes he gets a cherished picture from one of the children or baked goods from a mother. I have also watched him get a rocking chair, tickets to a museum, an antique barrel, and a large variety of other very unique items as his payment. Turtle Man lives very humbly but seems like he is always happy. Every time he catches an animal he looks at the television screen, crosses his hands in front of him, and yells, "Live Action." It makes Prairie Fare Continued From Page 10 1/4 tsp. black pepper 3/4 tsp. dried rubbed sage or to taste) 16 ounces light cream cheese In a large saucepan, saut6 onions in butter until tender. Add squash, chicken broth, cayenne and blackpepper, and sage. Bring to a boil and cook 20 minutes or until squash is tender. Puree the squash mixture and cream cheese in a blender or food processor in batches until smooth. Return to saucepan and heat through. Do not allow to boil. If it needs thinning, add additional chicken broth until desired consistency is reached. The recipe was analyzed with reduced-sodium chicken broth. Makes eight servings.

So I was thinking about Turtle Man the other day and how every day, he finds his next adventure, does it well, and enjoys it. The rest of us may not be interested in catching and saving every creature that stammers into a bad spot but we can look at every day as a new adventure, do it well, and enjoy each present moment of it. Sometimes along the way, the twists and turns help us focus our attention where it is meant to go and we are able to learn from the moments that threaten to overwhelm us. There is energy within our movements, decisions, and thoughts. As John Lennon once said, "Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans." Life is definitely full of surprises and serendipity but if we can look at each day as a new adventure and genuinely accept there is ! something much greater than we can imagine in control, perhaps our lives will feel unbelievably blessed, our days will be more vivid, our hearts will be filled with faith not fear, and we will comprehend life is simply saturated with a whole lot of 'Live Action.' www.nd 1.800.QUIT.NOW 1 NORTH DAKOTA nEpm,Nr .!
