The Press-Dispatch Wednesday, October 13, 2021 D-3 are the solution. When the par- ty is over they hurt more than ever and sometimes scar their young lives with bitter memo- ries that never go away. The wonderful truth is God wants you happy. He has a won- derful plan for each life and the sad present does not deter- mine our future. When we ac- cept Christ there is peace and the Holy Spirit comes to guide us and enables us to find God's plan. The Bible is like a road map that tells us how to love and offers comfort and direc- tion. Always remember God wants you to be happy and dis- cover His plan and purpose for your life. VIEWPOINT Continued from page 1 Pentecostal Pentecostal Presbyterian Wesleyan MINUTES Continued from page 1 where. And the airplane. This is really something. We can now fly through the air with so much noise and commotion that innocent people for miles around our larger airports are kept awake nights. Of course, the minority should be willing to suffer cheerfully for the ma- jority and it is important that great numbers of people get places fast, fast, fast. But all this is nothing com- pared with what is going on in outer space. We now have all sorts of things orbiting around out there — and it's not all de- bris. It includes some very sen- sitive instruments, serving us faithfully from day to day. In- deed, men from our earth have actually landed on the moon and have brought some of its rocks and dust back with them. Soon, maybe, we will have peo- ple from beautiful New En- gland, or the breath-taking Rockies, or the lovely shores of Oregon, living on its bar- ren wastes. Wonderful pros- pect. And we can always get the necessary billions from the taxpayers. But the best of it is that while we have aspired to reach the moon, and even Mars, we've got a Great Society going on earth; a Society whose wild pa- gan music has all but replaced the beautiful melodies and harmonies of the classics, and whose twisted "art" reflects the bewildered confusion of our times; a Society in which children and young people are corrupted, women are robbed and raped, and men, women and children are murdered in the streets. Oh, it's wonderful. The young people demonstrat- ing at our universities for the right to use filthy language if they want to, and demanding a greater voice in running our institutions of learning; the minority groups marching to protest their various grievanc- es, the rioting and bloodshed, the burning and looting. And meantime, ever so quietly, our most sophisticated mob syndi- cates are running fine motels and other business organiza- tions — and pouring an ever-in- creasing flow of narcotics, por- nographic literature, etc., into our enlightened community, judges and juries doing what they can to favor the criminals and, should any of them land behind prison bars, the parole boards are there to help get them released as soon as pos- sible, so that our happy society may benefit from their experi- ence and our mental and penal institutions may be further en- larged. Surely we've never had it so good. Thanks be to God for the truth of Gal. 1:4: "[Christ] gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world [or, "age"] according to the will of God and our Father." RAMBLINGS Continued from page 1 Methodist PAWS WEEK PAWS WEEK Pet of the HAPPI "The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty"— Mother Teresa. This week, PAWS is fea- turing a peppy young pup named Happi, who is a peo- ple pleaser, and loves be- ing around children and other dogs. She is very mild mannered and calm for a five-month-old. She has been a little unsettled recently since all her sib- lings have been adopted. Shelter volunteers keep reassuring Happi that her forever family will soon find her. Happi is a Terrier mix with short, soft black fur and white accents. She will be a medium-sized dog. To adopt Happi, call 812-354-9894. PAWS has lots of great dogs, cats and kittens wait- ing for their forever home. We are also is need of do- nations of paper towels, Purina puppy chow, Puri- na One dog food and Pu- rina cat chow and kitten chow. If anyone could help out with these needs, they can be dropped off at the shelter. cause each week we try to clean our floors and each week we end up with a bunch of dirt and sand in our mop water. But the house smells great when we are done. We got a call from our eldest son because his car wouldn't start and he was in Evansville. Not knowing a thing about a Prius, I asked my friend to go along with me, so there would be two heads trying to figure it out. Neither one of us could even figure where the battery was, so there was no way to jump his battery nor change it. For an unknown reason, the car started and my son headed for the Toyota dealer to have a battery put in. The bill was high, but after trying to find the battery, let alone change it, we deemed it okay to pay the price. His mother and I were in Evansville the next day for a doctor appointment, so we brought his car home for him. I mowed the yard Satur- day morning and it was high enough I believe I needed a baler to mow it. It took awhile to get it mowed, but it didn't clump as bad a I thought it might. I needed to weed eat, but it will have to wait because I had other things more press- ing to get done. The campers at Prides Creek RV Park hosted a Hal- loween trick or treat for the kids. There were many chil- dren dressed in their cos- tumes. It was a treat to see all of them. The campers had ma- ny treats for the kiddos and there were lots of thank you, as well as trick or treats go- ing on. The kids were courte- ous and good to be around, so someone has taken some time with these kiddos. I only have one remark to make concerning our govern- ment and that is, why do they always threaten the Social Se- curity recipients with the pos- sibility of no checks? While we are on this subject, why it is always called an entitlement? I'm 73 years old and paid into this system for about 60 years, give or take a few years. It was set up as a means to support our citizens who become old enough that they have trouble working or they are disabled to the point they can't work. Sometimes I and many others wonder what is next. Social Se- curity should be left alone and never threatened by our gov- ernment. If you are a Christian, you shall end up with a retirement which is definitely out of this world. So hang in there and en- dure unto the end or until your end because it will be worth it all. So be the blessing you are asked to be and be blessed.

We get excited by watch- ing different games live or on television. Let us get an excite- ment about touching lost souls and bringing them to the bleeding side of calvary. This old world is about to come to the final climax and there is a quick work to be done and then we can have the greatest celebration of our lifetime of those that have been set free by acceptance of Jesus Christ into their lives, Remember to pray for the sick, those in hospitals, in nursing homes and any that are downtrodden by life. May we be about the Mas- ter's business. Lift up in prayer your pres- ident, U.S. Congress, your state and local government of- ficials, as the Bible states that we might live a peaceful life.
