The Press-Dispatch Wednesday, Januar y 5, 2022 D-3 PAWS WEEK PAWS WEEK Pet of the DUFFY "We all have our good old days tucked away in- side our hearts and we re- turn to them in our day- dreams, like cats to favor- ite armchairs"— Brian Carter. This week, PAWS is fea- turing an approximate- ly six-month-old, spunky, young feline named Duffy, who has gorgeous mark- ings of silver and cream, with small flecks of apri- cot fur sprinkled on her back, head and ears. She likes being the only cat and sometimes moans when she sees another cat at PAWS. She is very playful with volunteers and likes to climb high on the cat trees, watching the activi- ties of the day. You can ad- opted her by calling 812- 354-9894.

Join the One WINNER is drawn at the end of each month and his family to constant- ly have to do without, while the better-off members of the congregation hardly notice. This is why the Apostle Paul reproved the Corinthi- ans and declares: "Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gos- pel should live of the gos- pel" (I Cor. 9:14). And this, too, is why he wrote to the large-hearted Philippians: "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did com- municate with my affliction ….Not that I desire a gift, but I desire fruit that may abound to your account" (Phil. 4:13-17). Where true, Bible-believ- ing pastors are concerned, let's not be Corinthians; let's be Philippians. With the fair weather we have been having we got all our Christmas decorations down and put up until next year when we will again take a couple of days to get them out again. I noticed many more decorated homes this year and it was probably due to extremely nice comfort- able weather conditions. I al- so know it is about time to put away the Christmas in the park decorations again. It comes apart easier than it does being put up. We always get into such a hurry to get do- ne that we often get them in the wrong place and it makes installing them a wee bit hard- er. I hurt for my wife because she is having some dental work done and it is becom- ing painful for her because the dentist had to cut her bridge into pieces to get her bad tooth pulled. There is yet a fairly good sixth piece of her bridge remaining on one of her teeth and it is ag- gravating her mouth. Hope all of her discomfort will be worth it for her whenever she gets her new bridgework. She hasn't been feeling real well since her first visit to get this work completed. Another friend and I drove to Tennyson to see an old friend from our earlier years. He is getting aches and pains just like we have, but he still looks like he should be feeling good. The weather again was good so we sat out on his back porch to visit. He has a stand- ing propane heater which kept us warm. He is retired like the rest of us and looks for things to fill up his days. We sat with both of our grandkids Thursday and we slept too long for my liking. The kids were sleeping well so I put up with it. I am a per- son who is methodic in the way I do things.Sleeping later got me out of my routine and you know old men and their routines. The kids did well most of the day but there are times whenever they are like oil and water because they don't always get along. As the day went on I think the timeout chair got used several times this day. Each time I let them out of time out I asked them to give each other a hug and a little love. I don't know if this was working or not but it helped us all have a better day. My wife laughed at me when I put five heads of cab- bage in our cart Friday. I told her I didn't want to run short of cabbage when we sat down to eat on New Year's Day. I've always heard you must eat plenty of cabbage to have plenty of money for the follow- ing year. I don't believe in this, but cooked cabbage is sure good to eat along with lots af fried potatoes. I filled in for our Sunday school teacher this past Sun- day and of course we had a les- son about resolutions and how the only one you are promis- ing something to is yourself and it does serve as a stimu- lus to making a commitment for your life and your promise. Bro. Rich spoke about reso- lutions as well and how some- times they are fun to make but we aren't to get so upset with ourselves if we fail to keep them. I think the best thing we can all do is ask for God's help to be a better servant and example for him. Keep doing your good deeds and keep on being a blessing in any way you can each and every day.

Steve Hamilton, Pastor HOUSE OF MERCY CHURCH Corner of East and Porter Winslow Pastor 812-789-5229 A Church with open arms and a loving heart. Sunday morning service 10 :15 a.m. and Sunday school at 11 a.m. You can view our morning service on Facebook live, around 11 a.m. The book of Joel talks about the biggest sign the tribula- tion is coming. Joel 2:30 talks in verse 30 about volcanoes. There has been a sudden eruption in Japan and Mexico and other places that does not make the news. And Matthew 24:8 states these signs are the beginning of sorrows. Verses 6 and 7 talks about things that are going to happen before tribulation. Tie Joel 2:30 with Matthew and you can see the coming of the Lord is close at hand. Are you truly ready or does the enemy have you de- ceived. Check you heart, is it right with God? 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. May your week be blessed and your journey's safe.

Staying fed "How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! " (Psalm 119:103, NRSV ). Recently I was confronted with this question: If you fed yourself with food the way you feed yourself with God's Word, would you still be alive? It gave me pause. Do I eat enough spiritual- ly? — feast regularly enough on Scripture to keep up my energy and the health of my soul? Do I eat nutritiously? — take in a balanced meal of law and gospel, comfort and com- mandments, prophecy and promise? Do I pass up spiri- tual junk food? — set aside empty calories that lead to disease, in order to hunger for what truly gives life? Do I drink enough Living Water to avoid faith dehydration? And once in a while, do I splurge on dessert? — savor the sweet- ness and joy of belonging at God's table? Office hours: 9 a.m.-noon, Monday-Friday. Amy Melhiser, Secretary OTWELL WESLEYAN CHURCH 2277 N. Mechanics Street Otwell Pastor 812.354.3028 Sunday school at 9:30 a.m.; morning worship at 10 :30 a.m.; 6:30 p.m. Sunday eve- ning worship service. The new year has arrived, and along with it we all have new goals. This past year has been an exciting one for us, while at the same time being trying and difficult at times. While we can't know what is coming in the new year, we can find hope in God's word, and maintain a positive out- look that things will be better than ever in this coming year. A few scriptures to remind us. "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you" (I Peter 5:7). "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight" (Proverbs 3:5 -6). "Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face al- ways. Remember the won- ders he has done, his mira- cles, and the judgments he pronounced,…" (I Chronicles 16:11-12). We invite all of you to come and worship with us. Roy Stilwell, Pastor Pam Lemond, Reporter
