  • With the gas prices jumping leaps and bounds upward, its the time

    to look around at the local region for entertainment, shopping, home

    improvements and vacations. The roller coaster bumpy ride to the gas

    pumps is causing nausea for all of us. But before you throw up, take a look at some of the

    best local happenings in your own backyard!

    One of those local happenings in your backyard is the event on March 10 women

    celebrating years of achievement the Womens Empowerment Network of Women will

    are all included for one price. See page 17 for details.

    and the recipients are honored at this event. The banquet will be April 19, 2012, so call now

    support to the YW and the women of the region!

    MarchHot Hunk Hunt!

    The February Hot Hunk was Bradley Cooperin the Trading Post ad on page 27. Surviving the Lions

    By: Robin Dugall

    ..Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear noevil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4 KJV

    There is a myth in much of Christianity that once you become a follower of Jesus

    you are protected from tough times. People interpret the abundant life that Jesus

    promises as if His role is to insulate us from the hard realities of life, but it just

    doesnt happen that way. For those who trust in Jesus, we echo what David wrote

    when he penned those famous words in the 23rd Psalm.

    Note that David, the author of Psalm 23, didnt write, IF I walk through the

    valley Rather, he exclaims even though. Hard times are inevitable and to

    be anticipated. It is part of what it means to live in a broken world.

    There was a young man who went through horrendously hard times in his life. His

    name was Daniel, and his story can be found in the book of the Old Testament that

    bears his name. One of the most well-known stories about Daniels life is when he

    took a courageous stand for God and ended up at the bottom of a lions den as a

    result. Even though King Darius respected Daniel, he had violated the kings law

    and was quickly sent to the lions den to suffer a certain death. Daniel was

    thrown to the lions, but he did not die. Instead, God delivered him. The king

    was so astounded by the way God protected Daniel that the king himself came to

    acknowledge Him as his own God.

    While we may never have to face being thrown to actual lions, hard times will

    come that threaten all we hold dear. We can trust in God or we can allow the

    challenges to overcome us. When you are experiencing hard times, make God your

    highest priority. Build the foundation of your life on Him.

    We dont have to face tough times alone. God has put people in your life to

    encourage and support you. As Peter said in his New Testament letter, ..Humbleyourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in duetime: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. (1 Peter 5:6-7KJV.)This means that humble yourselves under the mighty power of God and He willhonor and bless you."

    With your trust placed firmly in God and His power to deliver, you too can survive

    the lions you face.
