A MOTHER’S LOVE

There are times when only a Mother’s love Can understand our tears, Can soothe our disappoints And calm all of our fears. There are times when only a Mother’s love Can share the joy we feel When something we’ve dreamed about Quite suddenly is real. There are times when only a Mother’s faith Can help us on life’s way And inspire in us the confidence We need from day to day. For a Mother’s heart and a Mother’s faith And a Mother’s steadfast love Were fashioned by the Angels And sent from God above.

“CLICK IT OR TICKET” ENFORCEMENT CAMPAIGN

Captain James E. Wilt, commanding officer of Troop B, Macon, announces that from May 21, 2012, through May 31, 2012, Troop B officers will be conducting a “Click It Or Ticket” enforcement operation in Adair County.  The enforcement operation is part of a national campaign focusing on seat belt violations in an effort to raise seat belt use and awareness.  Sometime following this operation, representatives of the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Division will conduct a seat belt survey in Adair County and other counties in the state.  During last year’s seat belt survey, the Missouri usage rate for all vehicles was 79%, which is below the national average of 85%.  In Adair County the usage rate was determined to be 71.3%. During this enforcement effort, the Missouri State Highway Patrol will continue its zero tolerance enforcement stance in an effort to raise seat belt awareness and compliance.  Mo

My Rockin’ Mom! By: Dani Evans dani.evans33@yahoo.com

I would like to take this Mother’s day to point out the gifts my mother gave me that helped shape me into the wife, mother, sister and daughter I am today. Never quit. Before all the sports marketing people got hold of this idea it was my mother’s. She used to tell me that nothing worth having was easy to get. I remembered that as I stood on those yellow footprints at Parris Island, waited four years to marry my awesome husband and walked through pregnancy number one all alone while my husband was in Iraq. Over and over again remembering Mom’s words, “Dani, nothing worth having is easy to get.” Adventures. My mother was the queen of inventing adventures. The Laundromat was so exciting because my mother made it that way. The adventure was everything from riding in the wheelie cart basket to getting to split a Watchamacallit with my brother using the left over change to buy it when the task was complete. We lived in the middle of no where, but that was exciting. We went on walks to our secret place. She would pack a picnic and we had to cross a HUGE (not really, actually tiny) creek using team work and bravery! Then we would sit among the wild flowers and eat our food. No one knew where we were and we never told anyone it was a secret! C Y

M K

Stories. My mother is the best story teller! It didn’t matter where we were she could look at things going on around us and make up the most fantastic stories. We would laugh and laugh as she expounded on the virtues of a broken down car on the side of the road or told us about a construction worker’s lunch break that day. Bad things happen. My mother was awesome at absorbing the bad things that happened. Life is filled with the joyful and the painful. Mom would tell me, “Dani, which are you going to focus on? Which are you going to remember? The good or the bad?” “Life is what you focus on, Dani.” She is so right. We can stare at everything wrong in the world and decide that it all sucks. Or we can focus on the beautiful! In life, so many times I have had mountains to climb but kept looking at the flowers growing along the path on the way up, so I just kept climbing. There are about a million other things I could tell you about my rockin’ Mom. I know that you probably have your own rockin’ Mom stories to tell. The most important thing this mother’s day is that you tell her. Mother’s day isn’t about flowers, chocolate or lunch at a big buffet (don’t get me wrong those things are cool too) but tell her why you want to dote on her. Tell her why you want her to feel so special this day that will be the best present you can give her!

Life and Times of Jean Emily Clark Ray, Part II I recall being hungry most of the time and remember sharing an egg with our Bobby, he got the yellow and I the white. We did have bread and marg with the egg and that was all until the next day at school where we were served school dinners. Oh how I looked forward to those dinners because it was the only real meal of the day. By the time George, Robert and I were in school the three older siblings were at work and because they worked they each had a dripping cake to eat with their tea (dinner). My sister May smoked and would give me part of her cake if I went down to the bus stop and picked up nub ends. When I arrived home she would shake out what little tobacco there was and roll it up in a paper and make cigarettes. We called them fags. When we went to bed, off came our clothing and was put to use as bed covers to keep us warm. We slept four in a bed and when one of us wet the bed, it was wet and cold. We then aired the sheets and used it again the next night. We never washed our bedding until spring. We did not own a washing machine and could not hang out the wash in the winter because it would never dry with our damp, wet and cold winters. Sunday night was bath night and we did have a real bathtub. First in was

Dora Leads Brylie Watkins Birthday Adventure

Brylie Watkins and “Dora� Brylie Watkins celebrated her 3rd birthday Saturday, May 5th at Bevier. She had a Dora The Explorer themed birthday party and Dora herself came to take the kids on an adventure. All the kids that had tickets to explore had to go through the Weathered Cave, make it through the Colored Trail and over the Yellow Fish Creek to get to their prize at the end. They had cake and ice cream and played with the birthday pres-

ents she received. Brylie had several family and friends to come and help celebrate. She is the daughter of Jordan and Tatum Watkins of Bevier, granddaughter of Terry Watkins and Barb Watkins of Cairo and Wade & Kathy Liebhart of Bevier and the great granddaughter of Jim & Kay Johnston of Clarence and Arley & Carol Liebhart of Macon. 

Dad and the water was clean and hot. Dad had a towel to himself and we were warned not to use his towel. Mom added a kettle of water as each kid or kids took turns getting bathed. Our Bobby and I bathed together and between the six of us we had one towel. By the time the last one got into the tub it was almost cold. After all the family was bathed, in went the clothes that we wore all week. The next morning the water in the bath tub was like grey sludge. Our dad was always checking the lad’s boots to see if they had been sliding and wearing out the leather. If he thought they had been, he threw the boots at them. That upset me a lot because I got by with everything and they were punished for any little thing that annoyed dad. We looked forward to getting the empty Kellogg Cornflakes box so we could cut it up and put it in our shoes that always seemed to have holes in them. It did not work too well when it rained. I remember my mom exchanging a packet of tea to a neighbor for a pair of used shoes that belonged to her daughter Barbara Thacker. Barbara’s dad was killed in the war, but somehow they all had plenty of everything. On Saturday evening the Yanks would come into town for pleasure and they would delight us

kids by throwing pennies in the air and we had to scramble for them. Bobby and I would always retrieve some. Just up Cooksey Lane at the edge of the country road was a prison that kept the German prisoners of war. I remember looking through the wire at the prisoners who were treated well by the British. By the time I was four years old, the war became more real to me. When the siren went off we would all run to the underground shelter where we would sit on planks of wood to stay out of the water where the rats were. We also had to wear ugly gasmasks to protect us and when I started school at four years old, we still had to carry our masks in a case. Every day the school held a war drill so that we would know what to do should the school get hit, luckily our family came out of the war unscathed, some of our neighbors were not so lucky. Our house was hit just a little by shrapnel which knocked some of the stucco loose, other than that we were very lucky. Soon the war was over and we had parties in the street and the women would dance and sing. Large tressle like tables were in the middle of the streets laden with food which had been horded for a rainy day. To be Continued‌‌‌.

COMMENTARY COMMENT

INTRODUCING TROOPER ADAMS AND JUSTO

You Just Have To Laugh It Off BY KATHY LIEBHART EDITOR kathy@maconhomepress.com

Whatever happened to customer service? When I started working, I was trained to give excellent customer service and to try and help answer all questions or find someone that can. It seems those days are long gone. This is a true story that happened last week. We talk about it and laugh it off because it is so unbelievable. My granddaughter’s birthday was last week. We decided to get her a 12 volt car. Macon didn’t have the one we wanted so we called Moberly to see if they had it in stock before driving there. We are lucky to live in a place where we can drive 30 miles north, south or west to the same super store. We called and were waiting on hold forever, and were disconnected. We called back, asked for assistance and were placed on hold again. Once again, we were disconnected. We called back the third time. The lady at the service desk placed us on hold again, came back a few minutes later and said she couldn’t get anyone to answer so she sent us to electronics. She explained that electronics was close to toys, and they could check for us. The lady answered in electronics but said she wasn’t in toys and couldn’t help. We were then placed back on hold for toys. Once again, we were disconnected. We just gave up and went to Moberly. We arrived at the store at 8:00 p.m. and went in, picked out the car we wanted and started to look for assistance to carry it up to the cashier. No help was to be found. My daughter and I started looking for someone to help and a few isles down she found a young man. She asked “Can you help us in the toys?” His reply was “Sorry, I’m not working yet.” We just glanced at each other and thought he would let someone know we were there, but I guess not. I found an older lady about four isles up pushing a cart so I went up to her and said “Excuse me can Yo……” I couldn’t even get it all out and she turned and looked right at me and went the other way. By 8:20, I began to get frustrated so I decided to call the service desk to tell them we were back in toys and to please send

LIEBHART someone. I called the number and no one answered the phone! I said to my daughter “You have got to be kidding me!” I couldn’t believe it! My daughter began calling the service desk, while I was on the phone calling the 800 number because I was so mad and was nearly in tears. My daughter did not getting an answer; however I did get a recording that said my wait was just two minutes, so I held on. My daughter had an idea; the stereos were right by the toys and playing low music. She turned up the stereo so someone would come back and turn it down. This was a great plan because it worked! An older man came back to turn the music down and my daughter hurried over to him as said “Sir I am the one that turned the stereo up. Can we please get some help in the toys?” I couldn’t believe my ears! His words were “I doubt it,” as he walked away. He was angry because she turned the volume up and wasn’t going to help. I finally began talking to someone on the 800 number and I filed a complaint. My daughter finally got a manager on the phone, and with the complaint, we got assistance in the Toys at 8:44 p.m. I just had to share this simply because it was so unbelievable. I believe for every person that isn’t giving 100% at their job, there are several waiting for the opportunity. Everyone lucky enough to be employed should be grateful, NOT HATEFUL! I just wish we had it on video; it would have been the greatest commercial- for other department stores! We just have to laugh it off because something good did come out of it. I am able to pass the story along and get other stories back of others experiences. Also, I will get to look at new scenery because you can bet I will NOT be traveling to the Moberly location from now on.

LAUGH OUT LOUD by Jim Lenzini A ventriloquist and his dummy were telling dumb blond jokes on stage, after about 10 jokes a blond lady had about all she could stand. She walked right up to the stage and told him she was getting

real sick of his jokes and that she had many college degrees so to stop. He said “I am so sorry, I promise I will never do it again. The lady glared at him and said…”You keep out of this; I’m talking to the little guy on your lap!”

FAITH

From the Desk of the Worship Center The Old Account Accountability is taking responsibility for our acts. Did you know our life is on record and will be opened at our judgment? Rev.20:12 I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were open, and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. It’s a very fair ledger. Nothing will be written except what I have done. People’s opinion of me will not be in this book; only my life will be viewed. I will stand before my creator who knows me better than anyone on earth. I will stand with the rich and famous, the presidents, kings and queens; and God will talk to me just as he does to them. I will be equal to the famous preachers and evangelists. My

book will be just as important to God as theirs. I will be given the same consideration as all of God’s creation. Then the Book of Life will be opened. This is the book of the heaven bound. Some might say they are scared because of their past, but if we are saved we have no past on record. Our sins were washed away by the blood of Jesus Christ, the magnificent blotter. 1John 1:7 The blood of Jesus His son cleanseth us from all sin. Isaiah 1:18 Come now, let us reason together, saith the Lord; though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. When our name goes into the Book of Life it goes in without a past. You can be separated from your sin and go into the Book of Life today. Pastor Ron Thomason

COMMUNITY NEWS by Doris Noah KIDNAPPED IN BROAD DAY LIGHT It was bound to happen. A couple of years ago a large lawn “ornament” appeared on the corner in the flower bed along highway 129. It was a cat named, Gaudy, riding a yellow bicycle that rode at a terrific pace when the wind blew. Gaudy cat had a little gray mouse in his bike basket and it was a cheerful sight to every passerby. (It was mentioned the cycling cat may disappear in the night. That never happened.) Well, folks, poor Gaudy was kidnaped in broad daylight last Monday. Just when we were rounding up money for a ransom payment if a note should be received Gaudy turned up in a flower bed on the corner of Walnut and W Santa Fe. Wonderful. The old cat has returned to his home. Now. The rest of the story. Whoever kidnaped Gaudy replaced him with a beautiful bright red, white and blue “Uncle Sam” riding on a equally colorful bicycle. When the wind blows Uncle Sam is a vivid addition to the corner. A happy ending to a clever prank. SWITZER CHAPEL CEMETERY A new white fence is being installed at the Switzer Chapel Church and Cemetery. Switzer Chapel is located northwest of Bucklin off of Highway U on what is named “Little Road”. Switzer Chapel was a Methodist Church where church services were discontinued many years ago. MILLER FAMILY NEWS Pearl Miller, Bucklin and Leroy Miller, Marceline attended the Northeast Missouri 6th Grade Honor Choir Concert April 16, 2012 at Moberly Area Community College. Their Great Granddaughter and Granddaughter Madelyn Fritts was one of the nine singers from Harrisburg Public School that were in the concert. The Northeast Area includes Linn County. Linn County R-1 School from the Purdin area had students in the concert. ON THE SICK LIST Jimmie Miller has been dealing with health problems the past couple of weeks. He is scheduled for surgery Friday May 4, in Kirksville. Charlotte Belzer is a patient at Pershing Memo-

rial in Brookfield as this is being written. WORK IN CITY PARK If you went up by the city park last Saturday you saw a lot of activity. Larry and Thelma Jones, Bob and Lori Davis and Leroy Hanson tackled the big backstop on the south side of the basketball court. The braces were broken and it was in pretty bad shape. It sure looks good now. The new posts and goals were purchased by the city last fall. These volunteers shaped up the rest of the area. What a terrific improvement. While the back stop labor progressed Rick and Patty Gilmore were busy up at the playground fixing the swings and the graveled area. Our park is a popular place for many young people especially this time of year. It is a blessing to have citizens with a will to help keep it nice. Adding to the busy Saturday the ladies of the Civic Club were gathering the trash along Highway 129 from north city limits to the south for their semi annual trash pick up. Bucklin is getting all spruced up for spring. COMPANY Ed and Jean Still made ice cream and baked a cake for company last week. Enjoying the afternoon were Bill and Roberta Stephenson, Earl, Joyce, Dennis and Ronnie Pollard, Jeri and Lesley Holt, June Sartain, Connie Floray, Nina Conrad and Linda Burns. Marj King has had several friends and relatives visiting recently. Guests were Cherry Miller, Cheryl Hamilton, Betty Shoemaker, Aleta and Philip Casady, Lou Etta Saltsider , Mike Olinger, Debbie Gillham, Pearl Olinger and Beverly Bandy. CITIZEN’S APPRECIATION DINNER The Civic Club ladies served their monthly appreciation dinner at noon April 26. Fifty two guests registered for the dinner of ham and beans, sloppy joes, a variety of homemade desserts and drinks. The door prizes were won by Darla Snyder and Rick Gilmore. The May dinner is scheduled for the 24th in the park with serving from 11:30 to 12:30. MAY CALENDAR Dates you may want to mark on your May calendar.

The yards with the sign week to week for the month of April were David Jenkins, Joe and Eva Gillespie, Mike and Kathy Kitchen, Ron and Allegra Eakins and Larry and Betty Mills. This is a task with so many well kept lawns and an abundance of flowers this spring from which to choose. Take a ride around town and see if you can find the sign. ODDS ‘N ENDS Hopefully we will have an article about the Anders baby shower. There was no way to get the details before press time this week. Marilyn Epperly had the first hummingbird we heard about this spring. Now ours is here and busy at the columbine and wigelia. We still only have one wren but it is a non stop singer. Information for you readers scattered from California to New York; the early garden produce is super this year here in our little spot of Linn County. Green onions, lettuce, radishes and the rhubarb have all thrived with timely rains. If you have any in your garden you have plenty and some to share with your non gardening friends..

Five committee members were present to discuss the upcoming spaghetti dinner fundraiser on May 19th, 2012, new stage fund/building plans and requests for volunteers to mow the Fiesta grounds. Old Business: The committee has received an updated bid for building of the new stage (without a roof), from PLS Builders, via Mike Cook. The new stage fund currently has around $7,000 and the committee is still taking donations so that they can reach the goal of $15,000 to $20,000. The new stage will reflect the basics of the previous raised stage, at 20 feet deep and 30 feet long. If funds allow, the committee has approved the addition of two dressing rooms on the back of the stage, like there was before.

The last day of school this year will be Friday, May 18th. We will have graduation on Thursday, May 17th at 7:00 pm. The ceremony will take place in the gymnasium. On Friday, May 18th, we will have our annual Awards Assembly. The assembly will take place in the gymnasium and begin at approximately 9 am. We will have an early dismissal on that last day – dismissing at 12:30 pm. This week the third and fourth grades are finishing their MAP testing schedule. We will also be completing makeup tests for any students who were absent during testing time. The students have been working hard and taking their performance seriously. We congratulate them on their efforts. The students in grades kindergarten through second will be taking ITBS [Iowa Test of Basic Skills] tests the second week of May. It is extremely important that students be in attendance, have plenty of rest and start their day with a good breakfast. This will put students in position of doing their best work on their tests. The results of the ITBS tests are used to evaluate the student’s progress from year to year. The students in grades 3-6 attended the Children’s Literature Festival on Friday, April 20th at Truman State University. The students listened to three authors tell about their writing process. The students had read books written by those authors and asked questions related to that author’s writing. Many of the students were able to get books they had purchased autographed by the author that had written them. This opportunity for the students is wonderful! The teachers and the students enjoyed in immensely. On May 10th, students in grades 3-8 will be traveling to Jefferson City to tour the Capitol Building. While there, the students will visit the legislative chambers to watch our legislators work, will view the Thomas Hart Benton paintings, experience the Whispering Gallery and visit the History Museum. The tour has been arranged by Senator Stouffer’s office. Representative Shively will provide lunch for the students and visit with them during that time. Afterward, the students will visit the Missouri Highway Patrol Headquarters and Museum. Students are looking forward to learning more about Missouri.

Judge Tucker Accepts Award

Judge Tucker is shown with his Daniel O’Toole Award.

On behalf of the 41st Judicial Circuit, Presiding Judge Tucker has accepted the Daniel O’Toole award, given by the Supreme Court of Missouri. This is the third time the 41st circuit, which includes Ma-

con and Shelby counties, has received the O’Toole Award. The O’Toole Award is given to circuits for efficiently managing and processing cases during fiscal 2011.

“Daniel O’Toole left as his legacy his commitment to an efficient judiciary,” Supreme Court of Missouri Judge Zel M. Fischer said. “This commitment is crucial – timely case processing is fundamental to

an effective judicial system and to justice itself. The staff and judges in this circuit should be commended for their commitment to providing timely justice to the public.” Missouri’s case-processing time standards, which became effective in 1997, serve as guidelines for the time various kinds of cases should take to handle. For example, half of civil cases should be disposed within 12 months, and 90 percent of civil cases should be disposed within 18 months. The guidelines recognize that some cases are more complex and require more time. They are designed as tools, therefore, to achieve the overall goals of efficiency, productivity and quality of justice rather than as absolute requirements. The O’Toole Award, named for the late judge’s service as the first chair of the time standards monitoring committee, recognizes the success of the circuits in handling cases in a timely manner. To qualify, a circuit must achieve at least five of the 10 case-processing time standards and must not be more than 5 percent from achieving the remaining standards. The 41st circuit, which met 9 of the 10 standards, is one of 12 judicial circuits to receive the O’Toole Award for fiscal 2011.

Country Living Rain, rain, go away… come back another day. I don’t know about you but I am sick of rain, for now. The ground is so soggy and the gravel roads are starting to show signs of rock being eroded by water paths. Everywhere you step outside you may either get your shoe wet or muddy. The grass is growing by leaps and bounds and is hard to keep up with this maybe a result of us buying a push mower this year. I can remember when I was a kid (not all that long ago) we would run bare foot the majority of the time we were home and the grass would be so dead that it would be crunchy under our feet. The yard would be a pale yellowish-brown and sometimes we could go three or four weeks without mowing the yard. My dad and grandpa always watered their gardens so you could be sure to see a little green foliage in their yards, but rest a sure it wasn’t going to be grass. My grandparents lived on a hill and I could see a car coming for quite a ways, not because it made any kind of noise but because the trail of dust it would leave behind. The dust would sometimes just linger in the air and engulf the trees around the road, sticking to the leaves like coats of paint. When it was time to finally mow the grass nobody wanted to mow the piece by the road. It was the dustiest piece of the entire property, but if a breeze was blowing just right it wasn’t so bad, I guess. That’s another thing, the breeze; it would get so hot sometimes I would wish for a little storm in the summer just for the breeze or wind that usually came before it. Once, grandpa had a jersey cow in the barn and she was going to calf very soon.

He asked me if I would like to walk down to the barn and see if anything was happening with the coming of the calf. I was a little girl and jumped on the invitation. It was so hot outside that day. We arrived at the barn and the cow was under the pavilion on the barn. A nice breeze started to blow and a tiny, dark cloud popped up. It started to rain, grandpa got excited as he always did when rain would come, he said how the ponds needed water and how nature needed a shower. That didn’t mean much too me then, but I listened anyway because when grandpa spoke you listened, that rule still stands, by the way. That tiny little cloud dropped rain for what seemed like ever. The cow didn’t have her calf so no big news at the barn. We thought we could wait out the rain in the barn, grandpa said it couldn’t last too long. I was thinking grandma probably had supper ready by now and I think grandpa thought the same thing because he said we were going to make a run for it. He threw an old blanket over me that was hanging on the barn wall and off we ran all the way to the house. We ran inside the house and we were soaked to the bone, as grandma put it. She came running with towels and dried us off. Even though it was a scorcher that day the rain drops were cold. I was right, supper was ready. Dad came in the house and grandpa laughed and told him the story of what had happened to us and how the only rain cloud in the country soaked us to the bone. That’s Life in the Country.

My grandparents lived on a hill and I could see a car coming for quite a ways, not because it made any kind of noise but because the trail of dust it would leave behind. The dust would sometimes just linger in the air and engulf the trees around the road, sticking to the leaves like coats of paint.

Beyond the Warnings by Caleb Pagett The sky is black but the stars are crisply shining. It reminds me of being back home in Missouri on a clear night with no moon. You can see thousands of stars in one glance at the sky, turn your head a little and you’ll see thousands more. In San Diego, the city lights always drown out the depth of the stars, much like we drown out the depths of the needs of other people. I started this journey a month and a half ago. So much has happened already that it feels like I’ve been here for a year, but at the same time it’s like it just began yesterday. A couple weeks after being here I started meeting some older kids. They are anywhere between 14 and 20 years old. The school system here is two years shorter than in the U.S., so most of them are out of High School by the age of sixteen. The family I’m staying with doesn’t speak a whole lot of English, but Kuya Ed, with the greatest of intentions for protecting me, told me, “Those are bad boys.” Don’t get me wrong, some of them I was even sketchy about, but I knew God had placed them in my life for a rea-

son and I know the Spirit is leading me to be a light in their life. One kid in particular is Jay-Ar. We would say he is “ghetto” for lack of a better term, but even him I felt like God had something for. The first time I actually hung out with some of them was awesome! They invited us to go to the river with them, so April and I went while Jimmy and Alex stayed home. This was my favorite day of being here. As we were walking to catch the tricycle to take us to the river, the kids were using huge green bamboo leaves as an umbrella from the sun. We arrived at the river and there were a few more friends there stacking rocks to create a burner for the food they were about to cook. We all lined up at the top of the hill and sprinted down, one at a time, to jump off the cliff into the water. Andre Bon and Lysander started cooking fish and then rice over the fire they made. Soon the food was ready and the bamboo leaves that were once being used for shade became not only our table but also our plates. They were celebrating Joed’s birthday, so they cut up tomatoes to spell out his name before we sang to

him. After the song we all dug in with our hands and started eating. There is no such thing as being a germ-a-phoebe here! The river was also where God showed me that these kids were placed in my path for a reason. Being a missionary and being white, everyone is watching you. Everyone knows your business whether you know it or not. Most of the kids at the river were drinking. Knowing that we are being watched all the time almost made me leave the two empty alcohol bottles lying there in the bushes instead of throwing them away with the rest of the trash. That is when God revealed to me why these kids didn’t know who He was. Everyone has already given these kids the title of being “bad boys,” so nobody was willing to go after them. Jesus himself did not come to save the righteous but the unrighteous. When we truly look at ourselves in the proper perspective, that is when we realize that we are all unrighteous and in need of a Savior. At that point I picked up the bottles no longer worrying about judgment from the lady standing at the top of the hill, and took them up

there to be thrown away. One of the things I was able to share with them that day was how God desires to meet us where we are. Just because they are drinking or doing whatever it is that they know they shouldn’t, doesn’t mean that God doesn’t desire to be in a relationship with them. No, He desires to meet us where we are so He can take His rightful place in our lives. He will be the one to set us free from those things holding us down. So despite the warnings I received about this group of kids, there are now eighteen of them that come to a Bible study I host in the plaza every Tuesday night. Each week there has been an increase in the number of people there. That is all because God is meeting each one of them in their brokenness, not requiring change before they can come to Him, but changing them as they come! Romans 5:8 – But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
