They will be celebrating with special music, and serving the cake and coffee. They usually will bring a card for the guests of honor and share a few words too. Last week was great; we had devotions with Bonnie Swanberg. Ruby Bergquist and Sylvia Larson came in that afternoon, and we played Bingo, Tuesday Bob Peterson costumes, and he did some adorable skits. It was hard for Pastor Karl to follow that act, but he did. Pastor Karl came in later that afternoon, and he sang hymns just beautifully, and the residents joined in on their favorite songs.

In the past five weeks, you as a community have opened your hearts and your wallets to give generously for two teenagers in the Bagley and Shevlin communities. What a joy it has been to observe how you have responded with your smiles and your financial support, to make life for these young men and their families so much more optimistic. What does your smile mean to others? We just want to share this short poem about the importance of a smile. "A Smile" A smile costs nothing, but gives much. It enriches those who receive; without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.

It brings rest to the weary; cheer to the discouraged; sunshine to the sad; and it is nature's best antidote for trouble. Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen; for it is something that is of no value until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give. (Author anonymous) Please keep smiling! It is worth more than a thousand words!

Hill River Electric Ted Berglund A Master Electrician Commercial & Residential Locate broken underground & repair Electric Heat Installations FREE ESTIMATES Gully: (218) 268-4013 tfc Morning Manna By: Ali Johnson Nothing Can Separate Us Knowing our own weaknesses, we find ourselves continually feeling as though we are falling short of God's expectations. We can stand confidently in God's promises, for they are always yes in Him amen (2 Corinthians 1:20). First, we know he is good and rewards those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). Second, His mercy endures forever (Psalm 106:1). Jesus' blood doesn't just cover sin, but it completely wipes it away (Colossians 2" 13-15). "There is therefore, no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1). Weak love is not hypocritical love, but on the contrary, with true repentance and a humble heart, we can be bold and courageous in the mercy of God. When we come to Him daily, giving the first commandment priority in our hearts (Mark 12:30), we are chaste virgins (male and female) before Him in the courtroom of GOd (2 Corinthians 11:2). We now say "Nothing can separate us from the love of God" (Romans 8:39). The mercy of God outruns and outlasts the depths of our sin every time; it endures forever (Psalm 136:1). We must not put off the building of our relationship with Him. Nothing stands in the way; the door is wide open to us. He loves and cares for each of us andis touched by the things we are concerned about (Hebrews 4:15). Pastor Joseph Prince reminds us of God's unmerited favor: "It is important for you to eradicate the notion that the Lord is present to find fault with you. You may have been raised in an environment where your parents were constantly picking on your faults and pointing out your mistakes, but don't project this characteristic onto the Lord. God knows every idiosyncrasy about you, yet He loves you perfectly because He sees you through the lens of the cross, where His Son has removed every failing from your life! So even your current argument with your spouse is washed by the blood of Jesus. The Lord's presence is with you not to judge you or to smack you on the head with a giant bat the moment you fail. No, my friend, His presence is with you to direct you, guide you, lead you into becoming more like Christ, and to make you a success in every endeavor you undertake" (Unmerited Favor, page 53). Oh, how grateful I am for the unmerited favor of God! We can cast all our cares on Him, because He does care for us (1 Peter 5:7). "If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning. Face it, friend. He is crazy about you!" (Max Lucado). "Come unto me all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28). Take the time to look up each scripture presented here and make it your morning manna today. "The day is coming when I will wipe every tear from your eyes" (Revelation 21:3-4, paraphrased). b( i[ i;;$$}7[i!11i l$[llill:[lIIIlii](iilIlflllflitllillillll|lllll]tff: I Ii; ,,1 ,,,,1 ,m t lJ)l,;ll ll} m ;1I ,1 ',ii]";l[;']] r II11llill:[i$|lltillill,llllllllllllllllllllllliT 1
