She was leaning towards baseball; however either decision might have resulted in stormy weather for the afternoon.

The name of the rose is Electron, and Jim purchased it in memory of Lavonne's father who lived in a small community called Electron after the company he worked at Doris Baker made a trip to Weiser on Sunday afternoon to visit her good friend, Mary Shirt.

The Rininger household has been a bit "back"ward this past week, but hopefully will soon be going strong. Jenny Rininger had surgery on Wednesday on her back, and is doing well and enjoying the relief her surgery brought. Mary, however, managed to shake the bug she had the week prior, but must have shook too hard, as she came home from Jenny's surgery with a very stiff back that has had her taking it easy. Many get-well wishes are sent their way. Ron Meyer knows there is no keeping Janet at home when Hells Canyon Days are in full swing, and has given up trying. Janet had the best weekend by becoming the yard sale queen of Cambridge as she sought out and found many, many treasures. Over Memorial weekend, she and Ron worked on their garden, and so far they have sixty-seven tomato plants in the ground! Pastor's Corner Are You Up for Adoption? by Wayne Freedman Being alone! What an awful feeling, whether it's in the woods, in the dark, or just in life. The emptiness of no one being there to care is the terrible trauma of the orphan. Whether he is abandoned by circumstances beyond his control, or the rejection of a parent or parents who wouldn't or couldn't provide care, this pain is particularly personal. But what if in their emptiness someone does care enough to offer to adopt them, chOoses to welcome them into their family, to unconditionally love them as their child? That just might seem too good to be true! Today in. our society adopted children, seldom reach the relationship plane of naturally-born offspring. Confessing, "I'm adopted" often brings a sympathetic, but in Bible times this revelation had an entirely different reaction. You See, in those days when parents didn't have any children, or theirs were unworthy of becoming the heir to the estate, they would often select a child from among their slaves or community orphans, Offering education and training they would be evaluated, and if approved, legally Ask Around.

Call 253-6077 ienist adopted. Adoption was powerfully permanent. By Roman law anyone who was adopted could never be disowned, though a natural son could. An adopted child was the object of unconditional love and legal personal security. In Romans 8:15 the Apostle Paul describes the Holy Spirit as "The Spirit of Adoption:' Who gives us the privilege of calling God, "Abba [Daddy] Father." Then in the next verse Paul says the Holy Spirit, Himself, testifies that we have become God's children, using the word for naturally born offspring. Do you know that God wants to adopt you? But that's not all. He also wants to cause you to be "born again" supernaturally into His family, making you an heir of His both by adoption and by birth, giving you the best of both relationships, forever. So, I have to ask, "Are willing to put yourself up for adoption, or are you choosing to remain an orphan for eternity?" The choice is yours, as are the consequences.
