The Suwannee River crested Thurs-
day at just over 32.7 feet at Branford,
more than five feet below early projec-

nonetheless, though damage estimates
were not immediately available. (See:
related story, this page.)
The Suwannee had already crested
at other points in the county. Early
projections suggested flooding might
exceed 1973 levels and rival the
record flood of 1948. The worst pre-

Composting and horticulture displays


A big hit at

volunteers were surprised
at the number of ques-

worked the UF IFAS
Florida Friendly Land-

display. Fair-goers got
first-hand information
from the MG volunteers.
They were taught how
even something as simple
as a trash can with holes
in it can create compost.
Simply by saving yard
clippings, leftover fruit
and vegetable scraps and
coffee grounds we can
start composting and
turning our waste into
black gold.
A variety of bins were
on display for a range of
budgets. There were two
bins that were homemade

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT



Sexually transmitted diseases


By Cindy Morgan, Suwannee County
Health Department


STD's are serious. Everyone who has sex needs to
know about sexually transmitted diseases, also called
sexually transmitted infections. Some STD's infect only
your sexual and reproductive organs. Others (such as
HIV, hepatitis B, and syphilis) can cause general body in-
fections. Sometimes you can have an STD with no signs
or symptoms. Or the symptoms may go away. Either
way, you still have the STD until you get treated.
STD's can be passed from one person to another
through vaginal, anal, and oral sex,'and sometimes by
genital touching. Some STD's (HIV and hepatitis B) are
also spread by contact with infected blood.
There is a significant amount of social stigma associat-
ed with STD's / STI's. Because people don't feel com-
fortable talking about STD's, the discussion is pushed
under the rug and many students underestimate the
prevalence of STD's in their age group. According to
CDC, adolescents (10- to 19- year olds) and young adults
(20- to 24- year olds) are at higher risk for acquiring
STD's for a number of reasons: they may be more likely
to have multiple sexual partners rather than a single,
long-term relationship; they may be more likely to en-
gage in unprotected intercourse; and they may be in-

Statistics concerning students state that:

MEN:
*an unusual discharge from your penis.
WOMEN AND MEN:
*sores, bumps, or blisters near your sex organs,
rectum, or mouth

GET CHECKED. Don't just hope the STD will go
away. It won't. Most county health departments have
special STD clinics. Private health care providers also
treat STDs. You may feel embarrassed about having an
STD. It may be hard for you to go to a provider or clinic
for help. But you must get treatment for the STD. This is
the only way you will get well.
GET TREATED. Many STDs can be cured (such as
Chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, syphilis, and tri-
chomoniasis). Others cannot be cured (such as genital
warts or HPV, herpes, and HIV/AIDS). But all STDs can
and must be treated. Many STDs can be treated with an-
tibiotics. Do exactly what your provider tells you. Be
sure to take all of your medication. You must also tell
your sexual partner(s). If they aren't treated, they can get
sick, they can spread the STD, and they might even give
it to you again!
PROTECT YOURSELF. NOT HAVING SEX IS
THE BEST WAY TO PROTECT YOURSELF from
STDs. Having sex with only one uninfected partner who
only has sex with you is also safe. If you do have sex,
use latex condoms with a water-based lubricant every
time you have vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Condoms will
help protect you from STD much of the time. Both men
and women should carry condoms. Talk to your partner
about past partners and about needle drug use. Don't
have sex with someone who you may think has an STD.
Look closely at your partner for any signs of an STD-a
rash, sore or discharge. If you see anything you're wor-
ried about, DON'T HAVE SEX!
The only way to know for sure if you have an' STD is
to get tested. If you have any symptoms, stop having
sex. Go to a doctor or STD clinic. GET CHECKED
NOW! Don't put it off.
The Suwannee County Health Department offers STD
testing/services to anyone. Hours for these visits are
Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. 3 p.m. No
appointment is necessary. Your visit and information is
kept private and confidential. Parental consent is en-
couraged, but not required for these visits. The fee for
these services is based on a sliding fee scale.

7 days



a week
There's nothing more frus-'
trating than having a storyI
and not being able to tell it.
Especially when it's a life-
and-death story that could
well impact every one of
your readers.
That's how things had al-
ways been for small town
newspapers, in the: event of
major disaster, The news
'changed by the hour, but you
could only report on it once
(or, as in our case, twice) a
week.
The World Wide Web has
altered that equation consid-
erably.
During the recent flooding,
We've been able to update
events on our Web site as
they happen. And folks have
responded by the thousands.
As of Thursday morning;
suwanneedemocrat.com had
reached the 350,000 mark in
monthly page views.
That's quite an impressive
;figure for a town our size.
And quite a responsibility.
Thanks for your trust, folks.
We promise to work round
the clock to keep it.

Please address letters
to: Letters To The Editor,
Suwannee Democrat,
PO Box 370, Live Oak,
FL32064.
Please include your full name,
address and daytime phone num-
ber.'We ask this so we can verify
your letter and discuss any ques-
tions about it with you.


Rant


Want to vent? Our

hotline is open 24/7.
Suwannee, Countians, it's time to speak your mind! How? By call-
ing the Suwannee Democrat Rant and Rave hotline. The hotline
never closes and is your way to let it out. You can let everyone know
how you feel -- as long as you express yourself in a respectful way.
Notq: In written entries to Rant and Rave, errors in spelling,
grammar or punctuation are those of the authors.
To acheive economic development in our county I suggest the
following: get the trucks out of town, additional free parking in
Live Oak, try the carrot & stick approach to commercial prop. own-
ers downtown, (clean up facades & empty lots, uniform signage,
lighting, etc.) reward those who will & chastise those who won't.
Encourage recreational & cultural events, even on Sunday. Get rid
of the alcohol restrictions. Revamp Tourism Developement & get
newcomers, involved in the political process, (bye bye good 'ol
boys). Fairly simple, huh?
Three's a good start! Now, let's go after ALL of the other pirates
arid retake the captured ships! Any pirates taken alive will walk-
the-plank!
Why do some people have no consideration for others? Suwan-
nee County is a lovely and peaceful place...or it would be if every-
one would pick up after themselves and' not throw trash on the road-
sides and if everyone would be considerate of their neighbors and
'others by not playing LOUD music at all hours of the day and
night., A night people who have to get up early would greatly ap-
preciate quiet after 10PM and those who work nights would very
,..much appreciate it if you would tone it down'during the day...espe-.
Sirall' the BASS. A little consideration for others is all i'm asking.
Thanks > :no *'
where do i start? im so upset i can hardly type or think! I just
came from the suwannee high band booster meeting,mrs. copland
the best thing to happen to the band in 10 years was saying goodbye
and she and i both didn't know why? she has elevated our program
to, new heights,she cares,she puts in countless hours of time and ef-
fort,look at what her son has accomplished with her love and
teachings....marine band..awesome!LOOK AT HER TRACK
RECORD! DOES PERFORMANCE COUNT??? mrs. lamb and mr
scarsbrough both said that answers to these questions were inappro-
priate. are you kidding me? the room was filled with parents of

ave
band parents who were volentering to sell chicken dinners and wash
cars to support the band,how could the timing be any better for
them to explain there decision than in front of all the people that it
effects? instead they stonewalled me arid said no comment, this is
not the place or time ..........WHAT! what better time, am i taking
crazy pills or what, this is not over mr. scarsbourgh or ins. lamb.....I
WANT ANSWERS!!!
I want to know where'FEMA is for the individuals who got flood-
ed in Dowling Park.
Need some great entertainment on Saturday nights? Well let me
tell you where to find some,on the first and third Saturday night of
the month at Millennium Park in downtown Live Oak at 6 p.m. Last
Week's band Generation was fabulous. They. play great country mu-
sic. They also,have a food vendor there who serves the most deli-
cious hamburgers and chilidogs. So tell your friends and come en-
joy the fun. I know where I'll be.
Well as you can see your city and county commissioners do their
best thinking on their bottom end. Back during the summer when it
was so dry they didn't do anything about the drainage problem,
clean the pipes, ditches, so forth and so on. Now when we are get-
ting this well deserved and well needed rain the water is not going
to where it needs to go and it's, backing up, washing out roads and
backing up into people's homes and so forth and so on. So you
know it looks like they can't do their jobs properly and so it looks
like that when it comes election time again, people need to look at
getting rid of the good ole' boys and put in some new fresh blood.
Although it should have been done several years ago when it was
first built, it is now time to name the new fire station in honor of the
late Howard Wright.
Editor's note: Folks. for months we've been asking,you joeep
submissioMn to this'column 'ti under-45 seconds (that's about 150
words). We want everybody to have a chance to be heard. We're
therefore discarding submissions that are overly long. We want you
to rant (or rave), but.not to rant on and on and on. Please keep ft
short and to the point. If 45 seconds isn't enough time, write a Let-
ter to the Editor (Guidelines for letters appear on Page 6A.)
Callers to 208-8314 may express their thoughts, good or bad,
24/7 about community issues and politics, but not about private in-
dividuals or businesses. If you prefer, you may e-mail your com-
ments to nf.editorial@gaflnews.com. You don't have to give your
name, and please, take no more than 30-45 seconds for your com-
ments. Let us know what's bugging you.

/ov'e hert


Oscar was like a child to our
family; my parents even called
hez their "granddogger." She
brought a smile to the faces of
everyone who came in contact
with her, from the people
passing by her in the car to
little children who always
wanted to pet her. We always
said she didn't know she was a
D-O-G and not to-tell her
because she would require
therapy. Oscar came to us at
six weeks of age and left us 12'
years later. We're better
humans because of her. The
love and loyalty she brought us
was unconditional. If only
people greeted each other the
way she did when we came
home each evening.

DAMAGE MOUNTS Emergency

1.141 homes destroyed

i or badly damaged
* By Jo Ross
JASPER Damage continues to mount in the wake
of record flooding here. Emergency officials estimate
that 56 Hamilton County homes are a total loss and
'that 85 have sustained major damage. Another 100 or
more remain inaccessible.
Along the Alapaha and Withlacoochee rivers, 16 or
so people have been rescued from rising floodwaters.
Staff and volunteers at the Hamilton County
. Emergency Management Operations Center are
, working around the clock to provide relief to area
-. residents who have been affected by the rivers that
have overrun their banks in every corner of the county.
Many are working on little sleep, have been called in
from other counties and state agencies to provide
Smuch-needed assistance.
"We've experienced tough times in our county and I
can't thank the state of Florida enough for the
sources they have sent in to us and for the great
| lumber of people they've sent to help out in this time
of need," Hamilton County Sheriff J. Harrell Reid told
the Jasper News.
Reid said an essential services center was scheduled
to be opened at the Civic Center Tuesday morning to
help those affected get the help they need.

"Whether it's replacement of lost driver's license or
assistance in applying for financial help, victims can
stop by there and get help," he said.
As the number of residents directly affected by the
rising water soars, members of local law enforcement,
local fire/rescue, the Board of County Commissioners,
the County Coordinators office, the local Health
Department, emergency medical services, Florida Fish
and Wildlife Commission, Florida State Emergency
Response Team, Florida Department of Law
. Enforcement, The Florida Urban Search and-Rescue
Task Force, Florida Division of Forestry and many
others cautiously monitor weather conditions and flood
levels
Along US 41, the Alapaha River has receded
somewhat and water no longer stands in homes. Along
the Withlacoochee, however, the water is still
preventing residents returning to assess damage.
According to Cindy Davis, a member of the
Jacksonville Division of the State Emergency
Response Team who has been assisting Hamilton -
County Emergency Management in compiling rescue
and recovery costs,
that figure exceeds $113,000 for April 3-9 alone.
Final figures will not be available until the waters
have receded completely and operations return to
normal. The expenditures are expected to be
partially covered by state and federal disaster relief
programs.

an early start

But it took rising
waters to convince
some to leave homes
By Vanessa Fultz

JASPER The Hamilton Emergency Operations
Center and other local and state agencies have been
working hard to keep folks safe and protect their
property, if possible.
Workers began distributing fliers to homes and
campsites along the Withlacoochee and Alapaha
Rivers on April 3, urging residents to leave. But by
Saturday, April 4, some who didn't heed the warning
,needed help getting out.
"It took a big jump overnight," said Hamilton
County Sheriff'J. Harrell Reid of the rising waters.
Workers began rescuing residents by boat on April
4 and had continued their efforts through last
Thursday.
Senior Ranger Robert Marvin of the Forestry
Division aided in the efforts. He helped rescue one
resident from her home, located.west of Jasper near
the Withlacoochee. The water was up to the door.
Another resident's yard was flooded.
"She said in all her years she has never seen water
in her back yard (to that degree)," he said of the:
woman who has lived there nearly 40 years.
Hamilton County Emergency Management Director
Henry Land said during one incident he went to check
on a resident who had previously refused to leave his
hom. .
"We were wading knee deep to do that," Land said.
During rescue efforts, Marvin saw three sinkholes
open up.
"One of them swallowed a hay baler," he said.
Reid said the EOC has been at Level 1 since
Sunday afternoon, meaning the center has been
staffed 24 hours a day.
About io evacuees were housed for a time at a Red
Cross shelter at the VFW in Hamilton County. Others
have stayed with friends and family.
Debra Jones and her mother, Ruby Collins, left.to
stay at the shelter.
"I couldn't sleep if I.stayed because I didn't know
what it was going to be like when I woke up,",Jones
said.
The flood brings back'memories for Collins. Many
years ago she remembers leaving in a boat from the
steps of her house due to rising waters. Collins. 86,
couldn't recall whether or not it was the 1948 flood.
Jones said that last week she went to check on her
home, located on family property near her mother's.
She said the water didn't completely cover theroad.
But when she came back about three hours later, she
had to drive through water above her car tires on the
same road.
The water was later up to Collins' home on NW
34th Loop. She lives less than a mile from the
Alapaha.
"You can hear it running from the river," Jones said
of the rising water.
Reid said waters around the two rivers have
reached as much as three to four miles inland in some
arbas.
Numerous roads and bridges remain closed as of
Wednesday, but the bridges at SR 6 and CR 150 have'
reopened.
Reid said a State Emergency Response Team is
assessing the situation. Hamilton County officials are
requesting relief from the federal government.
Anyone affected by the flooding is asked to call the
Hamilton County EOC at 386-792-6647.


River crests-




at 98 levels

' Worst predictions didn't materialize


:By Vanessa Fultz
MAYO Lafayette emergency officials
will work with the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency and the state next week to
assess damage-to homes and property, coun-
ty Emergency Management Coordinator Al-
ton Scott said Wednesday.
Scott said he is not aware of floodwaters
causing any residents to become trapped in
:. their homes or on their property.
0 "A lot of homes are built on stilts along the
river," he said.
Scott said Water reached as much as a half-
',mile mile inland near the south end of the
county.
There was damage, though.
Just past the Hal Adams Bridge in
.Lafayette County, a boat ramp that was under
construction is completely submerged. Three
stakes sticking out of the water was the only
*.indicator of the structure.
Lafayette County Commissioner Donnie
.,.Hamlin and Robert Folsom, a land surveyor,
r..were at the scene on Monday. Nearby the
'.flooded ramp, was a pole that marked the
1998, 1973 and 1948 flood levels. The water
stood at the 1998 level on Monday.
"Before the rain started the river was at 19
feet; now it's at 46 feet," Hamlin said.


'This is nothing compared to what it's
been," Folsom said, looking at the pole.
Nonetheless, several properties have
been affected along the Suwannee River.
Joe Tharpe and his girlfriend,, Denise
Williams, were paddling by boat to check.
on Tharpe's property near NE CR 354.
That's because Old Bridge Road, leading
to the property, was completely under wa-
ter.
Members of New Hope Baptist Church F
had Easter services under a tent on higher f
ground due to flooding of their church lo- (
cated off 354. A
Charlie Walker, the church's pastor, said a
water in the church was about two feet a
deep on Monday and was still rising. -
Church members had the pews taken out ,
in anticipation of flooding.
Walker said this will be the second time
since he's been pastor that the church has
been gutted and renovated due to flooding.
The pastor anticipates the flood to be
slightly worse than the 1998 flood, based on
rising levels on Monday.
Walker and Vasco Murray, a member of
the church, had to paddle over Old Bridge
Road to assess the church.
"It's over your head in some places," said

The church is about three-quarters of a
mile from the river.
The Suwannee crested at 46.68 feet Tues-
day, according to the Suwannee River Water
Management District. The 1998 flood crest
was 47.1 feet, SRWMD records show.
Scott said 44 county roads remained
closed as of Wednesday. The Dowling Park
Bridge at CR 250 reopened on Wednesday,
as well as CR 250 and CR 354.

that result from magnetic forces.
"My current work stems from a tradition-
al oil painting practice,'" said Atzberger. "In '
much of my work, simple processes repeat .
or built up in layers that evolve into com-
plex systems."
Artist Lou Haney of Mississippi is featur-
ing a series of paintings in the exhibit.
"My work explores the excess, absurdity,
and intensity of American culture through Z5K' ,
images fund in vintage magazines and Artist Eliza
books," said Haney. "There.is an innocence
and sincerity to these images. My goal is to
exaggerate and expose these visual conventions by paint-
ing the images larger and brighter than the source. One
can ignore a small printed image, but a large saturated
painting becomes something to be reckoned visually and
conceptually."
Artist Paul Rutkovsky is an art professor at Florida
State University in Tallahassee. His works featured in the
NFCC exhibit are pen and ink with occasional'color that


focus on connecting technology to our lives.
"Whether I'm working with young students in Poland
using computers, HIV individuals in Syracuse, collecting
debris with students in Lithuania, Latvia and Finland, or
art students at Florida State University, the primary focus
for me is to connect the technology to our lives, to miti-
gate the barriers between flesh and silicon," said
Rutkovsky.

A air conditioning unit is not working which
could have been prevented with professional maintenance.
We do recommend annual air conditioning check-ups in
the spring and a heater or furnace check-up every fall.
Although regular checkups will not'absolutely guarantee
that a unit will continue to work perfectly throughout the
season, they will reveal most small problems that can lead
to major, far more expensive problems, if left unattended.

He argued that pho-

could be substituted for the
evidence.
Jeff Siegmeister, Ellioft's
defense attorney, argued
dthe remains should remain
in evidence during Elliott's
appeal.
"This is not a normal


case, the bones are in evi-
dence," he said.
Fina has taken the matter
under advisement.
A Suwannee County jury
convicted Elliott on April 3
of first-degree murder in
the November 2007 death
of his mother. He was also
found guilty of abuse of a
dead human body and tam-
pering with evidence.
Elliott will be sentenced

Her daughter told her about Dr. Charolette Gerry a local dentist in town that had
fixed her teeth. She said she like the dentist a lot because she was gentle. frinendl
and a \er\ warm person. "Momma. she has an ad in the ne%\ paper for a 10) Point

When she Gent for her 10 Point Healthy Teeth & Perfect Smile Examination for

Suzy thanked her daughter for the recommendation and said. "The way they

SDear Parents:
. We are nearing the end of another school year. This time of the year brings about a lot of emotions from our
* high school students. Freshmen will no longer be the low men on the totem pole, sophomores will inch closer to
senior year, juniors will become the top dogs and seniors are transitioning to that next level. The memories that
are made during high school are truly meant to be savored. We, the members of the Suwannee County Drug Free
-Coalition, want these high school memories to not only be cherished but safe also.
End of the school year events are upon us and parents, we need your help to keep our children safe.
Preparing for prom is a time honored tradition. The right date, the right hairdo and of course, the right dress are
all important! In preparing your children for prom, make sure that you prepare them to be safe on prom night.
It is important that while we are helping our children get the right look for prom that.we keep them mindful of
These facts: Alcphol-related crashes are the leading cause of death in this country. Teenagers die every year front
alcohol poisoning. Underage drinking is against the law. As parents and authority figures, it is imperative that we
Drive this fact home to our children.
House parties are popular, but did you know that it is illegal to give anyone, even your own'child, under the
age of 21 an alcoholic beverage? Even if you have the permission of the other children's parents and it is served
in your own home it is still illegal. Trust me I do not want to preach. I am simply giving you the facts..
For the past 3 ,years I have had the privilege to help chaperone the After Prom Party that has been held at
,Melody Christian's multipurpose building. The fun starts immediately following Suwannee High School's prom.
.Coincidentally, Branford High's prom is the, same night also. The prizes that are given out are phenomenal! Wii
..game consoles, iPods, Xbox 360, gift certificates to Oak Ma#l stores, Java Jax, tanning salons are just a few of
the prizes given away. The DJ plays what the kids like to listen to. Free tasty food is available. The building and
parking lot is secure. The only catch is the students must present their prom tickets to get in.
It is an awesome experience to help out with this wholesome activity for our children. As a parent of soon-to-
be prom goers, I will definitely allow my teens to come to the after party. If you cannot tell, I am a big fan of the
- After Prom Party!
- I know that I ari not alone when I say that I do not take our children's safety lightly. Parents, it is up to us to
make this prom a safe and memorable prom.
I look forward to seeing your prom bound children at the After Prom Party this Saturday, April 18 where a
good time will be had by all!
Sincerely and thankfully,


Carla F. Blalock, proud parent and

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Washington,




Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
Last week I wrote
it took the Cleveland
Indians five games to
get their first win.
The Washington Nationals haven't
won their first game yet. They are the
worst team in baseball and may ,
challenge the 1962 Mets for losses in
a season. The three top pitchers have
a 25 game below .500 lifetime record.
One first baseman, Dimitri Young,
was suspended a few years ago for
assaulting a sausage in Milwaukee.
The other first baseman, Nick'
Johnson, has spent more time on the
disabled list than Dick Cheney has
spent in an undisclosed location. Two
of their outfielders, Lastings Milledge
and Elijah Dukes, have special (
helmets because they are such head
cases. Should we be surprised they
have no wins?
The original Washington Nats;
sometimes Senators, last wdn a
pennant in 1933. They left after 1960
to move to Minnesota. The American

At Middleburg the ladies gave up seven

Easter people: Jesus as destination and guide


By Derek Maul

Welcome to the
days that follow
Easter. Church last
weekend was a su-
percharged cele- I
bration in all the
right ways. The
experience electri-
fied me and I'm
still full with the life that
saturated the day. But I'm
concerned the charge may
be residual rather than ac-
tive.
My wife, Rebekah, used
her morning message to
discuss how. easily we tend
to consign Jesus back to

'4matier@windstream.net

An illustration I heard
once seems to be so apro-
pos for these days:
"When feeding the cattle
b e sure to put some of the
'corn in the bin low enough
so the little calves can get
i't."
The title of this message,
"KISS," is an acronym for
"Keep it short sweetheart."
'There was a story told
"'bout the preacher's wife
that would begin blowing
kisses at her husband as he
began to get over the allot-
-'ted time 'for his sermoii b6"
Sunday morning. Well in
S stead of "Keep it short
sweetheart," I would like
-"fis to think of it as, "Keep
it simple sweetheart." You

bother us) and
then roll the
stone securely

again. Later,
and.only maybe
depending on
how we're feel-
ing at the time -
we just might open it a
crack and take a peek at
the Christ-life, but only
every week or so.
I call this the "Jesus as
museum exhibit" syn-
drome.
Do we come to church
each year to listen to the


down low where the little
ones can get it!
\ While explaining to pe(
ple God's simple plan of
salvation you don't have
to use terms to make you
sound important! Someone
has said the most impor-
tant things in the Bible ar
the simplest and what
could be more important
than the plan of Salvation
telling someone'how. they
can know they have a
home in heaven?
One very simple way tc
show a person how to be
saved is to use Isaiah 53:(
illustrating it by holding
something in your hand (
wallet for instance) and
passing it from one hand
to the other as you read
the verse. "All we like
sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one
to his own way; and the
Lord hath laid on him the
iniquity of us all." One
hand representing the, per-
son you are talking to, the
other the Lord Jesus
Christ.
Another way, the way I
use most often, is called
S{i~ Romai'Road 'because
all of the scripture refer-
ences are from Romans.
You first show the person
that he is lost using R9-
mans 3:23 which tells us
that everybody has sinned

want to be a part of the
story?
Easter day may be
growing harder to remem-
ber as it falls away in the
rear-view mirror, but Jesus
hatched a plan to be vital
and real and relevant in
every moment of every
new day. So it's with'de-
liberation that I have cho-
sen to start today and
every day in a devotional
posture with the empty
tomb front and center.
It's all about getting the
right start, and I know how
vitally important initial
trajectory is to anything


You go on from there to
show him that because of
o- our sin we deserve to be
eternally separated from
God using the first half of
Romans 6:23 "For the
ae wages of sin is death."
Here you would explain to
e the person that "death" is
separation and the ultimate
separation is eternal sepa-
; ration from God; dying
and ,going to Hell. >From
there you show him Ro-
mans 5:8 which shows
him from God's Word that
God loved him so much -
6 that the Lord Jesus Christ
showed that love ("com-
a mended his love") by dy-
ing on his behalf! Now go
back and read all of Ro-
mans 6:23. Explain the,
difference between a
"wage" and a "gift." Tell
him in order to get the gift
all he need do is ask for it.'
And then read to him Ro-
mans 10:11-13. Ask the&
person if he believes he is
a sinner and believes that
God would save him if he
would ask Him to do so. If
he says, "Yes," offer to
pray with him. If he says,
'"'No,"'ieminld him of the'.'
truth of what you shared
with him and that he does-
n't need you to get saved
but he does need the Lord

we want to accomplish.
Today's trajectory is not
only toward Jesus but it
encompasses Jesus too. Je-
sug is both destination and
guide.
I'm wondering how all
the details, and the con-
cerns, and the deadlines


and the conversations will
change character in light
of Easter truth; I'm won-
dering about the story my
life will tell via this day,
next week and the coming
year; I'm wondering if I
will have the spiritual for-
titude to keep the Prince of

also in my heart.
And I am wondering,
"What will we do with this

Nothing like landing on your


face to put you into place


The old saying about
pride is that it goes before a
fall. In my experience it usu-
ally leaves after one too.
Nothing like landing on
your face to put you in your
place. Webster's dictionary
defines pride as "an exces-
sively high opinion of one's
self." Pride is most qften ex-
pressed through arrogance,
the attitude of superiority;
lifting one's self up, and
looking down on others. Ap-
propriately called the "god
of I", pride 4is a huge enemy
to ouT relationships and our

own hearts. In fact, it is one
of the toughest we face because it de-
nies there is a problem. In Proverbs
13:10, the Bible gives us some insight
that will help us identify the presence
of pride:
"Pride only breeds quarrels, but wis-
dom is found in those who take ad-
vice."
Pride plays a starring role in our
quarrels, especially those unresolved
disagreements that keep being replayed
over and over. Pride also does not like
to be told what to do, refusing to take
instruction or listen to advice, another
sure sign. Pride specializes in dividing
people and stirring up trouble, and it
seeks its own glory, being right at the
expense of pushing others away. Pride
is a relationship killer.
In contrast, where pride divides, hu-
mility heals. In the original Greek lan-
guage, the word for humility comes
from a root ordi meaning, "to nake
low" and is defined as having a modest
opinion of one's self. In 1 Peter 5:6,
the Bible says: "Humble yourself un-
der God's mighty hand, that He may


lift you up in due time." We
can apply this to those quar-
rels and unresolved conflicts
by'following these instruc-
tions: Make yourself low, ad-
mit you may be wrong, or
even better, that being right
isn't all that matters. Then,
when God has the final
word, if we're wrong, we've
saved ourselves a fall and if
we're right, He will be the
one to say so! One more
thing worth mentioning
Ors about this verse is that it en-
Land courage us to humble our-
selves under God's.mighty
hand. Fear that others will
take advantage of us or cause us harm
will often prevent us from being hum-
ble, but under God's hand of protec-
tion, we can know that He has our
back! The flip side of humbling our-
selves can be found in Daniel 4:37
where God reminds us that "Those
who walk in pride, He is able to hum-
ble." God takes this enemy called pride
seriously because of the damage it
does to our relationships and our
hearts, so,we can either humble our-
selves, or He will do it for us, because
our hearts matter!

Blessings, Angie

We Reap What We Sow.

If we sow beans in the spring, we can't expect to reap tomatoes at harvest time.
Likewise. if we'sow animosity and discord, we shouldn't expect to reap peace and
harmony. In addition, there are natural
consequences to our thoughts, words and
actions; it seems they are part of the,
fundamental nature of things. just as
the law of cause and effect doesn't take a
holiday in the physical world, neither
does it take a holiday in the social and
spiritual realm. As a society, we cannot O V
expect to treat the most disadvantaged
* among us with disdain and not reap the __
consequences. As sociologists sometimes
say, every society gets exactly the
criminal element it deserves. Likewise,
individually we cannot expect to
mistreat people and not be adversely
affected. And even if the misdeeds are
only in our imaginations, there is still a
corresponding effect for every cause. If we
spend most of our time harboring ill will and
secret animosities against our neighbor, it will
'have its natural effect, if only to create a cloud of
rancor forever hovering over us. So, what we should sow
are seeds of love and will, making sure that our thoughts, our
words, and our actions are planting the kinds of seeds that will
ensure a bountiful harvest of love and goodness.

Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also
reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption; but he
who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

R.S.V. Galatians 6:7-8
