Dilemmas

Our journey in life is sometimes clouded by the uncertainty of a dilemma.  We wonder which fork in the road to take and how it will affect a later season of our life.  Sometimes we become bogged down in the decision making process and sometimes feel we have a clear picture and go full steam ahead towards the goal.

“Can my neighbors keep three feet of my property just because the fence has been in place for more than 10 years?”

Question:  Before my neighbor or I bought our houses, previous owners put up a fence between the two properties.  We have both lived at our properties for more than 10 years.  I found out that the neighbor’s fence is actually about three feet onto my property line but was told that I can’t make them move their fence any longer because it has been in place for more than ten years.  Can my neighbors keep three feet of my property just because the fence has been in place for more than 10 years?

The Borger Bulldogs used a lot of little things to hand the Golden Wolves their first defeat of the year.  But in the end, the two platoon system of the larger school took it’s toll on the Wolves, and the fresh players started to wear down the mighty Wolves giving Borger the ability to control time of possession and keep the Wolves offense off of the field.  In the battle for first place in the district race both teams fought hard, but the Bulldogs had fewer mistakes and went home with a 12 –3 victory over the Golden Wolves

Choices

By Rev. Judi Wiegman

We have been teaching a class in Sunday school called Manna.  It is all about living on God’s daily provision and being content with each day.  The discussion has been strong as different class members share the experiences of life along their journey.  Each week we have all gone home carrying a new perspective on what it means to really trust God for the daily provisions of our life. This class is really growing us, and for some, stretching has occurred.
