Celebrations It’s a holiday with heart
Well, I missed the last weekend of January to tell you what I’m Pinterested in since I got hung up on all the lighting info. Here is what I’ve been pinning lately. It’s all about Valentine’s Day. Since I no longer own a flower shop, I can get excited about this holiday again (being a florist brings out a whole other side of this lovefilled holiday).  I love, love the mantlepiece that “Diary of Dave’s Wife” blog created. First she started with a simple black frame with no back and no glass placed on her mantle with a red heart hung in the middle. She anchored each side with black vases filled with white flowers. She then placed red and white gingham framed in red frames. She finished her mantle off with a garland made from varying sizes of red, white and black felt hearts, has the cutest Valentine’s Day printable coupons and tags. They also have cute ideas for presenting them. I encourage you to take a peek and the best part is they are free. I am so sending this next one in Ashton’s Valentine’s Day box. It’s the “Love Bomb” This is super easy and very inexpensive, but it packs a lot of fun. You will need a brown paper lunch bag, scrap construction paper (colors of your choice), a canvas or heavy paper, contact paper, white glue, and/ or a hole punch. Begin by cutting the scrap paper in small pieces (like confetti) using scissors or a whole punch. Place confetti

in a bag. Cut a heart out of construction paper. Since I am sending this to Ashton I will send her directions on the following. Place the heart on the canvas, spread glue all over the canvas (be sure there is a lot of glue along the edge of the contact paper). Place on the floor beneath you. Blow up the bag (don’t suck in.). Bam, pop the bag and allow the confetti to fall onto your canvas. Gently push the confetti off the heart to the edge. Allow to dry for a few minutes and peel off the heart. Then allow the finished project to dry overnight.   I found the coolest fingerprint art on You can find easy instructions on their website. Check out more pins on my Living Wisely Pinterest account.

Satanic verses
A refresher course in Psychology and Physiology might open our eyes to what Satan is doing to our youth today. We know that our brains record everything we have seen, touched smelled or tasted. So it follows that everything we have seen or heard, just as stimuli from the other senses, remains in the brain forever, building a pathway of memory that has power over the person. Even when he is no longer able to remember the words, the stimuli to act is there. People usually don’t act without first thinking or hearing something that moves them to act. Satan is having a heyday now because he has people convinced that it’s OK to hear and see anything because of the freedom of speech. Some Christians think it is OK to watch R and X rated movies because they are in the privacy of their own homes. Our youth feel right about listening to the decadent words of some of the songs that they listen to now, not knowing that the words, once entered into their minds, bring forth actions that are not only unacceptable but outright sin. I had the occasion to read some of the lyrics to one song during a youth meeting. I am guilty of complete ignorance about the lyrics of the songs of today. However, my ignorance will be short lived. When my children were in their teens the songs were mostly about sex. Now, my dear readers, they are about killing and being killed. One of the lines in the song I read said, “I am Satan and I am god.” Another encouraged the listener to kill others and himself. The three most recent shootings played out just as if to a script. They killed others and then themselves. How many of the killings that are happening today are the product of this one song. I was so shocked at the words of that song and my own ignorance as to what the youth of today deem acceptable. So back to the introductory paragraph of this writing. If a person listens to the decadent words set to music it is sure that actions will follow. Music has a power that takes words into the mind and the more that the person hears the words set to music, the more likely of action to follow. I fear that it’s too late for some, whose minds have already been given over to Satan himself. But Jesus has the power to cleanse the mind. I’m not saying it won’t take a while, a time to battle the forces of evil. However, there is one thing of which I know I am right. Satan is using all the senses of the unsaved and the saved to gather all he can onto the road to hell
Being self-centered
Many of society’s problems are caused because people are so selfish and self-centered. The same is true of the church. Often we think only of ourselves and how a particular issue affects us. But there is one place where we need to be more self-centered; when we read the Bible we ought to read for self not for others. This book of books was written just for you. Certainly every page of the scripture was written in a specific context. Just as certain is the fact that every page had a specific meaning and application for the original reader. That truth has never changed, nor will it. However, the scripture is living and active. It is the sharpest tool ever invented. It means the same thing no matter who happens to be reading it, but it cuts you in different ways from how it cuts me. Those cuts are for our healing, for our benefit. That is the beauty of God’s living word. You and I have a deep seated tendency to read a passage, lean back in our easy chair and muse, “They should ...” or “We need to ...” I think there is a better way to absorb and apply the Scripture. When I read the word of God, my musing ought to be about what God wants from me, not from anyone else. It is a very subtle and tempting trap to think in terms of what other individuals or the whole group ought to do. It is far more profitable to come to the Bible with an intentional focus on what God is asking me to be or do. It is far better to meditate on the change that God is asking me to make in my life. Please do not misunderstand my meaning. There is not a “truth” for you and a “truth” for me. We all have the same general disease; we are slowly marching toward death. We all have different specific maladies whether they are diabetes, lung cancer, kidney failure, hardening of the arteries, dementia, etc. These all call for different treatments and yes, different surgeries. The same is true in our spiritual health. We all suffer from the same general disease; we all sin. but we have different specific maladies, whether they are gossip, murder, idolatry, fornication, theft, lying, homosexuality, adultery, mistreatment of the weak, etc., etc. Thus we all need different types of treatment and yes, different surgeries. Hebrews 4:12-13, “The word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 — And there is no creature hidden from his sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” (NASU) If I read the Bible with a specific, direct, and intentional desire to hear from the living God, he will speak. He will also perform the specific surgery that I need. His word will cut away the tumors, the infections, the cancers, etc. that are hampering my relationship with greater accuracy and precision than any earthly medical doctor. They “practice” medicine. God does not practice anything. He does it perfectly every time. I ought to read the Bible to see Christ and to see me. If I only see Christ, I never recognize my need for a Savior. If I only see me, I will be driven to the depths of despair, lost without hope. I need to be self-centered in my Bible reading. I need radical treatment and surgery, which only the living God can perform. Steve Ellison of Hot Springs Ark., is camp administrator of the Ouachita Baptist Assembly in Mena, Ark.

Love from Latham
Betty Qualls
where they will burn forever and ever. The most successful thing that the evil one has done to Christians is to make them believe he doesn’t exist. But to the non-Christian he has done the opposite. He has convinced them he is alive and that he is the god to follow.  God help us to keep our eyes open to the deceitful actions of the devil and to remember to pray for the youth and tell them the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Wade and Betty invite all who will to come to Latham to worship with us. Our times are 10 a.m., 6 p.m. on Sunday. That’s all for now. Love from Latham. Betty Qualls is an ordained minister with the Independent Pentecostal Assemblies, and has been writing for the Poteau Daily News for 20 years. She is a musician and teacher for Latham Church.
Aunt Bea was 102 years old. My husband and I lived next door to her for 37 years. Our son, Doug, and granddaughters, Hunter and Tanner, also lived beside her, so we saw each other daily. She could not get out and about anymore, so she stayed home and watched evangelists on television. Any time anyone went into her home she had a gospel channel playing. I told her about the angel praying for Richard and about his healing from cancer. She looked at me and asked, “Linda, do you think I could ever see an angel before I die?” I told her that God said, “You have not, because you ask not.” I told her to ask God to let her see an angel if that was what she wanted. Two weeks later, I went out the kitchen door at 6 a.m. to get the paper to read while I had coffee. The music from her house was so loud, I could hear it the moment I stepped outside. I was scared because I knew she never liked to get up before 10 a.m. I ran as fast as I could to her house and went in the back door. I ran to the living room and found her with her eyes closed, her hands in the air listening to Jimmy Swaggart singing on television. She had abrasions on her forearms, her cheek and her lower leg. I turned off the television and asked her what had happened. This is Aunt Bea’s testimony about her angels. “I got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I put my hand out to brace myself against the closet door in the bathroom, but it was open and I fell into the closet. I knew that I could not get up without help, so I decided to just stay there and sleep until you got here in the morning. The clothes hamper beside the closet door has washcloths stacked on it. I felt something hitting my face and opened my eyes. There were two teenage girls and one teenage boy standing there throwing those washcloths at me. I at first thought they were Hunter and Tanner and asked how they knew that I had fallen. I asked them to help me up, but every time that I reached up to touch them, they backed away. I realized that they were not back-

ing away but floating away. They let me know that they wanted me to sit up. I told them that I could not do that because I did not have anything to hold on to and pull myself. I don’t know how, but I was sitting. The girls had big fluffy towels in their hands and started handing them to me. I put one under my hips, and they wanted me to get to my bed. I again don’t know how I did it but I was sitting on the floor beside my bed. They all started putting those large white towels under my hips without touching me. They kept stacking them under me until I was even with my bed, and I rolled over and covered with my quilts. I thanked them. They gathered the towels and floated up toward the corner of the ceiling and disappeared. Linda, Do you think I am crazy?” I answered, “Aunt Bea, you asked God to show you an angel. He showed you three. No, you are not crazy. There is no way you could have gotten off the floor without help. God loves you very much.” After getting her cleaned up and some breakfast, I went into the bathroom. The closet door was open. All the shoe boxes on the floor were scattered and I could tell that she had fallen. There on the floor was a little pile of washcloths. I knew she saw her angels. She went to be with God two years ago at the age of 103. I miss her yet. Thank you Jesus for all you do. Most of all thank you for dying on the cross for me. If you don’t bless me with one thing more, you have already done far more for me than I could ever deserve. Thank you. Linda Schmuck has been a Registered Nurse for 48 years.

Compassion proves we care
In his article, “Voice of Compassion,” well known author and speaker Steve Goodier describes a bitterly cold January, 1935 night in New York City when then Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia dismissed a judge in the city’s poorest ward and presided over night court himself. Goodier says the first case to come before the mayor regarded a poor woman who was charged with stealing a loaf of bread because her daughter, whose husband had abandoned her, was sick and her two children were starving. Moved with compassion for this tearful, tattered, grandmother, LaGuardia chose a course that satisfied both law and grace. Telling the woman the law makes no exceptions, he fined this poverty stricken grandmother $10; then, reaching into his pocket, took out a $10 bill and paid her fine. He then announced he was fining everyone in the courtroom 50 cents for living in a city where a grandmother had to steal bread so her grandchildren could eat. The surprised grandmother went home with $47.50 that had been contributed by policemen, court employees, petty criminals and even the grocer who had charged the desperate grandmother with a crime. The parable of the Good Samaritan teaches the value of compassion. Here is a man who while traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho was attacked by thieves. These criminals stole his clothes, injured him and left him half dead (Luke 10). Two religious leaders passed by who thought they were too busy to stop and help him. They were both on their way to carry out religious responsibilities they considered more important than reaching out to this wounded man. Then a compassionate man the world has come to know as the Good Samaritan came along and after caring for his wounds transported this victim of a violent crime to a place where he could be helped and housed, even guaranteeing the funds needed for his care. The prodigal son was a great disappointment to his father (Luke 15). He asked for his inheritance before it was due, then headed across the border where he wasted his money, finally finding himself feeding hogs and so hungry he felt like sharing their fare. There in the pigpen, he decided to return home, hoping his father would forgive him. He needn’t have worried for he was soon to learn how much his father cared. This compassionate father had been watching and waiting every day for the prodigal’s return and as soon as he saw him

in the distance ran to meet his wayward son with open arms. He was out of breath but he wasn’t out of love. Our Lord’s compassion toward the poor, the grieving, the defeated and those rejected by society demonstrated his love for all people. Crowds followed him because he understood their pain and cared. Compassion moved him to lovingly meet them in their times of need. When we present his message with the compassion these troubled people found in him, we’ll see changed lives and packed churches. An anonymous writer observed: “Sympathy sees and says, ‘I’m sorry.’ Compassion sees and says, ‘I’ll help.’” Goodier adds: “When we learn the difference, we can make a difference.” Well said.

Q: I know the 2014 Winter Olympics will be held in Sochi, Russia. I've looked on a map to locate the city, but I can't find it. Where is it located? What can you tell me about the city? -- O.L.M., Keene, N.H. A: Sochi is located on the Black Sea coast, near Russia's border with Georgia. The permanent population of the city is more than 300,000.

A: The first eight athletes in an event receive a "victory diploma" from the International Olympic Committee. As you said, the first three finishers in an event receive a medal plus a diploma; the next five receive only the diploma. According to the IOC, there have been approximately 1,300 medals made. Q: I once heard the Olympic motto. I didn't understand it; I suppose it was in Latin. What is the motto, and what does it mean in English? -- L.C.Z., Wood River, Ill. A: The Olympic motto is "Cit-

You won't need to take any idle time this year. You will be focused and prepared to meet every demand that you face. You will have no trouble achieving whatever it is that you set out to do. You will be highly organized, and your ideas will be well-defined and ready to be put into action. A financial upgrade is also very likely. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Do not allow anyone to play with your heart or call your emotional stability into question. Give yourself some time to think. Uncertainty around your love life is evident. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Secret encounters may lead to a thrilling adventure. Be cautious about sharing details about private affairs. Now is a great time to take a pleasure trip if you can. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You may have an unrealistic idea about your environment and your current position. Be sure that you're clear about your range of obligations. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Emotional deception may lead you down the wrong path. You must face whatever is at the heart of the matter if you want to put it right. Be precise and completely honest. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's best not to promise anything that you can't actually deliver. You are prone to spending too much right now. Resist the temptation to agree to any joint financial ventures. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your lover may feel the need to resort to emotional blackmail if you have been neglecting his or her needs. Burn your energy through physical activities. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be careful what you say to your colleagues today, or they may misinterpret you. Think carefully about your reactions. Taking a drastic approach will not make up for past mistakes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Children may choose to fib about their whereabouts today. Traveling will work out well, whether for business or pleasure. Avoid get-rich-quick investment schemes. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Problems with gas, oil or water in your home may mess up your day. Be careful if you choose to fix your own appliances. A family member may be overindulgent. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Bureaucratic delays may cause anxiety today. Get all of your papers in order carefully. Avoid institutions or hospitals if at all possible. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A business trip may lead to a new opportunity. Be willing to make any move that will broaden your horizons. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Offering goods or services may be a way to make a bit of extra cash. Think about ways to include the whole family in a business venture.
