New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 12, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas Religious focus Hvrald-Zfitunf Friday August 12, 1983    SA Ministerial alliance Inner peace comes by ref lecting on gifts By REV CHARLES DeHAVEN St. Paul Lutheran Church Folks always seem to be in such a hurry to get where they are going so that when they arrive they tend to lose sight of where they are. For example, how often do we find ourselves rushing to a crowded parking lot, hurriedly going into the store only to return and wonder out loud, “Now where did I park my car?," "No, it’s not here!," “Maybe it’s stolen!" or “Help!" In returning home after a long day I so often find myself hastily seeking relaxation to the extent that on the following morning I ask. “Now where did I lay my keys?," “Where are my shoes*>" It was Peter who when dealing with the impatience of people wrote, “a thousand years are in the sight of the Ixird as one day." I have a hunch we’ve kind of turned that around to read "In my life if I am going to be successful or excited abut life there must be a thousand years in my day — I’ve got to fill each day with one event after another." And thus, as we attempt in our hustle and bustle of life we find such excitement by jamming years into days we miss the opportunity to live and celebrate one moment at a time. As a result of such a life-style it could be that while we're traveling with such anticipation, such anxiety that we reach a point in the journey we don’t recognize where we are — similar to being lost in the parking lot and separated from the car. Such a vision of life - out there somewhere — keeps us zooming forward seeking one experience after another — shopping for something we may already have and have missed simply because we haven’t celebrated our arrival or become aware of where we are. As a child of God I would be better equipped if I would only pause and note my surroundings. The problem arises in that such a moment requires time — the very thing that each of us confesses that we don’t have enough. What we don't realize is that in effect we are saying, "I don’t choose to make time." We have such a struggle in realizing that we make or create them. It is not something we find. We may find a twenty-dollar bill or we may find a lost article, but we don’t find time. We are merely managers of our own time. Thus, we must conclude that we are responsible for our use of time. Time for relationships. Time for relaxation. Time for reflection. Yes, time for prayer and worship. And certainly even time to note where we have parked our cars or placed our keys. Perhaps it is that if you add your name to the list of these who are continually asking "Now where did I ..." you too could receive the gift of inner peace by just pausing more often and reflecting upon the gift of time that God has given you. I^et us together let God have a thousand years in each day if he so chooses, but let us as mere mortals celebrate one day at a time the daily “arrivals” of our lives.Tree of Life plans service Jerry and Kathy Baker will be leading a senile of singing Sunday beginning at 7 p rn. at Tree of Fife Fellow ship. 125 Highway 81 West Jerr> Baker was raised on the mission field in I .atm Ameni a and understands the nussion work ami understands the meaning of a “socalled faith walk." says the pastor of Tree of Fife He also lias experience in knowing what it is like to be totally dependent on (iud.

Heidi Stem is an agunah — a chained woman Mrs. Stern is one of several thousand Jewish women in America, from California to New York, from the most observant to the least, whose husbands have refused to dissolve their marriages. A sample of America’s agunahs: —Susan Avitzur, wife of a Watervliet. N Y., federal employee who holds a doctorate.
