Main Marshall, MN Community Blood Bank and Sanford Tracy will be holding a community blood drive on Monday, February 4 from 1 - 6 p.m. at Sanford Tracy. This blood drive will benefit the local blood sup- ply. Blood is traditionally in short supply during the win- ter months due to the travel schedules, inclement weath- er and illness. February, in particular, is a difficult month to maintain the blood supply at adequate levels. We invite individuals that have donated multiple times as well as those that are donating for the first time. A person can donate blood every 56 days. "Due to the cold and flu season preventing people from donating blood, Community Blood Bank has experienced an 18% decrease in blood dona- tions," states Ken Versteeg, Executive Director, Community Blood Bank. "The need for blood is con- sistent at Sanford Tracy. We encourage the community to donate blood at the blood drive on February 4 to help boost the local supply. Donating blood is a very easy way to impact a patient's life." Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with a signed parent con- sent form found at www., weigh 110 pounds or more and be in good general health the day of the donation. Please bring an ID with you. It is recommended that you eat and drink plenty of fluids before donating blood. It only takes 20 to 25 minutes with Community Blood Bank. Community Blood Bank is the sole provider of blood and blood products to 30 local area hospitals, includ- ing Sanford Tracy. For more information call 212-4170. Walk-ins are always wel- come. Tracy community blood drive This blessed psalm, penned by David at the end of his life, looks back over all God had done for him. In the first part of the psalm the sheep are in the Valley. We have the picture of a flock in repose, its wants supplied, lying in the midst of abun- dance. They are completely satisfied. We see them both pas- sive (lying down), and active in (being led to the water). He makes me to lie down in green pastures. The sheep is totally dependent upon the shepherd, who alone can cause the sheep to lie down, rest, relax, and be content, quiet, and flour- ishing. It has been found that sheep will not lie down unless four requirements are met. They must be free from fear, ten- sion, aggravation, and hunger. Sheep are so timid that even a rabbit can scare them. If one sheep runs off, two hundred others may follow. Nothing calms and assures sheep so much as the presence of the master among them, day or night. For the believer, the presence of Christ should dispel all fear, even of the unknown. We can either live in a sense of fear, anxiety and foreboding, or in quiet rest. For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and eta sound mind (2 Tim 1:7). A sound mind is a mind at ease. In every animal society there is an established order of dominance or status within the group. We call this 'the peck- ing order' in chickens, and 'the butting order' in other animal groups. Usually an arrogant, cunning old ewe is dominant. She pushes other ewes and sheep away from the best grazing areas. Because of this rivalry, it is hard for the sheep to rest as there is always tension and competition for space and rights. Unfortunately, this goes on among people at the workplace, and even in the church. People are trying to maintain their space, their position, or they are just trying to be heard above others. We are no different than sheep. What happens when the shepherd comes among the sheep? They drop all their envy and bickering and focus on the shep- herd. All are content. God also wants the believer to be con- tent. He wants us to look unto Jesus, our Great Shepherd! Godliness with contentment is great gain (1 Tim 6:6). When my eyes are on the Master, they are not on those around me. I can rest and be content with His plan for me. Freedom from aggravation will be dealt with later in the psalm. Insects can be a real problem for the sheep. They go to distraction over them, and surely cannot lie down and be at rest. The shepherd must take great care to help them, putting on ointments and keeping a watchful eye. A hungry, ill-fed sheep is always on the move, trying to find some way to satisfy its gnawing hunger. Most sheep are raised in dry, arid areas where there is not much foliage. Green pas- tures do not just spring up. It means that the shepherd is going to have to take much time to turn rocky soil into fruitful fields. Jesus likewise works to clear our lives of the rocks of unbelief, bitterness, and pride. He sows the seed of His Word, waters it with His Spirit, and constantly keeps watch so that the fields will be verdant and vibrant. Christ wants the believer a land'flowtng with milk and honey. He wants tts,to.,hc;con[gaL with His care, and rest in Him. Yet, our sin-nature would rather have us feed on the barren, inferior soils. Few Christians really enjoy the abundant life of peace, joy and contentment. How about you?
