6A SUNDAY, JAN. 15, 2012 Around our area SIDNEY HERALD Bestword I can give you The best words I can give you this week are not my own. They belong to Fredrick Faber, a hymn writer and theologian from the 1800s. Faber was a radical in his day. The quote I am sharing is lengthy but good. I hope Him, but go slowly, fall a little behind; when he quickens His pace, be sure of it, before you quicken yours. But when He slackens, slacken at once: and do not be slow only, but silent, for He is you are blessed. Rural He writes, "In the spiritu- life al life God chooses to try our patience first of all by His slowness. He is slow: we Jane Hinrichs are swift and precipitate. It is because we are but for a silent, very time, and He has been for God." Waiting is a skill that comes naturally to no one, but it is a skill we all would do well to cultivate. For we will find we must wait all our lives. We wait for oth- ers. We wait for circum- stances. We wait for our- selves. We wait in public places. We wait to plant. We wait to harvest. We wait to see the seasons change. We wait to graduate. We wait to get married. We wait for the baby to come. Waiting is al- ways a part of life. When we have learned to wait in contentment we have gained much. Children hate to wait. Re- member how long it seemed eternity. Thus grace, for the most part, acts slowly. He works little by little. Sweet- ly and strongly He compass- es His ends, but with a slow- ness which tires our faith because it is so great a mys- tery There is something greatly overawing in the ex- treme slowness of God. Let it overshadow our souls, but let it not disquiet them. We must wait for God, long, meekly, in the wind and wet, in the thunder and the lightning, in the cold and the dark. Wait, and He will come. He never comes to those who do not wait. He does not go their road. When He comes, go with to take to get to Christmas every year? How long it seemed to take for summer vacation to begin? Maybe it's because chil- BY NICOLE HACKLEY dren look forward to big PREV[NTION PROJECTS COOROINATOR events in their lives: holi- days, the end of school, a birthday party. Maybe we have gained wisdom when we can live in the moment and enjoy the dailiness of our lives. Yet, we also need to recog- nize when the wait is over, when it's time to act. Too of- ten we don't because we aren't sure. We're timid. Waiting should never be used as an excuse. If we must wait, we ought to wait with anticipation, excited to see what life has for us. For 12 years I've waited for my middle son to smile in response to things I say. For 12 years I've wondered if he was happy. He's smiling now. Inter- acting with us all. Because of this I asked BY BILL VANDER WEELE him to watch two kittens for SIDNEY HEEALD me Monday morning. He agreed (he signs yes with his left hand). He was so proud of being able to help me. :An English Kim Schlothauer Licensed MaSsage Touch Day S Massages (Swedish or Deep At And he did the job very well.

Don't look toward the fu- ture so much that you forget to live today. Events don't make up a life. Moments do. Jane Hinrichs lives with her hus- band and six kids in the middle of South Dakota. Please check out her blog at Resolution for our youth hould be being better role models for them As we ring in the New Year, many of us are starting our New Year's resolution. Many of them have to do with eating better, losing weight, quitting tobacco or spending less money. One idea that STAND would like to share with our community is setting a resolution to be a better role model to our youth. Not just to the ones in your own home but to all of the youth in our communities. Our children look to the adults in their life for a guidance of be- havior that is or is not acceptable. Actions speak louder than words. Regardless of the verbal messages that you give to your chil- dren, the way you act and the things that you do will have a much deeper impact on them. As a parent, grandparent or childcare giver, resolve to: Manage your anger, control your violence, admit to your mistakes, be healthy, get involved, talk to your children about your beliefs and the beliefs of your family, be car- ing, truthful and responsible. Parents who want their children to grow up to be emotionally healthy, responsible adults need to provide a living example as to what that looks like. Your life together is like a classroom where the learning never stops for them. Until you hold yourself accountable for having a negative influence on your child and make changes to correct the behavior within yourself, you cannot expect your chil- dren to do as you say and not as you do. Remember, your child is always watching and learning from you. Show your child that you are responsible for your actions and they will learn to be responsible for their actions, too. To talk more about these Resolutions for our Youth, go to the STAND website at, or contact Bridget, Di- ana or Nicole at 433-4097.
