Johnson, Justice Of e Peace, Precincts l&2, place 1, Donley County has relo- cated his office from the Court- house Annex to the Doniey County Courthouse, 300 S. Sully (telephone number 874-2016). Justices Of The Peace are elected county officials. Their major responsibility is to preside over the Justice Court and the it's amazing how careless oc- currences that one might con- sider ridiculous can actually serve as a reminder that humans aren't as powerful and sufficient as they would like to be. I'm referring to a simple item such as car keys. They had a vezy humbling effect on me. One morning, a couple of years ago, I bad left home at the usual time for my classroom. I'm thankful for my 30 years of teach- ing, and consider it another of God's many blessings. I was feeling quite confident, almost to the point of being rather self- suffi- cient, as I drove my car into the school parking lot. After I got out of the car and closed the locked door with an air of authority, I in- Page 3 stantly realized something was lacking. My keys were still in the ignition! The situation's reality suddenly overtook my feeling of self-sufficiency. Someone else had to open the door before my keys could be retrieved, before I could even drive the car, over which I had felt so powerful a few mlnutes ago. Even though the incident has since become amusing, I have never for- gotten the humble feeling I ex- perienced while phoning and as- king my husband to bring his set of keys. I really didn't have ultimate control after alL And so it is with many of life's situations. Even though God allows me to take charge of my life, I must do it with humble submis- sion to Him, never forgetting that he is all-knowing, all- loving, and in complete control of His crea- tions.
