Jeremiah 9:23-24Peter was a professional fisherman. He knew how toread weather conditions, where to find the best placesto fish, and when to end an unproductive session. Be-cause of his expertise, he may have silently questionedthe reasonableness of Jesus’ instruction. Why let down the nets when an experienced team of fishermenhadn’t caught anything all night?At times God asks His children to act in ways that may not seem logical. His request might involveleaving a job or ministry that He provided only recently, taking on more responsibility when life alreadyfeels overloaded, or accepting an assignment that appears better suited for someone with a different skillset. Perhaps God’s plan makes no sense in view of age, finances, or health. Yet, because of the One whoasks, it will be the absolutely right thing to do. We must decide whether to do what is sensible by humanstandards or to obey God.The Bible talks about many people who had to make such a choice. Abraham was asked to sacrificehis son. Noah was told to build an ark on dry land because a flood was coming. Joshua was given a mil-itary strategy of marching around Jericho instead of attacking it. Gideon, the inexperienced fighter, wastold to send most of his warriors home before the battle (Judges 7:2-3).Don’t make the mistake of allowing human logic to dictate whether you follow God’s plan. Trust inHim as Peter and those other faithful believers did. When they chose to obey what the Lord was saying,they all experienced divine power released on their behalf.
Tressa Gabriel, age 90, of Philip,S.D., died Tuesday, January 1,2013, at the Hans P. Peterson Me-morial Hospital in Philip.Tressa Belle Coleman was bornOctober 24, 1922, in Woodbine,Iowa, the daughter of Orrin Wes-ley and Goldia Belle (Thomas)Coleman. She lived near Pisgah,Iowa, with her parents and oldersister, Erma, until they left theirhome in the Loess Hills to move toHaakon County northwest of Philip, at the age of eight. Theytraveled at 45 mph in the Model TFord while their personal belong-ings and livestock were shipped toCottonwood on the train.On the farm, she helped milkcows, herd sheep, with chores rais-ing hogs and gardening. Hermother taught her to preserve veg-etables and to prepare wholesomemeals.Tressa attained an eighth gradeeducation at North Lincoln School.Being too far to walk, they rodehorseback when the weather per-mitted. In cold, snowy weatherTressa had a room and boarded at Axel Olson’s. An experience she and Ermatalked about often, was Erma tak-ing a rein from her horse’s bridle tokill a rattlesnake while she was onthe horse – something she didoften. One time, the snake caughtin the rein hooks, and the horsesspooked and ran full speed homewith the snake flying in the air be-hind.Tressa met her lifetime partnerwhen Floyd Gabriel arrived at herparents’ to purchase some hay.Floyd and Tressa developed a com-panionship that lasted a lifetime.Coleman’s were concerned aboutTressa and Floyd dating. For themto go anywhere, it was necessaryto take Erma and Frank, (Floyd’sbrother), along as chaperones.Tressa and Floyd were marriedMarch 17, 1941, in Philip. Theywent to Iowa and Nebraska to visitrelatives for a honeymoon. Quoteof Floyd’s taken from Tressa’sBride’s Book. “We got home in fineshape and found everything waso.k. We were a little wiser but justas foolish and wished our honey-moon to continue indefinitely.”This marriage was truly made inheaven. They were business part-ners as well. At first they sum-mered sheep for neighbors as wellas themselves on land for whichthey borrowed money to purchase.When Floyd was away helpingneighbors whose family memberwere serving in the war, Tressawas responsible for their business. After Beverly was born, Tressaloaded her on the saddle and tookher to tend the sheep all day long.Their only rest was a nap in theshade of the sheep wagon whilethe sheep bedded down by waterduring the heat of the day.When Tressa was in late preg-nancy with Larry, Tressa, leadingBeverly, took a sheep buyer to viewthe herd. He told Floyd, “You wanttoo much for your sheep, but I feelsorry for your wife so I’ll give youwhat you want.”Cattle replaced the sheep intheir business. Tressa still rodehorseback. “Dixie,” her mare, wasstill very important in her life.In addition to Beverly and Larry,a sister, Ruby, brightened Tressa’slife. In 1981, Floyd, Tressa andRuby began traveling the UnitedStates. Tressa enjoyed continuedtrips, collecting state plates andshot glasses while seeing most of the continental United States andpart of Canada. Tressa became anexcellent map reader, instructingRuby where to turn. Branson, Mo.,was the highlight of her trips.She was active in the DowlingCommunity Church where shewas baptized. She was treasurerfor many years.Tressa’s hobbies included play-ing the piano, which was pur-chased in 1956 to replace thepump organ which she played byear. She also played the violin, em-broidered, scrapbooked her chil-dren’s activities and trips, andenjoyed reading historical fiction.Leaving to mourn her loss areher three children, BeverlyHamann and her husband, Herb,of Clear Lake, Larry Gabriel andhis wife, Charlotte, of Quinn, andRuby Gabriel of Pedro; a doubleniece, Cindy Nuzum, of Buffalo;four grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.Tressa was preceded in death byher husband, Floyd, on February5, 1998; her parents; her only sib-ling, Erma Gabriel; and two great-grandchildren.Services were held Monday, Jan-uary 7, at the United MethodistChurch in Wall, with PastorHarold Delbridge officiating.Interment was at the WallCemetery.
