For seniors and shut- ins

Group created by flower lady

A group for seniors or shut ins who simply want to talk to someone about anything that you want. Our grandkids, our troubles and concerns, our loneliness. However, we welcome all. With age comes wisdom. With God we can accomplish anything together.

    G.H.W. God is climbing that mountain with you. There was this funny shirt that I bought Jazz one time. She was aways pretty sure she was defeated in life. It said: it's not the dog in the fight it's the fight in the dog. No fear! That tickled her pink, and me too. She wore that tee shirt out.
    I started to join this group: Catholics Surviving Abuse, but I thought about it and decided that I don't feel like bringing all that stuff from the past back up, as far as I am concerned it's thrown in the river! I have written one poem that makes me angry every time I read it. But I will say every time I read it I feel better so it must be doing some good. Writing is good therapy enough for me. I'm still praying for all of us. I've got a lot of things I'd like to do today, hope I get it all done. It looks like it is going to be another bright and sunny day here. I really enjoyed my friend yesterday. We talked and laughed about a lot of things in the past. We have both been in the neighborhood for about 25 yrs. She lives about 5 blocks away, so we see each other all of the time. We are both silly old ladies.I like silly, silly is fun. I hope I find a ride today I want to shop. I want some new dresses and a pair of shoes, and I need to put my suits in the cleaners.I gave them to my son last week and I asked him yesterday did he get them out, come to find out he never put them in. He's still riding around with them in the back of his car. Well, they say, if you want something done do it yourself. (He makes me sick, LOL!) Have a great day! Brenda

    G.H.W, Second day so far not smoking. If you could go once you could go twice. Just take baby steps and you will be fine, I'm sure through the grace of God. In time. Our Lord will be patient with the both of us, I pray. Thank you so much for praying the Divine Mercy for me. I rested well last night too, and thank you for the jokes, we needed a good laugh.
    Horgan, No I did not know that. All that I can remember is I think his name was Bill. (Don't remember the last name) You live and you learn. I love your story about the canannite woman. Oh, by the way my little great, great, niece is a little over a yr. old, she is a living doll! Her mom and her moms parents are from Australian. Now here is the thing about the woman in your story, I do as she did; I ask God for the same thing over and over again, I never give up, and yes He has taken and long time sometimes to answer my prayers and He has even shown me a few miracles in my life, but isn't that kind of persistence a sin sometimes? I worry about that. Aren't we suppose to ask Him once or twice and let it go and assume that if you don't get what you ask for, he does not will it for you? I get afraid that I worry God and therefore he thinks that I don't trust him or am trying to force him to say yes to my prayers and that I might anger Him. What do you think? Is there a point where a line should be drawn? I feel like he's looking down on me saying," Don't you know what NO means". LOL! Is that stubborness or great faith? I do know that about me from a kid, I do not want to take no for an answer when there is something serious that I think I want or need. I'm not talking about sinful things. Well, I guess God knows how he made me to be. I don't know I get confused about how God wants me to be sometimes.
    Hi Hecares and S.K. and all, hope you are enjoing this beautiful day! I don't know what the weather is like there but it is sunny and bright here. My girlfriend just called and is on her way over, so I will chat with you guys later. Going to see what kind of snacks I can set out for her. Have a blessed day all. Brenda

    Did you find a book club, Sheilkathy? It is so generous of you to share your books, and it would be good to share ideas with others who are reading the same books.. It takes me away from all my problems when I read a good book. Maybe it will do that for whoever picks up the books you donated.

    I started to say "unfortunately" but that's not really a good start to this thought. I have been reading a lot for study and inspiration lately. I guess the unfortunate part is that is doesn't leave much time for recreational reading. I'm starting to feel a little burnt out with life's challenges, not with the things I'm reading, so maybe it's time to take a break for a good book.

    God bless you. Enjoy your books.

    I'm sorry everything didn't work out for you, GHW. I understand from your post that daily Mass is impossible at this time; but how about AA meetings. I was surprised that you had the courage to go out and try them. I know how hard it is for you to be around groups of people. I hope AA is still possible for you. If it isn't I know that you will find another support so that you will win your battle. Prayers and blessings.

    Greetings and best wishes to one and all!!This Sunday's Gospel is about the Canannite woman.To me she was a woman of tireless persistence.It seems that little,if anything could discourage her.From Jesus she met a wall of silence.She kept asking.Then she met a rebuff (like we do do sometimes) She threw herself at the feet of Jesus.Next she copped an insult.She turned the insult round with a flash of humour and finally got what she was aksing for,,,the cure of her daughter.It is that kind of persistent faith that keeps our faith alive.It is a faith that is tested in the daily struggles of life.It is a faith that copes with illness,poverty,death and the failure of our high ideals She is the only person in the N,.T. that got the better of Jesus" Keep the faith alive. All the best for a quiet & peaceful weekend.Adrian:yyee ss:

    Gods Holy Will,flowerlady hecares & alia:Peace! An Australian priest was the founder of A A in Australia.He was so addicted to alcohol that he used to hide his statch in the cistern of the toilet! He overcame his addiction and helped thousands of others from all walks of life to overcome theirs.He was a remarkable man,followed the 12 steps of A A ,and the Serenity Prayer was a means of success.Sometimes,he said the only thing to do is to sit still in prayer,often not even finding words,but simply trusting that there is a love which surrounds the whole of creation even when it did not seem to be particularly close.His faith in A A was tested in the daily struggles of life and helped him to be a high achiever.Hope this is of help.Best wishes for a fantastic weekend .Adrian

    sheilakathy - Great idea!!!

    Here are a couple of funny jokes that I shared on the CLEAN jokes group!

    I Pledge Allegiance

    Not quite getting it, the little first grader said, "I led the pigeons to the flag."

    Beauty

    A little boy watched, fascinated, as his mother covered her face in cold cream. "Why do you do that?" he asked.

    "To make myself beautiful."

    When she began to rub it off, the boy asked, "Why are you doing that? Did you give up?"
