THOUGHTS & SMILES
This is good.  I'll never look at my hands the same!
Grandpa, some ninety plus years, sat feebly on the patio bench. He didn't move, just sat with his head down staring at his hands.  When I sat down beside him he didn't acknowledge my presence and the longer I sat, I wondered if he was OK. Finally, not really wanting to disturb him but wanting to check on him at the same time, I asked him if he was OK.
 He raised his head and looked at me and smiled.  "Yes, I'm fine. Thank you for asking," he said in a clear strong voice.
 "I didn't mean to disturb you, Grandpa, but you were just sitting here staring at your hands and I wanted to make sure you were OK," I explained to him.  

"Have you ever looked at your hands," he asked.
"I mean really looked at your hands?"  
I slowly opened my hands and stared down at them. I turned them over, palms up and then palms down.  No, I guess I had never really looked at my hands as I tried to figure out the point he was making. Grandpa smiled and related this story:
 "Stop and think for a moment about the hands you have, how they have served you well throughout your years. These hands, though wrinkled, shrivelled, and weak have been the tools I have used all my life to reach out and grab and embrace life. They put food in my mouth and clothes on my back. As a child my mother taught me to fold them in prayer. They tied my shoes and pulled on my boots. They have been dirty, scraped and raw, swollen and bent. Decorated with my wedding band they showed the world that I was married and loved someone special. They were uneasy and clumsy when I tried to hold my newborn son. They trembled and shook when I buried my parents and spouse and walked my daughter down the aisle. They have covered my face, combed my hair, and washed and cleansed the rest of my body. They have been sticky and wet, bent and broken, dried and raw. And to this day, when not much of anything else of me works real well, these hands hold me up, lay me down, and again continue to fold in prayer.
 These hands are the mark of where I've been and the ruggedness of my life. But more importantly it will be these hands that God will reach out and take when he leads me home. And with my hands He will lift me to His side and there I will use these hands to touch the face of Christ."

THOUGHTS & SMILES
Old age is coming at a really bad time!
When I was a child I thought Nap Time was a punishment . . . now, as a grown up, it just feels like a small vacation!
The biggest lie I tell myself is... "I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."
If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would've put them on my knees.

Of course I talk to myself, sometimes I need expert advice.

CHURCH NEWS –July 14

Some people try to turn back their odometers.
Not me! I want people to know why I look this way.
I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth,
-think of Algebra.

Take it or leave it.

Patient: “I have ringing in my ears”.” "I have a ringing in my ears."
Doctor: "Don't answer!"

THOUGHTS & SMILES:
YES, I'M A SENIOR CITIZEN;
I'm the life of the party..... Even if it ends at 8 p.m.
I'm very good at opening childproof caps.....With a hammer.
I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.
I'm smiling all the time, because I can't hear a thing you're saying.
I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.
I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.
I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.
Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time of my life.
Now if I could only remember who sent this to me? I wouldn't send it back to them. Or, maybe I should send it to all my friends anyway. They won't remember, even if they did send it.
Spread the laughter
Share the cheer
Let's be happy

Loving God, we come to you trusting in your mercy and knowing that your steadfast love endures forever. Look with mercy on those who are harmed or displaced. Give them strength to meet the days ahead, your peace which passes all understanding and new hope in the resurrection. Move in those who are able to give aid, that we may be your hands and heart on earth. Be with all who offer assistance, may your Spirit uphold them. As you have made water a sign of your kingdom, and of cleansing and rebirth, grant your people vision to see a new life on the other side of disaster.
To you be given all honour and praise, through Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord. Amen

THOUGHTS & SMILES:

Today, in the cutest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me to start recycling.
I chuckled and asked, "Why?"
She replied, "So you can help me save the planet." 
I chuckled again and asked, "And why do you want to save the planet?"
Because that's where I keep all my stuff," she said.

Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches
 with my
broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me. 
He
 helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving he
 said,
"I hope you feel better soon."

-Prayer
Loving God, we come to you trusting in your mercy and knowing that your steadfast love endures forever. Look with mercy on those who are harmed or displaced. Give them strength to meet the days ahead, your peace which passes all understanding and new hope in the resurrection. Move in those who are able to give aid, that we may be your hands and heart on earth. Be with all who offer assistance, may your Spirit uphold them. As you have made water a sign of your kingdom, and of cleansing and rebirth, grant your people vision to see a new life on the other side of disaster.
To you be given all honour and praise, through Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord. Amen
