January 2022 Newsletter

The Senior Times -A Publication of The Senior Network

Golden Nuggets

Every January people reflect on what they should do in the New Year. From losing weight, to being more successful, to breaking old habits, or just showing more kindness to others, we run the gambit of how we should change our lives. Most learn by the end of the month that all our good intentions are gone; we are left with a feeling of failure, depression, and sadness that could last until the next time the calendar year changes.

This frustrating cycles keeps us from feeling productive and fulfilled. However, there is a very simple alternative to being burdened down with regret and despair. You can live a life that is new and fresh every morning. A constant joy and hope can uplift your spirit as you experience a newness of life each day.

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23

This unbelievable truth allows us to rise each day with a new purpose and outlook on life. We are assured that God, in his infinite wisdom, permits us the hope of knowing that when the sun rises, we have a new beginning regardless of how we failed the day before. What peace and joy this should bring to your heart knowing that the God of the universe cares about you!

So shed the burden of despair and failure and lean on our rock of salvation, Jesus Christ. Feel renewed and refreshed each morning with a heart full of hope and true joy.

Happy New Year from The Senior Network!


Humor Me

A retired man volunteered to entertain a group of seniors in an assisted living complex. After telling jokes, singing, and playing on his portable keyboard he went to each of the residents to say goodbye. As he approached an elderly lady with a broke leg he graciously said, "I hope you get better soon." She replied, "I hope you do, too!"
