The Senior Times -A Publication of The Senior Network
It is so nice that we honor our fathers as most schools come to an end. This is a great time for dads to get to spend more time with their children. Daylight lasts longer and there is an easy, care-free feeling that adds to the enjoyment of special time with our fathers.
Legendary country singer George Strait expressed this father-child bond in his hit song “Love Never Ends, Amen”. He eloquently describes how a dad will always love his child regardless of the circumstances they face together in life. The last verse references to not an earthly dad, but our heavenly father.
Nothing could be truer than the words found in I Chronicles 16:34. It states, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.”
What a blessing it is that our heavenly father not only loves us forever, but He provided us with earthly dads so we can understand better what this eternal love means as we face each day.
Some of us have fathers we can enjoy now; others of us must rely upon the sweet memories of days gone by. However, all of us should honor and respect the special dad that God placed in our lives.
This Father’s Day reflect on how special a father’s love is to each of us. Think about how wonderful God’s love is to us. He not only loved us, but He allowed His ONLY Son to be a sacrifice for His children.
WOW! That is true, abiding love that NEVER ends! Amen!
A man is walking down his street and sees a friend sitting in his front yard all alone, looking bummed.
“What’s the matter with you?” he asks.
The friend says, “I screwed up on one of those questions wives ask, and now I am so deep in the doghouse, I’ll never get out.”
“What question?” the first guy asks.
She asked me, “When I’m old, fat, and ugly, will you still love me?”
“Heck, that’s easy," the first guy replied. "You just tell her, 'Of course you will.'”
“Yeah,” says the friend, “that’s what I meant to say. But what came out was ‘Of course I do.’”
Senior of the Month
Born in Jackson and raised in Memphis, TN, Cindy graduated from Auburn University and also has lived in Birmingham, Nashville, and Denver until her move to Wake Forest, NC, over 18 years ago. She is both the proud wife of an award-winning retired news photojournalist, Lou Davis (29 years & counting) and blessed mother of 3 grown children: a Dr. of Physical Therapy, a Preacher in Training, and a 2nd Lt. Army National Guardsman.
Cindy has a background in church ministry and teaching high school (before kids) and preschool (after kids). She also has worked a variety of jobs from retail sales & visual merchandising for 13 years in historic downtown Wake Forest to her current role as Assistant Manager at The Crossings at Heritage Senior Apartment Community since 2018. Cindy admits that she didn’t find the job at The Crossings-it sort of found her. In addition to her role in leasing and qualifying residents, she wears many hats, including event planning, decorating, social media and senior networking. She and the Community Manager, Margaret, wish to keep their residents as independent as possible for as long as possible, fully aware of all resources available to them. Mostly, Cindy loves reminding seniors how truly valuable and special they, their wisdom, example, faith, stories, and contributions are to our world.
A member of Richland Creek Community Church, she has enjoyed involvement in women’s bible studies, teaching, and volunteering since 2004. If asked, she would say Christ is her ultimate Source of hope, strength, and joy- the reason she desires to love and serve her family, church, workplace and community well.

Adopt A Grandparent
Perhaps you are a senior and have no family or no family in the area. Or your family is very busy and you do not have a lot of communication with them. Perhaps you have never been a grandparent. Perhaps you feel lonely, even depressed. This program might be for you!
Perhaps you are a single person or a family that would like to “adopt” a senior. Maybe you no longer have grandparents or they are far away. How rewarding it would be to brighten up the day of a senior! This program might be for you!
Monthly events are also held for residents at Cadence and Crossings in Wake Forest, Gardens in Wakefield, and Grande in Rolesville.
If you would like to share with seniors, please contact us. We are looking for speakers, door prizes and entertainment.
