Daily Living Made Easier

This grandfather heard the tough news for seniors but is trusting in God and His encouraging Bible versesWe hear an awful lot of bad news about the internet’s woes, don’t we?Β From scammers to spammers to trackers to hackers to haters. Very scary for many a senior citizen and baby boomer, isn’t it! But guess what! There are even more POSITIVE news stories about the internet – including for seniors and boomers – and I wanted to share some of them with you on this sweet Blue Monday. Why is it blue? Because that’s the name of a fun meme and where our story begins.

More great internet blessings abound at places like Twitter - Facebook - and the new Google+ - with opportunities to pray and be prayed forBlue Monday is a weekly meme centered around all things BLUE and it was created by Smiling Sally. Just like with Pink Saturday, with sweet pinks, and Rednesday, with cheerful reds, those who participate in Blue Monday post about something BLUE. It’s quite fun and, while I haven’t posted at it before, I do often pop over to visit and enjoy it. During one of those visits, I was sad to discover that Sally is in the hospital. She went in for a simple operation that turned complicated, has spent time in the ICU, and now, happily, is doing better. I know all this because of her sweet grandchildren who are keeping the site updated with information about her. And based on all the comments, I’d say there are plenty of others who are happy as well. Her blog – and her life – has touched the hearts of many of us.


Encouraging Bible verses remind the Sandwich Generation granny nanny and her grandkids that we must do all IN CHRIST - and I love sharing this Good news on the internetWord-Filled Wednesday and Spiritual Sunday are two more weekly gatherings of like-minded writers and readers who love to share our love for God. Today, while visiting Internet Cafe Devotions, the host for Word-Filled Wednesday, I discovered another fellow blogger whose husband had to go back to the hospital late at night. She hadn’t had a chance to write or make many calls, but thanks to the blessings of the internet, she already had one friend praying for her, then another – me, plus I suspect many others who just hadn’t commented about it. For that matter, I’ve been praying for months, now, for a different online friend whose husband is very ill with cancer.

This patriotic red white and BLUE rooster clipart is cute for the whole year - including Blue MondayThese aren’t isolated cases, either. I’ve visited sites written by someone I know, who had a link to pray for someone I didn’t know, and I immediately stopped and prayed for them. What a blessing to be used by God to help someone I may never talk to, this side of heaven. It’s a special joy to this Sandwich Generation granny nanny as I stay extremely busy caring for elderly parents, babysitting grandchildren, and writing. This is a season of my life when I don’t have the option to be very involved in church ministry like I have in the past. But God can still use me in a fun and exciting way via the internet – in praying and in sharing His love through encouraging and comforting Bible verses.

When the Sandwich Generation issues are keeping you home a LOT like this cute bird house clipart shows - the internet can be a big blessing - positive and great senior citizen and baby boomer news stories for sureAnd He can use you as well! Isn’t that great! By your stopping by here, you’ve encouraged me. If you leave a comment, you encourage me EXTRA (LOVE your comments! πŸ™‚ ). If you pray for me, you’ve blessed me mightily and YES, I LOVE your prayers! I see God working wonderfully in and through you and me and what a gift that is! So I invite you to join with us in serious memes like Word-filled Wednesday and Spiritual Sunday, as well as fun and light-hearted memes like Pink Saturday and Blue Monday, not to mention the occasional blog party posts like White Christmas in July, Show Me Your Roosters, and the Ultimate Blog Party – for times of fellowship, encouraging Bible verses, prayer, and being used by God, even if the Sandwich Generation season of life is keeping you tied close to home! Now isn’t that GREAT senior and boomer news for all of us! πŸ™‚

And Sally, please know we appreciate you and your Blue Monday, are enjoying your grandkids’ positive news reports, and are praying for your speedy and joy-filled recovery!Β
