Lorrie, I am so sorry to hear the video study at the church failed. Sometimes the crowds/attendance drops off for the summer. Perhaps you can check on-line for any Jeff Cavin's Bible Studies in your diocese. His programs are quite popular and do draw a crowd. Do you ever try Eucharistic Adoration? That is where I find my peace....it's when I have a little talk with Jesus about all that is on my mind. He does wonders in leading me in the right direction.....whether through the people he sends in my path, music, prayer groups, other inspirations of what I need to do to improve my life. I will keep you in my prayers that Jesus comes to your rescue soon with growing glimmers of happiness. Definitely pursue the cupcake idea! That sounds like a fun and playful outlet. Then you will need to determine who you will give your precious artwork to....whether it be a homeless shelter, a nursing home, a local convent, rectory, your neighbors or somewhere where the people will be thrilled to try your new found culinary talent. I wish you lived near me. I would love to take the class with you.
I too am lonely. It is no fun that's for sure. Take care and God bless you, Lorrie!
Well I am getting involved in a different church after the issues I had with my home parish, at least until this priest is gone. I haven't made any decisions about whether or not to come back after the 27th of June. But getting into this divorce support group has helped tremendously. But I came 1/2 way through and it's ending after another 2 weeks. I hear it starts up again in the fall so I wlll sign up and do another 10 week course so I can get the whole thing. It will be all new people so I guess I will see what happens. I'm hanging in there.
