Devoted But Dateless

Nov 30th 2012 new

Devoted but dateless what is everyone planning to do keep there mind off having a significant other this Christmas Season ?

Nov 30th 2012 new

Oh, but we DO have a significant other, and keeping your mind on that very significant other is generally powerful enough to override any self pity that might arise. I, of course, mean being with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Maybe it's not the same as being with a physical person, but they are the best listeners of all, and they really care about you. Keep the faith! Have patience.

I agree with you Duane 100% that we do have a significant other but we are all human and in that humaness we stilll feel emotions and have to deal with them.

One way to help one through this difficullt season is to pray, especialy before the Blessed Sacrament. Another is get out of one self by volunteering, there are so many places that need help, especially with all the cut back. Also being around children. Babysit for a friend or a child, niece, nephew's chlden and let them to go out and do what they need to do or just to have alone time. Allow them to share themselves with you and vice vera. Take them out and do something fun and you will enjoy yourself too. The more we focus on ourselves the more our emotions grow. The more we get off our selves and share ourselves the more we feel needed and wanted and it helps the holiday's a little more cheerful.

I'm going to every gathering I can squeeze into my calendar. You can't ponder your woes when your drinking egg nog, munching cookies, and laughing at white elephant gift exchanges! I'm also going to immerse myself in all the wonderful advent scriptures. It's all about hope!

heart Organizing our Advent prayers, helping my grandson prepare a Jesse tree, coordinating schedules for his program rehearsals. That's just for my grandson. Final exams are next week and then the madness begins. Our church family stays very busy, there are food pantries that need volunteers and I am going to suggest the YAMS go caroling at the one or two of the local nursing homes so that I can tag along. They will bring beautiful voices and I will supply enthusiastic appreciation thereof.

You have a son. He is a scout and familiar with charity work. Get involved with his stuff. Chaperone a caroling outing. With God first in our lives, when we serve Him to the best of our ability, there simply is no time to feel bad about anything. If a bad mood hits, toss it up and tell Satan that you are way to busy to entertain those thoughts. heart

You are???? I avoid Christmas parties like the plague. If you must go, don't eat the dips UNLESS you want to spend December 25 sick as a dog.


Ho ho ho. Get through the holidays. It's the best anyone can hope for.
