The Pioneer Library System and Science Museum Oklahoma continue their summer of virtual activities for families with multiple offerings in the coming weeks.
Hello Newcastle Seniors! I hope everyone is having a fine week so far. I ate lunch at the Senior Center Monday, and I must say it was so relaxing to be out and amongst good friends. We have been open for several weeks and are still practicing social distancing with four at a table. It seems to be fine with everyone. Our attendance is kinda down but it increases every day. That horrid virus is still out there and that is keeping a lot of people remaining at home. It is definitely something to be aware of and fear. So many of our seniors live alone and come to the center every day. They depend on it for their health because the meals are very well balanced and they depend on it for their mental health. Getting together every day is very good for a limited social life.
Aristotle once said, “To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.” In other words, unless you isolate yourself in the middle of the Sahara Desert, you are probably going to face some sort of criticism in this life. The days we are living in are tense and divisive. It seems that even those who are attempting to help get criticized for the help they offer. Many open their mouths all the time, and some have chosen not to open their mouths at all. What are we to do? This world needs help, truth, love, and hope. This is where Christians must step up and lead.
Hello Newcastle Seniors! This has been one glorious loud celebration for America’s Independence Day. We are happy to announce that America is fully awake and aware of the freedoms we have here in this land of the free because of the brave. Let us never forget what it cost so many for us to have those freedoms. There were more fire works Saturday night than we have ever seen before. They were coming from every direction, it was beautiful! I love America and I love Newcastle, Oklahoma!
We are facing overwhelming circumstances in our world right now. Every day we wake up, it is like we are climbing a new Mt. Everest. We are seeing a rise in COVID-19, political unrest, economic turmoil, moral compromise, injustice, racism, rioting, and many other kinds of civil unrest. It is also a Presidential election year, and opinions are flying high. What are we to do? How do we handle such adversity? How do we conquer what appears to be an impossible giant?
