saturdays


saturday, a fun day...not so much lately.

i usually go to a morning AA meeting at the club, and play spades afterwards, then I try to see if the grandson is around to play a while. he wasn't today, he went to geneva to see the other family. i usually find someplace outside to have lunch, today (as with most saturdays) it was a combo at romas', on the bench outside.

i read a chapter or so in don winslow's the death and live of bobby Z, and enjoyed it pretty much. that is about it today, i am home and the TV is on (again). i remember that i used to think of grandma hanging around all day watching tv. i am no better lately. i guess i have my roku, and that offers a few more choices...and my cable and dvr, offerering even more...but it is still the same old crap.

i have been trying to write lately...i figure that it is a better way to waste away my days than just sitting in front of the tube(s). but i am limited by what i can think of to write down. it helps to do ANYTHING a little more productive, but i am not fooling anyone, i am totally bored. i joke a lot in chat saying that i am retarded, and then suddenly replacing it with retired, saying i get confused because they are so much the same. retardedment stinks.

there just HAS to be more to life than this. please god, fill my emptiness with some kind of purpose. tomorrow is church and laundry day.

Hi Rocky.

Read above and couldn't help thinking of youyour former Post should i stay or should i go :

"the sermon at my church today was piped in via video and it was a big push for our overseas missions to the 10/40 window of the unreached. it actually used that song line should I stay or should I go now, by the clash, and used Isaiah 6 where god asks "who shall I send?" and Isiah answers "send me." the whole message was to like pray seriously for which we should do, that if we were to stay then pray for what we should do here.

this is something that has been heavy on my heart for a long time. I finished seminary with an MDiv and am not really doing much with what I have learned. I tried to open a church, and that didn't work out for a number of reasons, and now I am not doing much at all. I tried to join a local ministry that is doing outreach to aliens here, but I went through a lot of changes to apply, and have not gotten much of a response from them. they just send me advertisements to come to their outreaches in emails.

I have seriously considered going on a missions trip, but my health would not allow it. I am on meds that are expensive and a problem to obtain, and I need to go to a neurologist and have tests regularly. I would have real problems in a 3rd world situation, but I am doing fine here. so I am stuck staying here, but I am not sure what I should do here. I have been a part of a few small group missions at my church, and I feel like I am needed in them, but I feel I could be doing more.

what more can I do god? "

Blessings
