Senior Volunteers “Paying it Forward”

Fidget quilt resized 325x215What happens when a dozen ladies and gentlemen get together to “Sit N Sew?” About five dozen Fidget Quilts, two large trash bags of neck rolls and two plastic sleeping bag mats – that’s what!! Participants at the Easton Area Lifestyle Campus (EALC) in Forks Township, part of the Northampton County Area Agency on Aging’s network of Senior Centers, have been hand-crafting items for their community members since November 2015.  It all started with an idea from Deb Mertz, Director of EALC.  “I wanted to find a fun and meaningful activity for the participants and came across a pattern for Fidget Quilts and it just grew from there”, said Deb.

From Creation to Cross

bible01 375x215I have a pretty neat job. I am the Peer-less Reviewer, or General Editor, for an online homeschool resource center. That means I review hundreds of lessons in every subject at every grade level. I get paid to do two of my favorite things: learn, and correct others’ mistakes. My penchant for critiquing prompted one pastor to jokingly say I had the “gift of discernment” (1 Corinthians 12:10). Next to theology, my favorite subject is astronomy. In reality, they are linked, as are all fields of study, because one’s understanding and application of any subject is governed by one’s view of God. I love that indescribable feeling of awe you get when you look at the moon and stars at night (unless that means you are an insomniac!). At work, I get to watch videos and read descriptions of the stars that were unimaginable decades ago.

We maintain our intelligence, but our brains change. We are less physically and mentally flexible, and we take more time to process information. Our memory changes as well, and it’s more difficult to remember names, places and other things as we age. So what are specific examples of normal, old-age forgetfulness?
