Pocketful of Dreams

Meditations for Older People

by Helen M. Roberts

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Pocketful of Dreams is a wonderful collection of 39 inspirational meditations, for readers of all ages but particularly suited for older people. Included are seasonal meditations, and each meditation concludes with a Prayer. All are thought provoking.
This inspirational book is intended for readers of any age, but particularly suited to older people. It is written to encourage those who have reached the later years of life, whether rich or poor, to live life, and live fully. Each of us have a need to clarify what a full life means. To some the goal may seem to be restless activity - rush, rush, rush from one exciting (or perhaps boring) activity to another. This may be due to a desire to seem as young and active as one’s children or grandchildren, an unwillingness to face the reality of one’s years. In other groups the opposite may be true. The older person may feel he has always worked hard and now is going to really rest and let the rest of the world continue without him. This attitude leads to equal dissatisfaction. What then is the solution? Are we meant to drift aimlessly, snatching at every advertised key to our problem? Or are we meant to just sit in the sun and gradually rust and disintegrate until inertia completes our death? For a few weeks or months let us share our problems, our thoughts, our challenges. What conclusions can we look for? How can we enjoy an Abundant Life?
About the author
Helen M. Roberts was a remarkable woman. A proud mother of four, a prolific author and accomplished photographer, she began her writing career publishing many children's stories and plays, as well as articles for the Peninsula Life Magazine. Helen authored many religious works including meditations, novels, and prayers, as well as a widely published 7 volume series of children's stories based on the California Missions entitled 'Mission Tales'. She spent seventeen of her senior years as a literacy advocate in Africa teaching reading, writing and health to illiterate African adults, first in the native Swahili, and later in English. During her years in Africa, she wrote a biography of Dr. Frank C. Laubach (widely known as the Apostle of Literacy) entitled 'Champion of the Silent Billion'. A peek into her fascinating life is provided at the end of this book.
