  1. I started watching this series on Netflix, so far I'm midway through season 1, episode 5 or 6. So far things seem to be pretty wholesome and I've been enjoying it. Set in the early 1900's, a teacher from an affluent family decides to embark on a journey to teach in a mining town called Coal Valley. There is an interaction that begins in the first episode which makes the show both funny, awkwardly romantic and so on. It's a Canadian film series and so far so good.
  2. Sad day today, husband got word that they were officially terminating him.  Then at 3 pm my Totoro's back legs gave out, they figured it was a bloodclot, he was in excruciating pain and he had to be euthanized.  Kids are home sick, today has just been ugly.

      I'm sad for you and your family. When it rains, it pours sometimes. Day by day, sister. I'm just sorry for it piling in on you....

      I am so sorry for your losses :( Hugs to you and yours.

  3. My husband came to bed with these things in mind tonight. He came to bed around 1 a.m. and woke me, now I can't sleep. He spoke of this attack, it obviously bothered him. He also told me about the plane being shot down, and a boxer who passed away after a match in our city. I think Greg explained this the best, we are groaning and sighing. It hurt my heart too, its why I got up. I think of the families who were just going about their daily worship routine. While they do not share our faith, I think to myself, how would I feel if some lunatic started mowing down people in the kingdom hall parking lot? This is what it basically equates to. Then I examined my feelings and asked, even though they don't share my faith, do I still care about them as much as I should any human? The religion of Islam has caused many to begin to hate Muslims, and its a vicious circle. I wanted to make sure my thinking wasn't infected thus. Then my mind went to the persecution of our brothers and sisters in Russia, North Korea, Eritrea and so forth and even now I need to go back to Jehovah and lay this load on his shoulders because its a horrible thing to have to contend with and it makes me cry. Groaning indeed.
  4. I often think the same thing, but hackers or friends of hackers will always try to break the system and manipulate it for their own 'fun' or enjoyment.
  5. Mowed 3.14 km of my lawn today.  Not even close to being done.  Psychology Today tells me it's a great stress reliever.   Took me 58 minutes so far, it's pretty thick.  As I cut I found myself asking why on earth my husband who has been off work for 2 months hasn't done it.  I think psychology today is wrong, I just feel really peeved now.  Maybe I should keep cutting.  I feel like setting his train set on fire.

      I'd love a small goat, have all kinds of Oregon grape and gorse. :angry:

      Goats would do the trick, better yet a ATV with a Bush hog on the back!

      Maybe 'have' isn't the right word, perhaps borrow or rent is better.

  6. I'd be more worried about the Presidents who couldn't keep it in their pants.... lol, controlling another is one thing, controlling yourself is a whole other.
  7. You missed national Sharon day. I felt it should be tit for tat. Turtle.
  8. My Dad is having emergency surgery for a possible hole in bowel.  Im strangely numb.  In shock I think.

      How is your dad?  Hope he is ok.

      Glad to hear everything is okay, Sharon. Sorry I didn't see this earlier!

      Investigate a little about that evil, and it's uncomfortable, I can not imagine how your dad is at the moment .

      You and your parents need support in this moment, I hope that the elders, and close friends of your congregación are side a side in this dificult time


      Tight hold

  9. My new favorites are many that deal with the anointed and 'all sorts of people can become God's friend' I love the phrase, it's the heart and not the face... I once commented earlier (about 15 years ago) that they needed to revamp the song book because there were very few of them that touched my heart....now, there is hardly a one that does not. I am so appreciative of these beautiful arrangements.
  10. It was 75, 110 and 134... The phrase in 134 - “Jehovah our God, how well you have done! All things are new by the rule of your Son. The fullness of our heart overflows in our song; All glory and honor and praise to you belong It makes my voice catch and me tear up. I don't know why. Song 110 - God's Wondrous Works I would hold my grandson and bawl my eyes out, thinking about how he may have never come to be if my daughter had gone through with her initial thoughts. The whole song is a reflection of how I feel about praising Jehovah. and last but not least song 75 - our reasons for joy The joy in our heart is well-founded, With roots reaching deep in God’s Word. We daily partake of its teachings; Faith follows the things we have heard. Our causes for joy are deep-seated, Like embers that burn in our hearts. Though troubles and trials beset us, Endurance Jehovah imparts. If you meditated on these words, we daily partake of its teachings, faith follows the things we have heard....you would see the absolute accuracy of them. Faith comes in part from daily partaking the deep riches of God's Word.
  11. There's also another thread here called higher education....somewhere.
  12. Dove, because I asked for one. We were asked to send letters, but we were allowed to send them any way we liked. I chose to send mine by courier because I am a government worker in my country and their structure of government is similar. The Ministry of Justice here would be required to acknowledge the receipt of such mail if the individual asks for it. They couldn't just trash it and not acknowledge. It would have to be looked at and signed for by someone. Additionally, because of how it was sent they may have to keep it in a pile to be read by its intended recipient.
  13. My husband made an insightful comment as to why he thought in the outset that we were being targeted in Russia in particular. We know it's Satan, however he commented that by banning us is the surest way to be able to ban other religions who claim to be peaceful. They know us, they know we are NOT extremists, nor are there any sects of ours which are. They know we wont be bombing anyone. Yet, by imposing these bans they can say....here is oh law, and now they can freely oppose and target Muslims as well. Which he believes was their whole intent anyhow. Additionally, he said that dilution of religion in a country can lead to a dilution in identity. When we think of the Russian people, their culture includes their religion of he Orthodox church. By crushing smaller sects Russia maintains her rich history of who they are as a people. He says this isn't even about us, but about all these things that Russians take pride in. I agree with him.
  14. I understand this, I often love doing the outside weeding and plant care. It would be upsetting to watch it die due to neglect.
