  1. Don't forget to check the expiry dates on food items before you purchase them. I was at the grocery store, looking at cooking oils and I found one bottle with the best before date for 2015 !!!! same bottle beside it has a date of 2018.
  2. I wasn't going to do this , but you forced it out of me, lol. Chocolate mug Cake 2 tablespoons flour 2 teaspoons of sugar (or to taste) 2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder ¼ teaspoon baking powder Pinch of salt 2 tablespoons milk (or substitute your favorite alternative) 1 tablespoon oil Optional: handful of mini chocolate chips or 1 tablespoon peanut butter, caramel, jam, nutella, almond butter, etc… In a mug or bowl works too, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt until no lumps remain. Stir in the milk and oil until smooth. Make sure you scrape your fork around the edges of the cup so you don’t get pockets of dry flour. Bake in microwave for 1 min 5 sec (give or take 5-10 seconds, my microwave is 1250 watts just for comparison, and I am at sea level)
  3. I just know that a few months down the road , some one will point to me , blame me for making them fat by just mentioning the idea. So I'm just going to apologize in advance ...... I'm sorry, please forgive me. I have been looking for literally years (well, fine, not years , but I stopped looking for a few years now and it has been years since I've made it again) for the best recipe for chocolate mug cake, and I think , I finally found a winner. BUT, I'm not going to post it yet... for safely,... as in my safety . But has anyone else found one that works taste-tastic-ally great? Or should this post be deleted for the sake of peace and before I get banned?

  6. in the last days, the ridiculer will come with his ridicule proceeding according to his own desires
  7. Before I came on here,  I joined a few Facebook groups to help me with my issues. One on depression, one on  ADHD, and one for introverts.   Most of those groups have a policy of not talking about religion, politics and the such.  So many people are in a sad state. There's only so much encouragement and comfort we can give others  without directing them to God's word for comfort and hope.  Thank you for this forum brothers where we can have an interchange of encouraging words that build one another up.

      I, too, am so glad I found this website. I can't even count the number of times my "online" congregation has helped me just get through one trial or disaster after another. Some are big problems, some are small. But most are much smaller after a few words of encouragement. And, really, we can see each other's HEARTS here. That makes such a difference! Being able to put our problems in context, and help others to do the same is such a comfort.  And of course, I know you love Jehovah, so you are the brother or sister of my heart. All of us have a bond that the world just can't touch.

      I have grown spiritually as a result of this site, and feel closer to those here in some instances than some who I know face to face.  I've received enormous amounts of support and a kicking when necessary.  I hope you stay, I've appreciated your posts as well. 

  8. Another way to see this is , until the initial ban was lifted in the 1990's, we didn't know how many faithful ones were in Russia. So for the short period of time that the door was open, our faithful brothers and sisters prospered in the harvest work. For so many years we were not told so that they were protected and now we know that some 175,000 have come out of Russia. How happy Jehovah and Jesus are. Well done. As an earlier post mentioned, may their good example strengthen us to persevere and endure.
  9. The world is hearing very quickly about the ban. Just doing a search with a filter for the last two hours shows many of the major online news outlets are posting it.
  10. beautiful - the original songs -this one is- We won't forget you. I'm listening to them all and how encouraging and comforting they all are.
  11. Even here on this forum, we can appreciate Ps 4:4 be agitated, but do not sin. have your say in your heart, upon your bed and keep silent. 1 Peter 2:12 Maintain your conduct fine among the nations, so that when they accuse you of being wrongdoers, they may be eyewitnesses of your fine works and, as a result, glorify God in the day of his inspection.
  12. take courage my brother, When the Apostles were persecuted, they rejoiced, not because they were happy to being persecuted but for doing what was pleasing and right in Jehovah's eyes.
  13. remember what our year text is. it's so appropriate for this year. Trust in Jehovah and do what is good. What can we do to assist our brothers in this time of the end and in their time of need ?
  14. Many other religious organizations have been eager to see what the outcome of this court case . Jehovah's Witnesses, we, have been the canary in the coal mine , sort of to speak. I think Babylon the great will soon be quaking in her boots.
