    An answer when mild...

    This experience is from the wife of a recently reactivated brother.. He's now an Ms here; his wife, from a charismatic religious background, is currently studying and an unbaptised publisher. She's at work.. Conversation with a male co-worker, comes up about JWs. Vehemently blurts out. I hate them! She says bravely, that she's studying with them. Now I hate you! , he says. How can you say a moment ago you like me and now Hate me? What have Jehovahs witnesses ever done to you that makes you feel like that? He had no answer. After a pregnant pause... He just said.. OK, what's it all about then? She proceeded to tell him what she's learning. She defends the truth at any opportunity! I'm amazed at her. She's fearless!

    Well it happened

    When you turn 707 upside down, it says "LOL" - which sums up how I feel about anyone who claims we're a cult or has strange beliefs

    Flog It!

    In the UK the BBC have a programme called Flog It! Nothing to do with flagellation nor dead horses, but in English the word "flog" can also mean "sell". The programme asks people to bring items they think may be antique and/valuable to be assessed with the thought that they may be selected to be sold at auction - or "flogged". The venues chosen are often stately homes etc and today it was Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire. In one of the rooms, the Dorothy Davenport room, was a four-poster bed, where Dorothy had embroidered a pelmet, a headboard cover and a throw, between 1610 and 1614. The headboard cover had an interesting depiction of Adam and Eve in the garden. Here is a screenshot.

Had he simply accepted his wrongdoing, repented, and remained humble, it would have never went this far. On a positive note, the issue of us determining our membership is settled.

    How often that is true. It's not until a person stares persecution and threats right in the face that he draws close to Jehovah so deeply to seek refuge. For that reason he may feel it's the first time he has ever really been a Christian. That being said: I am probably not a Christian... yet. I feel for you in your surroundings, Victoria. But your comment has made me wonder about my own precarious situation, hoping I will react the same way as you when I am faced with circumstances like that. You have no idea how much your example inspires me. Thank you.

    It's umbelievable! I got used to getting bad news. Such a great news surprised me. Why did they let him go? What next? BTW I saw the news in the Internet, I don't know any details.

    The failed abortion survivor whose mum thought she was dead When Melissa Ohden was 14 she learned a shocking secret - her mother had tried to abort her. She was saved by a nurse who heard her crying as she lay among medical waste at a US hospital. This is the story of her survival, and of the mother who thought she was dead. https://www.bbc.com/news/health-44357373

    Neighbor text me, said little bear was on his way over. He was eating some sunflower seeds I had out for the crows, digging them out of the grass. Then he sat on his rump, reached over with his front arm and scratched his bum!!! I had to fight from busting out laughing. The caution tape is so he can see my fencing and not run into it again! Bears have dented it several times.

    “We become what we think about”. I just came across this quote. It was referring to becoming successful entrepreneurs. But, I love it for us! True, we can’t actively serve Jehovah as much as we’d like, but where is our mind and heart during those, “down” times? And, we have so many wonderful things to think about. And give thanks to Jehovah for. I woke up this morning!

    JW Broadcasting for June 2018

    Okay, here's the MP3 files of the June 2018 Broadcast. Had to split it into three seperate files. Always a trade off between file size and sound quality. Tried to keep the quality reasonable for listening to the talks but reduced the sound to mono (okay for voice).JWB - June 2018 - 1.mp3 Here's number One:

    It seems to me the main thing he was worried about was losing money. He was a realtor and most of his clients were witnesses. Hmm... he may need to start advertising to the rest if the world as he is now part of it.
