  1. Oh, what a waste! I'm crying as I bite into another Hershey's Nugget! I like the new Richard. How many cats are in your herd?
  2. Just another of Satan's signs and wonders to distract and mislead us. Ho hum.
  3. What disturbs me is that many of Jehovah's people are getting tired. Satan certainly works to distract us, but now is not the time to give out.
  4. The Assembly Hall in San Antonio, Texas has a painting on the stage back that is done so skilfully that it looks three-dimensional. I don't have a picture because I moved back to Colorado in 2010. Check it out if you have the opportunity!
  5. I did my part last night, the third return. The brother and I discussed my counsel point, then we both said 'good bye' to the BE book. Not good bye forever, of course, because we will still use it extensively. It offers so much for those who are beyond the milk of God's word. It is a treasure that will never be out of step with the Chariot. The new book will stay with the simplified instructions that we need as this system drags to its death. The BE will always be there to sharpen our skills.
  6. Again, Carlos has restored reason to an explosive situation. If Putin had any inclination to do something about our brothers and sisters and their holdings, he would have done it. I see this as another ploy of Satan's to distract us. I see so much evidence that we are allowing ourselves to tire out. We must not allow that to happen! At Luke 21:28 Jesus urged us to recognize the signs and lift our heads up, but he did not tell us to slack off in our work. He encouraged us to work even harder, to save as many as possible. We can't be sleeping now.
  7. I agree, Richard! No time limit on any form of chocolate!
  8. Aren't we privileged to have access to our dear brothers who work so hard to keep us within the Chariot? I watch so many of these short talks so frequently because they help me to shut out the world and keep my mind on spiritual things. I really appreciate that we are getting to know the GB and their helpers on a personal level. They have become real to us. Charlotte, go to jw.org , Programs and Events, then Morning Worship.There is a very long list of talks of about 10 minutes each.
  9. I can accept that 100% is not really possible. Perhaps some of the participants were thinking more on present problems and personal doubts and conditions. Burt, you have made a good point also. I think some of the participants may be apostates, too. Anything that Satan has access to will be tainted.
  10. I am surprised that Jehovah's Witnesses rank only 89%. We, alone, understand our reasons for gratitude. We understand what the ransom means for our present and future. We are personally acquainted with Jehovah and He personally knows us. Why would we not rank 100%?
  11. It seems that the last eight visits of our CO were different brothers. One couple had to retire because of his age. The next had a wife with cancer. The next was a young couple who were sent back to New York for further training and reassignment. Then his inlaw died and we had two fill-ins and now a new one who hopes to last for three years! So do we!
  12. John, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! This has needed to be mentioned in our family for a long time. We get enough criticism from Satan's world. Our circle needs to encourage each other, remembering that some of us do not have the opportunity for a decent education. Some of us do not have the capacity to learn as well as some others. Jehovah sees our efforts and our potential . Should not we have the mind of Christ and overlook our dear brothers' and sisters' imperfections? If we are nitpicking now, it will certainly divide us during the GT. Abraham Lincoln took notice of Mark 3:24 in connection with the American Civil War; " If a kingdom becomes divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand." W e have a tremendous bank of information about Jehovah's people suffering intense persecution. One of the most important tools for them, after Jehovah's holy spirit, was the brotherhood. We need to practice now, how to appreciate our dear friends. We may have to die for someone with whom we do not get along. What a tragedy that could be, to lose our life, our approval from Jehovah, because we did not like a fellow believer.

    No-Shave November

    No matter what charity is involved, the outcome is redundant.The only cure is God's Kingdom.
  14. Abraham Lincoln was quick to recognize that fact in connection with the United States Civil war. Any country that has experienced a civil was must see the wisdom in avoiding, or at least cutting short, any such conflict.
  15. At least Jehovah has alerted us to the probability that His people will suffer these same attacks. Congregations around the world have been preparing for such activity as this system ends. It seems to me that the churches in which these things have happened were blindsided, not expecting churches to be targeted. We, of course, pray for those who are suffering from Satan's system and try to teach them something better. We also pray that we individually will not experience anything like this, although we are outlawed in many countries and our brothers and sisters are suffering from outright persecution. Ec. 9:11 tells us that we are all subject to unforeseen events. What ever happens, we know that Jehovah will resurrect us if that becomes necessary. Our talk today was about the steps to have our prayers answered. the first one was Acts 2:1 We must call on the name of Jehovah, then John 14:6 approach to Jehovah only through Jesus, then perseverance, then faith. We have really been made aware of the need to love each other while studying the book of John. So we all should be ready to do whatever is necessary to protect our own.
