  1. When I was in high school, my fellow students thought I was stuck up. Truth be told, I was painfully shy!
  2. We had a wonderful illustration for why Jehovah did not eliminate Satan and Adam and Eve the day they sinned. Two men owned race horses. Bob saiys 'my horse is faster than your horse.' Jim says, 'my horse is faster than your horse.' They exchanged arguments about the horses for a while Then Jim whipped out a gun and shot Bob's horse, then says, 'my horse is faster than your horse.' But did that prove anything? Of course not. An other good one is, Jehovah placed a tree in a vacant area. The tree represented true religion. Satan cannot touch or alter Jehovah's tree, but he planted a million trees all around Jehovah's tree. That makes it very difficult to find Jehovah's tree, although it it still there, where it always was. If we search for the truth, we will find it.
  3. From what I have surmised from all the comments about this situation, the Russian government refuses to carry out the rulings from the European Court. So it doesn't help our dear brothers ans sisters who are affected. Jehovah's Day will come right on time to destroy all his enemies once and for all time. Praise Jehovah!

    Woman Marries Her Mother

    Frank and I often laugh about 'what would Mom(deceased since 2002) think about.........whatever is making headlines this day!
  5. We have had a few weak quakes in Northern Colorado since the fracking started. Brings to mind another prophecy, Rev. 11:18 "God will bring to ruin those ruining the earth." We know we are very near the end of this system. All the prophecies together tell us that all we are waiting on is Jehovah's command and the fall of Babylon the great.
  6. I love the ' Boston' accent. One of our recent COs was a long time removed from there, but once in a while the old habits sneaked in. I do have a bit of a problem grasping the Deep South, although I love to hear it. My Dad was from the Brownsville, TX area but raised in the panhandle. He never lost his accent or odd choices of Spanish words that were prevalent in his circle. I do try to guess the area from which people come, based on their accent. Working in truck stop restaurants was a treat because of the vast distances covered by the drivers. I am sure we will all speak the same language in the New World, but I suspect we will retain our own Old World languages because they are so interesting.
  7. Even though my children are adults, my great grand children are in this group that needs help with this issue. Children, especially very young, but in school need parental clarification. They are often too young to understand fully our neutrality. They often are cowed by teachers and ridiculed by other students. If the parents have paved the way and impressed upon the child that he must inform the parent of any opposition, then he will have a much easier time. The school years are very hard for our youngsters. Help them! It is your duty as a parent. Deuteronomy 6:4-9 is repeated in Ephesians 6:4. It is even more important for us now, as we are so near the GT.

    Shooter in Las Vegas

    We in this city have had success in answering the opinion that we are unpatriotic for not standing to honor the flag or pledge. We counter with the statement that we are the most patriotic people in the world. We respect the laws of the country in which we live..we pay our taxes, obey traffic laws,etc...But we are envoys from another government and have the right to obey our government first, when it conflicts with our residence laws. This often leaves the complainers shaking their heads in total confusion, but it does tend to put out the fire of contention in those who oppose our beliefs and rights.

    Shooter in Las Vegas

    We in Colorado experienced a somewhat similar tragedy in 2013 when we were flooded. Many were wandering around asking what we had done to deserve such punishment from God, but most were not interested in the answers that we could give them. In any disaster, the world attributes it to God. One of the areas that concerns me is that the authorities are listing this as the worst mass shooting in history. What idiot is planning to cause a worse disaster just to be known as the new record-holder of mass destruction?
  10. At our meeting today, the letter which was read indicated (to me, at least) that the song by JW singers will be available, and so will the sheet music, for download after September 27.
  11. We are all aware of the catastrophic events that have been happening of late. Could it be that Satan knows more than we do about the beginning of the Tribulation? He sure was quick to distract humans just before the installation of the Kingdom in 1914. We all know that this system is very difficult for all of us and those of us who were born by accident in the so-called free countries cannot imagine the horrors that our dear friends in other countries endure. Our recent Convention and Assemblies really emphasized the need to prepare ourselves spiritually. Our faith will carry us through, so we must work hard now to build our faith and keep praying that Jehovah approves of our efforts. I have watched the 'Hezekiah" video several times lately. The 'making' of that video is spectacular, but the video certainly makes the point that we need to prepare for the event as well as we can, then look to Jehovah to take care of us. Just my personal opinion. I'm sure others have their own.
  12. What a moving video! Jehovah is really preparing us, in every aspect, to survive whatever experiences lie ahead. We get information to strengthen our faith, our understanding, and even our physical preparation for the immediate future. The #4 Awake! even helps us prepare our Gobags. This video helps us to appreciate Jesus' personal commitment to Jehovah, leaving a pattern for us.
  13. Luke 21:28 "But as these things start to occur, stand up straight and lift up your heads, because your deliverance is getting near." This declaration was certainly given, loud and clear, at the Regional Convention. The world of mankind is shaking with fright, but Jehovah's people are very excited, even while enduring persecution. We all know that our present freedom can change overnight and we must build our faith while we can. Even in the United States we are experiencing changing attitudes from our neighbors. My DF daughters are now referring to the 'cult' that I belong to. Frank and I are also experiencing hostility from our non-JW relatives. We recently studied about the opposition and outright persecution in the US during both world wars in the Kingdom book. We are so close to the tribulation that we need to concentrate all our efforts on clinging to Jehovah and not let up our guard. We also need to be aware of the subtle attacks that Satan and his minions can ply is with.
  14. We had videos in the 2015 and '16 conventions about how quickly our freedom can evaporate. We really need to come to grips mentally with this possibility and prepare physically. The GB has been stressing that we need to seriously consider how quickly this can happen and have a family and congregation plan of action. Our congregation has updated our medical directives and our current addresses, phone numbers and our emergency contacts both locally and out-of-state. It will help us to react logically when/if we have an emergency. We were totally unprepared in 2013 when we had a major flood. Most people in our town were unaware that there was a problem but two mobile home parks were hit with a 20 foot wall of water. There were 5 families in our congregation who lost everything. We counted it as dress rehearsal for the GT. Our gobags are ready this time. We are much more aware of the suffering of our dear families world wide because we have electronic devices to inform us. For most of us, all we can do is pray for them and we certainly do.
