How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    My mom learned the truth when I was about 7 however since I was deaf (and no sign language) the only 'truth' I grasped was PS 83:18. My father was an alcoholic, my mother had been in an orphanage until adopted later in life, (foster mother was very abusive) - so they really did not know how to care for a family. I was removed from the home because of sexual abuse by a family member – not my father- and for being an unruly child. I lived in a very uncaring foster home, then later a juvenile home until I turned 17. (had regained most of my hearing by age 13)

    While in the juvenile home I was 'forced' to go to church (was told it was state law while in that facility) though I vehemently resisted going. One day the minister asked if anyone had any questions. I raised my hand and asked him why did he keep calling Jesus - God. Did not PS 83:18 say that God's name was Jehovah? Well funny thing happened. The next Sunday I was told I no longer had to go to church.

    I got pregnant almost as soon as I was released from state custody, married an abusive young man. We studied with a couple from my mom's kingdom hall, quickly got baptized, but unfortunately the truth was not in our hearts. (we were both very troubled young people) I think what I really wanted at that time was a connection with my mom. I was soon disfellowship.

    About 18 years later Jehovah so lovingly helped me to become reinstated. I can not express in words how thankful I am that Jehovah would accept me back. That was about 22 years ago. I am also so thankful that my mom taught me about Jehovah when I was little, even though I was so limited due to my deafness.

  8. A good joke

    Not sure where to post, but wanted to share . . . Last Saturday was not a good day. I decided to go horseback riding, something I hadn't done in over 30 yrs. It turned out to be a big mistake! I got on the horse and started out slow but then we went a little faster, and before I knew it we were going as fast as the horse could go! I couldn't take the pace and fell off but caught my foot in the stirrup with the horse dragging me. It wouldn't stop. It just kept going around and around in a circle. Thank goodness the store manager at Wal-Mart came out and unplugged the machine! :-)
