How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    My best friends Mom was studying. It made sense. My best friend and I started going to the meetings, and out in then door to door work. We were baptized the next year. Had no personal bible study. Have you any idea just how wonderful things are today, vs. what happened in the early 60's?
    But I do consider my self so blessed. So blessed....

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    My life in the truth, and all it entails. My husband, though not in the truth yet is a big part of my life. Plus, I love the outdoors, good hard work, and our dogs and cats. Outside, I am a dog person, inside, a cat person. We have 4 dogs, and 3 cats. One of those cats is mine. Batgirl. She is asleep right by me on the couch. I am hers, too.
  • My favorite books
    Of course, our theocratic literature. Beyond that, fiction, Clive Cussler. Not in depth literature. e. e. Cummings is one of my favorite poets. Not much time for that though.
  • My favorite music
    Eclectic. Late 40's and 50's country music. Mandy Patinkin is one of my most favorite singers. I pretty well enjoy music. In the new system, I will have a great singing voice, learn to play the violin, and go from there. Oh, Jeanette McDonald and Nelson Eddy.
  • My favorite movies
    Older musicals, Finding Nemo, Star Trek, Documentaries.
    Television. Doc Martin, Antique Roadshow, A movie, if I can find a decent one. Not much television.

    California Fires

    One can hope. I go back to what someone said. “The dirt is so dry, it burns”. And, no, I do not believe raking the forest is a solution!
  2. Tv on in the background. I need to remind myself, keep the iPod charged, with me, and earphones, the same. 

    This I need and want as that music tries to invade my brain.

    How I long for the very last December 25th musical observance!

    Private firefighters

    I mentioned this to my husband. It sort of surprised me. Private fire fighters. Then he reminded me of the crew that came to our property to burn. Twenty five people or so. All kinds of fire rigs. It was impressive and scary at the same time. I could not be here because my lungs do not take kindly to smoke. I don’t know how Sid got access to it, but there they were. He said they probably could be hired out. I guess in the old days,this was not unique. If you wanted a fire put out, you paid for it. Glad we have moved beyond that system. To me, firefighters are a special sort of people. Like ambulance operators and EMT’s. Altruistic. Not an easy life, but, there they are.
  4. Jehovah has been poked in the eye. Again. He’s letting them become hardened. Like Pharoah. And, you know what happened to Pharoah. I’ve heard of prayer lists. It’s getting so I neede one.
  5. We are a couple of hundred miles, or so. But we have smoke from it in the air. Not that bad, but, it is almost if you can smell it, you need masks. The good ones. The particles from this type of fire settle into the recesses of your lungs, and, from what I read, are like tiny, tiny pieces of glass. I fear down the road all those who endured the smoke, with no masks, will have a price to pay. I did. We have regular forest fires, not structure fires. One summer, I putted along, acting like I had wits. Smoke in the air. No mask. Then, I got pneumonia. In the summer time. It took a while to even get rid of it, now, my lungs are highly sensitized to smoke, of any kind. If you are where the smoke from this fire is, protect yourselves. It seems to not be that huge a problem. For most. I was visiting a friend in Redding during that fire. (With my mask) Elaine has a Chattering Lorrie. Exotic bird. It’s fecal matter had black in it. She was worried. I told her she needed a hepa filter for her house. The bird was highly sensitive. She got one. And, she and her daughter started to wear those masks.
  6. This California fire thing is almost too much to bear. It’s like when I feel happy, or good, I feel I don’t have that right. I tell myself that it all will be over soon. No more deaths from fires. My sister and my niece and nephew were killed in a house fire in 1972. This has left a mark on me, regarding fires. This is grim, but true. The kids were in a closet. Sue had thrown a chair through the window to get some oxygen? Or escape. I don’t know. But, this I do know. They died instantly. And, not from being burned up. Sue had a smudge on her face. Not the kids. They died when the oxygen burst into flames. Thats the thing I tell myself. They died quickly. This I still tell myself about those who have died in this Catastrophe. The ones who died, died quickly. My heart just hurts. We keep posting pictures of loved ones, still missing. Desperate family. And, it is taking forensic specialists to even identify remains as human. As I have said before, if it weren’t for Jehovah...I just couldn’t take it. But, we hang on. Just for a little while longer.

    We live in an area where, in the summertime, the threat of fire is a constant worry. Living on a mountainside...you know the direction fire goes. More then once those borate bombers have been so close overhead, that if we were outside, we could have seen the pilot. We have hepa filters that are just a part of our life in the summer. I cannot breathe any smoke. And, we have had no fire insurance. A reservation thing. Fire hydrants are alien here-abouts. We found out if we get help from tribal housing, (applied for and got a, “Toyostove”. Kerosene heater.) Anyway, we proceeded to apply for fire insurance. Not an easy process. Then, off went the documentation. Um, sorry they said, there is a moratorium on issuing policies in California. Okay. We waited. They got back to us. It was a go. We were going to fax the signed policy last Thursday. Then, we decided to go ahead and take care of it on Friday, when we were in town. Then, those horrible fires happened. That fire started on Thursday, at 6:30 am. We were afraid we were under moratorium again. When they took our money, we were grateful. But, we have plans on getting our pets out. It sickens me. I could say more about fires, but I will say, that is a fear that Jehovah’s Kingdom will remove from my heart, and, yes, I will be eternally grateful. At least until some memories are removed from my DNA.

    Though I’m not close to this fire, it hits close to home. The news on social media is horrendous. I’m so tired of poor pets that have been injured, and need to get to their owners. Then there is the owners posting pictures of their pets, wanting them back. This fire was so dangerous if you hesitated to get pets, it could have cost you your life. It is so incredibly sad. Almost beyond hurt. To numb. Friends in this area are taking what they can over there to help out. I have a good friend in Chico. We just can pray. For them, and the Kingdom. This reminds me of the time during the Vietnam war. With dinner, you were served up news of war and death. The news. I just got back from the assembly. I think if it weren’t for Jehovah...I’d lose my mind.

    I heard Chico is two thirds surrounded, and is being evacuated. Horrible. Just horrible.

    I’m hearing some friends are stuck in a car, trying to get out, and helicopters are dumping water on them. Prayers, please. Chico Fire!

    Well, this go round, anyway. But, somehow, one day, it will truly be over!

    Reminds me of what a CO said. We come upon an older lady, drinking her tea, just finished her bible reading for the day. Now, here we are. Do we pull out the, “silver sword”, and just slash her heart felt beliefs, just like that? No, we are gentle, and can get to the meat of the matter after trust and confidence is built up regarding how we present the truth. Not slash and burn. But, gentleness and patience.

    It’s over. Teehee!
