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.

      Don't beat yourself, Bea. Jehovah appreciates that we do what we can. Maybe it's enough that you were there today to encourage others. Be sure to take a delicious dish next week and give several nutritious comments. :)

      Thanks, Carlos. It was basic stuff. Jehovah helped me to be an encouragement. But, it is not a good feeling. I did read it, but time and circumstances got away from me!

      Hang in there Bea it happens to all of us at one time or another.... this is a new weak new leaf turned over.....:wub:

  2. Your BOTTOM 10 Foodlist

    Short list. parsnips green olives calamari olives (?) strong, stinky cheese of any sort. Feta is the first that comes to my mind..
  3. Want to share my Prozac? No, I know. But, I’m as sick as a lot, and if I can’t find something natural, I will use pharmaceuticals. I’m just so leery. Like there is this thing that you vap your vitamins.
  4. Okay, I don’t know if I need prayers or sympathy! We have an ATV, side by side. (Like a golf cart) My husband uses it here on the property. Get wood, haul things. He was gone this week. I ran out of wood. Yes, me and the wheelbarrow managed. On a steep hill! 

    So, Sid is about to teach me how to drive it! I’ve rode with him, and I do not think it’s easy! And, yes, I can drive a standard!

      Give yourself time to learn it and get confident with it...and then later do loop dee loops and wheelies and race the dog etc...just kidding. Safety first.

      And, no clutch! Can’t figure that one out!

  5. Well, this is scary. My thought. They gently mainstream this type of, well, stuff. I suppose most things at one level have good in them. ( Jehovah created the stuff, for goodness sakes!) However, in this imperfect system, anything unknown, and with the power to effect, (affect?) our minds, I avoid like the plague. And thanks for your unique insight brother.
  6. Out in service with an elder today. We were discussing our new changes. He said a letter was to be read tomorrow at the meeting. More changes for our ministry. Exciting times, friends!

      What I do know is it has to do with, “nor more offers, and the word is discussions”!

      We didn't have a letter read what did it say?

  7. Regards from Venezuela

    Hard to think about, my dear brother. In my personal study regarding Daniel 20:19:20, Satan has this world and the possibility to appoint demon rulers. Invisible forces are behind the visible rulers of this nation. It is more evident in some countries then others at this time. My heart breaks for what Jehovah's people are going through in Venezuela. Yes, I love your attitude, Jehovah will do the unexpected. And, yes, I'm trying to cut down on unneeded spending to dig deeper in my pockets for our worldwide brotherhood. As I do, I know what is going on is temporary. And, yes, those prayers are primary. We do what we can, we love you all dear ones, and we pray to our dear Father...much Christian love coming your way...
  8. Bay Area on Fire

    One of the hugest physical blessings in the new system will not have to worry about fires, out of control. For me, anyway. I lost a sister and a niece and nephew in a house fire. It was a long time ago, but... We live on a hill, and the tribe just did a major burn below our house. It was a professional job. Twenty five people were here. Such relief. I. So grateful. But, this business in the Santa Rosa area. Terrifying. Just terrifying. And it is personal. We know our dear brothers and sisters have to had been effected. So many horrible things going on. Our prayers go out for them. Plus, just dig deeper in those pockets! And, continue to pray!
  9. I'm actually not involved, but I visited Canada and went to meetings there. I loved hearing our French language brothers speaking English. There are wonderful ways of expressing thoughts that just warmed my heart. Plus, it reminded me of our brotherhood being international. A delightful experience!
  10. And I thank you. I love picture words! Beautiful!
  11. It is true. My car has all the bells and whistles. More then once...at the same time, I have yet to figure most of it out. But, it's like you have to make up your one to pull over to text. (The car will read incoming ones!) or change cds.
  12. “calm before the storm,”

    It's a photo op, okay, folks? In reality, he's right, but I it will be to his regret. Armageddon is coming. Talk about a Storm!
  13. Adventure time! A sister and myself are gong to be night watchman, double shift, 10-7, at the Kingdom Hall build in Crescent City, on the coast. I have trouble sleeping...Maybe! But, whatever, it should be fun!

      We are here. In a room with bars across the windows. Doors, locked. Coffee on, and a full moon outside. And, good company!

      Did it! No more double shifts for us! It was 10-7. But, then, we had to drive 2 hours to get home. Our biggest danger was locking ourselves out of the security building. Double lock thing. And one of the locks did not pop out when it should have. I told Patricia we just need to used the dead bolt. Forget the little door handle thing! Wouldn't that have been something?

      Well done.

  14. Shooter in Las Vegas

    As long as man is killing man, it is a massacre, it started with Cain, and will end when Jehovah cleanses the earth of all who might prey on fellow man! (Every time I hear that, "pop-pop" of that gun, I shudder. It is the sound of people dying, just makes my heart hurt)
  15. Shooter in Las Vegas

    This sort of hit home. A country music festival. Sounds like something I'd have enjoyed. Don't know, but I think the only crowd I want to be a part of is is theocratic events. I love music, dancing. But, I think I will wait. My husband has said that they won't take this sort of violence seriously until it starts happening in this country. Well, it has.. Pitiful. Jerry, you and the friends will have a job cut out for you. Consoling a community that has been torn apart. Jehovah be with you.
