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.

  1. I fell yesterday. In service. I was getting out of a back seat, my feet got tangled in my purse strap, and down I went. Initially, flat on my back. Then I bounced, and my head hit the ground, and it bounced. It was a hard fall. I remember as I was in the second phase, thinking, “Oh great, a two phase fall”. 

    I'm sore today. Actually pretty sore, and I did my neck no favors. At my age, it could have been life altering. Have you any idea how grateful I am? I assure you, that will not happen again. 

    I could have broken so many things. I feel like I really jarred myself. As I said, one thankful person, I am. 

    (It was my call, I went on it, then we all went home.) A long day that ended well!)

      There were times when I get  and I forget where I get it. And even how careful I can be I still stumble. How hard it must be for you miss Bea :(

      So sorry to hear about your fall but glad it wasn’t worse. We have to be more careful than ever before at our age..be well..❤️

  2. This I do know. If we get busy, come home long enough to dump things, and out the door again, it does effect my clarity of mind. (Such as it is). I get busy. For me, clutter around me means cluttered mind. Let’s just say, I’d like my mind to be more uncluttered.
  3. This series, I am familiar with. I have four on my bookcase. One I have reread. For the sheer enjoyment.
  4. Well, I am in for an adventure. I have books written by our brothers. And have enjoyed them. I got them out, checked, and it was not Thomas Walker. I headed over to Amazon. I have book 1, and book 2, on the way!
  5. We know what Jehovah encourages. He is a God of order. And, that is so. However, being humans, imperfect humans, at that, so, this tidiness may be on a bit of a sliding scale. We get a talk once a year on cleanliness. And, we pay attention to that. Cleanliness. Perfect tidy house? We have one sister that would not prefer to have company. None. (When she does hospitality for the CO, she brings the food to the hall) I’m having a hard time articulating why. But her perfect tidy house is an issue. OCD? I sort of laugh at that one. At me, not them. Two of my best friends, well, You get the idea. And they are wonderfully hospitable. I take them as my examples. My unachievable examples. In this system, anyway. I enjoy gettting things in order, but keeping them such, another story. I want my house to be not an embarrassment for unexpected company, but lived in. Clean, for sure, but, I am always trying to get it in better order... We need to be good examples in our community, and our home and yard is such. I’m going to be happy with that.

    How much has changed

    Not a bad seat in the house! And, I do not miss those lines in order to get that new publication. The videos. Of what kind, no matter. I love them. Oh, the music interludes.(?) I almost look foreword to them as much as the program. I just want peace and quiet to enjoy them. BTY, has there been a way to download our convention music that I missed? I love the treatment of older ones. Almost melts my heart. How Jehovah feels about us just permeates the atmosphere. I just feel, “What have I done to be treated so wonderfully?” Grew old in Jehovah’s organization. Nothing better. The organization, not this growing old business. But, if you have to do it, this is the place to be...
  7. It just dawned on me. My heart is in the new system. I cannot tell you why I feel that way, but I do. 

    I know we have work to do here, and now, but...hard to articulate. We have a cemetery on our land. My husbands people. His Mom, Dad, aunts, uncles cousins. Some he never met. 

    You know I want him here with me to greet them. The reality just gets closer and closer. 

    Makes not much sense, I know. Who to share it with, but you dear friends!

      Pondering on this ... sacred secrets ... obedience ... daily personal study/bible reading/prayer ... reading and following new releases ... making mind over ... firmly establishing cord between us and Jehovah ... cord feeds spiritual light ... creates reality although not yet beheld ... creates alien feeling ... hate what is bad ... feel sullied by Satan's system ... mind and heart focuses on light at end of tunnel ... the end is getting closer and brighter ... 

       

      Remember my dears - the LONGEST any of us will wait to go home - is our lifetime.

      Sister i feel the same way!  My heart is in the kingdom.  I am so done already with this world.  I long for Jehovahs kingdom so much it makes it hard to concentrate on anything else.  I think thats why I love this forum so much is because we are all so like minded.

      This is indeed strange because we were talking about this in service Wednesday. My thoughts are already in paradise, waiting for the resurrection to begin, sleeping well, eating good food, no pain, no fear, the animals not being afraid (wonder how long that'll take, I want to hold so many of them) Your comment about having visitors and wanting them to go home is spot on for my way of thinking as well.

  8. We are a smaller congregation. Three bible students come regularly. Plus two, I haven’t seen in the past weeks🙁 I’m enjoying getting to know one of them. She rides with me, and, it has been a joy. She’s pretty well commented and read scriptures from her first meeting.
  9. Pray, then pray some more...

    Retirement

    We built the house we live in. It’s been a long job, but, we don’t owe anyone. I shop resale shops as much as possible. I know how to stretch money. From days gone by... We don’t really travel, though, my granddaughter is heading for Germany to go to a university, and my daughter would like me to come and see her before she leaves. They live in Canada. I have a good service car, enough money to take care of my needs, and a bit to share. With the system as tenuous as it is, I’m feeling that we should be is in a situation where, if the need be, we can pay off anything we owe from money we have. Right now, there is a bit on my car, and my husband just bought a new truck. He’s good with money, and, it is close to being paid off. I used to hope Jehovah would retire with the systems end. Now, all I want to do is live to see it!
  11. Jehovah is fully aware, and this wil not bode well for the perpetrators of these atrocities. Poking Jehovah’s eye is really serious. .
  12. I’m noticing good ideas on retirement in a thread on personal loans. Both my husband and I are retired. On not a lot of money, by the world’s standards. We have our Social Security, some union retirement funds for both of us, and he bought land to sell for our retirement. And it has worked. We should not care much when we are bare bones, in our 90’s! No morgage, land taxes are there, but not bad. We also both have 401k’s that are not impressive, but for us, nice. We both can do what is important to us. Are there plans or ideas you’d like to share?
  13. I’m not apt at this business, either. I use a 6s, too. I just downloaded the purple app, and, minimal stuff. Bible, needed literature, and songs. Right now, I’m listening to kingdom songs. From my iPad. (To drown out tv!) Feel free to correct me, or have a better idea. I can use It!
  14. Sometimes I feel like I have walked into a personal conversation. That I did not want to hear. And, sometimes, it scares me. This site is precious, and if it gets out of hand... i know our dear moderators try to keep us rounded up. But, to me, it’s like with the elders. They mean so much. They do so much for us. Cooperate with the program! Just try to be Kind!
  15. Techie question. Is there a way to store photos on the iOS devices? I put them In albums, thinking that would work. Then I deleted one, (after taking a screen shot) and when I deleted it, it did disappear from the album. 

    Thanks, in advance for any help out there for me💖💖💖
