How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I learned the truth from someone who wasn't a Witness at the time. I was moving, so I loaded my last carload and drove over to a workmate's house to tell her goodbye. Eventually she began to tell me a story that went in one ear and out the other. Something caught my attention though and I made her tell me all over again. I left her house with a Truth book and shortly went to the same kingdom hall I'm still in to ask for a study. A friend from high school was there and she became my spiritual mama!. My workmate and I were baptized together.....(her mother was a sister.) Oh, and I was on vacation from work at the time I was moving. When I returned back to work my attitude had flipped so drastically that someone told me "you left for vacation one person and you came back another person!". Yes. Now I was HAPPY! Also, the boyfriend I had at the time told me the girlfriend he had before me also left him to become one of Jehovah's witnesses, haha. That still makes me smile!

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    My little grandbabies. Now that I'm babysitting them I have neither the time nor the energy for extras other than meetings, study, and service.
  • My favorite books
    Currently, besides the Bible and our publications, I'm seeing the wisdom of Eccliastes 12:12. I have way too many books and I'm torn between donating them and trying to sell them. Either way they have got to go!
  • My favorite music
    Honestly I'm so out of touch. Muscrat Love came out along with some equally annoying songs, and with the demise of the only two fm stations that played late 60's and early 70's rock with no "bubble gum" I somehow got stuck in that era. Thankfully it doesn't work that way with our Kingdom songs!
  • My favorite quotes
    Don't believe everything you think.
    And:
    If you think you can or if you think you can't, you're right. ( As you can see, I think I can't. Every time I try to contribute to a discussion, I chicken out.)

  1. When Adam selfishly disobeyed Jehovah, he passed that selfishness on to us. We naturally have that struggle....
  2. I really love Psalm 27:13 Where would I be if I did not have faith that I would see Jehovah's goodness in the land of the living?
  3. Me too. But lately I've been sensing that it's possible we may be moving in with each other. I'd have one or two available rooms to share. That is if I could give up stuff. So with that thought in mind it's been easier and easier to unload some of my unessentials. Not a possibility for everyone though.....

    Keto, IF and OMAD...

    Thanks. Or maybe I'll try 5-4-5 or 4-5-5. We're yours easy to peel Elizabeth?

    I think you're right Elizabeth. I should get out my manual and see if mine will do half minutes 😊

    I've never experienced such easy to peel hard boiled eggs until my instant pot. You can Google the 5-5-5 method. If I only made hard boiled eggs, those alone would be worth the price of the pot.
  7. Thank you brother Manfred! I will no longer fret over whether to get a new laptop!
  8. Hi, Sorry to ask this, there's probably an answer in this thread already... What I was wondering is, is there anything on the WT Library DVD that isn't on our other three websites? Thanks in advance for the help

    A good joke

    A wife called her husband who was driving to warn him to not get on the freeway because there was a wrong way driver. There's not just ONE, he shouted back. THERE'S HUNDREDS!!!!!

    Pool care

    Maybe a good scrubbing with citric acid? I know it works great in my dishwasher and water distiller on mineral deposits...
  11. I make bone broth in mine. The Instant Pot colander accessory for straining, along with a huge bowl, a canning funnel and jars and you're all set. It's the easiest and least messy method I've found! Very keto 😊

    zero waste

    I bury fruit and veggie peels and trimmings in the back yard. Where I've done that the soil is much improved. When the weather warms up I'm going consider black soldier fly composting for meat scraps, etc. Now there's some entertaining videos to look into on YouTube if you get a spare moment! 😜 I fail miserably at bringing back plastic bags to buy groceries though. I could start a bag store. It slips my mind nine times out of ten 😕
  13. I've been housesitting since Thursday and just now I've decompressed enough to post this. My wealthy in-laws have a beautiful home in the hills. I love watching the gorgeous sunsets from their spectacular vantage point. Some days I can see a sliver of ocean, and Catalina and Avalon islands. Disneyland still sets off fireworks at night I assume. I usually forget to check anymore. Coming face to face with a coyote now and then gets my heart racing. They always blink first though! They have made an inviting guest room with room darkening drapes ( not that they're needed up here.) Sleeping so well! The thought of going home tomorrow is starting to restrict my breathing, haha. The reason for my being here says to tell you 'meow.' 🏡😍
  14. You should see this place. It's so rough. People uproot their tumbleweeds and throw them over the fence into their neighbors yard. Some of the roads are still unpaved. I'm surprised anyone cares about this girl's tattoos
  15. I couldn't trust myself to properly cook steaks tender and juicy on a grill inside or out. So I have a little sous vide device that takes the trepidation away. After they're done, I take a kitchen torch and give them a nice char on the outside.
