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.
    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.)

    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 😕
  2. 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.' 🏡😍
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. I'm in ICU and am watching this on tv. It's sad but leads to nice conversations with the nurses.. I'm fine, just a little heart rhythm problem...
  6. Mandi you're back! Missed you....

    Coconut water used as blood...

    It would be easier to just buy the cartons of coconut water Sandra. If you have a Costco by you, they sell a 12 pack for $10. XOXO

    I thought I knew it all

    In the year 2000 I worked at the U.S. Census entering people's info into a computer. So many claimed Native American ancestry on their form along with whatever other ancestry that I said aloud 'I don't feel special anymore!' And the blonde next to me said "me either!"
  10. Oh, well he did say about a '52!
  11. my husband thinks it's a '52 Chevy, Ross

    Where would I be if I did not have faith that I would see Jehovah's goodness in the land of the living? Psalm 27:13

    Invasive vegitation

    We have (or had) foxtails in our yard. I get out there with a small bottle of propane and my kitchen torch at the end of a grabber after it rains and zap them. I'll know this spring if I finally eradicated them. The local law enforcement frowns on the real weed torch we have, haha. This is on a small scale though so probably not helpful to you miss Bea...

    For those in California - Please read

    I remember! It was early, just before I left for work. My roommate came running out of her room and flung herself into my arms! Hahaha!! We watched the trees sway from our second story apt.
