How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    A very long story. I will have to take some time to write it all out.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    I enjoy playing Chess and a variety of sports such as Tennis, Basketball, and Football. I like to watch the Wimbledon, US Open, the NBA & NFL, and international soccer. I don't think of this as a hobby, but some of the most enjoyable moments I have had was when I was doing deep research on a particular question that developed in my mind from the scriptures or some theocratic question, and then finally finding the answer and seeing Jehovah's view on that specific matter! These are special moments to me because my mind is then opened up and I see how much Jehovah's ways are so incredibly more loving and higher than how I think! And so then these moments put me in "awe" of Him and that's when I realize that I just at that moment drew closer to Him! So these are moments that I really value and want to experience more.
    I also really love all animals and I have a burning desire to spend a great deal of time with the great variety of animals in the New World!
  • My favorite books
    Mostly astronomy, cosmology, and anything of science that helps me learn about Jehovah as the Great Designer and Engineer
  • My favorite music
    I do love music but I seem to like genres & artists that other brothers in my area don't really listen to like Mario Frangoulis(Greek Tenor), Vittorio, Josh Groban(saw him 2x live in concert), Andrea Bocelli, Lara Fabian.
    Yet I also really like 80s R&B like Jeffrey Osborne, Peabo Bryson, Toni Braxton, James Ingram.
    There are other genres & singers I listen to like Marc Anthony(Spanish), Daughtry(Rock), and Sarah McLachlan.

  1. How encouraging and comforting it would be if more people had this rare view of us?

      Sharon, this is another reason I very much value Jehovah's view because you and I and likely many others feel we fail so often but yet Jehovah sees in our failure the good that we wanted to do. For example, let's say that we go to "make peace" with someone, but the discussion becomes an argument and we feel worse because we failed to make peace. Yet Jehovah has this rare view,

      "I see good in Sharon, she decided to make peace because she knows how important that it is to me,  she even took the initiative to speak to the other person even though it was hard for her, so she is a "peacemaker"  like me and I am proud of her for that. So even though her attempt for peace didn't work this time, I saw the good she wanted to do and I saw the good that she did". :)

      So Sharon viewed her attempt at peace as a failure, but Jehovah saw good in the attempt and saw good in what Sharon wanted to do :)

      Thanks Neil.  I need new glasses I guess.  :)  I'm having a hard time seeing things lately.

      This was me today ...............I had the ministry planned, got out of bed and felt like a truck hit me.  I had to just ask Jehovah to help me just get out the door and to the group. What a struggle but with his help I made it. I didn't set the world on fire but I was out and actually had a little extra energy after the ministry to accomplish a few necessary tasks. Thanks for the reminder Neil that Jehovah sees the good we would like to do. This is our CA weekend so I thought I would give the free day ( no meeting) to Jehovah.  NO matter how hard this old system is on us there is still no better life. :)
