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. Certain experiences we have had in life have affected us, but what forms us are

    relationships. And no relationship can form us and transform us more than the relationship with "Our Father'.

      Isn't that the truth Neil , I know I wouldn't be the person I am today if it wasn't for Jehovah molding me and allowing me to be his "best friend".  I am not sure when exactly it was in my life that I fully got the " height, breadth and depth"  of that reality perhaps after I lost my own father at a tender age of 16 was when I started to fully rely and lean on Jehovah for comfort, direction and support.  If ever for a fleeting moment you imagine yourself without Jehovah it just scares me to no end. I often smile to myself and say " I am so happy I know Jehovah". He has supported me through "thick and thin" as it were and I often think of the Romans 14:8 " For if we live, we live to Jehovah, and if we die, we die to Jehovah. So both if we live and if we die, we belong to Jehovah".  Isn't that a beautiful thought. :)
