  1. Does Dog sitting count? I stay at the owner’s house all the time. I’m either online, reading, record music or drawing when I’m not caring for the dog. Usually I do light cleaning so the house stays tidy
  2. I faced my biggest fear today!  I have severe arachnophobia, I can’t even look at a picture of a spider whether it’s real or not.  But today, I asked animal expert, Jungle Bob and his crew to allow me to hold a tarantula.  And the crew was so nice to me, and helped me face my fear.  I held a tarantula, guys!  I did it!  It was terrifying but therapeutic lol

      That would be like me trying to hold a madagascar hissing cockroach.:pinch:

      You're very brave(tu)

      I actually held a hissing cockroach before.  When I used to work in a pet store we had 2 that I named Kevin and Philip.  I didn’t mind them, it was like holding a bottle cap with legs and made noise.  Surprisingly, the spider named Rosie was a lot more soft than I thought she’d be.  I thought she’d feel like the cockroaches.

  3. This one made me laugh: A brother said, “I hate to be a squirrel. You’re in the middle of the road, and you clearly see something big coming at you. But you can’t decide if you want to run to the left or to right, and that’s gonna get you killed! You can’t be so indecisive when you can see the warning signs of something bad coming your way, especially during this time of the end. We have the clear directions from Jehovah, so we must go that way.”
  4. Brother gave a good one in today’s talk: Some people may remember when a man fired a shot gun at an original Leonardo DaVinci painting. The museum didn’t simply throw the painting away now that it was ruined. Instead, the took the time to restore the painting! Likewise, we all have some form of shrapnel that damages us, many even many damaged spots. However, Jehovah doesn’t throw us away, but takes the time to put us back together.

      I’ve just decided to be less talkative 

  6. I know I haven’t been on here for a long time, but my friend is in need of prayers.  A sister in my hall as autoimmune disease and she’s having a health scare today, so she’s going to the doctor.  Please pray for her to have strength and courage, and for things to work out to the best outcome.  Thank you!

      The gift of presence. Although we can't be there in person, know that we are there in spirit and you are in our prayers. Yes, we pray specifically just for you too that Jehovah is watching over you ever second of every minute.

       

      What cannot be cured, must be endured. Make yourself your own project. Get to know yourself better so you can love yourself as you are. Do things for you, yourself and no one else and feel ok and happy that you are worth it. 

       

      Regardless of how you feel, you are very valuable to Jehovah. Be like Hanna and pour yourself out in prayer  like a drink offering to Jehovah and make him your best friend forever.

       

      And, Don't Give Up.

  9. Speaker last Sunday gave an illustration for James 1:22 about what it’s like to be hearers of the word and not doers. Being hearers of the word is like having the most delicious looking 5 star meal....in your mind. It’s a nice dream, but you can’t get the nutrients from it. To be doers of the word, we not only can eat this amazing meal, but we get all the benefits from it.
  10. Today's talk had a cute illustration for Matthew 7:7-"Keep on asking, and it will be given to you; keep on seeking, and you will find; keep on knocking, and it will be opened to you." The speaker said, "this reminds me of Fruit Roll Ups." (For those of you who don't know what that is, it's a fruity sweet snack for kids...and me lol). The brother said when he was little, his parents were opposed of letting the kids have much sweets, but they would allow them to have Fruit Roll Ups. So when they went shopping at the grocery store, he would ask over and over for the snack. He'd tugged on his mom's clothes, and he would run to the produce aisle and grab it, and ask again. Sometimes he'd sneak it into the shopping cart, or "if you're really smart you sneak it onto the conveyor belt as everything is being scanned". That's what kids do when they earnestly want something. It seems like nothing can swayed them otherwise. So when we're praying, and we're seeking God, don't give up! Keep on asking! Be earnest in your prayers! It takes effort, not only to pray, but to live by our prayers. By showing we're putting in the work to have good standing, and show how much we love Jehovah. In the end, our efforts will be rewarded.
  11. Finally!  I'm at the happiest I've ever been!  My dark, gloomy self is finally coming into the light!  Hope in Jehovah, be courageous and strong of heart!  Yes hope in Jehovah!
