How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    Third Generation Witness - so Jehovah has been part of my life forever and I hope forever will mean just that. Was hoping my children would be the fourth generation, but at the moment that hope looks bleak.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    I have many interests apart from spiritual interests which of course are my foremost. I am a foodie - love cooking (baking is okay but more cooking) - love writing short stories and reading ... I play the piano and draw portraits. I also love
    doing sign language. (NZSL).

    I love people in general, but mostly I love my brothers and sisters.
  • My favorite books
    The Bible is a given - otherwise I wouldn't be here but some secular books I enjoy - is the simple 'Lorax' by Dr. Seuss - (I have to think more about this one - don't have a lot of time to read secular literature).
  • My favorite music
    I love a wee bit of everything. Love the Beatles music but not their singing (I know that creates controversy), easy listening, SOME country - like "The Impossible" by Joe Nicols - songs that tell stories I think.
  • My favorite quotes
    See from the inside out, not from the outside in.

    (Sometimes it's hard to see people as Jehovah sees them but I do try).

  1. While a water canopy does make sense, the FDS has never been dogmatic about it because we simply can't be sure.
  2. Lol lol ... I so far, have NOTclicked that link - was going to though - glad John did it for me. haha.
  3. wow Chocobro I was baptized on Sept 23rd too ... 1983 ... congrats to your wife that is awesome news. Oh no sorry it was Sept 24th my bad ... almost though! lol.
  4. My sister and her husband (jws) recently were invited by his brother-in-law to partake of a sea trial for the newly built Ferry, the Torea which once tested will be headed to Auckland. Te Ake is a lovely chap as is his wife - very fond of them. Very skilled at what he does as well. My brother-in-law Dave usually does motorvlogs as NZBeeker on Youtube, but this time he's done an hour long video of their test run. For those of you who like boating you will find this very interesting. Q-West is a very well known boat building firm here in Wanganui (my hometown) building boats even for the Australian water patrols. They have a very good reputation and create some quite flash Ferries. This one is no exception. They had some wild pork going on in the 'cafe' part of the Ferry - we have some of that in our freezer too. So thought this is a little different and it gives you a little view of Wanganui New Zealand. Kapiti Island is a bird sanctuary ... very pretty. When Tom and I lived in Castlecliff, on a good day, we could see this island from our breakfast table. The river where they exit was also our view. Anyway hope you enjoy. Having probs putting in the link ... but if in youtube you type in NZBeeker its his second video currently. You should get it.
  5. The flaw in your argument there, is the first mention of a kathmandu jacket - was by an Aussie who lives in Australia! Maybe not up North where you are ... but an Aussie none the less on the same continent/island. See down there??? LOL LOL Warm Christian hugs back atcha.
  6. Yes! I've noticed that mc donalds have chicken wings and you get 1/2 of what I consider a chicken wing when asking for one! (1/3 going by what you said). I don't get that either. Here in NZ private shops still sell chicken wings with both pieces still attached it's only American based Franchises that sell them the other way. Another example of us being ripped off again. The younger generation don't probably even realise how a chicken wing is formed on a chicken. A girl in the supermarket some time ago asked me if what I had in my trolley was lettuce or a cabbage when weighing my produce. Matt from Australian Masterchef, cooks his wings in the oven in coke. Apparently it's really lovely the way he does it ... doesn't sound that healthy though ay?
  7. Well to be honest, the price is the only thing that can fly with those chicken wings in the state they are.
  8. I love this ... this is so brother Lett and it's so true ... who wants to be dead forever?
  9. Whewww haha. TEAL (my fav colour)
  10. Why is Mead not valid?
  11. Aaaah so one letter for a four word and one or two letters for a five word? Mead.
  12. You are absolutely correct ... my apologies. That makes a few of your words valid based on that. Girds is the last valid word then based on post one of this thread. Girth.
