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).

    Books that you enjoy!

    As I grew up these became my staples as well: These were all pre teen. As I went into my teens I loved the series by Paul Zindel - My Darling My Hamburger, Pardon me you're stepping on my eyeball, and The Undertakers gone bananas! Now the novels I love are about the New System ... Thomas Walker and all the others. Love reading!

    Here are my favourite books I read all the time. Still read them now. From an early age these were given to me by my grandmother. I still have them. I read Tom Sawyer too. (Photos from the net) The Heidi one I had was from Joanna Spyri herself. (rather than an adaptation).
  3. Any hunting done by my family is well away from residential areas. i fully get not wanting to eat supermarket meat ... my husband worked in the abattoirs for some time ... and we always go to a butcher who sources the meat for himself for at least our red meat. But as a hunter, one would expect him to have his favourite hunting spots already, which should more than satisfy his needs. Be careful that he's not in the business of supplying meat or selling meat to other people. Go with your gut feeling on this - you know the situation better than any of us.
  4. Cold up here too .. to the bones cold. Probably not quite as bad as you though sis.

    Witness memes

    No we don't. Everything is rainbows and cottonwool in Aotearoa (Coughs slightly)
  6. Could you ask Carlos about fridge magnets please!!
  7. I want to meet this dude and ALL his family. (Tim, Denise Mrs Tort and their sister too! as well as the rest) (Dude being the name of the sea tortoise in Finding Nemo).
  8. Dalbyj is my dallyballybee ... my lil sis (spiritual sis) ... we get together whenever we can - which should be more ... dearly love her she has been faithful through many trials. Being in NZ we a bit isolated -Hatcheckgirl is on my list to meet before the NS, next time I'm hoping to be more successful!! Reckon we would make good neighbours for Gregexplore and Mrs Greg one day. Lots on my list to meet. And, perhpas there's one or two from NZ I could end up meeting at our Convention - who knows? Yeah she saw them, but they were poorly made and the G had dropped off, and she didnt know any Reg's so she went on by.

    Moscatos for me too on the rare occasion - cold beers in Summer on the rare occasion as well.

    Climate Change News

    And that, Brother John is our focus. Has to be, otherwise we'd go crazy.
  12. Wow ... talk about Jehovah taking us by the hand and urging us to not give up - that is a beautiful text. TY Vernalee. xx

    Climate Change News

    That's why I chose to answer you, because I saw the efforts you made to respect others, that was just lovely. Just wanted to present some reasoning for consideration that is all. It is very possible you are right about that brother, do not all of us sometimes assume the same about brothers - in our heads? I do with others too sometimes. I've just learnt and am still learning to keep those thoughts private - i've had egg on my face so often lol - or the other way is to speak generically rather than about an individual. Sometimes it might take a news item or a point from the FDS - then suddenly he may think oh right, William told me that it MIGHT be worth looking into. One of the best skills we can have as Jehovah's people is to salt our words so that our points hit home without offense, and I can see you are using that skill beautifully now. That's why I love this site so much is that we can ALL bring so many different points to the table, but at the same time treat everyone's perspective as valid, even if we disagree. Much christian love - your sis Mandi.
