    When did the news become x-rated? Then I started thinking. Women’s products, men advertising catheters, (in the doctors office, thank you) um, men’s products.
    I remember my, “not in the truth yet”, daughter saying she was being made uncomfortable with the tv’s adds, because of her young daughters. 
    Nevermind the, “news”. 
    Its flat out disgusting.

    A 36 year old ELDER, with a seriously rock solid theo family background, beautiful wife, happy marriage, new home, trips around the world, very active in every way,... just took his own life and no one understands why.  There were no red flags, no known depression, no clues.  We are related.  I'm used to feeling sorry for myself, having a sub-standard life with non-believers BUT, in terms of pain, what pain could ever compare to this scenario??  A brother commented tonight "We may see more of this..." A reference to the times we live in.  It is terrifying to watch  a "stable" one fall.  May Jehovah help us all.  PLEASE, pray for our elders, we need them, each and every one of them.

    We have a beautiful new couple that have been assigned to our cong. for one year. I thought their original language was German and tried a little Deutschen  with them, but was told by the Sis that Dutch is their native tongue. I will try to learn some Dutch language this year.  Exciting times; we can pray to our Almighty God in any language.

    Gertrude is home and happy, five months and four days from the beginning. Intersting, on her last visit yesterday, the sureon stated that a couple of time he was afraid they had lost her. He said it was the most difficult operatigon for a subdural hematoma that he had performed. I am glad he kept it from us at the time, but it is exactly what the family was feeling. 
    Thanks for kind posts and prayers

    Just got back from a 5 day, 4 night trip to New England(Actually two days were primarily travel days. ) to visit relatives and the first KH I ever attended in the 80s. Saw some old friends and the brother who gave the public talk at my first meeting. The WTCH that day was 'Fully accomplish your ministry.' 12/15/84 - Still trying.

    Hurricane Florence will be making landfall this week which will impact our region.  The brothers made a special announcement at our meeting this past Sunday to emphasize giving the secretary our telephone numbers. (Ironically, we had a local needs talk on emergency preparedness only two weeks ago.)  We have to been told to "prepare" to evacuate and "put together an emergency kit" ASAP!  (No problem there!)  Though we're not sure if our C.A. will take place this weekend. 
     
    This seems so surreal!

    I tripped earlier today while trying to prevent the dog from running into the yard to escape a bath. Hit my head on the kitchen table and got a very deep cut right through my eyebrow. Four stitches and it is still oozing blood.

    Thank you so much for that beautiful card, we will treasure it the rest of our life. It cheered us up in a sad day. Proof that Jehovah is using His faithful servants as yourself to comfort and upbuild those who are sad.
     
    We love you deeply and ask Jehovah that he blesses you and your hubby.
     
    Forever yours,

    Do you believe that we'll be singing "Give Me Courage" at a future point in time at one of our meetings?  It's not part of our SOJJ songbook and it's called an "original song". For example, the special dedication song: "A Place That Will Bring You Praise."  (When will we ever sing this song again?)  
     
    I'm just wondering because it's such an uplifting piece of music.

    Gertrude is home.
    I have been too exhausted to post. We brought Gertrude home to Leslie's two days ago. They had for wait for her blood pressure to stabilize between 140 over__ to less than 180 over -- anything lower than 135 and she would lose her speech. Anthing over and they were worrie about a stroke. Some thing to do with blood vessels shrinking in size due to brain injury. Her blood press should return to normal in a couple of weeks and she will be able to return to Newport.
    Today is our 59th wedding aniversary. Leslie and I are preparing a low key party for this evening.
    Four difficult months: Shingles causing loss of leg control, a minor fall, bleeding on the brain, two brain surgeries, two ambulance trips, 15 days in ICU. We hope it is over.
