  1. A brother in our hall is having the same issue. He is helping another brother left and right, my husband also helps. All they get is complaining. They should have done it this way or that way. No thank you at all. It’s sad to see the worlds attitude affecting our brothers and sisters. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Anxiety is overwhelming me.  I can not even concentrate long enough to complete a full prayer!

      I liked the talk Anthony Morris gave in the 2016 Regional and he quoted Jesus at Matthew 6:25, "Stop being anxious about..." and then interrupted himself to say: "Just stop it!"

       

      Of course, you cannot do that right now, but that is the answer. "Just stop it." Read through those verses. Search out other info on anxiety - after all, Brother Morris would not have given the talk were the problem not huge among the friends. Don't beat yourself up if it doesn't seem to 'sink in.' Probably it won't, perhaps for a long time. Just gently work on trying to get the sense of it. Maybe some things will have to resolve first. Just make it part of your daily nourishment, talk it over with whoever you feel comfortable with to the extent you like, and see what happens. Nothing has overtaken you that is not common to humankind.

      I've experienced that a few times. Sometimes, I  just repeat the same phrase like "please help me! Please help me! Please help me......!" Or "please help me with x" until I have my thoughts together well enough to articulate myself better.

      I always think of that scripture at Romans 8:26, where it says the spirit pleads for us with "unuttered groanings". I hope things can get better soon and will strive to remember you in prayer.

  3. I have set a goal to reread or relisten to the article the extract came from. Not an in depth study (although sometimes that happens) but just a refresher. It's easy to listen on my commute or while house cleaning. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. There was an announcement men online jw.org about this or the broadcasting site itself. Sorry I can't remember which. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. My husband is a hunter and my dad was an avid hunter and landowner. My dad didn't let anyone he didn't know well use his property. (Family and very dear friends only and he even restricted some family lol) He had several concerns... If the person was hurt on his land them trying to sue him and the second concern was them going in and planting things that shouldn't be there. He was in his 70's he owned over 80 acres and there would be no way for him to know. Law enforcement often will do flyovers large wooded areas to check for "crops". Since the person is a total stranger I, personally, would not allow it. Just my opinion though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. There is a way to add google play store and add the Android JW library app. I was able to do it easily using a YouTube tutorial. Hubby and I have used kindle fire 8 for a year and love the reliability and the parental controls available. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hubby and I have been married since 2001. When I decided to study and work towards baptism he told me that was fine but he wasn’t ever changing his ways. I just snickered. I was baptized in 2006 and today hubby was baptized. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. There is a setting in the library though that will not allow streaming over mobile data unless you choose to allow it to. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  11. Mine will some times take me all the way out of meetings to the main page when i hit back but i can never remember if i should hit back on my tablet or use the back button in the app so mine is more than likely user error. [emoji1] [emoji12] Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  12. I use android and mine works on my phone and tablet... I always ck for updates and make sure they are installed. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  13. Time is correct so far nothing posted but maybe their courts don't stop at 5 like ours... Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  14. I got the last of the stamps at our rural post office... There were 16 left. Took what I needed and passed the rest on. The two little towns over are also out and the large post offices in Columbus GA were out when one of our elders was trying to get stamps. I pre-addressed 300 envelopes for our congregation to use when they gathered to write tonight. All but 24 were used and they are being passed to some that didn't make it to the gathering. I had a nice chat with the young lady at the post office. She asked if I was a stamp collector. I told her about the campaign and she was amazed. I may stop in this weekend to see if she is working and take her an invitation. I wish I had thought to have one with me when I went. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  15. Remember ... Jehovah can speed things up. If a letter needs to be there it will get to the right hands in the time it needs to. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
