How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    The story of how I found the Truth exceeds the space allowed. : ( So I have posted it on the "How Did You Get the Truth?" thread, instead.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    Looking at Jehovah's creation that is visible to the naked eye and using my binocular microscope to view Jehovah's creation that is not visible to the naked eye. : D
    Writing short stories and poetry, jigsaw puzzles, horseback riding, hiking, camping out in a tent and sitting around a campfire, calling in the owls, bird watching,star gazing...pretty much all outdoor activities--except when the blackflies and mosquitoes are bad. lol
  • My favorite books
    Jehovah's letter to mankind and all of the other books provided for us through the faithful and discreet slave.
    The Potlatch Family, an old Scholastic book that I enjoy rereading from time to time.
  • My favorite music
    All of the Kingdom Melodies.
    The Bee Gees, Michael Bolton, Foreigner, most all soft Rock. Good melodies and beats but bad lyrics= no listen.
    I love Douglas Spotted Eagle's flute music and Al Hirt and Herb Alpert's trumpets and Kenny G's alto sax. Rodrigo's Concert de Aranjuez, Pachelbel's Canon. If it's beautiful and it's soothing, I enjoy it.
  • My favorite quotes
    Being an avid ecologist, I find great comfort in Jehovah's promise at Revelation 11:18b "...and will bring to ruin those ruining the earth."

    I keep threatening to have a T-shirt printed up that says: Nobody has to DRIVE me crazy. I'm close enough to WALK. LOLOLOL Or, "Why FARM? When there are so many easier ways to NOT make a living." lol Or, "We have a lot of breakdowns on the farm. Some of them are even mechanical." lolol
    Being a writer, I also like this one by Stephen Leacock: "Writing is not difficult. Simply get paper and pencil and write as it occurs to you. Writing is EASY. It's the 'occurring' that's HARD." lolol

  1. Don't usually read articles that give evolution the credit for creation, but this was an interesting take on how our brains 'possibly' function. This was especially deep:
  2. How I Spent My Summer Vacation:
  3. Our old "Got Hay?" sign in the front yard was looking pretty ratty, so, when my baby sister came to visit last week, I had her help me make a new one with a fresh round bale: The REAL sign has our entire phone # on it. My brother/brother sent me this pic: Talk about being in the right place at the right time.
  4. Awesome pics, Sister Sandy!!! Your husband is very talented. Thanks for sharing!!!
  5. Did somebody forget to wear their exclipse glasses?
  6. We had two letters read tonight. One, a reminder of our upcoming Circuit Assembly in Escanaba!!! (I love Escanaba, as it is just 45 miles away.) The other, a reminder of the invite to witness the Dedication of our new World Headquarters, live-streamed, or recorded and watched the next day. Yaye!!!
  7. For those who missed it, here are some awesome pics:
  8. Love this part, especially:
  9. Only 72% eclipse here, but still incredibly cool to watch Jehovah's nightlight cover Jehovah's daylight.
  10. Erm...Shouldn't Thoughtfully be Eagerly?
  11. Homonyms/homophones also contribute to the difficulty--not to mention the confusion.
  12. Yes. I already checked the approved eclipse glasses list, to make sure they were safe. I just have to laugh every time I look at my eclipse glasses. Our town's little co-op store's shelves are often lacking food staples, but, when everyone else was already sold out of eclipse glasses, they made sure that they had some for sale. No bread or milk or eggs or butter. But a plentiful supply of eclipse glasses?
  13. Forecast all week was for clouds and rain tomorrow, and I had pretty much resigned myself to the idea of watching it on TV or my computer. But the latest forecast is calling for a sunny day!!! Yaye!!!!!! I just may get to use my $2.78 eclipse glasses after all.
  14. Great report! Thanks for sharing!
  15. Forgot to mention... The site loads lightning fast now.
