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

    Thanks for taking the time to do this for us, Brother William.💙 My post above should say, "You cannot be effective if you are squished."

    I need to remember that quote the next time I'm put in a car group where I'm 'squooshed' into a backseat. Those Unity machines are awesome!!! What a delightful and faith-strengthening broadcast!!!

    I was just web surfing for sights of Jehovah's Creation to pause and reflect on, when I came across this: I was wondering why I had never seen it before, but then discovered it is on private land. This was another great reflector I found: Lastly, I just love the truthfulness of this quote:

    Do you guys mind If I post pics of things I make?

    Very nice! How many hours do you have to put into one? And, what do you get for them?

    We have the same harvesters here in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. They are called Feller Bunchers, because they fell the trees, and then bunch them up into piles.
  8. WOW! Thanks sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much for sharing, Sister Svetlana!!! Stinking unreal how history in Russia is repeating itself. Russia has perfected their Kangaroo courts over decades and decades of practice. Guilty before even tried. We know how the God of Justice, Jehovah, feels about, and deals with, such atrocious injustice. Gonna be praying extra hard for our persecuted family members in Russia. May Jehovah continue to sustain them, and may they continue to strengthen one another.
  9. I came across this when I punched enduring trials into search. JW.Org mentioned that this 2001 video was available in English. Anyone ever viewed it? Is it still available for viewing?

    Form Tuscon Az

    Sister Linda/Loopy and I have attended Conventions twice in Tuscon...back in the 1990's. It was really awesome!!! We could pick fresh oranges right from our hotel balcony. Between sessions, we got to visit the Desert Museum, and Nogales, Mexico. Much of Old Tuscon had just been wiped out by a fire, so we didn't get to see a whole lot there. Witnessed to our tour guide all the way to the border and back and picked up some super souvenirs: A colorful plaster parrot on a perch, a silver necklace for my Mom, a poncho, a marionette, and a big bottle of pure vanilla.

    A good joke

    A good joke

    I'm so senile, I can't remember if I've posted this, or not. But that's not the joke. This is: This is the tale of a woman...reading a book. One morning her husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the woman decides to take their boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and continues to read her book. Along comes a game warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, "Good morning Ma'am. What are you doing?" "Reading a book," she replies, (thinking "Isn't it obvious?") "You're in a restricted fishing area," he informs her. "I'm sorry, officer. But I'm not fishing, I'm reading." "Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up." "If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault." "But I haven't even touched you!" "That's true," says the woman, "But, you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment." "Have a nice day ma'am", the warden replies and leaves the woman to her reading.

    Yes. Zach is an African Grey Timneh, which is not as big as a Congo. Thanks for sharing your parrot experience. Wish it could have had a happier ending for you. I have had Zach since 1992 and Alex since 2004. They are a labor of love. 😁
