How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    A neighbor of mine who was a brother and my best friend when I was a teenager who lived 4 homes up the street from me introduced me to the truth. Then I took a long journey through life before I got baptized in 1994. My Journeys through life experiences taught me some Important lessons on how Cold the world can be out there. I would always run into the brother that studied with me years ago before I was baptized and everytime we would run into each other he would always say to me "it's Cold out there isn't it, are you ready to come in where it's warm? I would (smile) at him and say back "I just love stabbing myself all over with many pains!" and (smile) again at him until we crossed paths again at a convention in Hampton, Va. and we walked up to each other and gave each other a hug, and then I told him about the story of my journey through life and finally said to him that day "it was time for me to come on in where it was warm because it was too Cold out there for me and I was tired of jabbing that knife deeper because the pain was to much for me to bear." (figuratively) I got the point and he did also, he knew me well, before he came into the truth we both own the streets. We were both college graduates and street smart but I had to learn through my journeys and life lessons what being Humble meant. It was crystal clear to me the meaning of humility on the day I came up out of the water when I was baptized that I knew my life journey had ended and I was beginning a new journey through life filled with hope, promise, purpose, love, protection, and the warm loving care and comfort from our God and loving father Jehovah. I am so thankful to Jehovah that he never gave up on me!

  2. I want to surprise my wife with a 7 day cruise for our wedding anniversary to the Caribbean islands. Do any of the friends have suggestions of Travel Agencies that you have used on past cruises that offered great package deals on 7 day cruises to Caribbean islands? I've heard friends mention different travel tour agencies where they got unbelievable cheap package deals for cruises or online sites to search. Could anyone provide me with a list of names of travel tour agencies to use or other online websites or other ways to find great package deals on 7 day cruises to the Caribbean islands? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...
  3. Yes I agree many years ago the game was popular and I too thought the game had faded away but this is something totally different now with this Pokemon Craze. Google "why are you starting to see so many groups of adult people standing on street corners staring into their cell phones playing Pokemon?"
  4. I'm involved in the Metropolitan cart witnessing work at least 20 hrs. a week in a large downtown Financial Metropolitan area that's home to BOA and Wells Fargo banks. Since the early part of last spring 2018 I was beginning to notice these small groups of people coming together at different times during the day gathering together on corners downtown, sometimes groups as large as 20 or more people. These were adults not kids and I'm talking about adults from all walks of life. These were Financial businessmen and women that worked on the 15th floor of the skyscrapers downtown, your vendors, people working in restaurants, hotel industry standing on street corners in their business suits men and women with their phones in their hands and their eyes fixated to the screens of their Cell phones not talking to each other but just looking at their phones playing this New Pokemon game. I decided to do some research on this because I was curious, I had never seen grown adults standing around on busy downtown street corners before in a group with their eyes fixated on the screens of their Cell phones and never talking to each other and after the game was over with for that moment they would just walk away and not say one word to the person they were standing next to. It was the weirdest thing I had ever experienced seeing from professional business people who work downtown. Well through researching this New Pokemon Craze what I found out is that the object of the game is to catch the Demon and find out where he is located next. This is not like the Pokemon you would see kids playing years ago and the kids would exchange Pokemon cards. Well today this game is like Pokemon on steroids chancing to catch the Demon and find out where he's located next. I was wondering if any friends have seen these groups popping up on street corners where they live and work downtown locations? —I remember one year my wife and I were on vacation in Jamaica and stopped to have a mixed alcohol drink similar to a drink in the Bahamas called Bahama Mama. Well anyway as my wife and I were sitting there chatting with the native Jamaican man about the island, places to go sightsee and the culture there. When we got to talking about the culture on the island his eyes seemed to get as large as a half dollar silver coin when he said "NO mon', you don't mess around with the Pokemon here in Jamaica, Pokemon is dangerous he will cast a spell on you!" My wife and I looked at each other with raised eyebrows finished our drink and moved on to enjoy the rest of our vacation...

  6. I agree Sis Ross, "Train a child from his youth up" he tried to make his case for a cupcake. When my kids were that age and my youngest wanted the last cupcake and her sister wanted it also sometimes I would place them in different rooms in the house and give one the cupcake and the other daughter another sweet snack bcoz my youngest daughter at 3 would plead her case why she didn't want to share her cupcake with her sister. Once they had finished eating their treat and came back together both of them were happy and had forgotten all about that one cupcake left.
