  4. There may have been a thread on this before but I can't find it. I'm needing help on how to use the scan code to download the magazines or whatever else you can do with it. What do I need to download to use it on my cell phone. I don't know anything about it so any info will be appreciated. Thank you.
  5. Dearest Chris, I too cannot stand this! Is your son & family OK and what about you. I wish that there was something that I could do to comfort you, I will ask Jehovah to do that. We're to the point that it's continuing to worsen daily but all of it is shocking & affecting the brotherhood. Please take good care, Chris. You are in my heart & prayers.
  6. Thanks, Lynn. I wonder if they will just let it go at that or keep things stirred up.
  7. Dave, I too enjoy your blog! Love it!
  8. Dear Brother Henderson, I just want to tell you that after my divorce I had to go back to work full time at age 60 & then had to quit because of my poor health. I was scared & didn't know how I would pay all the bills. Now at age 72 I now live on my Social Security & small penson & have been able to pay my bills. Most of the time at the end of the month I know that the only way that I have accomplished this is with Jehovah's help. I don't have any extra after bills are paid but I am very very content with my simpler life. Staying close to Jehovah by reading the Bible daily, prayer, meetings & putting his Kingdom first in your life is the answer. Jehovah has promised that he will care for you. Sometimes when I feel that things aren't quite right, I stop & examine myself to see where I am falling short & correct whatever it may be so that our loving heavenly father, Jehovah will continue to take care of me. If you are able look for friends old & young that might need assistance & help them out. It makes you feel so good, just as Jesus said "there is more happiness in giving" :readbible:
  9. It just brings a tear because Jehovah, our creator is awesome! Thanks for sharing, Chuck!
  10. I plan on being a stand-up comedian & I'm half way there.
  11. Henderson, losing your empoyment is a cause for concern but keep in mind the expressions that has Jehovah made about sustaining his servants. The inspired psalmist wrote: “Jehovah will not forsake his people.” (Ps. 94:14) And Jesus Christ said: “Never be anxious and say, ‘What are we to eat?’ or, ‘What are we to drink?’ or, ‘What are we to put on?’ . . . For your heavenly Father knows you need all these things. Keep on, then, seeking first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all these other things will be added to you.”—Matt. 6:31-33. Therefore, all who truly seek God’s kingdom and his righteousness first will experience his loving care. Though you may find yourself in seemingly hopeless circumstances, the expressions of Jehovah’s mouth will sustain you. As the manna was a tangible expression from Jehovah’s mouth and kept the Israelites alive in the wilderness, so today Jehovah’s promise to sustain his servants will take a tangible form. Since undue worry about daily cares of life can be destructive to our spiritual outlook, we do well to keep strong our faith in Jehovah’s ability to provide for us.—Heb. 13:5, 6. You will be in my thoughts & prayers.
  12. Thanks, Peter! I enjoy keeping up on the news & have added it to my favorites. Another thing to take up my time!
