  1. Feeling relieved my first talk in the midweek meeting went well. Thanks to Jehovah and also the guidance and encouragement I received on JWTALK the congregation benefitted from it.  This was what I really wanted to achieve.

      Only had Bible readings so far I was assigned the Focus on Jesus to strengthen your faith. So was my first talk and was also at my relatively new congregation been in it around 6 months.

      My old congregation is the next one heading north around 20km away but was about twice the size so assignments were less frequent.

      Okay. I get it now.


      (Doesn't take me long, does it?)

      My student who had this same talk did a great job too. It was his first talk as in your case. I couldn't help feeling a bit proud. :)

  2. School Shooting Coral Springs, Florida

    It is a sick world when there is a need for news alerts for school shootings.
  3. Doomed to fail missing a vital element that we have.
  4. Looks like  I will be struggling not to cry again watching the video in Our Christian  Life mid week meeting.

      Totally can relate to that.  I watched it last night prepping for the meeting and Yes the tears came once more. I was taken back at the degree of emotion that I felt so deeply. Pass the tissues please. Bless Jehovah and praise His King Jesus.  It’s just around the corner.

      You are not alone, brother. Gets me every single time.

      There won't be a dry eye in our Kingdom Halls this week. :cry:

  5. Was just starting to watch the video on Russia when the dog ran in from outside. She had her new tory. She ran back outside after giving me the it's time to play look.

      You can always rely on the fur persons to interrupt you at important times. :lol:

  6. Ours is there but letter has not been read.
  7. Had our Circuit assembly yesterday, now the dog is following me around just in case I leave her for the day again.

      Poor doggy! You'll have to make amends brother and shower him/her with some TLC!..and a nice doggy snack on top of that!  :)

      The car park where we have our assemblys has no shade and with a temp of low 20s c it would of been way to dangerous to leave her in a car even with the air conditioning on.. At home I know she is safe I would of spent tiime worrying about her and not listening to the program. 

      And since I am on a charters bus they may object to having a dog  on board.

      My cat, Tipper, aka Abaddon or Apollyon, Rev 9:11, is the same way.  When I come from service or the KH he won't leave me alone but when I try to pet him - wow! only on his terms!  He likes to attack and bite.  He is doing better now about biting.  

  8. I can imagine it, Brother Greg, will you turn down your chair so others can hear.
  9. Feeling sad for a bother.  He lost his wife to cancer over the weekend. I have spent a lot of time in the ministry with him and have a great deal of brotherly love for him.  The memorial service is on the day we move to a neighbouring congregation with Jehovah's help I hope to be able to attend.

      I wish this wasn't true more and more lately. I went to a memorial for a faithful sister 2 weeks ago. Still in shock. My affection for you and the loss you feel.

    2. garryspicer


      Death of our loved ones is always a shock. How timely the recent Watchtower, "Weep with those who weep", was. Jehovah designed us to live and having to cope with death is unnatural and not what he intended for mankind . My condolences to the brother and yourself. Having experienced the pain of loved ones dying I find that Revelation 21:4 helps me. ( "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” )

    3. hatcheckgirl


      So sorry for your loss, Brother Richard.  It shows the unfairness of this system, that ultimately we all are destined to die, though Jehovah created us with "eternity in our hearts".  May Jehovah comfort you and of course the husband and family.

    Unlocking a phone is simply so it will work on another providers network. Removal of bloatware is independent of this not all bloatware can be disabled. Giving Root access to a phone allows you to do more to your phone. This may invalidate your warranty and comes with a risk you may make your phone unusable.

    Bacon and Egg Pie At its most basic Ingredients 8 large eggs 1/2 cup bacon, chopped 1 Egg yolk beaten with a tablespoon of water 1 Salt and pepper to taste 400g block (or sheets) of store bought 'puff' pastry Instructions Great for lunches, brunches, dinner or a picnic. You will need a 20.5 x 20.5cm cake pan, or alternatively a round 23cm pie dish is ideal. Preheat oven to 200°C. Roll out two thirds of the pastry on a floury bench to line a shallow greased 23cm pie tin. Scatter half of the bacon, break in the eggs and season, then scatter on the remaining bacon. Roll out the remaining pastry to make a lid. Crimp the pastry edges together with your fingers and trim off any excess. Use the trimmings to decorate the pie if you wish (attach these with a dab of egg wash). Cut four small vents in the pastry lid with a sharp knife. Brush with beaten egg mix and bake 35 - 40 minutes until rich golden brown and crispy Lots of variations from here people add potatoes, onions, peas. Whisk the eggs.
