How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I learned the truth when some sisters in door-to-door witnessing came to my house. One sister was the mother of a former classmate. For years when I was a child, my own mother used to hide when the Witnesses were in the neighborhood so I wanted to know for myself what the Witnesses had to say.

    Indonesia quake, tsunami toll jumps to 1,234: Disaster agency https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/10/indonesia-quake-tsunami-toll-jumps-1234-disaster-agency-181002070959712.html
  4. This is good information for those with interest in becoming U.S. citizens. It was in the 90s that I knew this family. At that time she had no interest. Since that time, I have moved away and don't know if she ever felt the need for U.S. citizenship.
  5. Many years ago I personally a Witness family where the mom was born in a different country. The father and children were born in the U.S. The mom was perfectly content not being a U.S. citizen. U.S. citizenship didn't offer her anything beneficial. I was born in the U.S. but at this time, I am a legal resident of another country. If the politics here change, and I am required to become a citizen, I will be content to leave if becoming a citizen would require pledging to a flag, or taking some other type oath, etc.

    The coolest hairstyle ever

    Now that American football season has returned, this dread discussion reminds me of something I have wondered about the players who wear the really long hair including dreads. Each time I see them tackling/ or being tackled I cringe because I feel a sense of whiplash! As a young girl, I had long plaits, and often my hair was yanked by those mischievous kids at school. That really hurt my neck!!!! I realize the football players are not "little girls." But nevertheless I imagine their necks being in pain because of their hair. And obviously dreads are not required, they choose to wear them. NFL Players With Long Hair Could Be in for a World of Pain https://www.racked.com/2018/2/1/16955990/nfl-long-hair-ricky-rule

  9. My introduction to Reddit was when an online search landed me smack in the middle of one of those anti-JW discussion pages many years ago. I don't remember now what I was looking for. But I remember being on that page. Every since then, if I'm searching for any type of information online, and some of the results are in Reddit, I can't bear to look at what Reddit has to say about it. It may have beneficial information, but I've been scarred and couldn't wash that off. 🚿 That's just my personal feeling. I'm not trying to start an anti-Reddit campaign.

    'Big One' talk swirls as 69 massive earthquakes hit the Pacific's Ring of Fire in 48 hours http://www.foxnews.com/science/2018/08/22/big-one-talk-swirls-as-69-massive-earthquakes-hit-pacifics-ring-fire-in-48-hours.html
  11. Yes, excellent idea. I love every opportunity to talk about my congregation. I love being in it. This is my Salon del Reino. This is San Jacinto, the little fishing village where the salon is located. The equator, Middle of the World (Mitad del Mundo) is located further north, just north of Quito Ec. My photo attached was taken from atop the tower in the Google maps image.
  12. The sister in the news video is absolutely right about the times we live in. A sad story but, I'm so glad for the camera footage of the arsonist... someone will recognize his walk, clothing, size, or the fact that he wasn't home at 4 to 4:30 am.
  13. In 1996 my father, who was not a JW, became very ill. He was 83 years old and was found to have a subdural hematoma--bleeding on the brain. After that surgery, while he was recuperating, his primary doctor began finding other medical problems with him. About three months after the brain surgery, my father was "diagnosed" with gangrene and the doctors suddenly wanted to amputate one of his legs up to his knee. My answer was No, Find another way. He just had brain surgery. You will not do an invasive surgery like an amputation on him. Another time his doctor said he was severely anemic and needed a blood transfusion. Of course my answer was No. The doctor couldn't believe I had the gall to disagree with him. His words to me were that I would cause my father to have a heart attack if he did not receive the blood transfusion. (I see in the article mentioned, the opinion is much different these days.) With the help of Jehovah and the sister who worked in the bloodless medicine office at a local hospital in Dallas, some medications that could help my Dad without the use of blood were suggested to me. Slowly but surely my father recuperated and also regained his thinking ability (resulting from the brain surgery). One day when my husband (nonbeliever also) took him for his monthly checkup, the primary doctor brought all of this up to my Dad and asked him how to proceed if these issues came up again. Without any coaching from my husband (I was not present), he told the doctor that it seemed like I had done a good job of getting him where he was, so he wanted me to continue making the decisions about his care. All I could do was thank and praise Jehovah when my husband told me his reaction. My dad lived for another two years only to be taken by pneumonia. One reason I am telling this story is to warn others that doctors are not always truthful with their "diagnoses." Don't get me wrong, I am not putting doctors down--we need them. However, they are imperfect human beings. The vast majority are worldly people and don't have our ethics. Sometimes they have wrong motives and do not look out for the welfare of the patients. It seems that when they realized Medicare and Insurance was readily available, they wanted to welcome themselves to a feast. I have seen this occur with other family members as well. Please research and get second and third opinions if warranted, when doctors give you or your loved ones grave or severe diagnoses. Sure, my father was elderly. But I have the satisfaction of knowing he was content and not in discomfort and agony his last few years. When he later found out they had wanted to amputate his leg, he was very happy I had said No.

    Depends on your definition of "often." Springtime in MS is the planting season. So yes it rains frequently, at least 2 to 3 times most weeks, if not daily. But I am talking about soft Spring rains, and the next morning all is usually dry again.

    Spring in Ms is usually pleasant, daily high temperatures 75F to 80F. Nights maybe 65F to 70F. Spring rains occur frequently also with lightening and LOUD thunderstorms. Because of the various flowers in bloom, the surroundings are usually beautiful and lovely. Sent from my Lenovo TB-X103F using Tapatalk
