  1. I tried wearing high heels today after almost two years and my feet wouldn't have it for 5 minutes! I'll be in crisis mode if I have to go back to my kingdom hall anytime soon. I always do my hair and makeup and put on a dress still but I haven't worn pantyhose or high heels in 2 years. And I kind of really enjoyed that, it's a uncomfortable experience on both counts. Argh! I better start preparing now so I can work my meeting shoe wearing up to 10 minutes! That should get me into the Kingdom Hall and back out again! LOL!
  2. I read that La Palma had 35,000 recorded earthquakes in the last month. There seems to be no end to the volcanic activity there! I feel so bad for everyone. When you live on an island, where do you flee to?
  3. I'm sorry but it bugs the crud out of me when Brothers don't update the statistics and spiritual information in their talks!!! I can't think of anything else so I get nothing out of the talk
  4. I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Russian government and authorities are stymied by the fact that they can't break the Witnesses or stop them from loving their God. They are continually "upping" their game in hopes that they can get just one to break their integrity and squeal on their brothers and sisters. They are absolutely infuriated that none of the tactics they use for anyone else is working on Jehovah's people. So they keep escalating the intimidation tactics and physicality on them. Now they are even seperating husband and wives and beating them - can you imagine being your wife's protector and hearing her getting hit while she is handcuffed?!! I'm sure they thought this would surely get a man to tell where other brothers and sisters are - he could keep this from happening to his wife if he did. The next step will be to hold a gun to the head of a loved one and threaten to shoot right then and there if they don't give up the information they want (if they haven't already). Not much to be said about a country that imprisons hard-working, honest, tax-paying, caring citizens for taking a nature hike and talking about spiritual things. It's absolutely disgusting to me, I can only imagine how Jehovah feels. It would be so difficult to see these things happening to the people you love and still wait for the exact right time to stop it all. Jehovah is not only the King of the Universe, he's the King of Endurance as well!
  5. The actual disease caused by breathing in volcanic ash is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. It used to be the disease with longest pronunciation, not sure if it still is.
  6. I have an Android phone and tablet and I did have to go to settings and enable multi-window mode. Not sure if you would have to do that with an Apple device or not.
  7. So I assume they take the richter scale measurement from where the quake originated not what it feels like at the surface?
  8. I am vaccinated but still wear a mask wherever I go because I can still have COVID and pass it on to the unvaccinated, I get wierd looks and stares too. People who are vaccinated think I'm not so they're mad at me for not getting vaccinated and the people who aren't vaccinated think I shouldn't be wearing a mask at all, whether I'm vaccinated or not. No one even considers that I am showing respect and sanctity for THEIR life.
  9. Personally I think there will be a situation that none of the governments will want to deal with so they'll hand their power over to the United Nations to deal with it and then the United Nations will do something they didn't expect, they will do away with all religion.
  10. Isn't Larry supposed to dump a ton of snow on Greenland now? How often does Greenland ever get a hurricane let alone one that dumps several feet of snow on it? I didn't know hurricanes could do that.
  11. LOL, my math is as bad as the person I tried to correct! The blind leading the blind!😂
  12. For the rest of us not directly affected by this catastrophy, it might be time to give prayerful consideration to filling out a DC-50 form!
  13. Add 3 more zeros (19,000,000) and that is our whole memorial attendance. But it's still a good percentage, which is sad - 1900 congregations wiped out in 18 months is what it averages out to be.
  14. He made a slight faupaux when he gave the concluding part in the symposium about imitating faith of those in modern times too. At the end of his talk, he was going down he list of all those we discussed (in the order that they were discussed) and before the Modern Day examples, was Martha but he kept saying "Mary". Easy mistake to make, just shows they are all still imperfect humans like we are.

How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    My mother came into the truth in 1969 when I was 6 years old. I got baptized when I was 12 in 1974 so I could "temporary pioneer" and have tried to be a faithful servant of Jehovah ever since. My prayer every day is to "endure to the end" with the rest of my worldwide brotherhood!

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    I used to have quite a few - knitting, cross stitching, playing piano but have pretty much given everything up. Life and all we need to do to keep spiritually strong in this system takes up most of my time now! Hate to admit it but I'm an avid Classic Star Trek fan and I think "Too Cute" on the Animal Planet Channel is one of the best shows on television to date!
  • My favorite books
    God's Word of course! Don't have time to read much else.
  • My favorite quotes
    The only way to keep the truth is to give it away.
