    We had a guest speaker doing the public talk today, coming all the way from Perth, Australia! I know there's someone on the forums from there, but I can't recall who. Interested to know the details? PM me.

    I remember we had ever got a reminder in kingdom ministry or meeting workbook about not to preach on random person in social media? Or maybe a reminder that is similar?

    I cannot believe how some people can show so little regard for their neighbors.   
     
    My insurance company sent me a Covid packet last summer
    with a big blue sign that says "This House Practices Social Distancing".
    The sign is prominently displayed on the window of our front porch entrance.
     
    Well, one of our hay customers just ignored that sign and walked right into our kitchen--UNinvited
    and UNmasked.  
     
    (She, and many of her church members, got Covid last Winter, by not practicing social distancing,
    and by continuing to attend their church services, in spite of warnings.)
     
    She displayed no respect for our home, or any concern for our lives.  
     
    In other words, she showed no 'love for her neighbor'.

    I needed a bit of a break, because I found a lot of the topics on some subjects to be really emotional, I think because David and I have been struggling a lot with getting married, and over the years, I've been struggling a lot in my relationship with my mom.
    Long story short, I have the visa now, so now it's just a case of navigating through travel in a Covid world.
    I'm sure David will be a big help though

    Even a turtle could outwalk Poor Mephibosheth. From IT , David felt compassion for Mephibosheth because of the oath of Jehovah between David and Jonathan and spared Mephibosheth. (2Sa 21:7, 8) The Scriptures provide no further information about Mephibosheth, though Saul’s family continued in existence to a later generation through Mephibosheth’s son Mica (Micah). (2Sa 9:12; 1Ch 9:39-44) Evidently Mephibosheth also had the name Merib-baal, as 1 Chronicles 8:34 and 9:40 would indicate. A moving account of hardship and forgiveness.

    Yesterday was our 61st wedding aniversary. We were not planning anything big. A couple in our congregation had told us they were bringing dinner. Our daughters wanted to have a little Zoom get together.
    What a surprise, all our active family members (13) were zoomed in including our niece who joined us from somewhere in China (15 hour and 1 day difference in time.) It turned out the dinner was coordinated by Leslie and Jerri through the local family. The get together lasted an hour when Leslie said "Your dinner is here so we will say goodbye." At that moment the doorbell rang and we were presented with prime rib for two and a bottle of fine wine.
    Glad we could keep it small.

    Well, I’m up to Sharing this, now. 
    A few weeks ago, we lost our Hop-Along. (That is a bitter story) 
    We both doted on him. He was a beautiful three legged kitty. It was those three legs that did him in. He could run fast enough. 
    We have two new kittens. A long hair tuxedo kitty, and, his bro, a tabby, tailless short hair. 
    They are rescues. Born under a bridge. 
    Bob, (no tail) thinks all is well. The black and white is more feral. And, glares a lot. But he does not live inside the recliner anymore. They are in the cat tree! 
    I have misgivings. This was not my choice.   But, I will have a grand time with this new adventure. 
    I had to move my Zoom room upstairs. My den is a big ol cat house. 
    I can just hear our brother say, “No, I don’t know about your cat-during the GT.

    Tortuga reacted to Old for a status update, Our daughter and her husband Leslie and TJ Southwell had their 35th wedding anniversa   
    Our daughter and her husband Leslie and TJ Southwell had their 35th wedding anniversary today. Many of you might recognize them as I have posted much about them previously. Their sons Justin, Korey and wives had planned on gifting them a trip to Hawaii. Corvid-19 came along and all plans were off.
    What did they do? They Zoomed an anniversary party for this evening. We were connected via zoom to party in Everett Washington. Zooming in at 5:30 many in their congregation drove by beeping their horns and displaying congratulations banners and a few waved heart balloons.
    The son’s and daughter are backyard neighbors always together from the first of the Coronavirus lock-down, and they prepared it as a surprise. Worked well, Leslie knew about dinner plans, but the participation with the zoomed family knew about dinner plan but the zoomed gathering was a total surprise. Some zoomed from as far away as California.
    Good times in the middle bad times.

    So embarrassed right now.  >.< The elder texted asking if they could drop off wine/bread today for tomorrow  but said I'd need a container (makes sense rather than giving everyone a bottle).
     
    The only container I can find is a tumblr cup but.... the only one with a lid I could find is the pokemon one. Which I sent a picture of to ask if it was appropriate. It'd be moved to a cup of course, but to hold it in till then ..
     
    Oh god, pokemon, like, what's he going to think? I have no issue with pokemon still but this is an elder who's like ex-military strict. I'm so nervous for the answer I'll get texted back.
