      Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said this afternoon search and rescue efforts today in the Beauregard community have so far not revealed any more fatalities from Sunday’s tornadoes, with the death toll standing at 23, but Jones said “dozens” of people are still unaccounted for.
      “The search teams have worked the areas of the most significant damage,” Jones said. "I am pleased to report we have not recovered any further victims from the areas that we have initially searched. But I want to offer a caveat with that, that we have not completed our searches."
      ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      The tornado ravaged a small neighborhood in Smiths Station on Lee County 430, where Greg Molinari and many of his neighbors sorted through the damage on Monday morning. Molinari was upbeat even though his home was destroyed. He said he and his wife, Susan, survived the storm because they took his daughter-in-law’s advice and put large cooking pots over their heads as makeshift helmets.
      “The sirens were going off quite frequently and we said we better take this very seriously. That was about three o’clock,” Molinari said.
      “And my wife and I received a text from my daughter in law. She said get in the bathroom and put pots on your head. Well, the bathroom wasn’t a great idea because it’s an exterior wall. But we went in the hallway, which is a small, confined area here. And we did put big cooking pots over our head. Saved our lives. The ceiling crashed in on us.”
      The tornado ripped the roof off Molinari’s house.
      “And we were trapped in there,” Molinari said. “We couldn’t get out even though we were OK. Our neighbor across the street here, he came screaming over, ‘Is anybody in there? Is anybody in there?’ We said, ‘Yeah. We can’t get out.’ He dug us out.”
      Molinari said he and his wife then rode out the storm at the neighbor’s house.
      “Him and his wife, his daughter and his dog and us, we all hunkered down in there," Molinari said.
      Molinari said another neighbor he didn’t know helped in their rescue.
      Molinari said he had reason to be positive despite the disaster.
      “We have a very strong faith," Molinari said. "We’re Jehovah’s Witnesses. Our God Jehovah takes care of us. We believe he helped to protect us. He’ll also help us recover from all this.”

      I found a love for me
      Oh darling, just dive right in and follow my lead
      Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
      Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
      'Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
      Not knowing what it was
      I will not give you up this time
      But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
      And in your eyes, you're holding mine

      [Chorus]
      Baby, I'm dancing in the dark with you between my arms
      Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favourite song
      When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
      But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight

      [Verse 2]
      Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
      She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I'll share her home
      I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
      To carry love, to carry children of our own
      We are still kids, but we're so in love
      Fighting against all odds
      I know we'll be alright this time
      Darling, just hold my hand
      Be my girl, I'll be your man
      I see my future in your eyes

      [Chorus 2]
      Baby, I'm dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
      Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
      When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
      I don't deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight

      [Instrumental]

      [Chorus 3]
      Baby, I'm dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
      Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
      I have faith in what I see
      Now I know I have met an angel in person
      And she looks perfect
      I don't deserve this
      You look perfect tonight

      Mama always told me don't you run
      "Don't you run with scissors, son
      You're gonna hurt someone"
      Mama told me look before you leap
      Always think before you speak, and watch the friends you keep

      Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said

      Sharp edges have consequences, I
      Guess that I had to find out for myself
      Sharp edges have consequences, now
      Every scar is a story I can tell

      Should've played it safer from the start
      Loved you like a house of cards
      Let it fall apart
      But all the things I couldn't understand
      Never could've planned
      They made me who I am
      Put your nose in paperbacks
      Instead of smoking cigarettes
      These are years you're never getting back

      Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said

      Sharp edges have consequences, I
      Guess that I had to find out for myself
      Sharp edges have consequences, now
      Every scar is a story I can tell

      We all fall down
      We live somehow
      We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger
      We all fall down
      We live somehow
      We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger

      Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said

      Sharp edges have consequences, I
      Guess that I had to find out for myself
      Sharp edges have consequences, now
      Every scar is a story I can tell

      We all fall down
      We live somehow
      We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger
      We all fall down
      We live somehow
      We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger

      IÂ’m dancing with my demons
      IÂ’m hanging off the edge
      Storm clouds gather beneath me
      Waves break above my head
      At first hallucination
      I wanna fall wide awake now
      You tell me itÂ’s alright
      Tell me IÂ’m forgiven
      Tonight
      But nobody can save me now
      IÂ’m holding up a light
      Chasing up the darkness inside
      'Cause nobody can save me
      Stare into this illusion
      For answers yet to come
      I chose a false solution
      But nobody proved me wrong
      At first hallucination
      I wanna fall wide awake
      Watch the ground giving way now 
      You tell me itÂ’s alright
      Tell me IÂ’m forgiven
      Tonight
      But nobody can save me now
      IÂ’m holding up a light
      IÂ’m chasing up the darkness inside
      'Cause nobody can save me
      Been searching somewhere out there
      For whatÂ’s been missing right here
      IÂ’ve been searching somewhere out there
      For whatÂ’s been missing right here
      I wanna fall wide awake now
      So tell me itÂ’s alright
      Tell me IÂ’m forgiven
      Tonight
      If only I can save me now
      IÂ’m holding up a light
      Chasing up the darkness inside
      And I donÂ’t wanna let you down
      But only I can save me 
      Been searching somewhere out there
      For whatÂ’s been missing right here

      December 15, 2017 TO ALL CONGREGATIONS Re: 2017 Service Year Report
      Dear Brothers:
      We are pleased to share encouraging highlights from the 2017 service year report. The peak number of publishers was 8,457,107. Jehovah’s people spent a total of 2,046,000,202 hours in the ministry, a 3.1 percent increase from last year. We are especially encouraged to see a 7.4 percent increase in the number baptized, with a total of 284,212! This is evidence that we take seriously our commission to “make disciples.” (Matt. 28:19) We were delighted to see that the average number of regular pioneers was 1,225,279. This was an 8.6 percent increase! The worldwide Memorial attendance figure was 20,175,477. Significant features of the service year report will soon be available on jw.org and in JW Library, Watchtower ONLINE LIBRARY, and Watchtower Library. These figures provide compelling evidence of Jehovah’s blessing on our work.—Isa. 60:22.
      Throughout our branch territory, it is evident that Jehovah is searching for those “rightly disposed for everlasting life” in the language of their heart. (Acts 13:48) For instance, we are happy to report the formation of the first ever Cherokee-language congregation during the past service year. The first Swahili-language circuit in our branch territory was formed effective September 1, 2017. In addition to those reached in the door-to-door ministry, public witnessing initiatives are reaching more people than ever with the Bible’s message. There are over 17,000 publishers participating in the special metropolitan public witnessing program in 17 locations. Harbor witnessing is now organized in 45 ports, with 4,400 trained publishers boarding cargo and cruise ships in an effort to witness to crew members. Public witnessing campaigns organized at large state fairs and sporting events are exposing millions of individuals to the good news, as well as adding great impetus to this aspect of the preaching work.
      Much has also been accomplished in regard to Kingdom Hall usage in the United States branch territory. Twenty branch planning meetings were held with bodies of elders in metropolitan areas affecting over 2,200 congregations. Implementing non-construction solutions such as merging or relocating congregations has reduced the need for new auditoriums in these areas from 41 to 19, with a potential savings of millions of dollars!
      Be assured that Jehovah values your faithful service and that he will continue to give you the necessary strength to “fully accomplish your ministry” in the coming year!—2 Tim. 4:5; Isa. 40:31.
      Your brothers,
      PS to coordinators of the bodies of elders:
      Please arrange for this letter to be read to the congregation by the elder handling the part “Annual Service Report” in the Life and Ministry Meeting the week of January 1, 2018. Thereafter, the letter should be posted on the information board. This postscript should neither be read to the congregation nor be posted on the information board.

      Who are the most beautiful women in the world right now? Who do you think deserves the title of most beautiful woman of 2017? Here, below is a list of world’s most beautiful women.
      Beauty is the most debated topic in the world, and there is no ever clear winner. One who considered most beautiful at one time may lose her position at another time by someone else. Women normally have an attraction towards their physical characters like hotness and glamour. But, there are a few other factors like level of celebrity, confidence, intelligence, popularity, and skills too. It’s universal fact; beauty lies in the eyes of beholder. But when it comes to rank the beauty of a person, it is necessary to calculate the internal beauty as well as the external beauty. The external or physical beauty will age with time, all other factors remain ageless and keep person beautiful forever.
      Here, we have made a ranking of most beautiful women of 2017. The women listed here are confident, intelligent, desirable, dynamic and are very dedicated to their job. Vote for your favorite lady, and be sure to add anyone who’s missing from the list.

      A native of Florida, Abigail Leigh Spencer named People Magazine’s most beautiful women of 2017. She is an American actress known for her roles in several television series. Spencer began her career on the ABC daytime television soap opera All My Children playing Rebecca Tyree from 1999 to 2001. She is best known for her recurring roles on Mad Men and Suits. Also known for starring in the series Rectify and Timeless, for playing the leading role of history professor Lucy Preston.

      La tercera edición de los premios de fotografía Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards revela la cara más desenfadada, humana e imperfecta de los animales.
      Desde la infancia, el reino animal siempre se ha mostrado majestuoso y lleno de elegancia. Solo hay que pensar en la figura de los imponentes leones, la espectacularidad de los elefantes o la sutil desenvoltura de un delfín en el mar. Mediante los documentales y la ficción cinematográfica, se ha promovido e inculcado esta incuestionable solemnidad. Sin embargo, esa idealización tan seria de la naturaleza dista mucho de lo que promueven los Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards.

      Estos premios de fotografía, fundados por los profesionales Paul Joynson-Hicks y Tom Sullam hace ya tres años, dan un giro de 180º a la fotografía convencional y revelan la cara más desenfadada, humana e imperfecta de los animales.

      Bajo la organización de la fundación The Born Free, el concurso pretende conseguir, a través de una mirada más lúdica y entretenida, la conservación de todas las especies en el planeta. De esta forma, la risa se convierte en el arma más poderosa de concienciación medioambiental.

      Tras el éxito en las pasadas ediciones en 2015 y 2016, este año se han registrado aproximadamente 3.500 participaciones procedentes de 86 paísesdiferentes. Osos karatecas, cangrejos desconcertados, jirafas que atrapan avionetas e incluso monos motoristas. Nada pasa desapercibido para los concursantes de esta edición.

      Los jueces encargados de la decisión definitiva son los propios fundadores del concurso, con más de 20 años de experiencia en el campo de la fotografía africana; Will Burrard-Lucas, fotógrafo profesional de naturaleza, Will Travers, experto en vida silvestre, el periodista Oliver Smith, el comediante Hugh Dennis y la famosa presentadora de televisión Kate Humble. El premio en juego es un trofeo artesanal hecho por personas con discapacidad en un taller de Dar es Salaam (Tanzania),además de una semana de safari para dos personas en Kenya.

      I've got an aching head
      Echoes and buzzing noises
      I know the words we said
      But wish I could've turned our voices down
      This is not black and white
      Only organized confusion
      I'm just trying to get it right
      And in spite of all I should've done

      I was not mad at you
      I was not trying to tear you down
      The words that I could've used
      I was too scared to say out loud
      If I cannot break your fall
      I'll pick you up right off the ground
      If you felt invisible, I won't let you feel that now

      You didn't get your way

      You've got a lot to say
      And you just want to know you're being heard
      But this is not black and white
      There are no clear solutions

      I got a long way to go
      And a long memory
      I been searching for an answer
      Always just out of reach
      Blood on the floor
      Sirens repeat
      I been searching for the courage
      To face my enemies
      When they turn down the lights

      [Chorus]
      I hear my battle symphony
      All the world in front of me
      If my armor breaks
      I’ll fuse it back together
      Battle symphony
      Please just don’t give up on me
      And my eyes are wide awake

      [Bridge]
      For my battle symphony
      For my battle symphony

      [Verse 2]
      They say that I don’t belong
      Say that I should retreat
      That I’m marching to the rhythm
      Of a lonesome defeat
      But the sound of your voice
      Puts the pain in reverse
      No surrender, no illusions
      And for better or worse
      When they turn down the lights

      [Chorus]
      I hear my battle symphony
      All the world in front of me
      If my armor breaks
      I’ll fuse it back together
      Battle symphony
      Please just don’t give up on me
      And my eyes are wide awake

      [Bridge]
      If I fall, get knocked down
      Pick myself up off the ground
      If I fall, get knocked down
      Pick myself up off the ground
      When they turn down the lights

      [Chorus]
      I hear my battle symphony
      All the world in front of me
      If my armor breaks
      I’ll fuse it back together
      Battle symphony
      Please just don’t give up on me
      And my eyes are wide awake
      For my battle symphony
      For my battle symphony

      Impact of Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico, public power supply devastated
      PUERTO RICO Besides injury, not one of the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Puerto Rico were affected by what has been described as the most devastating Hurricane in the history of the Carribean.
      Hurricane Maria which made land fall in Puerto Rico as a category 4 storm killed 16 people, Governor Ricardo Rosello of Puerto Rico has said. The hurricane disrupted communication and power supply, effectively cutting off Puerto Rico from civilisation.
      Insured loses is currently put at about $40 to $85 billion. But despite this devastation, Jehovah, their God preserved his people alive. Only one person was injured, the JWs said inna statement.
      “As of September 25, 2017, information from 15 of the 19 circuit overseers in Puerto Rico has been received and only one injury has been reported among our brothers as a result of Hurricane Maria.
      “We have yet to receive updates from the four circuit overseers on the west side of the island, since communication has not been possible. Brothers from nearby circuits have been acquiring motorbikes and all-terrain vehicles in order to travel to the west side to assess the situation”, they said, adding “We continue to keep our dear brothers and sisters in our prayers.—James 5:16”.

      Economic impact
      Estimates of Harvey’s cost vary, with some predicting that the storm will be the most expensive in U.S. history at over $190 billion, surpassing Hurricane Katrina. (The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration estimatesKatrina to have cost around $160 billion.) If that ends up being the case, it would greatly increase the total cost of billion-dollar-plus events since 1980. Others predict that the cost will be closer to that of Superstorm Sandy, at around $70-90 billion.

      [Verse 1]
      I wasn’t just broken, I was shattered
      I trusted you so much, you're all that mattered
      You no longer love me and I sang like a sad bird
      I couldn't move on and I think you were flattered

      [Chorus]
      Oh! Life’s about joy
      Life's about pain
      It's all about forgiving and the will to walk away
      I'm ready to be loved
      And love the way I should
      Life's about
      Life's about to get good

      [Post-Chorus]
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good

      [Verse 2]
      The longer my tears fell, the wider the river
      It killed me that you'd give your life to be with her
      I had to believe that things would get better
      It was time to forget you, forever

      [Chorus]
      Oh! Life’s about joy
      Life's about pain
      It's all about forgiving and the will to walk away
      I'm ready to be loved
      And love the way I should
      Life's about
      Life's about to get good

      [Post-Chorus]
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good

      [Bridge]
      It took me so long to be strong
      But I'm alive, and I hold on
      To what I can feel, it hurts to heal
      Oh, when love lies
      About to get good
      About to get good
      About to get...Ahhh

      [Chorus]
      Oh! Life’s about joy
      Life's about pain
      It's all about forgiving and the will to walk away
      I'm ready to be loved
      And love the way I should
      Life's about
      Life's about to get good

      [Post-Chorus]
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good

      [Outro]
      Oh, life's about joy
      Life's about pain
      Life's about, life's about to get good

      [Verse 1]
      Should've stayed, were there signs, I ignored?
      Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
      We saw brilliance, when the world, was asleep
      There are things that we can have, but can't keep
      [Chorus]
      If they say
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      In the sky of a million stars
      It flickers, flickers
      Who cares when someone's time runs out?
      If a moment is all we are
      Or quicker, quicker
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      Well I do
      [Verse 2 ]
      The reminders, pull the floor from your feet
      In the kitchen, one more chair than you need, oh
      And you're angry, and you should be, it's not fair
      Just 'cause you can't see it, doesn't mean it, isn't there
      [Chorus]
      If they say
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      In the sky of a million stars
      It flickers, flickers
      Who cares when someone's time runs out?
      If a moment is all we are
      Or quicker, quicker
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      Well I do
      [Instrumental + Bridge]
      (I do)
      [Chorus/Outro]
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      In the sky of a million stars
      It flickers, flickers
      Who cares when someone's time runs out?
      If a moment is all we are
      Or quicker, quicker
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      Well I do Well I do

    • ...... some days you pick the strawberries ...... ...... some days the strawberries pick you ....
    • there really shouldn't be, especially if you read the whole sentence I wrote. Here, I'll save you the time from searching for it: I find jw's foolish because they follow the ideas of men, which changes to suit those in the power tower.  lol,   we......lol
    • In my “practical wisdom” mode, not my “world is going to hell in a handbasket” mode, I start my door-to-door presentation with an invitation to consider a practical verse like Matthew 6:25. “Anxiety is a huge concern today. We read about it. We experience it. I want to read you a scripture on that theme, you tell me what you think, and I am out of here. Good idea?” You can throw in a factoid or two from somewhere, like something here from the New York Times, but I usually pass. You are looking for people with whom the idea resonates, and if it doesn’t, the New York Times will not convince them that it should.  An affirmative answer to my offer will earn the householder the reading of Matthew 6:25. “On this account I [Jesus] say to you: Stop being anxious about your lives as to what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your bodies as to what you will wear. Does not life mean more than food and the body than clothing?” “That’s all I wanted to do,” I will say, “to get this notion on the table—that anxiety is something that you might hope to just “stop it.” He doesn’t say, don’t start being anxious. He assumes his listeners already are. He says ‘Stop it.’  The next move is the householder’s, and I tell him that he doesn’t have to make one. “If the subject piques interest, if you have views if you.....” and so forth. If he doesn’t (and even if he does), I will leave a tract—any of them will do—and call attention to the jw.org website and what is to be found there. If they do, then conversation might go a hundred different ways. Even so, I do not press every moment to stay. Rather, I offer every moment to leave. Even some lengthy conversations I have cut them sort, to the householder’s  protest. “Yes, you say it now,” I observe, “but after I go you will say, “Man! I wanted to get some stuff done today, and then this Bible guy showed up!” Maybe I have grown sensitive to all the concerns of those who cry over “manipulation,” and so I am determined to not even give the appearance of going there. Of course, the extremists among these ones are babies to whom introducing any idea not mainstream is “manipulation,”—they decry all “brainwashing” except for the brainwashing that is theirs—and there is not much one can do about that, but I try not to attract the charge like a magnet. I can hear Anthony Morris giving the talk now at the 2016 Regional Convention in Atlanta. I wasn’t there—I was at another convention—but the talk was streamed. “‘Stop it!’ Jesus says. Just ‘stop it!’ as though addressing a child—and that was the idea that he went on to develop, that it was a controllable emotion. It was a meaningful talk for me. Anxiety had proven to be a weakness for me —it afflicts some in the family—and when I was hit with a perfect storm of calamities, I did not blame humans like JTR does. I did worse and blamed God.  Believe me, I envy those brothers—I have met a lot of them—who say: “I’ve never worried a day in my life!” To be sure, that envy is tempered by the fact that some of these characters caused plenty of others to worry, and even when it was not so, they had other weaknesses to compensate or even more than compensate. We are all “pieces of work” in one way or another. I also know quite a few who, by choice, live very close to the wire. They have structured their lives that way. It is deliberate. They have determined to “make use of the world, but not use it to the full.” (1 Corinthians 7:31) They have decided to go light as to material things. The ideal among Jehovah’s Witnesses—which some have attained and some have not—is to acquire a skill that pays well, and then do as little of it as possible so as to have as large a share as possible in the kingdom proclamation work. I am not one of those people, either, but I sort of envy them, as the modern manifestation of Paul, who knew “how to be low on provisions and how to have an abundance. In everything and in all circumstances I have learned the secret of both how to be full and how to hunger, both how to have an abundance and how to do without.” - Philippians 4:12  These ones will crinkle a fender on their car and ask God what to do about it, since there’s no money in the budget for the mishap. What is God going to do about it? Time and again persons I know well have reported such things—they take it to God in prayer—and presently the answer presents itself in totally unanticipated ways, sometimes very unlikely ones. They thereafter attribute it to God’s spirit. Am I going to tell them that they are wrong? Why would I do that? How do I know? It is more likely—when you hear such things again and again—that they are right. I do what Mary did, with regard to different experiences: “Mary began to preserve all these sayings, drawing conclusions in her heart.” (Luke 2:19) Maybe they’ll do me some good someday, the same way they did her. Key is the confidence of 1 John 5:14: “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that no matter what we ask according to his will, he hears us.” For it to work it must be “according to his will.” It seems that it will be very hard to dictate to someone else just how holy spirit is supposed to work. Almost by definition, you cannot. It is the wind of John 3:8 that you feel but cannot see. It is the angels that the cosmonauts did not see—and so concluded from that experience that there was no God. No, it operates as it operates and is one of those “taste and see” sort of things.  
    • Twyla, Thanks always for the biweekly spiritual food. Enjoy your day and week.
    • I think I didn’t miss a thing. You are either doing something unmentionable or you are making your escape—and not a moment too soon. Besides, I just made that line up myself. If it turns out that movie plagiarized it, they’ve got a major lawsuit on their hands.
    • Does that mean Jesus got his drivers license when he was 31?
