  1. Hello to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! Wow, what a year 2020, were having! First,  were told that we can't shake hands with my brothers,and  the sisters greet me with a kiss on the cheek, then we have to e!bow bump! And before and after the meetings, we have to disinfect all the chairs, and surfaces! Now, we stopped attending our beautiful kingdom halls! We now have our meetings, and our field service morning service on Zoom! At first,  we had to listen to JW stream! I really love talking to my University Hills Congregation on Zoom! We talk as long as we can,before and after the meetings! I never thought we would have our Memorial this year on Zoom! We had 88 on Zoom, with a total of 190 in attendance! We also listened to the morning worship program in Bethel by one of our governing body members, another brother,  gave the Memorial Discourse! Some of us had the precious Memorial Emblems on their beautiful tables! I always love the Memorial Campaign too! But due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we had to stop cart witnessing, door-to-door, and start letter writing or telephone witnessing! I'm still waiting for some sisters to join me in telephone witnessing!!! Sadly, in the United States, 9,000 of our Brothers have contracted the Corona Virus, 2,500 have recovered, which is good news,563, are hospitalized, which is bad news, and 219 have fallen asleep in death! Soon we will see our beloved Brothers and Sisters again, when all of our loved ones are resurrected! I wore a mask today for the first time, just to go grocery shopping at Kroger! I was able to get the last six pack of toilet paper, now there's plenty of meat, plenty of paper towels, but I heard disinfecting supplies are hard to find! I would like to add one more thing, there are some kind, caring people in this wicked system of things! Today, at self-check, this very sweet young lady paid for my groceries today with her debit card! I was in shock, so was the lady in the self-check out! I had the money,  she said can I pay for your groceries? I said I have the money, she said put your money away, I've had some hard times, and I want to do this for you! The lady in self- check out said " Awww"  I asked her name, and told her my name, I told her I wish I could hug you, so we gave each other air hugs! She was afraid I would be offended, and I said No,not at all, just shocked! What a wonderful human being displaying an act of kindness to a stranger she never met! I went to my car, and cried, and thanked Jehovah for this very unexpected meeting this wonderful young lady,  and his blessing!  My niece's aide said another lady at Walmart, bought another ladies groceries for her too! Jehovah provides us with everything we need! Trust in Jehovah! Stay safe all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! I did receive my stimulus check too, , and extra food stamps!! Agape love, Shirley

  2. This brings back some precious memories for me! The first drive in movie I went to was in San Antonio, where I used to live until I was 14 years old! You had to put the speaker on your window to hear the movie showing at the time! The movie showing then was OLD YELLER, and SNOW WHITE and THE SEVEN DWARFS! I have the original movie of OLD YELLER on VCR tape, and the original poster from SNOW WHITE and THE SEVEN DWARFS!
  3. I did use them for my cough and a sore throat, but they were so good, I ate them like candy!!
  4. I experience pain everyday in my right hip, it's worse in the wintertime! I used to use a cane, now I have to use a roller walker! I have trouble sleeping on my right hip, so I am trying to get used to sleeping on my left hip! I have problems walking, or standing long periods of time! Since 2013, I haven't had the money to afford health insurance to get a right hip replacement operation! I had Parkland Plus hospital insurance, but as one of Jehovah's Witnesses, I refused to have a blood transfusion, I also showed them twice, my Medical Document, so they refused to operate on me, twice, unles
  5. I was 25 1/2 years old, and my oldest daughter was born on February 16, 1983! She turns 37 years old next February!
  6. The Bee Gees at the Tarrant County Convention Center in 1979! I found out I was pregnant with my oldest son who turns 40 next year! He was born on March 6, 1980! Also, Charlene Tilton (Lucy) from DALLAS was in the audience! I went over to get her autograph, so did other people, when we noticed she was sitting in her seat, but then the Concert started! I still have the original ticket from the Bee Gees Concert! Great Memories!!! I also have the original Bee Gees Record Albums- THE BEE GEES GREATEST (1979) and THE ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK FROM SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER and a CD from the BEE GEES, when R
  7. Hello to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! This year of 2019 is going by so fast!  I know we don't celebrate birthdays, but, I  just turned 62, and I'm retired now, my oldest granddaughter just turned 16, my youngest daughter turns 22 tomorrow! My youngest granddaughter just turned 3! I've been so busy attending two Weddings, one on September 27, 2019! The other one was on October 12, 2019!  Now their Spiritual Husband and Wife! I'm so happy for them! I hope one day, my Spiritual Husband will find me! Sadly, we had so much passing away of our Spiritual Brother's Mother, now his sister! Another Sister lost her Sister, also a Regular Pioneer! Then my Field Service Group Overseer's wife lost her father, the following week her Uncle, and then a cousin, and just last week another cousin!  We just lost our beloved Elderly Sister on Wednesday, October 16, 2019!  She was baptized in 1984, a Regular Pioneer, and I was privileged to work in Field Service with her, and she wanted to have another tea party, and just talk among each other, while enjoying our Spiritual Association together! Also, we took photos of us helping serve The LDC luncheon in April, when they renovated our beautiful kingdomhall!  I was able to go to view her one last time  at the Funeral Home, on Friday, October 25, 2019!  We had her beautiful Memorial on Saturday, October 26, 2019!  Our kingdomhall was filled with her family, and all those who loved her, including me! She was known for her tea parties and she had the Field Service Group meet at her home! She loved wearing hats! The sisters who were able to attend one of her tea parties, all gathered around her picture at her Memorial and everyone took photos!  We have 3 newly baptized Jehovah's Witnesses in our congregation! Two sisters who are sisters, and one brother! I'm patiently waiting on my hearing to see if they approve my disability benefits! Also, I received a phonecall from Social Security, and I may be able to get my first ex- husband's Social Security benefits! So I just keep busy, every Saturday go out in Field Service, and work with different ones in my congregation!  I've been at my congregation now one year! I love all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters in my congregation, and they love me! I was able to go to our State Fair! I saw a Special Metropolitan Witness Cart on the way to the Fair! I drove my car to the Train Station, and rode the train to the Fair!  My oldest daughter has been hospitalized since June! I was able to visit her twice! They finally found out what she had! Some type of infection through out her body! My oldest son, and youngest daughter keep me informed about their sister! They live in Plano, and visit her more often!  I hope everyone is doing ok! May Jehovah bless all of you! Agape love, Shirley! P.S I hope 2020 is a good year for you! 😀

      Hello to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! Here's an update on my oldest daughter! My son called me last night and told me she's been moved to another room, and she's getting better each day! I poured my heart out to Jehovah to watch over her, she came very close to dying! Jehovah comforted me all this time, I never knew from one day to the next, whether she was getting better or getting worse! I give all my thanks and  I trust in Jehovah, with all my heart! No matter what we go through, good times and bad times, all we have to do is always trust in Jehovah, he will never let us suffer more than we can bear as human beings! Agape love, Shirley!!!😂

  8. Hello  to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters, it's been awhile since I was on here, I have so much to tell you! I attended all three days of my 2019 " LOVE NEVER FAILS" REGIONAL CONVENTION on July 19-21, also on August 25th, Sunday, at Irving Convention Center in Irving, Texas! We have 35 new spiritual brothers and sisters, including The Swahili Group! One young black brother from my former congregation was baptized! One young black Swahili Sister had to be baptized three times! Her hair piece was keeping her from being completely submerged under water, even the last time to baptize her, the Brother had to hold her hairpiece! No one laughed at her horrible experience,  but they turned off the monitor. I wish I could have met her in person, the expression on her face was priceless, she had the look of happiness,of becoming one of Jehovah's Witnesses! We had over 3,000 everyday, and on Sunday, we had over 4,000, which also included the Swahili Group! This was the first time for the Swahili Group to attend our Convention!  They didn't announce the exact count on Sunday, so I went directly to the Brothers, and I asked several Brothers, why didn't they announce how many were baptized on Sunday! One of the Brothers who helped baptize everyone, told me that they miscounted, and thought they were 39 that were baptized, but they counted them again, and 35 was the actual count including The Swahili Group!   We also tied into the Toronto, Canada International Convention! A very sweet sister from my Congregation who is an anesthesiologist gave me a prescription for my handicapped placard! So I had to use it all three days, and that Sunday too! I love it so much, it's a blessing from Jehovah, now I can legally  park in handicapped spaces at the stores! This year I had to use my roller walker, We were able to go in first at 8:00 a. m. if you had a walker, or in a wheelchair! I just love that provision from Jehovah!   I sat in the Elderly and Infirmed Section, all three days of my Convention! But On August 25th, I had to sit in another section, but the Brothers were so loving and helpful to me!  My right hip is getting worse, and soon I 'll need to get a right hip replacement, after my car is paid off, which will be soon! On July 29, 2019, it's been 47 years since I was baptized! I just retired from working, and now at 62 years of age, I'm getting my early retirement benefits now, since June 12, 2019! Everyday,  I took a photo in front of each day's theme for that day! On Sunday,  I was going to take a photo after the program was over, but they turned off the Monitor! So, on August 25, 2019, I attended that Sunday, and so happy I did! I was able to take my photo in front of Sunday's theme! Also, I  saw my niece, and my great-niece, whom I haven't seen in three years, since her great-grandfather's Memorial Service on December 10, 2016! After I ate my lunch, I went to see my Spiritual  Sister's from my former Congregation! I was so happy to see them, and especially happy to see the Elderly Spiritual Sister who pioneered with my Mother in the 1940's! She and her husband are in their 90's and still faithfully serving Jehovah! We tied into the Phoenix International Convention, and we listened to Br. Samuel Herd, who I met in person and took a photo with, in 2006! I've been attending University Hills Congregation in Irving, Texas,  now for one year! August 2018, I started attending there!  My name was added to the Congregation Field Service Groups, 4 months later! I love everyone there, and they love me, especially  the young children, I usually give them candy or gummy bears, in return for a hug! They always see me at every meeting, out in Field Service, every Saturday, and I even comment at the meetings! I  gave my first talk there in  January of 2019! Everyone complimented me on my talk, and when I make comments! I always give my best to Jehovah!   Two of the young black sisters, who are real sisters, are getting baptized at our Circuit Assembly on October 5, 2109!   I filed for my disability benefits again! I'm leaving everything up to Jehovah, if it is according to his will!  I'm still living with my niece, until my disability benefits are approved, or if my housing comes through! I even received a $3 raise on my Food Stamps!  Yes, I'm not ashamed to admit, I'm getting welfare assistance from the government! I think Jehovah would approve! We pay taxes, so we are entitled to Government Assistance, only if we need it! Some of our Spiritual Brothers, and Spiritual Sisters, have not attended their Conventions, yet, so I can't reveal anything else about our Convention, just wait and see! You'll love every minute your there! My prayers are with everyone who has been affected by the recent Tropical Storm, Imelda in Houston, Texas! May Jehovah watch over them and their families! I love all my Spiritual Family!! I forgot to tell you that my youngest daughter, just received her Associates Degree in the mail yesterday! As her Mother, I'm so proud of her!  I'm getting ready to upload my 2019 " LOVE NEVER Fails" Regional  Convention photos now!! Agape Love, Shirley

  9. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters, I have a new job, that pays 50 cents less, but I love my new client, and her best friend is one of Jehovah's Witnesses!  Jehovah is taking good care of me! I also started driving for LYFT! It helps me have a little extra money too!! I just uploaded my beautiful Mothers photo! She taught us 6 children to grow to love Jehovah!  She was a Regular Pioneer, and such a very faithful lover of Jehovah!  On July 29, 1972, 46 years ago, my deceased sister and I dedicated our lives to serve Jehovah! Sadly, 15 years ago, my beautiful Mother passed away, and it was a very emotional day for  me!  My sister too, 3 months later! I look forward to welcoming them back, as well as all my loved ones soon in the resurrection Jehovah has promised us!   Our Circuit Assembly was on September 9, 2018!  We have 8 new brothers and sisters! Two of the sisters were from my former Congregation, Dallas West English!  We had 1, 343 for the morning attendance, and 1, 361 for the afternoon attendance!  Since August 1, 2018, I moved in with my niece because she's having open heart surgery soon!   I'm now attending University Hills Congregation! Everyone is welcoming me now!  My publishers card is on it's way! I was so nervous at first to attend a different Congregation, but I'm starting to feel the spiritual love from everyone there! They greet me now and I'm commenting at the meetings, and I've went out in the field service with a few sisters and brothers! The State Fair of Texas starts on September 28-October 21st! Last year was a great success, so their having Dallas West English as the Hub, again! I'm not able to share in the cart witnessing this year either! You have to stand for two hours, and because of my right hip hurting, I'm unable to stand that long! I always give 100% to Jehovah! I have my disability exam on Monday, I pray to Jehovah, if it's his will I'm able to receive my disability check! Well I guess this is enough news for now, my prayers are with everyone suffering from Hurricane Florence, and also all my spiritual brothers and sisters world-wide! Agape love, Shirley!?
