Recommended Posts

But @James Thomas Rook Jr.  ....they can simply turn to the book of Job and be encouraged by reading about all the trials Job endured and how Jehovah lovingly solved all his problems in the end. For instance he replaced all of Job's 10 children who died when the family house collapsed on them. Job's already aged wife, had the privilege of spending at least the next 10-15 years of her life, pregnant so Jehovah could fix the tragedy by giving them10 new children....what a logical solution and what blessing it was for all concerned.

P.S I understand that the new "Silver Sword" edition of the New World Translation, also serves as a flotation device.

My understanding is if they establish a relief fund, the money has to be spend for that purpose without discrimination; they will have to include the dreaded "worldly people" in the effort.

If they do it just for general funds, then they can do whatever they want with the $$$$.

Oh and - did we tell you that SOME of your donations might be going to pay out child abuse lawsuits instead of hurricane victims ? Sorry if we failed to mention that. We're imperfect- so don't hold it against us.

Sending our warm Christian love,

your brothers WTB&S. "

I got a good belly laugh out of THAT one.  But then again, my grandmother had 11 children, and cried when she couldn't have more ... perhaps men are not supposed to understand how women think.

Job's wife did all that without dying ... many women have died having their first child.

      Watchtower volunteers restore a historic building free of charge.
      Gardiner City Hall arranged by the watchtower volunteers
      The Historic City Hall of Gardiner has just received a change of face from the volunteers of the watchtower society. In a civic demonstration, the tax-exempt religious organization provided free labor to the city to wash, repair, bait and paint the entire exterior of the building.
      "they did an amazing job", said the mayor of the city, Marybeth Majestic, at the 8 August meeting.
      Built in 1875 as a single-room school and expanded in 1895, the Queen Anne style structure continued to serve on Gardiner as a primary school until 1981. was added to the national register of historic places in 2000 and He suffered a major renovation in 2005 the watchtower project repainted the old white window in a more historically authentic forest seen in ancient photographs
      Majestic noted that the city council remained open to the public during the normal hours of service during the project. "his security measures were max", he said. She estimated that Gardiner's town hall would have had to pay about $ 40.000 for the job if the workforce had not been donated. About $ 6000 in the cost of materials were covered by a dedicated fund that the city had booked several years ago for maintenance and repairs to the city council.
      " I'm very grateful to our friends and neighbors of watchtower for an amazing job done."

    • Eventually it happens to everyone. As we age, even if we're healthy, the heart becomes less flexible, more stiff and just isn't as efficient in processing oxygen as it used to be. In most people the first signs show up in the 50s or early 60s. And among people who don't exercise, the underlying changes can start even sooner. "The heart gets smaller — stiffer," says Dr. Ben Levine, a sports cardiologist at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and director of the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, in Dallas. Think of the heart muscle as a rubber band, Levine says. In the beginning, the rubber band is flexible and pliable. But put it in a drawer for 20 years and it will emerge dry and brittle. "That's what happens to the heart and blood vessels," he says. And down the road, that sort of stiffness can get worse, he notes, leading to the breathlessness and other symptoms of heart failure, an inability of the heart to effectively pump blood to the lungs or throughout the body. Fortunately for those in midlife, Levine is finding that even if you haven't been an avid exerciser, getting in shape now may head off that decline and help restore your aging heart. He and his colleagues published their recent findings in the American Heart Association's journal, Circulation. The research team recruited individuals between the ages of 45 and 64 who were mostly sedentary but otherwise healthy. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2018/03/12/591513777/hearts-get-younger-even-at-middle-age-with-exercise
    • Who else is watching this serie?  I do since it is based on history. I like Darren Criss performance here.  I think that if the series would have been named "Andrew Cunanan" wouldn't be so attractive as it is when mentioning Gianni Versace. I'm amazed how serial killers lie a lot, disguise and end up killing sometimes their loved ones. 
    • Despite warnings from experts, older people are using
      more anti-anxiety and sleep medications, putting
      them at risk of serious side effects and even overdoses. At first, the pills helped her feel so much better. Jessica Falstein, an artist living in the East Village in Manhattan, learned she had an anxiety disorder in 1992. It led to panic attacks, a racing pulse, sleeplessness. “Whenever there was too much stress, the anxiety would become almost intolerable, like acid in the veins,” she recalled. When a psychopharmacologist prescribed the drug Klonopin, everything brightened. “It just leveled me out,” Ms. Falstein said. “I had more energy. And it helped me sleep, which I was desperate for.” After several months, however, the horrible symptoms returned. “My body became accustomed to half a milligram, and the drug stopped working,” she said. “So then I was up to one milligram. And then two.” Her doctor kept increasing the dosage and added Ativan to the mix. Now 67, with her health and stamina in decline, Ms. Falstein has been diligently working to wean herself from both medications, part of the class called benzodiazepines that is widely prescribed for insomnia and anxiety. “They turn on you,” she said. For years, geriatricians and researchers have sounded the alarm about the use of benzodiazepines among older adults. Often called “benzos,” the problem drugs include Valium (diazepam), Klonopin (clonazepam), Xanax (alprazolam) and Ativan (lorazepam). The cautions have had scant effect: Use of the drugs has risen among older people, even though they are particularly vulnerable to the drugs’ ill effects. Like Ms. Falstein, many patients take them for years, though they’re recommended only for short periods. The chemically related “z-drugs” — Ambien, Sonata and Lunesta — present similar risks. Now the opioid epidemic has generated fresh warnings, because pain relievers like Vicodin (hydrocodone with Tylenol) and OxyContin (oxycodone) are also frequently prescribed for older people. When patients take both, they’re at risk for overdosing. Read more: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/16/health/elderly-drugs-addiction.html
