hubby has just come back from the service meeting where they have been handed out brand new style blood cards, now called 'advance decision to refuse specified medical treatment' .
it's quite a bit different.
and has the line on it about giving permission to the hospital liason committee to see your notes and medical records.. very scary stuff i think, and i certainly wont be filling one in.. i'm really short of time tonight, but will scan it in, along with the notes that go with it and try and post it some time over the next day or so if someone else doesn't beat me to it!.

hi guys, new!
and i'm sure this has been covered, but i find the site has no search for me to look, so sorry if you've discussed it to death.
for the first time last night i came across information about 586 being the actual year jerusalem was destroyed.

hi everyone, totally new here.
and still associating with jws... have been baptised 23 years, that was at the tender age of 13 when i had absolutely no idea what i was doing.
i have always been considered a rebel...brought up in a family by a single parent, my two brothers are both elders, the younger being a regular pioneer, my sister a regular pioneer and serving in a foreign language congregation.

so last night we had the last book study at our house, next week all the congregations change around and i asked for it to be moved.
so i sat in on it, and afterwards we had a bit of a 'party'.
felt quite emotional really, although i haven't answered for a long time i put my hand up to read a scripture just so i could mark the last time i did this.

can anyone help me find the link to the wt 2005 cd, i've been reliably informed it's on the site somewhere for download,
i asked my little brother and he got all interested and asked which article i wanted to look at and he could bring round the files if i wanted..lol
didn't like to tell him somehow my 2005 wts ended up in a garden bonfire, not sure how they got there!!!!

ok, very interested to know, for those of you that still have a faith, and it seems many do.
what do you refer to god as?
is jehovah correct, is it not, is it too associated with jws for you to carry on doing that?

feeling pretty smug.. a couple of months ago i cancelled my dd to the society.
i have since been waiting to be struck by lightening, but as that hasn't happened, and i do feel i want to donate something, but wanted this time to think more carefully about it.
today i decided on my charity and set up a dd.

so, i found out today that my whole family, that is mother, older brother wife and child, older sister and husband, younger brother and wife have gone away together for a week.. previously i would have been right in the center of all that.
this time i didn't even know until after they'd gone.
cant say it doesn't hurt, what a punch to the gut.
