thanks to my followers who like my blog, I am glad I am putting stuff on here that isn’t boring. my brother is really sweet telling me how much he likes my blog and consider the information so enjoyable he brought it up on his own, thanks Jeff. your just to sweet to me.
I am glad your surgury went so well, as for my other followers thanks again, remember I am not a genius (as per my brothers comment), I am just a mirror. what is a mirror and why would I compare myself as such?
I thought about this today, a mirror reflects whatever light hits it and images it reflects. as a new born baby we are born with just the basics of hunger, ability to learn things, and natural fears of falling etc, these basics we are all born with, a clean slate as it were otherwise.
so for me I want to reflect the qualitis and knowledge and wisdom of Jehovah, he is the smartest person in the universe and the wisest ever and i would call him a suppperrrrrrrrrr genius!!! (ever watch wily coyote and the roadrunner?)so what does this have to do with mirrors? well we are all a clean slate we can decide what light and images we want to reflect for others to see (and even see ourselves too). we choose who we want to reflect, imitate and show the world. Think about the expressions, you have a bright outlook on life, your a ray of sunshine when I am down (or as a song says I have sunshine on a cloudy day, when it is cold outside I have the month of may) your a real downer to be around, or some one woke up on the wrong side of the bed, or like the poor donkey on winnie the poo with a dark cloud falling him around and his face reflects gloominess.
So who do you reflect? how do others perceive you? (well those who know you well)who do you want to reflect? I seen some guy wanted to reflect tigers, why? dont know but his whole body was tattoed stripps his face and he had his teeth done with fangs. so what does such a person reflect about the kind of person they are? why do he admire tigers so much to want to be one? (to reflect as a mirror that animal?)only he and those around him can answer that one. but if I run into someone like that my first reation would be like weird and then I would cringe away from him because tigers are predators. Simply because he is reflecting what he is worshipping.
So any reflection on my part of showing forbearnace or kindness or understanding is simply because I worship Jehovah. I am going to say this and hope it doesn’t sound weird but I think Jehovah is awesome and find it puzzling when people do not want to learn about him after you hear so many positive comments by non witnesses about the witnesses. They really admire jw are honest on the job, care about their neighbors, take jesus word seriously about preaching and teaching door to door and home bible studies (which are free by the way)honest in all their dealings, do not leach off others, do not steal and are kind to people. And refuse to take up arms against their fellow man even at the threat of death for disobedience to governments on this point. Always remember if someone has a gut reation of seemingly lack of desire to kill others for the sake of protecting america from some enemy, if a witness wont kill another person in another country who might kill them (so the gov tries to sell people on)they wont kill you. So think about that for a moment. You wont have to worry about a JW murdering you during times of chaos (think rwanda).
So we have a choice whom do you want to reflect? Is it a person who deserves your admiration? Are the qualities you want virtuous and kind or logical or of sound wisdom or reason.?
