Is It My Place Or Not

This entry is not written in my word processor “Works”

Okay…this has been bugging me since December 25, 2010 (2 days ago). To be very honest here and now, what I am about to share is something that should have been kept private between two people actually as what two people – a couple – is NONE of my in business. Okay…here it goes – not having a whole lot of time before KH gets here to help me with my shower this morning within an hour or so but I do believe I will not see here until closer to 10 a.m…oh well. Not in the rush this morning actually. Okay…I know I am rambling but now I am definitely going to say…

here it goes… LOL

The other day a neighbor called. Her name is LS. She has a man-friend named MW I do not trust and many other tenants are afraid of because he does not keep his hands off at times. In fact, a tenant, who is also a “client” of IDS, was touched by MW one time and she did, I believe, report it. Anyway…off the subject now and getting back on it before I ramble further… LS called to wish me a Merry Christmas and then started going into detail about MW staying over at her place the other night … telling her it is none of my business what she and MW do in their relationship … and she also said that they did not do anything. Her saying that gave me the impression otherwise. I thought this was crazy to hear about and their relationship is volatile and LS should not be in a relationship with any man at all because of her ability to understand about relationships but she is in her 50’s and a grownup no doubt. I am not in a relationship myself for personal reasons and I will not ever doubt God’s plan of having a gentleman in my life but right now I do not have a relationship with the opposite sex now and do not intend to have one for a long time. I do love the singleness of my life and world anyway. This relationship that LS and MW does bug me and I think it should not exist at all but this is not “is it my place or not” that really bothers me right now. LS said something else that bothers me most and what I am about to say next is something that is questionable of faith and religion of those who believe in Jehovah’s Witnesses. I have friends who are Jehovah’s Witnesses and got an understanding of their faith and beliefs when I was 12 years old or so but had a better understanding of the faith and beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses when I was 15 years old.

MW is a Jehovah’s Witness and LS wants to become a witness in their faith. I won’t – not because of the beliefs are so different from ours … because they aren’t actually in my way of thinking – but because I have grown in the Catholic faith for 16 years, Baptist faith since I was 16 years old, and now a Seventh-day Adventist. All three faiths are … instilled in me now. I have been to kingdom halls many times in since I was 15 years old. MW has been seen by me…celebrating the holidays with LS. This year LS took MW to a relatives to have Christmas dinner. MW has been going to dinners held by the Salvation Army, Echo, and other churches in our area. I am not sure if it is my place or not to call someone who is a Jehovah’s Witness to report of MW’s unfaithfulness of the Jehovah’s Witness faith. I feel he has not using discretion and putting Jehovah’s Witnesses to shame. I have gone to meetings and conventions throughout the years to understand that the Jehovah’s Witnesses are strong in their beliefs and have their understanding of the Bible as others outside their faith have an understanding. i will never turn my Jehovah’s Witness faith friends away now even though I do not agree with a few of their beliefs or will I become a witness myself. I have seen many people who profess to be Christians falter and become lost along the way of their walk to know Christ. I know I am not perfect in that aspect either myself. What should I do? I am feeling stuck between a rock and a hard place right now and I am debating on calling a dear friend of mine to share my concerns and ask questions before I call it ratting on anyone in the Jehovah’s Witness faith – in this case ratting on MW.

I will write more later using my word processor … I had to write the entry above before it ate me alive anymore than it has since Christmas Day evening around the dinner hour. Thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts, feelings, and experiences of my world and life of today and always. I do feel tons better now that my thoughts are out in the open and my world is still going on as it always had from the past onward. It can be a cruel world out there at times … believe me. In Christ, I will overcome everything that comes my way of persecution…right? Right! More later… I am going to say goodbye for now though. I still have the day to live!
