On my own, walking in the mountains.

As Jesus tells Mack in the book, He finds us. When we look for God He reveals himself to us.
And sometimes he reveals Himself even when are not looking for Him. Those encounters are the best kind. ;)

We have some Jehovah witnesses who have been coming by to talk to us. We enjoy the inter-action with them. Don't worry about us being converted.

It's great when you know enough to carry on a conversation with Jehovah's Witnesses. I wouldn't know what to say to them.

I'm the same Cathy! I just end up getting annoyed, because they interpret the Bible to suit their own ways.

Actually they use a different Bible. The changes are slight but enough to change the meaning. When they came by to talk to me I requested that we use the Greek interlineary for Biblical references and the my Jewish old testament. They didn't want to talk.
It is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me.
