Tomb of the Unknown ChristmasOur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

      I looked at this and went into a profanity laced tirade. The only way monsters like that will ‘shut me down’ is by killing me, and that’s a fact. If these morons want to push this any farther, they had best be ready for the reaction, because it ain’t gonna be pretty and it’s going to cost them dearly.
      It would really be smart for them to get a grasp on their own stupidity and unreasoning emotion laced way of looking at the world and smell the damn roses before they push this garbage past the point of no return. I’ve seen a lot of foolishness out of them, especially this week, but this is just a superlative specimen.

    There is something about this election and Presidency/Trump that is drawing me closer to God. I have no idea why but it is real.

    Wondering if anyone else has experienced this as well.

    Also wondering if anyone is noticing any negative happenings – even small – to those who stand in Trump’s way. Like Obama’s plane being unable to land in Palm Springs – just what seem to be small signs. I’m starting to think it’s all in my head.

      Perhaps Jimmy Jack, it is because we seeing God’s work up-close and in real time. This adds another dimension to our faith, seeing miracles being fulfilled by God’s will, in answer to our prayers. When our prayers are aligned with God’s will, miracles do happen. All glory, honor and praise are due our wonderful Lord.

      I know how you feel. I never believed in elemental evil (Satan) until I looked into obama’s eyes.
      And now, what is happening seems a genuine miracle, something that only could come from divine intervention. Eighteen months ago I basically had no hope…I thought we were gone.
      These things do seem to point to very real Powers beyond us.

      It’s not in your head! We are all privileged to see a genuine move of God. The next step will be spiritual. I heard two Pastors say to make America great again the people have to be good. The only Person Who can make someone good is Jesus. By receiving His gift of salvation starts the process. He is the One Who will make you good.

            I love the Corvidae family of birds. They usually make a lot of noise, but are known for being very intelligent and fierce in how they love and protect one another. Something we humans need to learn from them!

            Betty, a Crow in England, proved back in 2002 that she was the smartest animal in the world next to humans. Ravens were the first bird mentioned in the Bible, and God used them to feed Elijah when he was in the wilderness. God’s designs are fabulous to see! Like you, so glad you are here!

        Dear Jacqueline Taylor Robson,

        His name was Horation G. Spafford. Intending to vacation with his family in Europe (1873), he was, however, delayed by urgent business. He sent his wife ahead with their four daughters (aged 11, 9, 7, and 2). During the trip, their ship, the S.S. Ville du Harve, was struck by another ship, the Loch Earn. 226 people perished, among them the Spafford’s daughters. Mrs. Spaffrod wired her husband: “Saved alone.”

        Mr. Spafford left immediately for England. As the ship on which he sailed passed the approximate location of where the little ones died, he in immense grief and yet full faithfulness in the love and goodness of God, composed one our most cherished Christian hymns: “When Peace Like a River.”

        Praying the Lord grant and keep you in such peace as the world cannot understand.

      a nice bit of reading:
      Breitbart has, on the National Security tab, a great article, with lots of pictures, of Christian work being done in Syria and Kurdistan. I know David personally, and this work is absolutely the work of God.
      He operates Free Burma Rangers, website link at end of Breitbart article, and felt a call to Syria…he and his are now there, and can be followed on FBR website.
      This is just tremendous exposure for this wonderful work, which you will never hear about, this upright and blessed work and workers.
      David says many many of the people they help are open to the One True God, and are softened to The Gospel by virtue of the reality of their daily lives.
      Praise God for the courage lent to these folks by God. Please pray for their safety.

    Seattle voters get $100 in Democracy Vouchers
    January 03, 2017

    SEATTLE – More than half a million Democracy Vouchers will be mailed out to registered voters in Seattle Tuesday. $100 worth of vouchers will go to registered voters and will help fund participating candidate’s campaigns in the city council and city attorney’s elections in 2017.

    The Democracy Voucher program came as a result of a vote for a property tax increase in 2015. That increase funded the program that hopes to help bring out the best candidates for the top public offices in this city.

    Each registered voter will get $100 assigned to their name, and if they do not use it, they lose it. You can only give your donation to participating candidates who take all the proper steps to run for office.

    This is sad news. I don’t know how many of you are familiar with Rich Conaty, but Hubby and I listen to his radio program all the time. We have a lot of the shows recorded and listen to them at night before going to sleep, or play them in the car on long trips. I guess not many people outside NY know him, but Hubby and I feel as if we have lost an old friend. 😦

    Rich Conaty, longtime host of WFUV-FM’s (90.7) “The Big Broadcast,” died Dec. 30 in Catskill, N.Y., after a battle with cancer. He was 62.

    The station released the following statement: “Rich was a fixture at WFUV for more than four decades, beginning as a Fordham student. A kid from Queens with a passion for the jazz and popular music of the ’20s and ’30s, he chose Fordham because it had a good radio station, and he made it better every day that he was here.”

    • I feel for you. I remember when a beloved co-worker passed away and I was working in a different area I cried. I think my other co-workers had even made sure I was sitting down when they told me. And as I’m learning now after my husband passed away a day before your friend that when you mourn the loss of a loved one, you remember and mourn the other friends and family members that had passed away.

      I suggest doing something in your friends honor. It does help.

    President Trump’s “America First” Inauguration speech has been parodied in a comedy video from the Netherlands.

    A news satire show, Zondag Met Lubach, released a fake tourism advertisement aimed at Trump. It’s worth watching past the trite, Trump-bashing introduction in Dutch for the hilarity that then ensures in English (the very best language).

    This is actually for the most part is funny , all in good fun.

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
