Sunday March 19th – Open Thread

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 †

    God’s Army and the War

    We look at the world all around us,
    And we see all the evil and say,
    There’s a war between men in this world,
    The good men fight, keeping evil at bay.

    We think there’s a heavy burden on us,
    This fight that may engulf you or me,
    But the struggle is not against flesh and blood,
    Though it’s armies of men that we see.

    This war and the armies are much bigger;
    But men of this world are not the source.
    We fight against powers of this dark world,
    And their evil spiritual force.

    Elisha, God’s prophet, warned Israel’s king
    Of the Arameans plans to attack.
    So Aram’s king sent his army at night,
    Surrounding Elisha. He’d never get back.

    Elisha’s servant rose early that day,
    And saw they were trapped, all hemmed in.
    “I’m afraid, Elisha, what shall we do?”
    Elisha answered, perhaps with a grin:

    Don’t be afraid, was what the prophet said,
    Those with us are much more than that army.
    And Elisha prayed to our and his God,
    “O Lord, open his eyes and let him see!”

    Then the servant looked, looked up and saw
    Hills full of horses, chariots of fire;
    A huge army of angels, sent by God,
    All protecting Elisha and his squire.

    God’s got the power; He’s in control.
    His forces will win in this evil war.
    All will proceed according to His plan,
    With Him, we’ll be victors, and much more.

    What shall we say to all of these things?
    If God is for us, then who can oppose?
    Should we sit back and leave it all to God,
    Trusting in His Son, Who died and arose?

    We run the race and must fight the good fight,
    Strong in the Lord, secure His power.
    We are given the full armor of God
    To take our stand against evil’s hour.

    When evil comes, we’ll wear God’s armor:
    The belt of truth buckled around our waist,
    The breastplate of righteousness all in place,
    Guarded from arrows by the shield of faith.

    With readiness from the gospel of peace,
    Our feet will be fitted and firmly shod.
    All with the helmet of salvation,
    And the Spirit’s sword – the Word of God.

    With God’s armor, we can take our stand,
    And with the strength we get from prayers.
    Final victory is ours, glory to God,
    And eternal rest in His merciful care.

          that’s an odd comment .

          if you miss the beauty in this painting, I can’t help you with that.

          artists see beauty in the mundane…they find it and they interpret it…and they give it life.

          have you ever tried to paint anything? standing out in the heat, the humidity, with the bugs and the shifting light and people standing around, sometimes, gawking?

          lugging your easel and canvas and paints…mixing those paints….often returning again and again to that same place til the painting is done…often finishing it back in the studio after tons of preliminary sketches ?

          try doing it sometime….successfully.

          and then you might start to understand the agony and the ecstasy of it and how difficult, sometimes maddening, it can be.

          thank GOD for people with money who pay for it.

          otherwise we artists would starve and go insane.

                  I know what you mean about painting stairs and stairways…interesting doors are fun, too.

                  I would imagine a big part of Sargent’s visual interest in this particular “subject” was the way the light fell on the stairs and the walls there….making the whitewash surfaces gleam and shimmer, punctuated so nicely by the dark shadowy colors of the foliage at the top.

                  a marvelous study in lights & darks, contrasting and sparkling in that very special light.

                  so nice to see you again…miss you on the Open thread…a LOT. ❤

      The Third Sunday of Lent is that of the Veneration of the Cross. The cross stands in the midst of the church in the middle of the lenten season not merely to remind men of Christ’s redemption and to keep before them the goal of their efforts, but also to be venerated as that reality by which man must live to be saved. “He who does not take up his cross and follow me is not worthy of me” (Mt.10:38). For in the Cross of Christ Crucified lies both “the power of God and the wisdom of God” for those being saved (1 Cor.1:24).

    Chuck Berry, one of the all-time rock ‘n’ roll greats, dead at 90

    Revolutionary blues singer Chuck Berry, often referred to as the “poet laureate” and “father” of rock ‘n’ roll, died Saturday, police in Missouri said. He was 90.

    Officers responded to Berry’s home outside St. Louis on Saturday afternoon and found him unconscious, the St. Charles County police said on Facebook. First responders were unsuccessful in reviving him and pronounced him dead at 1:26 p.m. local time.

    Charles Edward Anderson Berry was born in St. Louis on Oct. 18, 1926. As a child he practiced a bent-leg stride that enabled him to slip under tables, a prelude to the duck walk of his adult years. His mother, like Johnny B. Goode’s, told him he would make it, and make it big.

          I truly dislike folks who do something questionable then throw a scripture to cover it. Scripture isn’t cat litter. Either live the words or stop posting it. You can’t do both with any conviction.

          Yes, I’m from dissenting stock, but it doesn’t make it less true. I just scroll past most scripture-ish posts because I know IRL few people are in a position to hurl scripture in good conscience. Anyway, I usually just let it go and scroll, but sometimes I have to say something.

            People who disagree on this site bring welcome grist for discussion, Les. I personally like to read differing opinions and look at things from different angles. A troll, on the other hand, at least on this site, is someone who clearly has no interest in participation or clarification, but in sowing discord, doubt or criticism for the sake of criticizing alone and discouraging members of TCH. They are generally paid dissidents from the left, Never-Trump movement, globalists, etc., and have no desire to learn anything.

            There is a subtle “feel” to their comment(s); they usually drop a couple of “bombs”, then leave. I occasionally call them out when it appears they’re taking the discussion down the wrong path for an extended period of time. Most of the time, fellow Treepers and I ignore them and move on.

            Les, I also find it offensive when Scripture is used as a weapon or as a means of judging or badgering others. I’ve had many negative experiences with “Christians” (or those who profess to be Christians) in my life, and it sorely tested my faith. Because of that, my relationship with, and faith in, God has undergone enormous change over the years, and I am humbled and grateful for that. My personal relationship with God, with Jesus Christ, is precisely that: deeply personal. It is the most important part of my life. Scripture offers great comfort and encouragement to me; I like to share that comfort and encouragement on this site.

            Many here, including me, believe our prayers have played a large role in bringing Donald Trump to the Presidency and continue to help him as he leads.

            Please know that I have nothing but respect for you and honor your opinions, Les. Have a great evening.

    Stories for Noah

    In high school my basketball coach was a marine who had returned from Vietnam. Very strict. It was the 70s and I had a ponytail for a hairstyle. He told me to cut it off. I said no. He kicked me off the team.

    When your dad and uncle wouldn’t get up for school when the alarm went off your grandmother would ask me to do something. I would go get the Van Halen CD turn it on full blast and play Eruption. That got everybody out of bed.

    A straight A student the HS chemistry teacher didn’t like my facial smirk. He told me to go get that smile off my face. It got bigger. He threw me out of class and sent me to the principal.

    In meetings at work I would not always agree with the subject being discussed. Sometimes I wanted more information, sometimes I didn’t agree. They said I was insubordinate, I said they didn’t understand what the word meeting meant. My evaluations often stated that I could not be a team player.

    For some strange reason I liked hearing people say, “Ya know you can be a real pain in the ass.”

The video indicates the attacker had shot at police during a routine traffic stop & he then proceeded to airport where he attempted to take the military rifle away from a female soldier. The deceased perp was a radicalized muslim well known to intelligence services.

    From wiseGEEK:

    What Did George Washington Do after His Presidency??

    America’s first president was 65 when his eight years in office came to an end. George Washington was looking forward to a laid-back retirement at his home in Mount Vernon, Virginia, but his plantation manager, James Anderson, had a different vision. Anderson thought that Mount Vernon was the perfect spot for a whiskey distillery, with its abundance of fresh water, access to plenty of rye, and a state-of-the-art grist mill. He persuaded Washington to take the plunge. Mount Vernon’s whiskey became a big seller and a very profitable endeavor. The distillery cranked out nearly 11,000 gallons (41,640 liters) in 1799 alone, and was considered to be one of the nation’s top producers at the time.

    A toast to a presidential distiller:?

    ◆This wasn’t the aged whiskey sold today. “Everything was a white whiskey back then,” explains Mount Vernon spokesman Steve Bashore, “They wanted it to get to the stores, the markets and taverns quickly.”

    ◆The whiskey produced by America’s founding father wasn’t targeted at an elite clientele. “It was a common whiskey for a common man,” Bashore says.

    ◆In 2009, the old Mount Vernon distillery was refurbished and rebuilt, and whiskey began to flow there again. Bashore says that all fermentation and distillation work is done using 18th-century methods.

    Talk about how deep Soros’ influence is in U.S. elections. He spent 160 million to get a state attorney elected in Orange County. Now she refused to seek the death penalty for the assassination murder of a black female police Sgt. in Orlando. The outrage was so great Governor Scott removed her from the case a special prosecutor. Soros is gaining control of the courts in this country now. And a side note the state attorney is married to a convicted felon. You have no idea othe dangers of Soros to our country.

    Oooo…I saw garden mentioned upstream…Ive been watchin my grass grow and even mowed it a few times…but I didn’t notice the humongous green onions that were in a pot sittin on my front porch.

    Well it seems they are the only thing I ever planted that doesn’t need any attention, I pushed a few ends of some green onions into a pot bout a year ago…now they are overgrown and ready to eat. So I won’t be buying any from the store for awhile if I just can remember to run outside and cut a few stems occasionally to throw in my pan. Who knew that my thumb would turn green after all these years?

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    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 and their families 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
