Sunday April 16th – Open Thread

Our 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 †

    Low in the grave He lay,
    Jesus, my Savior,
    Waiting the coming day,
    Jesus, my Lord!

    Vainly they watch His bed,
    Jesus, my Savior;
    Vainly they seal the dead,
    Jesus, my Lord!

    Death cannot keep his Prey,
    Jesus, my Savior;
    He tore the bars away,
    Jesus, my Lord!

    Up from the grave He arose,
    With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
    He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
    And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
    He arose! He arose!
    Hallelujah! Christ arose!

    Robert Lowry – 1874

    These are really sweet historic photos of a place in Louisiana that served free crab every Friday night during the Depression. Almost makes me wish I was alive back then:

    Happy Easter, Christ is risen! Here is a little ancient Celtic humor:

    May those who love us, love us.
    And those who don’t love us,
    May God turn their hearts;
    And if He doesn’t turn their hearts,
    May He turn their ankles,
    So we will know them by their limping.

    Major Easter Terror Attack Was Just FOILED In Pakistan
    April 15, 2017

    The Pakistani military foiled a terror attack that had been planned for Easter Sunday, per The Hill.

    Military officials stabilized the threat by “killing one militant and detaining one of his associates.”
    Check it out:

    The military said four soldiers were wounded during the raid that came hours after Christians celebrated Good Friday.

    AP noted that it was unclear which terrorist organization was planning the attack on Easter Sunday in Lahore.

    Two terror attacks occurred in Egypt on Palm Sunday earlier this week.

    $43M in cash found in empty Nigerian apartment
    April 14, 2017

    More than US$43 million was seized from an apartment building in Nigeria after the anti-corruption unit received a tip.

    The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission received a tip from a whistleblower who reported suspicious activity when they noticed someone moving bags in and out of the apartment, according to a Facebook post.

    Another source claimed that a “haggard” looking woman in “dirty clothes” sometimes appeared at the apartment building with multiple bags.

    On Wednesday, the anti-corruption unit said they stormed the seventh floor of a residential building and entered into the apartment where they found three fireproof cabinets hidden inside a dresser. The cabinets were full of neatly packaged bills.

    In total, they seized US$43 million in U.S. bills, US$35,000 in U.K. pounds and US$75,000 in Nigerian naira.

    I remember when my friends and I would get all dressed up for Easter Sunday and go to Church wearing our new hats. It was fun. Unfortunately, that’s a tradition that seems to have disappeared when I wasn’t even looking.


    The lost ritual of the Fifth Avenue Easter Parade

    It started as an informal promenade in the 1870s, when New York’s most prestigious churches­like St. Patrick’s and St. Thomas, both on Fifth Avenue­began decorating their interiors with beautiful floral displays in honor of Easter.

    Stories for Noah

    Happy Easter! Two stories from Easter past. When your dad and uncle were little the Easter bunny used to put CDs and DVDs in their baskets. These were plastic discs that played music and movies. Way before I pods and phones that are computers. They had a couple of songs they were singing. So the Easter bunny put that CD in their basket. It was “Devil Without a Cause”, a strange choice to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. When they opened the packaging the singer, Kid Rock, the picture of him was giving the universal salute for number 1, except he was using his middle finger. Your grandmother freaked out.

    The music of my youth consisted of pop music that contained songs with double meanings. Afternoon Delight was just a sweet ditty, years later did I understand what they were singing about. When they started playing the Kid there was no doubt what his rhymes were referencing. No imagination needed. His cowboy song was nothing like Toby Keith. The Easter bunny didn’t know about censored and uncensored music. Because the Easter bunny didn’t like Al and Tipper Gore. Now grandma was howling mad. The Easter bunny was in big trouble! From then on the Easter bunny was more in touch with his feminine side.

    One of the neighbor boys used to hang at the house a lot, almost like a third son. He played the same sports as your uncle and most of the time on the same teams, some which I coached. As they grew older he followed them to the catholic high school. He liked it enough to convert to Catholicism along with his brother. Our whole family went to his RCIA service on Easter vigil. Growing up with Latin masses and seeing the change in the church I had never been to one of these services. It was beautiful and inspiring. The true meaning of the season. Go with your parents and feel the love.

    So has the MSM found a weakness in the president by attacking a key advisor, by playing to his ego. I hope not, I pray the POTUS sees thru the evil called the MSM.
    If this is a weakness, its going to be a long four years.

    Interesting history lesson from a song. !950 to 1963 is more in depth. Then it speeds up and zips by. I know it was to keep the song radio length, but it has a real world affect of time zooming by.

    It is by faith that you are saved. Nothing else. Once saved, always saved. It is a gift from God. Works gets you no where.

    Ephesians 2:8-9

    8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.


    • MK Wood says:

      Once you are saved, then you are expected to do works for Jesus. The works themselves do not save us. Works after faith brings us blessings.

    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
