Saturday May 6th – 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 †

    We watch as the wicked get ever richer;
    We worry as they lie, cheat and steal.
    We watch as they have escaped the judge.
    Who hears our cry? Where can we appeal?

    God says we shouldn’t worry ourselves,
    The wicked will be cut down like the grass.
    Rest in the Lord; wait patiently for Him,
    For He’ll soon bring His judgment to pass.

    Cease from your anger, and forsake your wrath;
    Don’t worry about those who do evil.
    For the judgment that comes from the Lord
    Will be swift on the wings of an eagle.

    But those of you who wait upon the Lord,
    You, the meek, will inherit the earth,
    Be delighted in the abundance of peace,
    And be rewarded, a pearl of great worth.

    The wicked make plans against the just,
    and spread their deeds of terror and fear.
    The Lord Who knows all will laugh at them:
    For he knows that the judgment is near.

    The little that a righteous man has
    Is more than the riches of the wicked.
    The wealth of the wicked will burn in the fire,
    But the lives of the righteous will be lifted.

    The wicked borrow, but never repay,
    While the righteous show mercy, and give.
    But the wicked will all be destroyed,
    While the righteous will be blessed and live.

    The LORD will carry out His judgment,
    The wicked know what God has in store.
    So depart from evil, and ever do good;
    And dwell in God’s peace for evermore.

    Trust in the Lord, and always do good;
    Delight yourself in all of God’s ways.
    He’ll bring forth your righteousness as light,
    And His judgment as the noonday.

    The LORD knows the days of all the upright:
    Their inheritance will be forever.
    They will be welcomed at the end of days:
    “Well done, My loyal servant. Come. Enter.”

    Craziness. They need to just chill. Creating a mess and hurting someone does no good at all. Seems like individuals who behave this way do so in order to feel better about themselves. These ppl probably have miserable lives.

      Thank You, Duchess, for your contributions to this site. Your choices of Scriptures is fitting for the day.
      I saw my first blessing today-the quietness of the early morning hour with the Lord. Today’s Scripture is perfect.
      Blessings to you today, for your gifts–and to all the wonderful Treepers–and Sundance—-and President Trump—-and —oooh— too many blessings coming in already—-

        Please know – I do not choose the ‘Verse of the Day’ – it comes from the KJV website – however, I am so glad it touches your heart and makes your day – God Bless You for acknowledging His Gifts!

    Are you wanna drag this country to war against IRAN ??? I say no way …MAGA. Iran did not invaded other country for more than 250 yrs….any current ” dispute” will be resolve peacefully with PDJT in helm…..METHOD 2….


    • Jim in TN says:

      Words mean things. Iraq started their war with Iran, invading Iran, but before that war ended, Iran invaded Iraq. Even our liberation of France in WWII started with the D-Day invasion.

      Not a judgment, just a fact, that happened a lot less than 250 years ago.

      I never see a bidet without thinking of the story Billy Wilder related….which, honestly, breaks me up every time I recall it.

      Wilder’s wife had requested he purchase a certain bidet while he was on location in Europe directing a film. Several weeks later when he wired her that he’d be arriving home at a certain hour, her reply asked if he’d done as she asked. Since he’d forgotten all about it, his response was something along the line of, “No. Recommend you stand on your head in the shower instead.”

      I have the feeling this was a complaint from one anonymous person. They should have to put his name out there before the bench is removed. I hope somebody does some digging and figure out who it is.

    Nothing you say is supported by god’s Word. Scripture verses. It is a secular perspective; therefore, it should be taken with a grin of salt.

    False prophets/false teaching do the same.

    My cat Jack likes to play rough from time to time. So we play a little boxing game. I try to touch or poke his forehead, he in turn tries to knock my hand away. Just started playing. Observation: Cats are FAST. And STRONG. I was surprised at the wallop the little guy has. Cats can really punch hard for their size. So far, he’s whipping my ass at this game.

    Ran to Winn Dixie this morning for a couple of things. After cranking out five grand to the IRS in April, I had the distinct pleasure of watching a lady pay for $120 in groceries with her food stamp card, then, pull out her BoA debit card to pay for $80 worth of Powerball and scratch off tickets. To continue the dream, she left in her new Chrysler with about $1800 in custom wheels and tires.

    I got to learn how to fill out the right boxes./s

    I play what has to be the most politically incorrect game on the planet. Silent Hunter 3 – a WW2 German Uboat with of course an all white male crew. The only women in the game are nurses who wave at the sailors s they leave and enter port, and the nightclub singer. I’m testing a mod that allows a person to walk around the sub, rather than stationary stations. The international open source sub gaming community has turned a good game into a work of art. Check it out:


    • Mike says:

      definition: “Mod” = modification, or modifying the “stock,” or original game.


    • Mike says:

      I also play Silent Hunter 4 on occasion, in which I can play American submarines. They never fleshed this out like the Silent Hunter 3 game, due to basic stock game parameters. That’s too bad, as the American Subs have great potential.

    • Mike says:

      If only someone developed a game or mods for the Japanese Submarines. This would be a sweet Simulation and a person could play in each of three navies This is the Japanese i-400, which was the largest sub built at the time. The vid is cued, but if it doesn’t cue right, you can start watching at the 21:40 mark:

    Apparently the nets for the French election outcome are on Le Pen. To those with French family and friends, keep their spirits vigorous and aflame.


  34. Appreciate you sharing your words. Even though I don’t particularly agree with them. (I understand your general idea and yes!Satan is very active in the world and yes! God does give us blessings like President Trump) I am glad you’re moving forward in your relationship with Christ.
    Don’t be afraid of hearing God’s word in your heart and experiencing him directly.
    Not everything that is; is in Scripture for Scripture itself is clear on that.

    My husband has also said in the past those who are against President Trump are going against God. Just take a look at the other side: the hatred, the violence and the filth and profanity. Definitely the “spirit of antichrist” as St. John the Evangelist defines it in Scripture.

    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 pray for France, and for the safety of Marine Le Pen.

    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
