Sunday November 19th – 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 †

    UK losing Christ?

    Christian Charity Drops Bible from Nativity Book as Children ‘Don’t Know Basics of Christmas Story’


    “The scale of Biblical illiteracy amongst children has been revealed in a number of surveys, including one in 2014 which showed that one in three children between 10 and 13 do not know that Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus. “

    Hubby and I just returned from church and it is with mixed emotions that I celebrated this day. We welcomed a new member in baptism to our faith family, but our little country church was locked down. I am thankful our church leaders have so quickly implemented a multi faceted safety plan, but deeply saddened to find ouselves in a society that has necessitated such actions.

    Praise God for this day and all our leaders.

      One of the best. He was such a cool guy too…I had a friend that met him one time, got to hang out with him a little bit, Mel invited him on his tour bus for a beer, lol.

      Last I heard, he’d written over 4000 songs. He used to start every show by saying “Hi everybody, I’m Mel Tillis…. I’m Pam’s Daddy!”

      If you have any doubt about his talent, watch him sing his original version of “Ruby” that he wrote.

      I absolutely LOVE “Send Me Down To Tucson” too.

      Can’t believe they wrote a song like that!

    One Border Patrol Agent killed and one in the hospital after an incident on the Mexican border? Where’s the outcry? Let’s have an investigation. Let’s point fingers. Oh – wait minute; that’s not important. Let’s talk about defending politicos’ current and prior sexual “matters” – it’ll get better headlines and may be used to discredit our President.

    It is obvious the prior holdovers and current “people in charge” of defending our border are incapable, incompetent or don’t have the willpower. It’s been ten months – time is up. Screw this PC krap. Pull one US Army infantry brigade each out of Germany and South Korea and put them on the Southern border. The new rule of the day will be IN ENGLISH on the American side: “Halt or I’ll shoot – BANG” Who’s next?

      How many more American lives have to be sacrificed on the altar of diversity, inclusion and PC before we stop this senseless murder of American citizens.
      Troops in the Middle East? Bring some home because we have a a war right here.
      “Couple of Brigades”?
      I’d like to throw in some fire support, but that’s not PC.
      Just saying.

    A group of 13 former top national security officials write the top four congressional leaders to argue for the urgency of passing an immigration fix for “Dreamers” by Dec. 8.

    Why it matters: It’s very unusual for former officials of this stature to collectively speak out on any issue.

      What has this got to do with national security, except for being a drag on keeping out people who don’t belong here in the first place. I see it only as a negative for national security.

        My brother was just in San Francisco. He stayed in a hotel by the wharf and walked around the wharf over the weekend. He said the whole area is now Hispanics and Asians. He didn’t see any whites at all.
        This is what is happening to our country.

    The academia push to mainstream paedophilia is getting stronger.


    ‘Paedophilia is natural and normal for males’


    The statement that paedophilia is “natural and normal” was made not three decades ago but last July. It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge.

    Other presentations included “Liberating the paedophile: a discursive analysis,” and “Danger and difference: the stakes of hebephilia.”

    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.

    And, Lord, we pray for all the people who have been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Help. I cannot remember (or I never knew how)to insert a photo or a link to a post here on WordPress can anyone help me? thanks


    • BigMamaTEA says:

      dbcaldave…….first of all, your pic must already be “hot” which means an active on the web image.
      So if you’re uploading a personal pic, first you must upload it to one of the image storing sites.

      Right click on the pic. Scroll down to “view picture image”. That will bring up another page with the image and a .jpg or .gif, etc. Copy that .jpg, etc.

      Post that .jgp in the comment section here. (If it has other characters after the .jpg…delete those)

      Pictures posted on WP must have 2 blank spaces before or after any typed comment you may have. If you have no comment just post.
