Sunday December 17th – 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 †

    I don’t know if this has been posted previously, but it does address how non-related events helped propel the Russian meme.

    The original article.

    Sensitive Men
    Frank and Dianne were in a local shopping center just before Christmas.

    Dianne suddenly noticed that Frank was missing, and as they had a lot to do, she called him on his cell phone. Dianne asked, “Frank, where are you? You know that we have lots to do.”

    Frank said, “Do you remember the jewelry store we went into about 10 years ago, and you fell in love with a diamond necklace? I could not afford it at the time, and I said that one day I would get it for you.”

    Little tears started to flow down Dianne’s cheek, and she got all choked up. “Yes, I do remember that shop,” she replied.

    “Well, I’m in the Hooters next to that.”

    As we ready ourselves to celebrate the birth of Our Lord, let’s remember Christians around the world who are being persecuted, maimed and killed by the great jihad which aims for our demise along with all others who throw their belief system in the trash where it so richly deserves to be hurled.

    “While Christian churches in the West hold birthday celebrations for Muhammad and acknowledge him as a prophet, this is the reality for Christians in Muslim lands today.”

    Remember that Coudenhove-Kalergi plan to cross-breed Europeans into a nice, homogenous “latte” color?

    Well, it looks like some factions aren’t cooperating with the plan:

    Meanwhile, those smarter-and-more-civilized-than-the-rest-of-us Swedes are finding out that they’ll have to labor extra years to pay for their diversi-pets.

    Wait ’till they find out it’s not enough and they’ll have to raise it yet again and again – oh, about every 2 years – because most of the pets happily lol around on welfare and free gummint housing.

    Micah 5:2  But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel,    whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days.

    John 1:9-14  The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.  He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.  He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him,  who believed in his name,  he gave the right  to become  children of God, who were born,  not of blood  nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.  And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of  grace and  truth.

    And all heavens angels sing, and all th Lord Jesus’ beloved sing ….

    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.
