Tuesday December 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 †

    Politico is reporting an update https://www.politico.com/story/2017/12/19/congress-tax-bill-votes-304908 that is stating……

    ” Updated, 4:35 p.m.: Several provisions in the GOP’s sweeping tax bill violate the Senate’s procedural rules and will likely need to be removed, according to Senate aides. The House is expected to re-vote on the legislation Wednesday, after the Senate votes Tuesday night.”

    Finding it difficult to post today.

    In honor of Saint Nicholas of Myra, whose memory we celebrate today on the traditional Orthodox Church Calendar, a link below takes readers to a full length account of his life from the Great Collection of the Lives of the Saints, courtesy of Chrysostom Press.

    FYI – if anyone is interested.

    JFK Declassified: The New Files on the History channel 269 @ 10:00 Eastern on Direct TV.

    Apparently about the most shocking documents that were released in October.

    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.

    Sorry if this is already posted, but when I hit “Older Comments” to check postings, it freezes my computer up! ???

    As usual, Juan Browne posts a very effective report, his being a non-professional journalist (MSM could learn a lot from Juan). He will likely have follow-ups, so if you’re interested in follow-ups, click through to YouTube and subscribe to Juan’s channel.

      Actually Juan IS a “professional journalist” since he writes columns for a northern California small publication, but that’s not his main profession (aviation is). His YT reports and POV are excellent no matter what his subject.
