Friday January 5th – 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 †

    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.

    To those of you who play board games, specifically Dominion: Husband, son and I had some family game time tonight. We played a Christmas present for the first time tonight, an extension to Dominion. It features a card called “The Swamp Hag”. The power of this card when played is that all purchases will come with a curse (-1 final victory point from one’s grand, ending total) and the player who played it gets 3 extra spending points on their next turn. After the player’s next turn the Swamp Hag went away and normal, curse free purchasing resumes until another Swamp Hag is played.

    My 11 yr old son piped up that this card greatly depressed the economy because unless one was going to purchase something of Very high value then one didn’t purchase at all because of the negative impact of the curses. He then said it was like an Obama card to which I replied that it really was and thankfully we had President Trump to roll back regulation and other economic curses.

    After a moment I realized if we didn’t have President Trump we would have had Hillary and that it wasn’t Obama who was the Swamp Hag — it was Hillary! She would have been the ultimate Swamp Hag, both parts of the name on target. Perfectly named and a complete curse on the economy, adding to what Obama had already done and getting more gold for herself in the process.

    So, now that card is, in our house, officially the Hillary Card.

    Interesting, esp. tying in with the conservative political terminology, is that the only thing that gets rid of the curse cards with their -1 victory points punishment is a card called the Rat Catcher. RATs (Republicans Against Trump) and Swamp Hags – we needed to be free of Both this past election!
    Hmmmm…. This is an American made came. I wonder if there is a conservative sense of humor behind the naming of the cards?! 🙂

  6. Saw “Darkest Hour” today. Go see it. Very fine movie. Reminded me of PDJT in our current situation although Churchil of course had different pressing pressure …..

      I’ve been meaning to check that movie out. Thanks for the recommendation! As far entertainment, this morning I heard a very beautiful song on the radio. Had to search through Youtube to find it and here it is. Pop/Soft Rock type of sound. Very soothing and heart-felt. Hard to find honest song-writers these days.
