Sunday April 1st – 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 †

      A Blessed Resurrection Day, to you, duchess!
      🙋‍♂️. And to All! 🙆‍♂️ May God be with each of you and those you hold dear. AMEN

      So sad, yet, so true. America has been lead bit by bit, step by treacherous step, away from the Family Unit by way of distraction. Imho
      The escalating intrusion of Things!! Not Faith. Not Family. Not God… anything but, God!!
      Manipulation, which has always been used, is now being Broadcast Globally; no longer contained. And, as the pace of this transformation continued the “Programming” hideously began replacing time once spent with Family or friends, mentors or in Church, to time spent trying to “Keep up” with the family next door….with the expectations… with the endless mantra of More, More, More!! Which, sadly, left us with Less, Less, Less. The only thing that became More, More, More… was the Distractions..
      New and Improved (manipulation)
      You can do better (manipulation)
      Gonna need a bigger…better (Manipulation)
      Think of the Children (Manipulation)
      Oh no! They are Different. Duh (Manipulation)
      They (Evil) had Americans # (Manipulation)
      Anything but, God.
      Anything… But The Truth!!

      A few lines from the “Eagles” “Long Road out of Eden” title track..
      “Behold the bitten Apple. The power of the Tools. But, all the knowledge in the world is of no use to fools. And it’s a looooong road…out of Eden!”

      If we, as individuals, will SIMPLY turn to God…
      (even with Faith the size of a Mustard seed) and put our Faith in Him… Read His Word!!! and stop sittin around Waiting to be Told.. Sumthin… by a Person who CANNOT SAVE!!..
      I believe we go a long way in eliminating the “Distactions”. In the end, imho, that’s all they are “Distractions”, nothing more. Easy to do. Easy not to do.
      As it has been since the beginning…
      Our Choice! Praise God!

  5. A very Happy Easter to all!

    Pre-Raphaelite John Everett Millais (1829–1896) to Mozart’s Symphony 33 in A, KV319 – 3, Menuetto. John Elliot Gardner. Roughly chronological. Consider it a small bite of art history. A child prodigy, Millais was sent to art school at the age of 9 and entered Academic training at 11. At that young age, he was already winning awards for his figures and his composition. His portraiture includes a wide range of political, religious and noble figures. He was made a Baronet for his work.

    And if you’re not afraid of modern music, and love modern art, a range of Early 20th Century artists to Lukas Foss.

      Mary, many thanks your the work on Millias compilation.
      I have not seen this work, and am very grateful for the pause function.
      Many of these paintings, as well as the other works, are quite compelling.
      A real addition to enjoying This Special Day!

      • It was a hard decision, leaving so many beautiful pieces out. But the other musical candidate was almost twice as long and I thought that was a hard length for people to handle. My college Art History classes were light on Pre-Raphaelites, so I’m thrilled to get this extra-curricular education. We never had the tools, in those days, to make it easy to get a fast perspective on an artist’s whole career. That’s part of what I love about these. Here you can see where he starts becoming VERY famous for his portraits, and a lot of the complicated set pieces disappear. Fewer casual portraits and more famous people’s children in casual settings.

    Nick Sayers wrote an article that examines the linguistic history of the words “Easter” and “Passover” in the English language. It delves into details that are overlooked by others.

    The article is lengthy and precedes two videos that verbally explain the content.

    The article is well worth reading and deserves additional scholarly attention.

    Thanks for Phoenix on the POTUS page, reminder of National Prayer at 5pm every day begins now. The prayer today is the Lord’s Prayer:

    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.

          That’s a good idea Mama…the guy posts @POTUS too for the prayer reminder everyday at 5pm pst and 8pm est. We all pray to God at the same time. Coordinated. Even tho is rote prayer, I believe the Holy Spirit helps us like Pope Benedict XVI said in 2012 I’m not Catholic but I like a lot of the writings:

          “Continuing his weekly catechesis on Christian prayer, Pope Benedict XVI used this week’s General Audience to explore the theme of prayer in the Letters of St. Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles, in the New Testament.

          He told over 11,000 pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square to take on board the advice of St. Paul to turn to the Holy Spirit when “we want to pray, but God is far away, we do not have the words, the language to talk with God, not even the thought.”

          It is then, said the Pope, that “we can only open ourselves up, make time available for God” knowing that this mere desire to get in touch with God “is prayer that the Holy Spirit not only understands, but it brings, interprets before God.”

          “In prayer we experience, more than in other dimensions of existence, our weakness, our poverty, our being creatures, because we are faced with the omnipotence and transcendence of God,” said Pope Benedict.

          It is therefore the Holy Spirit “who helps our inability, enlightens our minds and warms our hearts, guiding our turning to God.”

        I know BigMamaTEA. I know. That’s why I posted it here too (from the POTUS page). The deal is across America, at the same time every day. 5:00pm PST 8:00pm EST. The idea is to get everyone across America to do it at the same time.

    I didn’t see the first episode of the new Roseanne show but I’m aware of the big ratings. I’ll definitely watch the second epsiode (and try to catch up with On Demand or whatever). I wonder if the ratings for the second episode will be better than for the first, with lots of people like me who forgot to watch the first. I hope so. Better ratings might mean more shows we want to watch.

        Amazing, Comcast is actually offering episode 1 on On Demand for free. They have gotten so horrible over the years, now many shows are only viewable if you have a Netflix account which I refuse to get. I guess I’ll make some dinner and watch this show now. 🙂

    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.

    I attended two church services today.
    Lutheran and then Greek

    Crossed paths with a gal I knew in High school,
    We both have families and we dined at after mass hall / feast / FOOD Extraordinaire
    Had fun dancing with her.
    Think we even brushed noses,
    ours are both long, our noses.
    Only mine has been broken and grown askew

    Watched our Grand kids dance and flirt
    and our spouses become agitated
    It was a good time with good food,
    her mother taught dance at our small town,
    and we remembered how…

    For Dina;

    We joked about body hair and my Mustache
    and her being a “Somebody”
    and me a “Nobody”

    It was a good time.
