Sunday September 9th – 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 †

    May the blessing of light be on you – light without and light within.
    May the blessed sunlight shine on you like a great peat fire,
    so that stranger and friend may come and warm himself at it.
    And may light shine out of the two eyes of you,
    like a candle set in the window of a house,
    bidding the wanderer come in out of the storm.
    And may the blessing of the rain be on you,
    may it beat upon your Spirit and wash it fair and clean,
    and leave there a shining pool where the blue of Heaven shines,
    and sometimes a star.
    And may the blessing of the earth be on you,
    soft under your feet as you pass along the roads,
    soft under you as you lie out on it, tired at the end of day;
    and may it rest easy over you when, at last, you lie out under it.
    May it rest so lightly over you that your soul may be out from under it quickly; up and off and on its way to God.
    And now may the Lord bless you, and bless you kindly. Amen.

    Next time the Dallas Cowboy owner Jerry Jones is kneeling with his players during the National Anthem he should start praying. The Panthers just kicked their butts, no fan of the Panthers but Jerry Jones losing is more than worth it.

    Next time Mr. Jones, when your on National television during our National Anthem stand up like a real man.

    Very Good Boy Gets Saved From A High Kill Shelter
    Published on Sep 9, 2018
    Jet had been waiting at Baldwin Park Shelter without anyone interested in adopting him. The shelter was overcrowded and he was going to be euthanized to make space for incoming dogs. Shelter volunteers notified Deity Animal Rescue who rescued him and gave him the love he deserved.

    Thought on the eve of an upcoming anxiety-inducing troublesome weather week:

    Worry is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but doesn’t get you anywhere.

    Preparation is key, keeps us too busy to succumb to fear of the unknown.

    Keep the faith, Treepers.

    Prepare, pray and trust.

    Let go and let God 🙏🏼

    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.
