Saturday October 13th – 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 †

        …Best dress since Diana…IMO, better than Diana’s! Diana’s dress wore her…too, too much. It was truly one of the most classical beautiful gowns in recent memory…kudos to both the bride and the designer,

          I agree! Lovely gown! Very well-suited to make the best advantage of her figure. I thought all the ladies in the royal wedding party wore lovely dresses, too. Beatrice’s royal blue suit was very becoming. I also loved the color and style of Kate’s ensemble. The queen’s delicate blue coat suit with that charming embellishment on her hat was perfect! God save the Queen!

          Everyone seemed very happy, relaxed n genuinely pleased with the proceedings. I wish the happy couple well.

    Christians at Work
    OCTOBER 13, 2018

    Ephesians 6:5-8

    Oftentimes Christians have the mistaken idea that their life is segmented into religious and secular, but God sees no such distinctions. In all we do, we are living representatives of Christ—even in the workplace.

    In today’s passage, we’re told how to behave and what kinds of attitudes we are to have toward our superiors. Although these passages were written to a society that allowed slavery, these Christian principles that applied to Roman slaves still remain true for us today.

    First of all, we are called to obey our employers with sincerity and honor. Although there may be times when we must choose to obey God rather than men, there is never a time when we should be disrespectful (Acts 5:29). If we’re tempted to speak badly of the boss or complain to a coworker, we need to remember this principle.

    We should do our work as unto God rather than men. This is sometimes the only way we’ll be able to handle frustrations and unfair treatment. When we remember we are doing this for the Lord and He promises to reward us, it softens our heart and changes our attitude.

    We must submit to managers even if they are harsh or unreasonable (1 Peter 2:18-23). Never are we more Christlike than when we suffer unjustly and bear up under oppression by entrusting ourselves to God. That’s when His favor rests on us.

    In addition, our response on the job broadcasts a message about the kingdom of God. The Lord has placed us in this position—even if it is a difficult one—and wants us to be an accurate reflection of Christ.
    Dr. Charles Stanley

    Jeremiah 29:11 New King James Version (NKJV)
    11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

    Jude 24-25 New King James Version (NKJV)
    Glory to God
    24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
    And to present you faultless
    Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
    25 To God our Savior,
    Who alone is wise,
    Be glory and majesty,
    Dominion and power,
    Both now and forever.

        Well, when you think about it…doesn’t planned Parenthood do the same…perform abortions on underaged girls without her parent’s knowledge?


        • smiley says:

          I think it’s without parental consent…but you might be right : without knowledge.

          but this, imo, is something different from that…the parents have given birth to the child (in the hospital)…unless they have to sign an agreement w/ the hospital that gives the hospital the “right” to kill their child, it seems even more covert and dishonest for any hospital to kill a child (not a fetus) without informing the parents.

          what’s happened to The Hippocratic Oath…does Toronto even recognize that ?

          if, as the article says, hospitals can do this without consent or knowledge, obviously that must mean the parents do NOT have to sign any “consent” forms upon admittance of the child.

          I mean…this is malpractice, at the very least….murder, more like it.

          unbelievable really.

        Canada has enough adults by now to have both of our best amendments, the 1st, and 2nd. Even with them here it is still a huge struggle to keep them in place. Canada, free speech is everything and the only way to keep it intact is with firepower. I spent a week on a sailboat out of Belize with a small group of Canadians, for having a fairly similar history they were a very self-righteous lot, and very unpleasant to be around. I drank and slept too much. And those employed were all on the government’s dime some way or another. I bet they wouldn’t like freedom because they are indirectly controlled by the Crown and never had freedom but think they have it. On a per capita basis, because of their natural resources, I would bet they are among the richest on the planet. but under many thumbs or boots.

    On October 20, a bunches of self-proclaimed witches are gathering in Brooklyn to put a hex on Justice Kavanaugh. The public is welcome to observe. They’re asking for a $10 donation to be used to favor causes such as Planned Parenthood. This is not a joke. Doesn’t this tell us everything we need to know about the crackpot left? Before we get worried about the hex itself, these crazies also put a hex on PDJT when he began his administration. Apparently it boomeranged.

    Its been 105 years since this song was first sung.

    (Details here:)

    I’ll freely admit it is hard for me to gladly bear the “shame and reproach”.
    Or to cherish or want to cling to that old rugged cross..

    As I see it, Christianity’s deepest and most powerful message is contained in the words of this beloved American hymn…

    I can’t help but ponder how much our dear nation has changed in a little over a century…

    Before the “Federal Reserve”.
    Before the Federal Income Tax.
    Before the exhausting overseas wars.
    Before the big Federal three-letter agencies.
    Before so much other self-inflicted madness corrupting this nation.
    Before 9/11.

    500 years ago, in the early months of Martin Luther’s WalkAway movement, he took part in an event called the Heidelberg Disputation.

    He was trying to illustrate the concept of righteous suffering, something he called the Theology of the Cross.

    How God allowed the evil of an old bloody and rugged cross to do its work; before the Glory of Easter morning with its empty tomb could have any power or meaning.

    One statement reads,
    “The Law says do this and it is never done. Grace says believe in this and everything is already done.”

    Another goes,
    “A Theologian it Glory calls evil good and good evil. A Theologian of the Cross calls the thing what it actually is”.

    Now substitute “Democrat” for “Theologian of Glory” in the above statement and let that roll around in your head…

    More leaks from “impeccable integrity” Mueller. This guy is the ultimate snake dressed as a lion.

    I was sure if the Rosenstein McCabe memos leak was from Mueller, that there would be many more.

    So we have had: Likely Mueller leaks in the last 3 weeks:
    -Rosenstein McCabe memos
    -Trump family estate tax planning
    -Gates bot strategy for Repub Convention
    -Peter Smith Clinton emails pursuit
    -Kushner taxes

    I know that Rosenstein and DOJ can see this happening. If RR is the rule of law guy he claims to be, he needs to apply “by the book” sanctions to DOJ prosecutors who are illegally leaking confidential info.

          • That was my thought too, just like Buffet, if the breaks are there to take, why not? There is no way he would have been allowed access to the WH if he were seriously delinquent. That only happens to the Sharptons and Geithners of the world. Anndd, your did they get a hold of his tax returns?

        The King of Cool … Steve McQueen! There is a Jan.3rd, 1960 episode of “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” titled, “Man From the South” which stars Steve McQueen, Neile Adams and Peter Lorre. Neile Adams was McQueen’s real life wife. It’s based on a short story by Roald Dahl and directed by Norman Lloyd. This episode represents everything about Hitchcock at it’s finest. As superlative as all the contributing factors are, the total sum is greater. Trust me … DON’T google this one as you don’t want the ending spoiled. The Master of Suspense must have killed a boatload of heart patients with this episode.

    Just want to share a privacy suggestion. When you bookmark a web page, get rid of extraneous tracking stuff from the URL.

    Example: I want to buy some Herbal Essences shampoo that I cannot find in a store. I use google to search and I find it on the Walgreen’s site. The URL is…plus a bunch of other stuff coding up my search. I want to bookmark this page so I’m stripping off everything from the question mark on. That leaves the URL I reload the page with the new URL, then create my bookmark. Don’t give google the credit. Use them without paying just like they use you without paying.

    I recommend that you get in the habit of doing this with everything you bookmark or every link you place in a CTH comment or anywhere else. Usually you can dump everything after the question mark but there might be some exceptions. Don’t give away your thoughts, your interests, your searches for free. Search engines, advertisers, and merchants should be PAYING you for it.

    And if you are like me and you put images from web sites into Word documents, do a special paste and choose “device-independent bitmap” rather than HTML. If you do the latter your document has a reference to the web page.

    A minor G1-class geomagnetic storm is underway on Oct. 13th. Why? An equinox crack in Earth’s magnetic field is allowing solar wind to enter our planet’s magnetosphere. Arctic sky watchers should be alert for auroras after local nightfall. Free: Aurora Alerts.


    On Oct. 8-9, Europeans outdoors around midnight were amazed when a flurry of faint meteors filled the sky. “It was a strong outburst of the annual Draconid meteor shower,” reports Jure Atanackov, a member of the International Meteor Organization who witnessed the display from Slovenia. Between 22:00 UT (Oct. 8) and 01:00 UT (Oct. 9), dark-sky meteor rates exceeded 100 per hour. In eastern France, Tioga Gulon saw “1 to 2 meteors per minute,” many of them shown here in an image stacked with frames from his video camera:

    “It was a rare and impressive event,” says Atanackov.

    It could easily have been 10 times more impressive. In fact, Earth narrowly dodged a meteor storm.

    The European outburst occurred as Earth skirted a filament of debris from Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner. If that filament had shifted in our direction by a mere 0.005 AU (~500,000 miles), Earth would have experienced a worldwide storm of 1000+ meteors per hour. These conclusions are based on a computer model of the comet’s debris field from the University of Western Ontario’s Meteor Physics Group. Here it is, showing Earth shooting the gap between two filaments of comet dust:

    Western Ontario postdoctoral researcher Auriane Egal created the model and predicted the outburst before it happened. Egal’s model was in good agreement with a rival model from NASA, so confidence was high. Meteors seen over Europe came from the larger filament on the right.

    According to the models, Earth’s L1 and L2 Lagrange points were both forecast to have storm-level activity–especially L2 which would experience the Earth-equivalent of 4000+ meteors per hour. This prompted NASA to take a close look at the danger to spacecraft.

    “The US has four space weather spacecraft at L1: ACE, SOHO, Wind, and DSCOVR,” says Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office. “There is only one operational spacecraft at L2 – the European Space Agency’s GAIA – which was where most of the Draconid activity was expected to take place. GAIA shut down science operations for a few hours around the projected storm peak and re-oriented to turn the hard side of the vehicle towards the incoming debris. All of the spacecraft came through the Draconids without incident, and this shower provided a good test of our ability to forecast meteor activity outside of Earth orbit.”

    Many readers have wondered if the outburst has anything to do with Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner’s close approach to Earth last month. “No,” says Cooke. “The models show the outburst experienced at Earth was mainly caused by material ejected from the comet from 1945 to the mid 1960’s. The meteoroids were more than half a century old.”

    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.
