Saturday November 3rd – 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 †

    Growing From Our Hurts
    NOVEMBER 03, 2018

    Genesis 50:15-21

    Throughout history, people have suffered tremendous injustice and pain at the hands of others. None of us are exempt from conflict, criticism, and mistreatment. The question is, Are we growing more or less like Christ as a result?

    Nothing that happens in our lives is an accident. As children of God, we know that everything coming our way is filtered through our Father’s loving, sovereign hands. And He can use whatever we experience to grow us in grace and holiness—yes, even injustice and abuse.

    Joseph endured more unfair treatment than most of us can even imagine: He was sold into slavery by his brothers, slandered by Potiphar’s wife, and forgotten in prison. For years, it seemed that no good would ever result, but there was divine purpose in it all. Joseph learned more about God’s ways and was also being trained for the future.

    The same is true for each of us. The Lord doesn’t want us to focus on the wrongs done to us and the pain we’ve suffered. Instead, He wants us to keep our eyes fixed on Him. As we read God’s Word, He reveals His ways and purposes, giving us guidance to walk with Him and patience to wait for His timing. And His indwelling Holy Spirit enables us to respond in a godly manner by forgiving those who wrong us.

    Think about Joseph’s words to his brothers: “You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good” (Gen. 50:20). Remember, that is true in your life also. The pain you carry can be used for good if you’ll forgive your offenders and trust the Lord’s ways.

    My eyes must be playing tricks on me. 3/4 way thru the little video (as a guy was screaming at him re sexual assault) I’m sure I saw C.Booker slobber all over that selfie girls face…AND he didn’t ask her permission. Where’s the outrage.

    UN, EU and Soros provide migrants with prepaid debit cards to fund their trip to and through Europe

    The EU, in cooperation with MasterCard and Soros, generously hand out prepaid debit cards to the migrants.

    The information comes from a source within the Croatian police, which states that the migrants are well-equipped with newly purchased, high-quality boots, hiking clothes, smartphones and even weapons.

    MasterCard announced in 2016 that they issued prepaid debit cards to “give refugees mobility, flexibility and dignity”.

    In a press release last year, MasterCard also announced a cooperation with George Soros with the aim to “catalyse and accelerate economic and social development for vulnerable groups in the world, especially refugees and migrants”.

    The press release further stated that George Soros had earmarked up to $500 million for private investment that will increase capacity to meet the challenges faced by migrants, including refugees, and their host communities across the world.

    That’s nice. Just cancelled my Mastercard. I’m so fed up with this BS.

    I wanted to learn the source of the quote, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” General wisdom says it was from Voltaire, but now the Internet says it was white supremacist Kevin Alfred Storm. My interpretation is that any criticism of the Uniparty, Mainstream Media, and Big Tech is now “out of bounds,” and instead we Deplorables must embrace censorship! Leftists truly do love Big Brother:

    The Deputy Prime Minister of Italy is shown by a survey in La Repubblica that 58 per cent consider him Italy’s leader, with only 14 per cent for fellow Deputy Prime Minister Luigi De Maio of the 5 Star Movement and Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte only receiving 16 per cent.

    Only 44 per cent of Italians now want to remain in the EU.

    wildlife ! bite they little heads off…

    I just watched a Florida Red Tailed Hawk catch and then eat…a black snake.

    I did not take those photos but that’s the bird and that’s what he did.

    first, I saw him out in the back here, pulling at something in the ground…I quietly & slowly went out to the landing…and he kept pulling at whatever it was…then…wow…he got the head of the snake in his beak, and yanked on it, and the thing came up out of the ground…??

    it wasn’t a full size snake…it was a young black snake…maybe 8″ long.. that must’ve been down in the sand & grass.

    when he got hold of it, he took off and flew over to the back fence with it hanging from his beak.

    gross but interesting…I’ve never seen anything like it.

    then, on the fence, he began to eat the thing…starting with the head. 😦

    he consumed about half of it when the neighbor’s lawn crew showed up, scared him away with half the snake still in his beak…flying thru the air w/ half a snake in his beak.

    the one lawn guy saw him and started waving his arms…like a big deal .

    very excited, he was yelling at me across the fence, he tried to tell me it was an eagle…but…no…it was a hawk…a what ??…a.. h-a-w-k.


    other guy came around the corner…and we all said “hawk !” several times to each other, at the fence.


    they’re really nice hombres…just not real familiar w/ Florida bird breeds.

    pretty wild stuff.

      Smiley, we have a pair of the red tails in our neighborhood and they often sit on the wood fence in our back yard. Once, the male perched on the iron railing right outside our kitchen door for at least a half-hour. I put dried meal worms out there for some of the small birds and the summer anoles (lizards)…guess the hawk was looking for some action.
      First, they are so beautiful! And, second..they are so huge and strong!


      • smiley says:

        they really are beautiful…what amazes me is how he SAW the snake underneath the ground…he was tugging on it and pulling it like a Robin pulls on a worm.

        he pulled the ting up, out of the ground…there’s a lot of grass growing, too…how did he even see it ??

        it wasn’t just lying in the grass…it was deep in the ground.

        hawk eyes.



    • auscitizenmom says:

      I was walking my dog and came up on a mother duck and her 7 babies. Because I was near, the babies were all in a lump, almost up under the mother. I was about 10 feet or less away and a hawk dropped out of the sky, grabbed a baby, and was gone. The mother took off after him, but ducks are so slow compared to hawks. She flew a little ways off and then came back to protect the other babies. It is kinda depressing to see how little they have to protect themselves with.

    Caravan artist tattoos loved ones’ names for fellow migrants
    17 hours ago

    In this Oct. 31, 2018 photo, Honduran migrant Jose Manuel de Jesus Sandoval tattoos the hand of a fellow migrant, at a camp set up by a caravan of thousands of Central American migrants in Juchitan, Mexico. Sandoval's informal training comes thanks to eight months he did behind bars in the United States after he was in a car accident and was discovered to be in the country illegally…


    • auscitizenmom says:

      Hm. Makes me wonder how many of the newly tattooed people, who may have been tattooed with used needles and could have Hepatitis, will end up working in our restaurants.

        count on it…and worse…leprosy, polio…typhus…

        the health risks with these hordes are as bad as the security risks, imo.

        I don’t think all of them will make it to the border…unless they all get transportation somehow.

        they’re starting to splinter up into smaller factions…heading hither & yon.

        and they have some dangerous territory to cross still, down there.

        the weaker ones might succumb to sickness & exhaustion…and local predators.

        when they eventually do make it, the next huge challenge will be those tent cities…

        huge challenge for everybody including the US.

        what a total mess.

    I will check back here later tonight to see if Sundance or Fleporeblog or Fl Guy or anyone else has answered my question.

    I hate to show such ignorance, but I’m confused about Early Voting. I keep reading how the Democrats are ahead in EV or the Republicans are ahead in EV but what I don’t know is whether these are actual counted votes or whether they are just counting whether the person requested a R vs a D vs an I ballot.

    Help me out, guys.

    • The voting results are NOT being reported until after the Election Polls close on Tuesday. These numbers are how many Rs and Ds and Others have early voted. The assumption is that the early voter voted for their party.

    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.
