Thursday December 6th – 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 †

      Thanks for the post, Andy! All our dogs do/did the zoomies on occasion. We called it their “500” as in Daytona, Indy, etc. Except it was named after the dog doing it: The Bruiser 500, The Jerry 500, The Chopper 500, The Diesel 500! Wish I had a radar gun to measure their speeds!

    From https://twitter.com/desiringGod: “Read the Bible even when it feels like eating cardboard. And pray even when it feels like talking to a wall.”

    This really spoke to my heart today (12-6-2018) helping to remind me that I am to walk by faith not by my feelings. : )

    Movies I really enjoy:
    1__The Visual Bible movie ‘The Gospel of John’ at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47OkuvT5JFo

    3__And the best rendition of ‘Mary Did You Know?’ again IMO ever made by Kutless at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oU_xFicSDPs (using scenes from The Nativity Story)

    Be blessed!

    The Redcoats are attacking Boulder. The Americans there should start by charging them with Unalienable Rights violations.

      andy, Mexifornia is truly an apt name for that state. Stick a fork in it, it’s done. Working conservatives are attempting to flee this state, they see the handwriting on the wall and all that will be left are the illegals/moochers.

    My neighbor cookie bombed me.. We went to drop off something at her house and she gave us a lovely tin with Christmas cookies, including her famous bourbon balls. I was not prepared, I had no ammo to return the attack…. 😦 My husband just does not understand about cookie bombs… not at all. I was not planning on baking up here in Georgia. I whipped up a batch of Scottish short bread, so all I need now is a festive tin.

    I have followed another WP site for 5+(?) years for TIMELESSLADY as she always has interesting pieces for crafts, recipes and life in general. Today I received this post from her. This is a very handy tip for those of you who provide winter sustenance for our feathered creatures.

    Quick Tip & Pheathers – A Gritty Helping Hand
    [snip]
    Today while running some errands I stopped at the local pet store and bought some bird grit. I don’t have pet birds, but recently was reminded while reading through Country Wisdom & Know How that birds are vulnerable to digestion problems when they can’t scratch up and ingest grit from the frozen earth.

    Psalm 69 (KJV) for the Globalists and Swamp Creatures of Washington DC.

    16 Hear me, O Lord; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
    17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.
    18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.
    19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonor: mine adversaries are all before thee.
    20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.
    21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
    22 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
    23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.
    24 Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
    25 Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.
    26 For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.
    27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness.
    28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.

    Hi all!

    Another hell’ofa story –

    Arkansas Swamp Bleeds as Clintons Circle The Drain
    November 24, 2018 / 30 Comments
    Many have read sprinkles of press releases from the justice department regarding arrests and indictments coming out of Arkansas, but few have observed the magnitude of this swamp creature and all its tentacles. They rarely tie the individuals into the big picture in these press releases, so oftentimes, it’s a quick, “yay, another swamp creature down,” without realizing they all connect. Aside from local news outlets in Arkansas, that require paid subscriptions to read the news, the Arkansas swamp is getting little to no coverage.

    Remember the plane full of documents in Little Rock? Everyone was speculating as to who/what it could be about, and hoping it had to do with the Clinton Foundation investigations. Is it possibly connected to this ongoing investigation into legislator fraud? In August 2018, Deputy Attorney General Lloyd Warford, said that investigators have at least 4 million documents in a vault and another 200 gigabytes of information they have collected from the Department of Human Services. Warford also confirmed that more lawmakers are under investigation by the state, in cooperation with the federal investigation. They have already convicted over a dozen individuals in one case alone, several of which are former or current legislators, one former senator has already begun his 18-year prison sentence, and there are a slew of other individuals listed in indictments. It is quite an extensive list below.

    I have sympathy for those that cannot have children. I just get very uncomfortable when the medical community starts playing God. I don’t trust the “morals”. Especially with all this stuff going on about Transgender, and the the Chinese scientist playing with genetics. This could turn out monsters.

    IMO it’s a disaster waiting to happen playing around with this stuff treating human beings like scientific projects. Dehumanization…..

    The attitude of some that think they are above the Law is on full display. This attitude is a corrupting element in any society. Worth your time to watch and share.

    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.

    “After watching her husband rip into pro-death senators who used Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in attempts to derail the appointment of her husband to the U.S. Supreme Court, Ashley is asking all people of faith to unite in praying Psalm 40, which reads:”

    “BE PLEASED, O LORD, TO DELIVER ME, LOOK DOWN, O LORD TO HELP ME. LET THEM BE CONFOUNDED AND ASHAMED TOGETHER, THAT SEEK AFTER MY SOUL TO TAKE IT AWAY. LET THEM BE TURNED BACKWARD AND BE ASHAMED THAT DESIRE EVILS TO ME.”

    In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

    Just want you all to know, Sundance and adrem, all moderators and all the various commenters with funnies and insights, you all make a hugedifference in my life and I love you.

    It’s been a few years since I found the Treehouse for comfort after poor Jessica Chambers was murdered in Mississippi. It seemed like only the Treehouse cared enough to follow up on that awful crime.

    I don’t use antidepressants; however, I know people who do, and their pharmaceuticals are expensive. I need my own sort of antidepressants and winnamins, which the Treehouse provides generously. Just sent in my Christmas donation to the Treehouse, and tried to make it equal to a month of antidepressants… or winnamins, or whatever… wish I could have given funding equal to this last year’s supply, but I don’t have it in this month’s budget right now. We’ll see what 2019 brings. Praying with love and gratitude for all the people who care about our beloved country
