Sunday December 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 †

    Dog that survived California wildfire guarded home for weeks

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A dog that survived the catastrophic wildfire in Northern California apparently guarded his home for nearly a month until his owner returned.

    Madison was there waiting when Andrea Gaylord, who fled on Nov. 8, was allowed back onto her burned property in Paradise this week.

    An animal rescuer who responded to Gaylord’s request to check on Madison first spotted the male Anatolian shepherd days after fire broke out.

    Shayla Sullivan said the outdoor guard dog was apprehensive and kept his distance. Sullivan left food and water for him regularly until Gaylord got back on Wednesday.

    Gaylord told news station ABC10 she couldn’t ask for a better animal. She added: “Imagine the loyalty of hanging in in the worst of circumstances and being here waiting.”

    Dog actually looks like a Great Pyrenees to me.

    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.

    Prayer for Justice Kavanaugh:

    Prayer to St. Michael
    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    Hopefully this bill be considered before Nance takes over and scuttles it…

    From Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler, Southwest Washington’s 3rd District…

    Providing relief for landowners, farmers
    It’s time for Congress to restore the more sensible definition of “navigable waters” and provide relief to farmers and landowners who have been hit hard by the costly “Waters of the U.S.” (WOTUS) rule. I recently introduced a bill to repeal this controversial regulation and clarify that the Clean Water Act remains in effect as it has been interpreted for more than four decades.

    The current WOTUS rule expands the definition of “navigable waters” under the Clean Water Act to include water that is not “navigable” under any previous interpretation or common sense definition. Under this rule, private landowners must obtain costly Clean Water Act permits when improving their land, costing thousands of dollars and years of wait time.

    The bill, titled Regulatory Certainty for Navigable Waters Act, would also require the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to act upon request within 60 days to determine whether water on a private property is a covered wetland under the Clean Water Act, relieving property owners from waiting lengthy periods of time for a costly review.

    It is unthinkable that D.C. bureaucrats and courts would allow the federal government to regulate non-navigable water on private property this way – overturning four decades of effective Clean Water Act protection of our lands. My bill is necessary to defend Southwest Washington residents from this egregious government power grab.
