Sunday May 12th – 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 †

      “M” is for the million things she gave me,
      “O” means only that she’s growing old,
      “T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
      “H” is for her heart of purest gold;
      “E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
      “R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
      Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
      A word that means the world to me.

      Instead of feeling sad, I am going to be positive today… That is what she would have wanted… I know it…

    Don’t look too hard for the ususal media circus over the Denver, CO STEM School shooting !. Seems the wise kids derailed the A-G’s opening salvo ! But as time passes, it turns out this event wasn’t a “bolt from the blue” and school officials had ample warning of perilious conditions there. They ( predictably ) reacted by persecuting the ‘ whistleblower ‘ ! At the time many in the
    “Gun Community ” wondered how teens could have obtained handguns. They couldn’t
    purchase them legeally . Now its reveled the father of one is a twice-deported illegal alien .
    But the main ” reason” IMNSHO why the MSM/A-G/Pols crowd want this incident disappear down the “memory hole ” are two . First a ‘ pro-active’ hero likely thwarted the perps’ plan – at the cost of his own life- which is contrary to the MSM/Pol “victimhood” mantra . Second, we now have both perps alive able to be examined and interviewed and that will shed even more unwanted sunshine into the dark corners of these events. We’ll know how they obtained their pistols . We’ll know their motivations . We’ll know about the culture existing in that STEM school – in detail . We’ll know – eventually – why its administration is persecuting one whistleblower. And a lot of Lib/Prog thinking is going to be called into question not merely here but in places like MSD and elsewhere dating back to the infamous Martin/Zimmerman case .

      My deepest condolences on your loss… Bless and keep you.

      My mother lived in NJ, and whenever I visited we would go to the Lenox factory store in Pamona… She loved Lenox.. On the day she was cremated, not far from there, we went to Lenox and bought a vase, a lovely vase… We had to jury rig a top,,, I believe we used a Lenox coaster, with silicon glue. She was interred next to my father, in this vase, I think she would have liked that…
      That is when I learned about cremains… anyway, a small bit went into the Atlantic Ocean, and a small bit went into the Pacific, and I had a relative that managed to sneak a teeny tiny bit into a space satellite.

      So, my mother is next to my father, and she is also circling the entire planet… But, a big part of her is sitting hear typing…

    here is a great book series of 3 books of historical fiction based on Post WWII – Reunification Germany for upper elementary/middle schoolers. I am not a great homeschool mom, not like the ones who write the books, do the blogs and are on display on pinterst but I do get my son great books to read, lots and lots of books. Most are older books (great resource is http://valerieslivinglibrary.com where I get lists of excellent books and authors) but I have found recent books as well. This series was great and I read it too! 🙂

    Another series of a more recently published author is here.

    We are now in the middle of reading this one
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0880622857/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    Drawbacks are that both series have a female as the main character but have plenty of male characters to help balance it out. The viking series is esp. good and goes between male/female points of view.

      Wow! I just posted the link of the book’s page on amazon and it came up huge with pictures! So sorry for taking up so much space unnecessarily.

      Since I am recommending books, here are two more series/authors to which I will won’t link but will just name. The Amazing Tales of Max & Liz/The Epic Order of the Seven series by Jenny L. Cote. It is Biblical Historical fiction so some liberties are taken but no Biblical doctrine/message is changed. It centers on time traveling animals, is cute but not “cutesy”. My son has read most of the series and really likes it. Very thick books so might be imitating to children who aren’t “into” reading. I love the way the series goes into American History and weaves Handel’s Messiah into the book on Jesus Christ.

      The 2nd series is: Nathan T. Riggins Western Adventures by Stephen Bly, upper elementary to middle school. Bly has anther series set in modern times that might be best for 7th+ as there are some real life but sinful situations (one dad lives with his girlfriend, divorce, drugs — but not the main characters!) and how the main characters deal with some real life situations. Good but my son was uncomfortable with it and not yet ready.

      Note: all specific books I have recommended above are Christian based/Christian characters with Christianity being part of the story or part of the characters life. We use many books published from 1900-1960s that are secular (although Christianity and church pop up surprisingly frequently in these books because they are not wiped out of history for the sake of keeping church/state/culture separate and many in our history where Christian as was our culture!). In modern books I tend to buy mainly Christian because the secular I can get at the library.

      PS: another great source for high quality book recommendations is homeschool curriculum web sites and catalogs. Even if one isn’t using the curriculum one can still use the books and homeschool curriculum companies are very particular about which books they include so are usually high quality, conservative books, often Christian.

      Just a thought: one needn’t be a homeschool family to have plenty of books around the house for your children, to teach your children to read for pleasure and to read together as a family, out loud or reading the same books. If your children or grandchildren are in public/private school don’t assume that you have no place in their education! Education is so much more than school, studying and school books!

      An enriched home life is so important even if we had the best schools and they taught proper civics, American History, etc. The books, movies, magazines, tv and music your children enjoy and see you enjoying create their reality and shape their character. Reading builds their world view and educates them on facts. Great way to spend time together and build memories!

    To Ponder

    Let me ponder on the Ascension of the Lord Jesus:

    1. How the Lord, while blessing His disciples, was lifted from the earth and borne to heaven.

    2. How the disciples watched Him as He was taken up, until a cloud hid Him from their sight.

    From “The Prologue from Ohrid” by Saint Nikolai (Serbian-born Bishop who reposed in tbe USA and was a former prisoner at Dachau) for Aptril 29th.

    The content in Saint Nikolai’s short reflections now shifts from the Resurrection to the Ascension of our Lord, God, and Saviour Jesus Christ in keeping with the annual cycles of the Church’s Calendar.

        The women disciples were loyal to Him when not all of the men were. Many of the women disciples are individually honored on their own Feast Days throughout the year.

        Here are some Hymns for today, a bit late.

        Dismissal Hymns.
        “When Thou didst descend unto death, O Life Immortal, then didst Thou slay Hades with the lightning of Thy Divinity. And when Thou didst also raise the dead out of the nethermost depths, all the powers in the Heavens cried out: O Life-giver, Christ our God, glory be to Thee.”

        “The noble Joseph, taking Thine immaculate Body down from the Tree, and having wrapped It in pure linen and spices, laid It for burial in a new tomb. But on the third day Thou didst arise, O Lord, granting great mercy to the world.”

        “Unto the myrrh-bearing women did the Angel cry out as he stood by the grave: Myrrh-oils are meet for the dead, but Christ hath proved to be a stranger to corruption. But cry out: The Lord is risen, granting great mercy to the world.”

        Kontakion. Second Tone.
        “When Thou didst cry, Rejoice, unto the Myrrh-Bearers, Thou didst make the lamentation of Eve the first mother to cease by Thy Resurrection, O Christ God. And Thou didst bid Thine Apostles to preach: The Saviour is risen from the grave.”

    The Command to Honor
    MAY 12, 2019

    Ephesians 6:1-3
    1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER (which is the first commandment with a promise), 3 SO THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU, AND THAT YOU MAY LIVE LONG ON THE EARTH.

    God’s commandment to honor parents included a promise. He told the Israelites to treat parents with respect so their “days may be prolonged in the land” that He was giving them (Ex. 20:12 Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the LORD your God gives you). This did not guarantee that respecting authority would necessarily mean survival until old age; the words “days” and “prolong” seem to imply productivity, strength, and satisfaction rather than a certain number of years.

    That divine promise still applies. Sadly, our chaotic world prizes independence over obedience and youthful opinion over the wisdom that comes with maturity. In today’s anti-God climate, we see children of all ages rebelling—but they often seem to escape discipline. This has led to two dangerous attitudes: One says that people need not accept responsibility for their actions, and the other permits neglecting the greater good in favor of personal goals. To find an example, simply look at our roads, where it’s not hard to find someone ignoring the posted speed limit.

    To build a Christ-honoring community within the worldly culture, believers should instruct children to honor parents and then appropriately discipline any failure to show respect. One important way to teach this lesson is by modeling honor—our families should see us treat our own parents with care and consideration.

    Honoring Mom and Dad is not a suggestion. The Lord has placed these important people in our life. Whether or not we feel they have served well in that capacity, we’re to obey God by offering them care and respect.
    intouch.org
    Dr. Charles Stanley

    1 Samuel 2:1 New King James Version (NKJV)
    Hannah’s Prayer
    2 And Hannah prayed and said:
    “My heart rejoices in the Lord;
    My horn is exalted in the Lord.
    I smile at my enemies,
    Because I rejoice in Your salvation.

    On Mother’s Day my Dad would go to Grimms Florist at the end of our street and buy three corsages for my Mother, my sister, and me. My Mother’s was red for her Mom, and ours white. We went to church and the scent of the carnation was wonderful … 🙂❤️

    “There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports,” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said on the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery.”

    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.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    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.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    I know it’s probably too late to post. But I just read this article & got mad.
    This week two school districts in Washington state have been caught promoting Islam.

    ..from wnd…
    “A legal team has dispatched a cease-and-desist letter to a school district in Washington state that promoted Islam through a Ramadan policy that provides special privileges for Muslim students.”

    The lack of self-awareness at Planned Parenthood is mind boggling. The president of PP sends out a special Mother’s Day message.

    Hi friends,
    I attached here a video about one of the spearhead units that will lead Israel in the next war.
    It is called Sayeret Golani. Sayeret means “scouts” and “Golani” is the name of a large combat brigade. The Sayeret are the elite and this is a very unique video that shows their training and some real footage of operations at the end. Note that not all the parts of the video are new and you can see some older weapons but it’s all real.
