Thanksgiving 2017

For the Glory of God!

 

A Litany of Thanksgiving

Today, I make my Sacrament of Thanksgiving

I begin with the simple things of my days:

Fresh air to breathe,

Cool water to drink,

The taste of food,

The protection of house and clothes,

The comforts of home.

For all these, I make an act of Thanksgiving this day!

***

I bring to mind all of the warmth of humankind that I have known:

My Mother’s arms,

The strength of my father,

The playmates of my childhood,

The wonderful stories brought to me from the lives of many who have talked of days gone by when fairies and giants and all kinds of magic held sway;

The tears I have shed, the tears I have seen;

The excitement of laughter and the twinkle in the eye with its reminder that life is   good.

For all of these I make an act of Thanksgiving this day.

***

I finger one by one the messages of hope that awaited me at the crossroads:

The smile of approval from those who held in their hands the reins of my security;

The tightening of the grip in the simple handshake when I feared the step before me in the darkness;

The whisper in my heart when the temptation was fiercest and the claims of appetite were not to be denied;

The crucial word said, the simple sentence from an open page when my decision hung in the balance.

For all these , I make an act of Thanksgiving this day.

***

I pass before me the main springs of my heritage:

The fruits of the labors of countless generations who have lived before me, without whom my own life would have no meaning;

The seers who saw visions and dreamed dreams;

The prophets who sensed a truth greater than mind could grasp and whose words could only find fulfillment in the years which they would never see;

The workers whose sweat has watered the trees, the leaves of which are for the healing of the nations;

The pilgrims who set their sails for lands beyond all horizons, whose courage made paths into new worlds and far off places;

The saviors whose blood was shed with a recklessness that only a dream could inspire and God command.

For all of these, I make an act of Thanksgiving this day.

***

I linger over the meaning of my own life and the commitment to which I give the loyalty of my heart and mind:

The little purposes in which I have shared with my loves, my desires, my gifts;

The restlessness which bottoms all I do with its stark insistence that I have never done my best, I have never dared to reach for the highest;

The big hope that never quite deserts me, that I and my kind will study war no more, that love and tenderness and all of the inner graces of Almight affection will cover the life of the children of God as waters cover the sea.

***

All these and more than mind can think and heart can feel,

I make as my sacrament of Thanksgiving to Thee,

Our Creator, in humbleness of mind and simplicity of heart.

~ A poem by Howard Thurman, Thanksgiving 1959~

Don’t Think Party, Think MAGA!

By now it should be evident that there is only ONE political party in the United States and it has been to their advantage to set up a false “republican vs democrat” paradigm which has now been fully exposed as a lie.  The Constitution was written by moral people and it was intended to be a document for moral men.

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. -John Adams, 1798
This uniparty disdains us, they abhor everyday Americans, and their lens and filter is all about votes.  They don’t care about illegals, they just want their votes.  They don’t care about DACA, they want the votes and our money to pay for them before we figure out how we’re being taken.

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”  George Washington Farewell Address | Saturday, September 17, 1796

Our task is now to remove as much of the swamp as we can through our votes in 2018.  That’s every republican in the House and those republicans senators up for election. PLEASE. We absolutely have a responsibility as citizens of this great nation to take her back from the thiefs.

You know the republicans can rig elections just like the democrats.  How was it that Paul Ryan won in some kind of landslide in 2015, as unpopular as he is?

Now that Trump has stated and IS the leader of the republican party, Ryan and McConnell are no longer the news, or the sought after word.  Because they have shown themselves to be absolute tools of the elite.  McConnell likes to think he is being “gentlemanly” by not changing the Senate rules so that Trump’s agenda can be implemented.  Well “nice guys” finish last, and he is a fool if he thinks the Democrats wouldn’t change the rules in a minute if they could.

We are in a war with the elite, and all war is by deception.  Notice yet how you are being deceived?

No excuses. No retreat. No regrets.  And no surrender.  OUR TIME IS NOW!

 

 

Emerging from the ‘Valley of the Shadow of Death’

It seems like a long strech of river and barren sheer walls we have been traversing for a long time.  And still we face dangers we can sense but their shape is not yet discerned. Beautful, terrifying, challenging, heart-stopping…always a calm before the storm–all these words apply to our journey then and now.

From the unique Canyon Ministries, enjoy…

The 23rd Psalm

23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
