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~

Never in Vain

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour 1 Peter 5:8

September 10, 2001

September 11, 2001, about 8:00 a.m.

 

Most of the long-term members of the Senate and House served on committees that examined the events of 911 and organized all the terrible legislation that followed, like the Patriot Act, the endless war resolutions, and the draconian spying and assault on Americans.  Think hard about what has developed since then under both democrats and republicans.  War is a racket, war is always by deception, and the permanent political class has organized a “business model” that has become the swamp.  Think about your political awareness then, and now.

Here’s what the Clinton/Obama swamp–with republican help–created by trading guns and missiles, drugs, laundering money, and overthrowing or destabilizing regimes in the Middle East…on September 11, 2012

Benghazi, September 11, 2012

 

Now we should finally realize that the NWO’s war is against the American people and our Constitution.   There are not two parties, there is one, and they are doing the NWO’s business.  They delight in dividing us and inflicting terrible harm. It’s what the swamp is about, and this day of remembrance should remind us of this fact, and steel our souls for the struggles ahead.

Think about our politicians.  They know what’s going on and wrap themselves in the flag and patriotic speak, the colors of the parties, the things they work on.  Politicians defend the government, not the Constitution.  Oath of office? What’s that?

 

Happy New Year 2017!

Thanksgiving 2016

Since 2011 I’ve published this writing by Howard Thurman on Thanksgiving…and read it at gatherings more times than I can count.  This year an added gratefulness for our national “election” results….we simply used our system to outvote the fraud.

Did we dodge a bullet, or just buy a little more time?

Have a joyous, thoughtful, grateful, and reflective Thanksgiving.  Heal and rest from it all, no politics.

Fourteen Years On–Honoring Americans on 911

©2015 drkate

Fourteen years on, we are closer to finding the home-made culprits that pulled off the “collateral damage” event of September 11, 2001.  Those of us who are active and awake have learned so much since that time and knowledge is accelerating.  We don’t show all we know, as the time of the great separation of the wheat from the tares is underway (Matthew 33:30 KJV).

Remember, all of these great soldiers who passed before us, and now cannot get older, are asking after us all…

 

Psalm 23

  1. The lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
  2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters
  3. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake.
  4. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; they rod and thy staff they comfort me.
  5. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
  6. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

And justice will be done…
