On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up


Hopefully, every Sunday, we can find something here that will build us up a little . . . give us a smile . . . and add some joy or peace, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God;
do not mourn nor weep.” . . .
“Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet,
and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared;
for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow,
for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”


My Cup Runneth Over

The phrase my cup runneth over is the King James Version’s wording of Psalm 23:5. Other versions say “my cup overflows.” A cup runs over when it cannot hold all that is being poured into it. The emphasis of Psalm 23 is the Good Shepherd’s loving care for His sheep (cf. John 10:11, 14). The Lord not only gives His people what they need (Psalm 23:1–2), but He supplies abundance in the midst of difficult times (verse 5). This abundance is not limited to material blessings under the Old Covenant, but it also includes the Holy Spirit’s future outpouring upon all who ask (Luke 11:13; Acts 2:1–4).

The Bible emphasizes the excessive love, blessing, and power that God desires to pour out on those who love Him (Malachi 3:10; Lamentations 3:22; Psalm 108:4). Jesus reflected God’s generosity when He said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). Paul continues that theme in Ephesians 3:20 and describes God as the One “who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.” Romans 8:37 promises that we are “more than conquerors through Him who loves us.” The message echoed in each passage is that of God’s excessive grace and provision for every area of our lives. He is not stingy, nor are His blessings confined to temporal things. In Christ we can have overflowing joy, overflowing love, and overflowing peace. We can bear everlasting fruit for God’s kingdom, and we can overcome impossible challenges when the Holy Spirit fills our hearts until our “cup runneth over.”

The Bible records many mighty things done when people were filled with (i.e., controlled by) the Holy Spirit (Exodus 31:2–3; Ezekiel 43:5; Luke 1:67; Acts 4:31). We are urged to be filled with the Spirit as well (Ephesians 5:18; Galatians 5:16, 25). However, as a glass cannot be filled with milk if it is already filled with mud, we cannot be filled with the Spirit when we are already filled with sin, pride, or self-will. Before we can be filled to overflowing, we must be willing to empty ourselves of everything that would hinder the Spirit’s working in our lives. It is only when our hearts are filled with God that we can accomplish all He desires to do in and through us. His grace knows no limits for those whose hearts are wholly His (2 Chronicles 16:9a). He desires to fill us with His Spirit until our cup runneth over.

I don’t know the origin of that painting or even if it could be AI, but there is a lot to see in the expression on his face. I see some sadness as well as determination. Also, keen observation and appraisal.

Yes, it’s a great image, wherever it came from!

Robert Baker

An interesting similarity between text and art is that both have to be interpreted.

Barb Meier

I checked the circle image at the top right against google.com and tineye.com and could not find a match or a similar logo to ID the source. Bing used to offer an image search, but that seems to have gone away or perhaps be part of their AI search.

It would never have occurred to me to think of them as traitors.

Those men fought a tyrant to be free.

The point is that they were “traitors” in the same sense that Trump is a “criminal.” IOW, not at all.

They are STILL considered TRAITORS/EXTREMISTS by the Deep State!

This is the 133 page FOIA document obtained from the Department of Defense entitled: AFSS 0910 EQUAL OPPORTUNITY AND TREATMENT INCIDENTS (EOTI) LESSON PLAN

Defense department teaching documents suggest mainstream conservative views are extremist

D. Extremist Ideologies

1. Introduction



• As noted, an ideology is a set of political beliefs about the nature of people and society. People who are committed to an ideology seek not only to persuade but to recruit others to their belief.

  :wpds_arrow: In U.S. history, there are many examples of extremist ideologies and movements. 👉 The colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule👈 and the Confederate states who sought to secede from the Northern states are just two examples.

Aubergine

In the eyes of the British government, they were most certainly traitors, and would have been treated as such had we lost the Revolutionary War. Read about how prisoners of that war were treated on the prison ship Jersey for an example of how the British felt about their upstart colonists:

“The groans of the sick, the ravings of the delirious, and the curses of the dying made the night a hideous ordeal. Covered by rags or the remnants of a blanket, their twisted bodies were sprawled on bare decks. The fetid stench of dysentery and unwashed, disease-ridden bodies, hung like a pall over the scene. No doctor or clergyman was there to ease the pain of body or mind, no helping hand or word of hope ever reached these unfortunate seamen whose only crime was that they had fought in freedom’s cause.

Each morning the hatches were opened and the prisoners allowed on deck. The guards shouted their raucous command, “Up on deck, you damned Yankee Rebels, and turn out your dead!” The still forms, sewed up in their remaining rags, were hoisted above by their comrades. Jersey averaged six bodies per day. The sick who could be moved were brought on deck for what benefit they might get from the sun and fresh air. Some men were assigned to washing down the decks while others were sent to relieve the constant watch at the pumps. When the ship dropped with the low tide, she rested on the bottom and mud oozed through her seams. The clogged pumps brought on the wrath of the guards who cursed and struck down the exhausted pumpers.

A burial party, under heavy guard, was forced to row their departed shipmates to a place on shore which was hardly above the high water mark. Here they dug a common grave and the bodies were interred. Very often high tides and rain washed away the soil, exposing arms and legs to rats and vermin. There was no litany or prayer said at these events. There was only the harsh scrape of the shovel and the impatient curses of the guards as they hurried their charges back to the ship. No record was kept of the dead; they were simply crossed off the roster. The daughter of the owner of a nearby tide-mill watched the proceedings from a window and kept a secret tally of the bodies. It was from her notes that the authorities got their figures.”

https://www.usni.org/magazines/proceedings/1963/february/old-jersey-prison-ship

One of my ancestors survived that prison ship. Those men risked EVERYTHING, including their very lives, to found our great country. And we should never forget it.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Thank you for this. We need to study such hardship, because our evil enemy will inflict it upon us – and worse.

Just like the Nazis condoned murderous serial killers and pedophiles as camp guards and kapos, we can expect racists and sadistic monsters like the January 6 defendants are getting.

Aubergine

If Trump doesn’t win.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I expect bad things for some period of time even if he does win. Maybe especially if he does win.

I really think they’re at the point of never letting things get back to anything resembling normal Constitutional order. They’re priced themselves out of peaceful coexistence. Whatever they’ve done in the past, they’re willing and able to do again.

Some patriots will suffer in the areas they control, until communism is actively put down in those areas.

Aubergine

I think you’re right, sadly.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I wish I was not, but I think they think escalation is their only option.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I think they were counting on it all along to provide the final excuse for cracking down…forever.

They think if a civil war erupted they could win it.

Maybe, given “help” from other countries (which Biden or whoever would ask for) and all the terrorists, etc. they’ve been importing, they are even right, not withstanding how many guns we own.

TheseTruths

In the eyes of the British government, they were most certainly traitors, and would have been treated as such had we lost the Revolutionary War.

Yes. They were treated as such until we won the war, as you described.

I can’t imagine what it was like to sign the Declaration of Independence. They knew they were committing treason in the eyes of their country. But for us, the inheritors of liberty, they are founders.

Aubergine

I can’t really imagine it, either, but I love to try!

“How can you support a criminal?”

________

I don’t. DJT is not the criminal.

The criminals are the conspirators who colluded with a Soros D.A. to bring false charges against him in a kangaroo court with Dirty Judge Merchan and 12 D-rat jurors.

And now that you have accomplished your corrupt objective, prepare to reap what you have sown.

Knowing that precedent has now been set, and that turnabout is fair play 😎

Today’s ‘GOP’ has never supported Trump, not one single day since he came down the escalator in 2015.

They are dirty and corrupt and they hate Americans.

DJT was never chosen by the corrupt GOP, he was chosen by the American People, very much against the will of the professional R-cons.

It was a hostile corporate takeover of the corrupt R-con party.

Do not count on or expect them to do anything except look for opportunities to stab DJT in the back, because that is what they are.

Gail Combs

35 hotels in Palm Beach, United States of America.

AND It is the OFF season in Florida.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

No, I didn’t ask if it had enough rooms. Does it have A ROOM big enough to seat thousands of people in for the convention itself?

We’re usually talking a room big enough to hold an NBA game in (or a National Hockey League game in); or a rock concert; seating for thousands. This is usually a sports arena or a convention center.

E.g. this one might work (though I’m not recommending it; it’s just an example of what we need):

Trump has launched a TikTok account.

pgroup2

I thought tiktok was supposed to be a chinese spying app.

RAC

The whole internet is a spying thingy. One must, as they say, conduct oneself accordingly.

pgroup2

If an app is designed to be a spy app, then what is this ‘act accordingly’ of which you speak? And even if the app is innocent, do we really think it’s a good idea to have our leader lending an air of respectability since the app is seen as evil by many?

I don’t think DJT being on TikTok is a good idea and I sure don’t see a benefit to our side.

RAC

If PDJT thinks he can use Tic Tok to his advantage I trust that he will use caution just like on the internet,and for that matter mobile phones, trust no one say nothing of importance to a potential eavesdropper.

If the (totally corrupt, criminal, renegade, rogue) gov’t is opposed to Tic-Tac, the first question to ask is probably “why”.

And whatever answer they give will be a lie, because they cannot say anything that is not a lie.

At this point, and for some time now, the best and safest thing to do or believe is the opposite of whatever the rogue gov’t says.

This is from memory so it might not be accurate, but I thought Trump had warned people to get off of TikTok. Then a few months ago he changed his position, and now he has joined it. He must know something that we don’t.

bbinindy

That is where he can communicate with young people.

para59r

Yep.. that’s the primary reason, plus there was pressure to put American’s in control at tik-tok. Not sure what the final read out on that was, but somethings were apparently massaged enough to make the China thing not a big deal anymore.

From OT:
Do Not Underestimate – Icon Status – President Trump is now on TikTok
June 2, 2024

SD: “I said immediately following the guilty verdict from the biased and manipulated New York City jury, that District Attorney Alvin Bragg “just elevated President Trump to countercultural icon status.” [link] The reason is simple, Americans inherently sense corruption, unfairness and can feel when something is profoundly wrong.

comment image

While many Americans may not fully understand the granular issues at the heart of the Lawfare cases, they know President Trump has not done anything wrong in comparative scale to the attacks and vitriol leveled against him. This “sense” of bearing witness to gross injustice creates an outcome of support for the person being targeted.

Icons are created when the regime in power defines outlaws, while the injustice within the definition makes them heroes to the public. President Trump went from being the greatest political influence in modern history to being a countercultural icon as soon as the jury reached their biased and manipulated decision.

It is with this context in mind we now watch the political evolution of Donald Trump continue. Do not underestimate the scale of this move.

The theme of MAGA Trump now goes from diplomatically -albeit forcefully- directing public attention via a finger pointed toward the corruption, to angrily pointing his middle finger of “f**k you” specifically at the corrupt officials.

Yes, an unrestrained icon is born! This is the moment when The Big Ugly potential has its greatest value.

At this juncture, the self-restraint, retained niceties and mannerisms of polite familiarity change. The target accepts the polite plea for decency is futile and accepts, no, embraces their outlaw status. Things change quickly.

The entire DC system is aligned against the social media platform TikTok; however, there is a cultural dynamic at play in the background within the user demographic. Additionally, TikTok is arguably the only widely used social media platform that is not directly influenced by and controlled by the Dept of Homeland Security and USA intelligence apparatus. That reality is likely why Washington DC hates it.

Embracing his position outside the cultural norms of the established political system, President Donald J Trump now joins TikTok.

Remember the context. The DC system and BIG SURVEILLANCE intel tech are in alignment against the platform that Donald J Trump just supported.

…..and the professional political class are going to go apoplectic!

The people within the system who have targeted President Trump for years, will now scream about the “felon” undermining U.S. national security policy regarding TikTok and China. Oh, how they will clutch their pearls over the metadata of Americans being absorbed, controlled and used by those in Beijing who want to do nefarious misdeeds against Americans.

It’s okay for Google, META, Instagram, FaceBook, Twitter, etc. to harvest the data of American citizens and for the U.S. intelligence apparatus to control data, store data, and search the private data of Americans while identifying subversive activity….. However, it is not okay for an alternative platform to permit content that is out of reach of the Intelligence Community control mechanisms. That’s exactly why the U.S. government hates TikTok.

Do not diminish the ramification that President Trump is triggering with this move.

I don’t think this has any teeth. Further, you can’t believe a word the Left says.
SORRY LEFTISTS: Former Obama Adviser David Axelrod Says Idea of Replacing Joe Biden on 2024 Ticket is a ‘Fantasy’ (VIDEO)

“Listen, that is a fantasy that I hear a lot,” Axelrod responded. “I like Joe Biden and I worked with him and I was grateful to work with him and I think he’s done a lot of very, very fine things as president for which history will be kind him. That’s not the question. The question is whether at this age you should have run, but he did run. And right now he is the nominee of the Democratic Party.”

“This is not 1968 where the convention is gonna decide. We changed the rules. Voters nominate a candidate. They’ve nominated Joe Biden, and he’s not going anywhere,” Axelrod told Maher. “There’s no generation of elders who are gonna go to the White House and tell him that he can’t run. He is going to run and one of the reasons they want an early debate I’m sure is to focus people on this is the choice! It’s Trump and Biden.”

Axelrod knows that Kamala Harris is the new Face of Obama (TM).

They support Biden, knowing that he turns into Kamala Harris at the appropriate time.

This is too simple for most people to understand. We will never have a “choice” over this woman. Her electability matters not one iota.

Yes, this is big. That connection not only opens up a can of worms – it gives fishing rights to the House and Senate, opportunities for citizen lawsuits, and much more.

Thanks for bringing this, RAC. I wasn’t positive how it works so did a search on DuckDuckGo for “how the moon rotates around the Earth”. Then I chose to see Videos. This one helped me, but I still wanted to wait for Steve’s thoughts rather than diving in with my simple diving in.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

This one is better than the one I used in my Moon post (which was designed to illustrate a different point).

Note that they superimposed faint blue lines on the moon to help one distinguish how it turns; helpful especially during “new” moon near the top of the diagram where the surface features are in shadow.

Barb Meier

Yes, the blue line on the moon helps a lot. Whoever made the video did a great job.

RAC

Thanks that’s a good one, looking at the one from the side bar it took me a while to figure out the the earth was rotating fast.

Barb Meier

You’re welcome! Happy to help. It is hard for me to visualize 3D connections without a video across time. Graph analysis is like that too.

There’s an analytic you can run on a table of data called articulation points. If you watch how nodes (dots) connect with lines across time, you can see the nodes that you could remove to break the network into smaller networks.

If that is a terror group or multiple gangs or mobsters, you can find critical ones to pull out of the mix to divide them and make less troublesome groups.

For example, if Mohamed is the only IED maker, target him first. If you get him in prison or otherwise unable to make IEDs, all the terrorists he gave IEDs to can still cause harm, but not as much.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

If we can’t see it, then it can’t see us. So I’m not sure what you’re trying to say here.

RAC

I thought that the side we never see at night was turned toward us in daytime. If that is not so then disregard my comment, but if it is so then any apparatus on the the side we don’t see at night would not be visible to us in daytime even though it would be pointing at us.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

It’s not so…and I will explain. The side we never see at night, is never seen because it never faces the Earth.

An analogy, imagine you’re dancing with someone, and you’re holding both their hands and the two of you are spinning in a circle. They always face you, but someone not on the dance floor will see all sides of each of you. This is tidal locking and I think I actually covered it in my most recent “science post” about the Moon (see sidebar).

Unfortunately my analogy is not a very good one because even though the Moon is constrained to always face the same way towards Earth, Earth is not constrained to always face the same way to the Moon. The dancer analogy describes a situation where *both* bodies are constrained to always face each other.

Another problem (a much more basic one) with your original thought is there are plenty of occasions where you can see the Moon in daytime, and even then, you see the same side you always see at night.

Thanks for explaining that, am trying to imagine it in my head, it’s not easy. I’ll have a read at the relevant science post.

IIRC there’s an animation in it that will help.

edit: Confirmed, there is an animation…the intent was to show the difference between “not rotating” and “rotating at the same rate that it orbits” but the left hand side illustrates the actual situation.

Just got back from there now, phew 70+ years of wrongthink takes some ironing out.
So the moon rotates on its own axis whilst at the same time orbiting the earth and the time it takes to orbit the earth is such that only one side of it is facing the earth ever, and it takes somewhere around a month to complete its orbit round the earth.
I looked at the illustration, magnified and each side separately.

An interesting place to wander to!

A few centuries ago very wealthy people would indulge in clockwork models of the solar system called orreries. And yes, lots of gearing if it’s to be fully automated.

It would make a great carnival ride!

My dad served in WWII with an Illinois man named Gene Jackson. He and his wife Betty were among my parents’ dearest friends. After the war everyone came home from California and Gene started building his own carnival rides.

Betty and Gene stayed in that business throughout their lives. They went to Florida in the winters and then had carnivals in small towns across Missouri and probably in southern Illinois too in warmer weather. I loved visiting with them because we got to go on all the rides for free and they were so kind.

I remember seeing one of the ride workers getting onto the merry go round after it had started moving. Being a kid, I tried it too. I grabbed one of the vertical bars, but could not swing myself up into it. Without a second thought, the ride operator, came around and pulled me on up. I don’t remember anyone fussing at me about my foolishness. I learned that part the hard way… LOL

For a time, when they were older, Betty and Gene also ran a Dairy Queen in a small Missouri town. The carnival was a family business and their two children grew up in that world.

In his own way, my Dad was great at making family fun for us too. Dad got us out on the Mississippi River each summer. We would swim (with a skibelt on), do the twist in beach sand that was waterlogged so we ended up down to our knees in sand, wave at passing barges, fish, and BBQ. Sometimes we would go through the locks at the nearest dam across the river. It was cool holding the ropes as the water level dropped or rose.

It always confuses me when kids say they are bored… I wish all kids could have dads more like mine or his brothers and friends.

How can you be bored when you have all of the great outdoors available? And books to read, and crafts and….

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Ah but if your parents won’t let you leave the house because they’re either afraid you’ll be snatched (a scare-monger that’s quite common these days) OR afraid you’ll be reported for child neglect (an actual real hazard)…then they’re cooped up with likely nothing to do but watch TV or play computer games. (And they probably can’t read thanks to our stupid “education” system.)

This one is from 1766, before Uranus was discovered. Jupiter shown with four moons, Saturn with even more. (Jupiter has four BIG moons and a bunch of tiny ones that couldn’t be seen with the telescopes we had back then, Saturn has one BIG moon and a number of intermediate-sized ones they had no trouble seeing back then, plus a bunch of tiny ones).

Our moon is in this device, but it happens to be right smack dab behind Mars (fourth ball out from the Sun) in the photo. You can see the arm and pivot for it below Mars.

Almost certainly one of the key skills to having a “layman’s feel” for astronomy is to be able to visualize what’s going on, and unfortunately that was the hardest thing to teach without expensive “toys” in science classrooms.

Now of course we have somebody doing excellent animations. There’s also a piece of software (not sure what its name is) that will let you pick a position in space and then create a fast movie of what you’d see (I may have posted one of those for an eclipse discussion, you start out looking from Earth from very far away and then the Moon passes by, not directly in front of the Earth from your point of view, but almost, so you can see the shadow cross.

And then on the other hand (and this is a blatant digression you can ignore; it’s a different subject):

I’ve yet to find a good animation for describing precession of the equinoxes in such a way that you can understand what it would do to the night sky…I found one years ago that was close, but the guy doing the animation was having the point of view orbit the earth, which completely confused the point. Because of that, It took me a while to figure out it was a correct video, just done stupidly.

The good news is you won’t live long enough to be affected by precession of the equinoxes, unless you are part of that secret race of people who have five digit lifespans. The bad news is the phenomenon often gets referenced in stuff ranging from pseudo-science to fringe, speculative stuff about the ancients.

AH – that is what it’s called – the “precession of the equinoxes”!!!

I was using a GLOBE, and trying to think of sunrise and sunset during equinoxes, in particular where the sun would be during mornings and evenings, at US latitudes. It’s complicated!!!

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Be very careful you’re thinking about the same thing I am when I use that phrase.

I’m referring to the fact that the Earth’s axis shifts its orientation in such a way that it retains it’s 23.5 degree tilt with respect to the plane of the Earth’s orbit, but nevertheless, will eventually have northern hemisphere summer where it presently has northern hemisphere winter. That causes the north celestial pole draw a large circle in the sky. It takes about 24,000 years to make a complete circle.

One thing I really hate about many globes is that they draw this tilted line for the ecliptic on the globe…but that gives the impression that the line (representing a plane) is attached to the Earth. I’d rather they created a ring attached to the mount that the Earth rotates under. I could use that to not just explain the ecliptic properly, but could even explain precession of the equinoxes. As it is I have to tell people that no the Sun isn’t over the Gulf of Guinea on the first day of Spring.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Gotcha! So you’re talking about the precession of the Earth’s axis of rotation against the sky, that moves us through the zodiac constellations at DAWN over 24000 years, and THAT’S WHY all the big deal about “Age of Aquarius”.

I was thinking of a smaller cycle – the shift in how the Earth “faces” the sun during the year. What is that called? And which direction does that move in, during the year?

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

As far as I know it’s just called “the seasons” or maybe “Earth revolving around the sun” (I think most astronomers use the word “revolution” to distinguish it from the rotation about the axis).

I’m not sure what you think might be moving so I’m not sure what your last question actually means.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

OK, here is a properly mounted globe (alas it’s expensive as hell at $2K but it is a 20 inch globe).

comment image

The horizontal “ring” around the globe properly represents the ecliptic, i.e. the plane of the Earth’s orbit.

Imagine placing that some 50 feet away from a light bulb (representing the Sun). Imagine you are directly east of that light bulb, and set it up so the axis tilts toward the east (away from the Sun). That’s northern hemisphere winter. Then, pick it up, and, without changing the orientation of the base, move it to the other side of the “Sun”. You’re now west of the Sun, with the axis still tilted toward the east, but now the tilt is toward the Sun, northern hemisphere summer. You can walk in a circle around the sun with this, as long as you always keep the axis tilted toward the East (and you walk from east to north to west to south) you’re demoing the seasons.

Excellent – I get it. My question is then simply which way do you walk with a “Globe North Is Up” globe, in a “We Are Standing South and Looking North” room, as you described East and West before us, to mimic the actual order of the seasons? Or stated differently, does the Earth revolve clockwise or counter-clockwise in your described model?

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

As seen from above the north pole, counter clockwise.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Thank you!!!

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Was clarifying and extending when you replied. Here’s what I tried to add:

As seen from above the north pole, counter clockwise.

That’s true of the Earth’s spin about its own axis, and also of orbital motion about the Sun…and for that matter the Sun’s own rotation. Almost everything “spins” counter clockwise in our Solar System. This is called “prograde.” Major exceptions being Venus’s daily rotation, Uranus’ daily rotation, and the orbit of Triton about Neptune. Minor exceptions are a lot of the tiny outer moons of the outer planets (meaning they’re probably captured asteroids). The “clockwise as seen from over the north pole” direction is called “retrograde”

cthulhu

I thought it was “deosil” and “widdershins”.

(Beware, there’s another version of the video where everything is the same…except the Earth is rendered “upside down”. Doing that makes it nonsense (all circular motion is the wrong way, and his verbiage is talking about the North when it should be the south, and vice versa. I spotted that quickly, and looked in the comments to see if anyone had called him on it–he apologized for the goof and posted THIS video.)

There has been talk for decades about eventually building a radio telescope there. Not so that it can’t be seen from Earth, but because Earth is noisy what with Fake News being broadcast constantly. None of that “seeable” from Farside.

(I tend to think of radio as being audible/not audible which makes sense given what we oftentimes use those frequencies for, but it’s really another form of light.)

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

MY CUP OVERFLOWS

His truth overwhelms deeply and daily;
Manifesting blessings aptly and ably;
By those who accept Jesus as Lord;
Whose actions – through faith – afford accord!

His love continues to light up a world;
Congested with turmoil – in truth – unfurled;
Perverse with evil – at every turn;
Wherein for relief – many hearts will yearn!

Justifying – His Word – shines forthwith;
In the least likely place – truth dispels myth;
Just when you think you have heard enough;
The tough get tender; the tender get tough!

The Warring Angels send the demons flying;
The Comforting Angels curtail the lying;
The Spirit surrounds the afflicted in truth;
And dispels the myth created in youth!

Through prayer and remorse, the cold heart softens;
Normally – not quickly – nor as often;
However – at times – the Spirit moves swiftly;
And Grace flows freely to heal quite quickly!

Witnessing the swiftness surely astounds;
The Power of the Spirit – it surrounds;
All who were connected through the airwaves;
Can have no doubt in mind – that Jesus saves!

My Cup Overflows with gratitude;
Happiness reigns without platitude;
No admonition to reel this soul in;
The Love of Jesus flows freely within!

All Praise and Honor and Glory are His;
In Him, Through Him, and With Him it is;
The gift of His Spirit indwelling within;
The ransom He paid – the high price of sin!

Let your cup overflow with happiness today;
Where there is a will; there will be a way;
Let your cup overflow with happiness today;
Where there is a will; there will be a way;
Patience is a Virtue; a Virtue is a Grace;
Put ‘em both together – you get a Happy Face!

Understood! We’ve got your back here.
Here’s what Yours Truly’s counselors have suggested as Stress Busters:
Breathing exercises — not very deep breathing, “belt-level” is fine
Physical Exercise — even if it’s done sitting down. There’s even “Chair Yoga” that can be performed.
Meditation / Prayer — this includes reciting mantras and reading spiritual works out loud
Slow Down the Pace
Let go of what you can’t control (that’s hard!)
Cutting down on sugar and caffeine intake
Hydration
Talking with trusted family / friends
Write it out
Getting enough good sleep
Doing puzzles, crafting, etc.

Do not forget the walk in a tranquil woods.

Forest Bathing: What It Is and Its Potential Benefits

….“The forest has higher oxygen levels compared to urban or indoor environments,” she continues. “As you breathe in the fresh air within a forest, you’re inhaling oxygen-rich air, which can support proper oxygenation of your blood and subsequently benefit your brain function.”

Forests are also chock full of phytoncides, which are antimicrobial compounds released by trees and plants.

“Inhaling these compounds during forest therapy sessions may benefit the immune system and contribute to stress reduction,” Dr. Albers says. “And the pleasant aromas of nature can have a positive impact on mood and emotional well-being.” In other words, forest therapy is also aromatherapy. Add the mental health benefits of walking to this cocktail, and you’ve got a recipe for better mental and physical health on your hands….

Interesting piece from Dr. Paul Alexander, sort of a “free form rant”:

https://palexander.substack.com/p/45-trump-must-wipe-them-out-take
Yours Truly: Dr. Alexander, IMO, is correct on something: now that Donald Trump is “convicted”, the same entities who did this to him want to kill his children — or jail them too.
What one disagrees with is Dr. Alexander’s statement that Donald Trump “will not be in this world long…”, unless Dr. Alexander means living beyond 100 years of age.

On the other hand, one can understand the sentiments of Dr. Alexander.
The statement by David Plouffe MUST NOT come to pass. IMO, it’s not just about Donald Trump (although that is hugely important.) It’s also about people who support Mr. Trump. It’s about people who are uncovering and spreading the truth about COVID-19 and the COVID-19 “vaccines.”

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

It’s properly “tsar” not “tzar.” I know that there are sites that spell it tzar but they’re flat out wrong.

The original Russian word is “царь”. and that first letter represents a /ts/ sound. Many English users will have a seizure before they can pronounce /ts/ at the beginning of a word (though they have no trouble with the sound in the middle or end as in “pizza” or “its”) but it’s a /ts/, and I can’t understand the fetish for spelling it “tz.” (And “cz” makes little sense either; in no language that we could have borrowed the word from does that spell /ts/)

I ran into an article that claims there’s a generic word for ruler that the Russians spell with “tz” that gets confused for царь (specifically the Russian monarch) but that makes no sense to me; Russians can’t spell anything that way because they don’t use our alphabet. But even if that article is actually right, Nicholas I was a tsar, not a tzar.

https://www.revolutionary-war-and-beyond.com/martha-washington-is-born.html

On this day in history, June 2, 1731, Martha Washington was born at her father’s estate in New Kent, County, Virginia. Martha Dandridge was the firstborn child of wealthy planter John Dandridge. As a child, Martha received a basic education, which was unusual for girls in that era. She was married at the age of 18 to Daniel Parke Custis, an even wealthier planter than her father, who was 20 years older than she.

Martha and Daniel lived at Daniel’s plantation, which was ironically called The White House. They had four children over the next few years, two of whom live past toddlerhood. Unfortunately, Daniel died in 1757, when Martha was only 26, leaving her in charge of a vast network of plantations covering over 17,000 acres in 5 counties and 285 slaves. With the assistance of her late husband’s business manager, however, Martha learned the intricacies of planning, managing and harvesting the tobacco crop and selling it to London merchants.

Martha was also now responsible for her two children, John Parke Custis, known as Jacky, and Martha Parke Custis, known as Patsy, who were only 2 years and 1 year when their father died. Years later, Martha would be stricken with grief because both children would die young. Patsy died at the age of 17 from an epileptic seizure and Jacky died at the age of 21 from “camp fever” contracted at the Battle of Yorktown.

Martha met and married George Washington in 1759. It is believed they knew each other for only a matter of weeks before he proposed and she accepted marriage. The two moved to Mount Vernon with Martha’s young children and began an idyllic life that by all accounts was loving and harmonious.

When the American Revolution broke out, Martha spent much of the next 8 years home alone at Mount Vernon, but she did travel to Washington’s encampments several times in the winters where she comforted her husband and entertained the officers and their wives. She was also known for rallying women, especially the wealthy, to give money to the Revolutionary cause and make supplies, such as blankets and clothing for the soldiers.

Toward the end of the Revolution, when young Jacky died, he left four children as well. Two of them ended up living permanently with George and Martha. Eleanor Parke Custis, called Nelly, was only 2 when her father died and George Washington Parke Custis, called Wash or Tub, was only 6 months. Since Martha’s children were all now dead and since George and Martha had no children of their own, they raised Nelly and Wash as their own.

Martha was a very private person and did not enjoy the public attention when her husband became President. She lived with him in New York and Philadelphia, where the capital was then located. She entertained guests and dignitaries with lavish dinner parties, but this was a duty to her and not necessarily an enjoyment.

After Washington’s presidency ended, Martha hoped to return to the quiet life at Mount Vernon, but a steady string of guests constantly arrived to visit her husband. When Washington passed away in 1799, Martha was grief stricken and was known to frequently say how much she missed him. When her own death neared less than 3 years later, Martha burned all the letters ever written between herself and her husband. Only two letters between them have survived. For this reason, very little is known about the personal relationship of the first President of the United States and his wife, and this is exactly how the very private Martha Washington intended it.

I didn’t know that George Washington had a stepson who died during the Revolution.

Thank you for this. Yours Truly brought it up yesterday regarding if President Trump’s Secret Service is disallowed to be by him if President Trump is sentenced to jail. Now here’s the POS Thompson who introduces this bill.

Upon further reflection, Yours Truly will add:
One wonders if Michael Whatley and Lara Trump have the “internal fortitude” to withstand the pressure to have all RNC support for President Trump’s 2024 campaign stopped, and for President Trump to be “disallowed” on the 2024 RNC ticket, which pressure is undoubtedly going to arise if not already begun.
One wonders if a 2024 RNC ticket of Pence-Haley (or some other non-Trump ticket) is not already being “whispered about” among “certain” RNC members.

I vote to strip Demonic commie Bennie Thompson of all federal protection NOW.

I think he should get the TRUMP TREATMENT.

His life and effects should be combed thru to see what laws HE BROKE. Any bets he has sold classified Docs? We KNOW he has sold his vote!

Good on inviting the FEDs so they can be put on the record for acknowledging their roll of do’s and don’ts so that local LE can not be hoodwinked in the field by fed berders.
