Friends, brothers, acquaintances, members...
 
Thanksgiving... a time of reflection for all the blessings we have received and continue to receive.  We, as a Nation, are truly blessed.  Let us not turn aside from our Manifest Destiny, let us not forget WHY we are here (why our ancestors came here), let us not forget the sacrifices the Founding Fathers made to secure this nation and the VISION THEY had for it, let us not forget our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen who have all sacrificed so much to give us the opportunity to continue this great experiment in human development and leaning toward civilization.  We ARE, currently, the freest, most developed Nation on earth... Let us continue, let us not become lazy, let us not decend to baseness and poverty to satisfy the whims of the incompetent, the insecure, the greedy who lust for power over others but have none within them, none that they do not purloin from everyone else. 
These are blessings we currently HAVE... Let us not give them up... Let us continue...
 
Happy Thanksgiving and God bless you all...

Happy and a Blessed Thanksgiving to all.
 
I submit in regards to Dan's call to attention. We have to to recognize that we in America have two very different governments functioning in our nation. The one that is corrupt full of the selfserving, greedy and profanely immoral. And the rule of God's Kingdom. For yrs I have prayed believing and seeking God's rightousness and His Kingdom as He has instructed us to do. Gaining an understanding of His rightousness because it is so well defined in the scriptures. But not getting a good understanding of all that His Kingdom encompassed. Recently I've been hearing some pastors refer to His Kingdom as His government. That has been very helpful to me in grasping more about what a kingdom is about. It is not just all that is God's but also His way of how things are done. When that light finally came on for me it was a great relief. First it shows me that our prayers that "His kingdom come" and His "will be done" is not just a guide to how we are to pray but it is a place for us to live. Life is so much easier and lighter keeping my focus on Him and His way because, as long as I make myself give His way first and final athourity I get His provision. When I was keeping my focus on the corruption i was frustrated and angry just about all the time. And looking at that all the time I kept wondering "Why isn't God doing anything?" Just like when Peter walked on water. As long as he focused on Jesus he could walk. As soon as he looked at something else he got what that other thing had, wet and death.
Because of how our nation was founded and because most of us pray and seek God's Kingdom we have to realize that His Kingdom is in fact here. Now we have to realize that we will live under whichever government we choose to put our focus.
Yes we are responsibe to vote and stand for what is right. It is our duty as patriots and Christians. But that doesn't put us under subjection to the corruption. Only our focus on it will subject us to it.
Keep strong your faith and give thanks to God for His Kingdom and all the privision He supplies for His people.
God's blessings be upon you all. Amen
Salute!!!
Take care of Soldiers, Show em how its done and do it with em, Run to the Fight & and hold your ground! I die my men go home! If you're a NCO and this ain't you. GET OUT! GOD BLESS AMERICA!
