Saturday Morning Coffee Break & Prayer Revival

8 13 coffee.jpg


A little coffee with one's cream? Unlike my soul, black and bitter.


***

Good morning Moron Horde. Just a couple of rules before the Prayer Revival.

1) Opine and/or bloviate away in this open thread.
2) Be nice to one another including the dastardly swamp critters.
3) For heaven's sake, no running with sharp objects.
4) Enjoy your weekend, or don't enjoy it. It's all up to you.

AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to me, “Annie’s Stew” at apaslo atsign hotmail dot com. Prayer requests are generally removed after four weeks unless we receive an update.

Prayer Requests:
5/28 – FortWorthMike requests prayers for his grandniece, Chloe, and her family, to find a kidney to transplant. Chloe is a toddler who has been on this prayer list before, and it has helped her. She was born with bad kidneys and had them removed soon after birth. She’s had multiple health issues, and is now getting daily dialysis at home. Her mother’s kidneys aren’t a match, and her father’s are a match, but are too large for her little body. Thanks for your prayers!
7/23 Update – Little Chloe is having a lot of bladder infections, as the medical team works to stretch her bladder (in preparation for receiving a kidney). There have been so many infections that her bladder may need to be removed. Please keep praying: for a kidney match, for her health, and for her worried family.

7/8 – TecumsehTea asks for prayers for her dearest friend, who came down with Covid and is very ill. She is almost 70 and severely immunocompromised. She did not vax and has made it thus far, but she traveled recently. She is taking ivermectin. The Lord holds her in His hand, and He’s in charge, but it doesn’t hurt to ask Him for healing.
7/19 Update – The friend is slowly improving with ivermectin. Her lungs remain clear, but she is still weak, in pain, and has headaches and fatigue and nausea. Even the meds for nausea made her gag and vomit! Thank you for your prayers.
8/4 Update – TecumsehTea sends many thanks for the prayers. Her friend made if through covid. It was rough, but thank God for ivermectin and answered prayers. She is still fatigued and weak but recovering.

8/20 Update – Lauren is back at work and sounds very good and very upbeat. Thank you for your prayers.

7/18 – Emmie asked for prayers for God’s guidance and His will do be done regarding the sale of their house.
7/28 Update – The potential buyer decided it wouldn’t work for them. The house is officially listed (in a semi-rural area of Colorado). She would appreciate prayer that God would bring together the property and the people who can make good use of it.

7/19 – Fenelon Spoke asked for prayers as she attended the local Board of Education meeting, about the grooming of kids, transgenders, etc. The BOE is paying a group of LGBT teens to tell their stories, and the teacher’s union has had a drag queen show. Please pray for protection for the moms and dads defending their kids.

8/6 Update – K is out of the hospital and still recuperating. She has some lifestyle work to do.

7/26 – N.L.Urker needs a job badly, and prayers are appreciated.

7/26 – Nurse Ratched asked for prayers for Ann, who had a fall recently and is in ICU. She is recovering but has a long row to hoe.

7/30 Update – Mom came through surgery fine. They are waiting for the lymph node testing results.

7/28 – Jewells45 sends prayers of thanksgiving that their friend is doing well, after he had a heart attack while in recovery after surgery. There was 100% blockage in one of his arteries, and the medical team quickly took care of that.
7/30 Update – Jewells45 is “finally back to my normal goofy self”, and her daughter is healing, but it’s going slowly.

7/30 – Moki asks for prayers. Her cancer surgery has been postponed for 4 months so she can go through a series of extremely invasive and even 1 dangerous test, to prove that she will wake up from anesthesia. If she refuses the tests, they refuse to perform the cancer surgery. Her cancer is renal cell carcinoma, localized to one kidney at this time.

7/30 – Nova Local found our she has the C17 deletion form of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, about 30 years earlier than people normally get it. While it’s not curable, it could be a lot worse.

7/30 – Tonypete asked for prayers for his neighbor Karen. She is in her late 80s, and fell at home recently and gashed her head and broke her hip. She has Alzheimer’s and cancer. Her cancer is under control, but will probably remain in a nursing care unit until the end. Her loving husband simply can’t care for her at home anymore. He also asked for prayers for his granddaughters: C is 8 and has a broken foot. No one knows how this happened(!?) E is 13 and completely out of control on social media. The girls have an unfit, alcoholic mother and an inattentive father. Tonypete and his wife continue to try and gain custody, but family court is not on their side. Additionally, a friend named Marsha recently discovered she has liver and pancreatic cancer, and her prognosis is poor.

8/2 – Hadrian the Seventh asked for prayers. He got the results of his heart exam, and his heart is fine, but they noticed some slight enlargement of the aorta. He has to go back for a CAT scan to find out what it looks like behind his heart, whether it’s still enlarged or not.

8/3 – Fenelon Spoke requests prayers for healing for a congregation member named Dorian, who has a bad case of Covid. Thanks so much!

8/4 – Defenestratus asks for prayers for his young cousin, who was rushed to the hospital for another case of myocarditis. It’s his second episode since he got the vaccine (after having had Covid). He’s incredibly smart, athletic, driven, as well as humble and kind.

8/9 – Fenelon Spoke asks for prayers for her church organist, Jessie, who is having pain and intestinal issues. Thanks so much!

8/10 – Aetius451AD would appreciate prayers for her aunt, who is going in for surgery for cancer. They think it has not spread and they can remove it all without chemo.

For submission guidelines and other relevant info, please contact Annie's Stew, who is managing the prayer list. You can contact her at apaslo at-sign hotmail dot com. If you see a prayer request posted in a thread comment, feel free to copy and paste it and e-mail it to Annie's Stew. She tries to keep up with the requests in the threads, but she's not here all of the time, so she may not see it unless you e-mail it to her. Please note: Prayer requests are generally removed after four weeks or so unless we receive an update.


Romans 8:26-27
26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

One day MisHum called me to his dyin' bed
Put his hands on my shoulders And in tears he said

To pull the weekend through,
My son, it's all left up to you"

33 I saw yesterday that an Anglican bishopress has declared that Holy Scripture teaches us that women have absolute control over their bodies, so killing that baby is perfectly okay.

43 When I was young and the Anglicans hadn't gone completely bonkers, sometimes my maternal grandparents would go Easter Mass at Old Mariner's Church in downtown Detroit and thence to the buffet at the Detroit Athletic Club.

That was an awesome buffet, btw. I still think longing about the prime rib. The service was almost identical to the Catholic one, but the language was less contemporary, which was cool. I wouldn't mind finding one of the Anglican Ordinariate Churches.

My grandfather subsequently gave up is DAC membership as his business declined, so instead we did Mass at Holy Name and then brunch at Orchard Lake CC, which was also outstanding.

53 In my twenties, when I was flat-busted broke, driving a third-hand car and wearing second-hand clothes, I reflected fondly on those experiences.

I tell ya, hard work pays off, I my grandparents taught me a lot about it. I spent one summer re-laying the brick walk at their house. Worked during the morning and when it started getting really hot, my grandmother declared a halt for the day as it was time to go to the club. She'd hang out with her friends at the clubhouse and I'd swim in the pool.

When I was hungry, I could go to the snack shop, order a burger and fries and sign my grandfather's name to pay for it. Those were the days.

59 Carried over from the last thread:

Removing the pancreas is not the treatment for pancreatitis. The pancreas is a gland with dual functions. The exocrine pancreas produces enzymes to help digest food, and these enzymes are excreted, trickling down the pancreatic duct and into the small intestine. The endocrine function produces insulin (via a complex feedback loop based on blood sugar levels) which is excreted into the bloodstream. Removing the entire pancreas would instantly give you diabetes, not to mention preventing you from digesting many foods.

Thus endeth your anatomy and physiology lesson for today.

Yes, I try to sort memories like everything else - get rid of the ugly stuff and hold on to the things that make you happy. By doing that, my brain slowly loses track of the bad things and keeps the good things bright and clear.

It's weird how quickly the "reformers" moved to have ALL sexual morality removed from Christianity.

No scriptural basis, just all about the feelz (and of course enabling perversion).

74 Carried over from the last thread:

Removing the pancreas is not the treatment for pancreatitis. The pancreas is a gland with dual functions. The exocrine pancreas produces enzymes to help digest food, and these enzymes are excreted, trickling down the pancreatic duct and into the small intestine. The endocrine function produces insulin (via a complex feedback loop based on blood sugar levels) which is excreted into the bloodstream. Removing the entire pancreas would instantly give you diabetes, not to mention preventing you from digesting many foods.

Thus endeth your anatomy and physiology lesson for today.

79 I saw yesterday that an Anglican bishopress has declared that Holy Scripture teaches us that women have absolute control over their bodies, so killing that baby is perfectly okay.

She's an idiot and the attitude is vile I do, however, have some sympathy for women who leave the RCC because they cannot be ordained, and yes, I quite understand the theology of ordination as it relates to men and the priesthood. However, I have had about three hours of sleep and am a bit irritable so I'll just say I'd probably feel like knocking someone's block off if I were an Episcopal Bishop and somebody called me "Bishopess" or a priest and someone called me "priestess" .Just deal with the issues if you need to with them. I don't care for it when people here tell me I'm a vile sinner because I am ordained. They're not going to come to my church. Obviously I'm a sinner in need of God's grace. I confess my sins and ask for pardon everyday but if God wants to damn me when I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord an and have been doing so for over 25 years, than I'd rather NOT believe in that God and you will not convince me I am wrong.

God calls all of us to serve him in some way. Those who answer that call, find a way on the path he gives us. Clowns like me try to ignore that call until He finds a way to get your attention.

The church is Jesus Christ, and to serve that "church" we serve him. Period. While doctrines can be different, that doctrine must be rooted in the Word. It's one thing that's if you want to quibble intellectually and textually over formalities and execution of church duties. It's quite another if you want to pretend to preach his Word in apostasy. There is unfortunately a lot of the latter, and leading people astray to suite your personal social predilections by corrupting His Word is a rather egregious action in my estimation. But that's ultimately for God to decide. YMMV

Christianity is so far from traditional Confucian teachings that it's a big problem. When the Jesuits got there, they tried to figure out a way to translate the Bible into Mandarin but there was no easy way to do it because the concepts do not exist in the Chinese characters, which represent concepts rather than specific words.

(This is why China can have so many languages using the same characters - they can read the same things, but can't talk to one another.)

The Jesuits wanted to bend things a bit and use Chinese concepts but everyone else was "oh hell no!" and it was a big dispute until the Jesuits were suppressed (which needs to happen again, btw).

The prevailing view was that it was easier to teach the Chinese Latin, because then they'd learn the new words and concepts at the same time.

184 I was just reading about this ridiculous new IRS army Biden wants to hire. CBO says the agents are primarily going after households making less than $100K per year. The WH says only households making $400K and above.

Future legislation can gut the IRS and even abolish it. This is what this junta, Right Now, wants to do.

I can't even imagine the difficulty they will have in finding people with sufficient qualifications to do the gig. Not all will be auditors, government bureaucracy is what it is with all of the dysfunctions and pathologies that tend to crush the organization under its own weight.

Think of this is a warehouse for putting on the payroll people who are otherwise unemployable. There just aren't enough managers, accountants, lawyers and admin staff out in the wild to hold these positions.

Also, do you really want an IRS as a friend or neighbor? You come home with a new car and your neighbor takes the coveting to the next level and is wondering how to deprive you of that through audits and inquiries. At least that is what is going to be going through a person's mind. Only sociopaths, debt-collection types...

Prayers for all those on the list and not. And for our nation and our world.

MiladyJo's health has improved a bit, but there's still good reason to pray for longstanding problems. She's been doing amazing work walking our new doggie. So good for both of them.

Daughter and her husband are still trying to conceive. Wonderful kids who would make great parents.

SonM in town could use better health (he's been changing for the better). Also just changed jobs. Helps us out now and then on taking care of the place.

SonC, his wife, and their two under-5yo children continue to refuse our calls, texts, emails. Haven't seen or heard from them since Mom's funeral. SonC was drifting away since back in college days, before his first marriage. Pray the Spirit of Truth reach them both. MiladyJo dearly misses her son -- but especially we don't get to see our grandbabies.

We have so much good in our lives, but the bad truly hurts.

Getting a little out of my field, but the short answer is yes. Not sure if there is a certain level or time course of alcohol intake that matters but would guess longer duration and larger amounts are relevant

Docs did a quick hip replacement, and we all expected her to begin recovery, with the help of her long-time hard-driving regular therapist who helped her stay in shape. Instead, I got a call from little sister at the hospital that "Mom has made her end-of-life decisions." In less than a week, Mom was dead. I had no input, control, or say on the situation. I could say more but I won't.

I can't think of elsewhere where the female gender term was sort of abolished. Airlines went from steward/stewardess to attendant.
Italian has it right. No surprise when the nurse tells the lady waiting for the gyno, that the dottore or dottoressa will be right along.
BTW it's professore. The ending 'e' is sometimes dropped when used as a title as in Professor Rossi but not for Professoressa Rossi. Love all those esses.

244 Scott Johnson of Powerline, a pretty solid attorney, this morning, 'Notes on the Trump Warrant':

This is a provision of the Espionage Act that prohibits the appropriation of defense information “with intent or reason to believe that the information is to be used to the injury of the United States, or to the advantage of any foreign nation.” The New York Times has won Pulitzer Prizes that celebrate its violation of this provision of the act. I wrote about it at length in the 2006 Weekly Standard article “Disclosure.” Trump’s alleged violation of this statute is a joke. I believe it discredits the operation — it is a red flag that the purpose is other than as stated. The allegation that Trump violated this provision of the law should not withstand the slightest scrutiny (let alone the requirement that it be supported by probable cause).

Yeah, everyone and every couple's particular problems are different. But if I were to bet on it, saving up a few days for that particularly fertile time is extremely beneficial, based on experience with professionals.

Also, I think reduced anxiety about the conception prospects from the woman's perspectives are a huge part of it. Anecdotally, you always hear about a couple's troubles and then, once they are successful once, babies start popping out all over the place.

Anecdote time. My dearly departed Mother in Law helped us finance IVF (a successful one!) for our first. For those not in the know, when you go in, they harvest ova from the woman, and at the same time, the man makes sweet love to a specimen jar. I got to walk the walk of weird shame/accomplishment back to the waiting room, where my Mother in Law was waiting.

During the homily or at dismissal I don't mind.

But there is this tiny faction at the old student parish (before it was merged with the "townie" one) that clap at the end of each Mass for the musicians. I hate it, and am pleased the people who do it are getting fewer as time goes by.

When we first started going there, it was widespread, so things are getting better. I told one of the priests yesterday that as soon as I see the priest leave the sanctuary, I bug out because I hate it.

That's why I usually go to the main church.

It's a little known fact that there are actually two kinds of earwax – wet and dry. Wet earwax is more common among Caucasian and African people and is typically dark yellow and sticky. For those with East Asian or Native American ancestry, ear wax is typically light in color, dry and flaky.

301 Interesting article by (believe it or not) Rich Lowry this morning in the NY Post. It might be time to consider whether Merrick Garland is simply an idiot and the Mar A Lago raid was a catastrophic blunder. I especially like the line about the congressional interns at the bar down the street from the DOJ.

No thanks. My assumption is many of the nevertrumpers are idiots. Or at least those who still read NR.

No, Garland isn't an idiot. He's corrupted and evil. It would be convenient for people like Lowery to have incompetents on the left, because then they don't have to contemplate that maybe... just maybe, these attacks on Trump represent something more than a personal spat.

302 It was really suspicious. It was delivered to us as returned mail. The return address is ours. The name is not anyone who lives here, and not anyone I know. BUT IT MY LAST NAME. Even weirder, a few months ago, when purchasing a firearm (sadly it sunk to the bottom of the pond) during the background check, they came back and asked me if I knew this name - the return one on the envelope. I answered no. I think someone is using my address for hinky purposes.

The National Archives was there in June and went through the boxes, met briefly with Trump and everyone was satisfied when they left. They recommended via their lawyers that an additional lock be put on the access to the safe which Trumps lawyer has said was done within two days. Trump never heard anything back until the raid.

I like Dave Smith, he's not a genius or anything, but he lays things out clearly... most of the time. His take on this is that it IS personal, because Trump has been so mean to them.

Some of these libertarians and so-called anarchists can't quite wrap their heads around the notion that Trump isn't a complete idiot himself, and that, even though he mostly failed (yes, mostly), he DID go after the Deep State. And will again, if reelected.

Yes, this is an existential crisis for these people. And it is for us too. If they win, we all lose. For the rest of our lives, we'll be hunted down and eliminated. This isn't a game, and these gay fools like Lowery still act like it is.

364 re: Dick Haymes

When I talk about the modern 'voice' being annoying, whiny, pitchy and annoying- this is at the other end of the spectrum. Rich, vibrant and distinctly masculine. I almost think of it as a 'style'. Bing Crosby is probably the apotheosis of this. Sinatra is in there, but he also has a pitchy bit to his voice that does not quite fully 'get there'. Apologies to the 29 year old 'ettes who may be fans.

Probably needless pedantry, but it is something I notice.

I always fry the onions after the potatoes are removed, for the people in the crowd who like them (me), always golden brown. With the potatoes gives the potatoes a better flavor, but what do you do?

But he didn't mostly fail, which is the problem. If he'd have blundered around like Dubya, no one would care.

Their problem with him is that he didn't. He renegotiated NAFTA, solved the Arab-Israeli dispute AND revived American manufacturing while bringing the border under control. And that was just his first term.

He exposed all the lies about how none of this could be fixed, it would always be with us and showed the people that decline was a deliberate choice by the rich. That's why they hate him.

Oh I'm sure a fair bit of personal hatred has built up on both sides but ultimately this is about fear of exposure.

I think sometimes we forget the irrational and over the top response to President Trump. Yes, he wasn't part of the club but it goes deeper. His biggest pledge when he ran was to Drain The Swamp. They are the swamp and they don't want to be drained. No president elected by a healthy percentage of the American public has ever been treated the way Trump was treated.

We don't know everything but what we do know is that they used tools designed to track foreign terrorists and other foreign lowlifes against an opposing presidential candidate and then President of the United States. That is far worse than anything they've ever accused Trump of doing.

Trump wants to expose them. They want to stop him.

400 Remember - revolutions do not happen because things go from bad to worse. Continuous decline leads to despair and lethargy.

You get a revolution when things were bad but get better and then get worse - people realize that they don't have to accept the current situation and that making a radical change could help.

If Hillary had won, we'd have slid into despondency without much trouble. People would have just assumed nothing could be done. Trump showed it was a lie, which is why MAGA keeps growing. It isn't about him any more.

The Dems can't understand that. They think if they kill him MAGA will go away, but instead he will become immortal, and others will take up his banner.

And just think for a moment of how the public will react to Melania and the Trump family draped in mourning. Kill someone, and then you get a funeral. People forget that Tienanmen Square started as a funeral for a reformer.

402 I remember we had a thing at work about 15 years ago. The speaker was talking about the benefits of our health plan (which was pretty good.) He was talking about people getting their cholesterol checked and the wonders of statins. I raised my hand during the Q&A and asked whether there was truth to the idea that statins destroyed your body's ability to regulate cholesterol on it's own- permanently. Creating a permanent dependence.

That one kind of fizzled the Q&A.

406 So heres an article from the New Republic: First Line:
Republicans, and white conservatives, have long been hostile to public schools.
Notice the word schools and not EDUCATION. The left loves schools, they hate education.
A little further down:
Their plan looks like this: Parents are given a voucher for several thousand dollars that comes out of the state education budget. In reality, it reduces money going to public schools to a point where the schools will be dramatically underfunded.
Again in underfunds schools, not EDUCATION.
Finally:
All the GOP has to do is either let the value of vouchers and ESAs stagnate, or reduce them over time, to create the educational system they always wanted: one in which poor non-whites and LGBT people are unable to get a decent education, and conservative white Christians are heavily favored.
Wait what? I have been told for years that rich people that use their own money to pay for private schools should still have to pay public school taxes. So now it is bad that everyone has a check in hand and can walk to any place they wish asking for an education.
Very poor logic and writing D-.
