Is simulation theory compatible with enclosed cosmology? Does it help explain many of the still unresolved questions of our reality? Or is it just another layer of deception…?

A Proclamation from George Washington in 1789 and Thanksgiving Words to Proclaim 2016


ThanksgivingPrayer
This is a wonderous holiday.  It lacks the commercial spin of some of the other holidays.  It is a time for getting together with family and friends and remembering the One who made us; the One we are here to serve with thanksgiving in our hearts.  May we bless Him and be blessed in the process.
Here is how one of our founding fathers set apart the day in 1789:

THANKSGIVING DAY 1789
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
– A PROCLAMATION

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor – and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

.
Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be – That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation – for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war –for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed – for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.
.
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions – to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually – to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed – to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord – To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and Us – and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
.
Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
.
(signed) G. WASHINGTON.

Some interesting history concerning Thanksgiving.

PROCLAMATION
thanksgiving-proclamationThis year a general theme for me has been proclamation.  It is important what we think.  It is important what we say outloud.  It is important how we say it and when we say it and how often we say it.  If we are really serious about a matter, we repeat it.  If we are asking our children to do something, we repeat it until it happens.  If we want something from the king (or Congress), we keep bringing up the matter until it occurs.  Please consider reading some of these verses around your dinner table and proclaim His word to your family and friends!
Some scriptures about Thanksgiving for you to proclaim:

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.

—Psalm 9:1

The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me;
to one who orders his way rightly
I will show the salvation of God!”

—Psalm 50:23

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praises to your name, O Most High;

—Psalm 92:1

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name!

—Psalm 97:12

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!

—Psalm 100:4

Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;
make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!

—Psalm 105:1-2

do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

—Philippians 4:6

Finding Gems & Sharing Them – OK Heritage Farm – Fall Festival Brings A-Mazing Fun for Entire Family to Ramona (Bartlesville Area)

Oklahoma Heritage Farm Prepares for Fall Festival — The Maze is Ready!

Oklahoma Heritage Farm is located near Vera between Bartlesville and Tulsa on Highway 75.  It is the homeplace, family farm, store and project of Mike and Margaret Snow.  Recently an article was written about them by Susan Albert in Bartlesville Examiner Enterprise.

Mike and Margaret Snow are carrying on the lifestyle of their five-generation family. Like their parents and grandparents before them, they work the soil, grow the crops, raise the farm animals and provide for themselves.

We were “self-sustaining” before the term became popular, Margaret Snow said.

With the Oklahoma Heritage Farm Store, situated on acreage south of Ramona off U.S. Highway 75, the Snows have opened up their home and farm as a way to share the wealth of homegrown heirloom produce, homemade goodies and gifts and decor that depict the diverse heritage of Oklahoma.

“We feel like we live the good life and want to share that with people,” said Snow, who acknowledged they work long hours in the garden, she cooks every day, and they don’t have a computer in their home.

“We love to work,” she said. “We’re not non-progressive; we like it that way.”

They grow heirloom varieties — the same seed they sell in the store, and they grow it as organically as possible. They sell what is in season from their own backyard and don’t bring in any produce from other vendors. Right now it’s the early vegetables and greens, she said. Later, they will have summer vegetables plus fruit.

What they don’t sell from the garden they preserve — in a jar, in the freezer or in a dehydrator. The Snows also give away a lot of produce to the church, neighbors or elderly who may need fresh produce.

What Do you See? What is on Your Mind?

Do you see good or evil

When you encounter a situation, what do you see? Do you see the glass half empty or the glass half full? How you perceive a matter may effect the way you respond to it. What is the proper response? I am not going to tell you the answer, because I do not know for you. I only know what I am learning — albeit very slowly.

What we see is not the entirety of a matter. We can only see from our limited perspective. We cannot know another’s heart in the matter; we don’t even know our own most of the time.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Jeremiah 17:9

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Psalm 51:10

We need to seek Him in all matters that confront us, moment by moment asking Him to see things the way He sees and respond in the way He would have us to respond.  His ways are above our ways; and, they are way better!
Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
Isaiah 55:6
There is a lot of division and unrest in our society.  There are lots of ways to divide people.  I have friends who are pessimists and see calamity at every turn and others who see great opportunity in every tragedy.  Which is right?  You might say that both are because a watchman is called to warn people so that they might see in time to change direction; while we are all called to encourage one another even in the midst of the calamity.  We certainly live in a time where we need to both warn and encourage one another.  It works best when we have a word in season for one another – certainly His ways are above ours and if we are seeking Him and following His word – we may yet live to see His resolution to the matter.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
II Timothy 2:15
It is, of course, very important what we dwell on.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Philippians 4:8
Here is a powerful message on the importance of our thoughts.  We are challenged to think on good things for a reason!  Don’t miss this most excellent video on the amazing power of your mind (about 10 mins in length) with over 3 million views at time of posting.
