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

Just Shut Up and Vote: The Futility of Representative Government in an Age of Robber Barons

Battlefield America by JWWhitehead

John W. Whitehead’s latest book available to buy with click on pic ( + other books)

“That’s the way the ruling class operates in any society. They keep the lower and the middle classes fighting with each other… Anything different—that’s what they’re gonna talk about—race, religion, ethnic and national background, jobs, income, education, social status, sexuality, anything they can do to keep us fighting with each other, so that they can keep going to the bank!”—Comedian George Carlin

“We the people” have been utterly and completely betrayed.

The politicians “we the people” most trusted to look out for our best interests, protect our rights, and ensure that the nation does not slip into tyranny have cheated on us, lied to us, swindled us, deceived us, double-crossed us, and sold us to the highest bidder.

Time and again, they have shown in word and deed that their priorities lay elsewhere, that they care nothing about our plight, that they owe us no allegiance, that they are motivated by power and money rather than principle, that they are deaf to our entreaties, that they are part of an elite ruling class that views us as mere cattle, that their partisan bickering is part of an elaborate ruse to keep us divided and distracted, and that their oaths of office to uphold the Constitution mean nothing.

Primary Elections Tweet

 

a recent tweet from a post on facebook below:

Primary Elections are about electing the best person for the office. In the general you can pick the lesser of two bad choices if you don’t get someone who walks the talk through the primary options… Happy campaigning out there! Don’t forget to have fun and make friends while you are on the campaign trail. ‪#‎R3s‬ ‪#‎4life‬ ‪#‎4liberty‬

So everyone is a conservative now.  And oddly enough everyone is for liberty now.  Hmmmm.  Who are the real champions?  They are the ones who were there before it was cool.  Leading the way.  Standing on principle.

Humor: The Magic Green Hat

Since moving to Florida, I needed to go to the emergency room.

Not wanting to sit there for 4 hours, I put on my MAGIC GREEN HAT.

When I went into the E.R., I noticed that 3/4 of the people got up and left.

I guess they decided that they weren’t that sick after all.

Cut at least 3 hours off my waiting time.

 

                                            Here’s the hat:
Thte Magic Green Ha

 

 

 

It also works at Dept. of Motor Vehicles.
It saved me 5 hours.

At the Laundromat, three minutes after
entering, I had my choice of any machine,
most still running.

If you live in Texas, it might cut your wait
time at the grocery store.

But… don’t try it at McDonald’s.
The whole crew ran out the back door
and I never did get my order!

Local Voter Guides 101 — Video Instructions via Brian Crumby and CCMC

Brian Crumby Videos

Brian Crumby with Conservative Coalition of Montgomery County in Texas

These videos will tell you how to put together a voter guide for your county and give you some thoughts on ways to make the process simple and effective.  Of course the voting window from filing deadline to election is fixed and the work must be accomplished inside that window to be most effective.  More people are early voting these days so the guide should be timed to be out ahead of early voting.  Special thanks to my good friend in Texas, Brian Crumby for this video series and a special thanks for all his hard work over many years standing for life and for liberty and for a lot less government too! (Note: CCMC = Conservative Coalition Montgomery County)
