      “In everything give thanks.” Why does being thankful matter? Because even though a person can endure great hardship, a tragedy or a setback in health, looking for things about which “thanks” to God can be made brings a psychological healing. God doesn’t just command us to be thankful with a “because I say so” attitude, but because He knows that it will be beneficial to us. Gratitude is powerful.

      “…and to give thanks to God the Father every day through the name of our Lord Jesus the Anointed for all He has done.” – Ephesians 5:20

      “Finally, brothers and sisters, fill your minds with beauty and truth. Meditate on whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is good, whatever is virtuous and praiseworthy.” – Philippians 4:8

      Beautiful photos, Lucille. The first reminded me that yesterday while stroking one of our dogs, we encountered a porcupine quill – followed by several others – embedded in her scruff. Heaven only knows! Probably rolled in something that smelled wonderful…to her!

    Morning everybody! Speaking of weather, it was 96 degrees here yesterday, and then the rain moved in last evening. Temps plummeted into the low 70’s and we got a nice shower. More rain today, I hear.

      Good day to you, Stella! We’ll hit 80 degrees today. Presently the sun is trying to peek through the overcast skies.

    More GOOD news about ‘climate change’:

    Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Defies Climate Doomsayers with Record Coral Comeback

    Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is doing just fine with vast sections defying every forecast of impending doom made by climate catastrophists over the past 30 years, a report Thursday outlines.

    Coral cover on two-thirds of the iconic reef, which is seen as a bellwether of ocean health, has reached its highest level since records began 36 years ago, according to marine scientists monitoring the ecosystem.

    The Australian Institute of Marine Sciences (AIMS) said in its annual report the reef is vibrant and flourishing although challenges do remain for such a “resilient system” that “still maintains that ability to recover from disturbances,” AIMS monitoring programme leader Mike Emslie confirmed.

    So much good stuff in the news today. From American Thinker:

    The alleged wannabe Kavanaugh assassin wasn’t just an ordinary guy

    When Nicholas Roske learned that Roe v. Wade might be overturned, he grabbed a kidnapping and murder kit and headed over to Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house, hoping to make Kavanaugh the first in a trio of Supreme Court justice killings. Thankfully, even though federal and state law enforcement did almost nothing (despite laws on the books) to protect justices from protests at their house (a perfect cover for Roske), Roske was caught in time. Now we’re learning that Roske isn’t just another crazy leftist: He’s a crazy leftist who also thinks he’s a woman.

    Andy Ngo got hold of the Court documents in which Roske identifies as a woman named “Sophie”:

    In the above documents, Roske identifies himself as an “MtF” named Sophie—that is, a Male to Female transgender. Pathetically, he seeks a female “cuddle” friend because, despite being a “female,” he’s unable to create sexual friendships with men. Also, quite unsurprisingly, he says he’s “420 friendly,” which means he’s a pot user. Pot, of course, is increasingly associated with psychotic criminality of the type you’d see in a man who thinks he’s a woman and who announces that “I am shooting for 3” Supreme Court justices to “remove” from the Supreme Court.
