Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving. Posting will be light to non-existent this weekend. I thought I'd give all of you a chance to catch up.


Psalm 86
Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Preserve my life, for I am devoted to you; save your servant who trusts in you. You are my God; be gracious to me, O Lord, for to you do I cry all day long. Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call on you. Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my cry of supplication. In the day of my trouble I call on you, for you will answer me.

There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours. All the nations you have made shall come and bow down before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God. Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name. I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever. For great is your steadfast love toward me; you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol. O God, the insolent rise up against me; a band of ruffians seeks my life, and they do not set you before them. But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. Turn to me and be gracious to me; give your strength to your servant; save the child of your serving girl. Show me a sign of your favor, so that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame, because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Scott!

    There are many days when I wish I had a cogent thought to add to your blog. And yes, I am often in a state of "catching up"...You give me alot to think about. I'm grateful for that.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    God Bless You,

  2. Thank you, Tami. There are days I wish I had something cogent to post, but, true to form, I don't let that deter me, which means that you are more prudent I am. Since prudence is the virtue that guides all the other natural virtues, that is a good thing!

    God bless you and yours.

  3. Dear Scott,

    Prudence Schmudence.

    I hope you never stop posting. I'm touched by what you write, even when things are difficult to talk about - much less truly understand. You have a huge heart. And hey... I would never have known about "Homer's Catholic Heaven" if it weren't for your blog! I'm SO not scared of dying now! :)

    Blessings to you,
    Tami
