The Sacrifice of Thanks giving

"Let them sacrifice the sacrifice of Thanks giving, and declare HIS works with rejoicing." Psalm 102:22

There was a time in my life when i did not understand what that verse meant, "the sacrifice of thanks giving" but now I do. When times for a family are tough and times for the nation are worst, and times for the world at large is even worst, then giving thanks takes an attitude of sacrifice. An "I don't feel much like praising you GOD but I am going to obey Your word and do it anyway" determination. Lifting up the Holy and Sacred Name of God the Father when one is far from home, and one's family is distraught, and one's children are "growing emotionally, spiritually, psychologically with angst" [my description,not theirs], and one's tiny grandchildren are lonely and miss their "nanny" and one's husband has turmoil, then for me, it takes a "bulldawg*" perseverance to forget all those problems for a while,and praise the Name of God, and remember all of His excellent interventions on my behalf and on behalf of my children and grandchildren. So here is my list of Thanks giving today, the official thanksgiving day but I am thankful every day for:
A merciful and loving God who has so much compassion and pity for me and my children and grandchildren; who loves me; and HIS written word, the Bible;
A husband who loves me; and whom I love;
Children who are healthy, intelligent, in good health, with inquistive minds and the knowledge of The HOLY God; and are precious to me;
Grandchildren who are sweet, adorable, unselfish, kind and all together wonderful and who are precious to me;
A mother living, and brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews by the almost dozen, and cousins in the dozens too;
having grown up on a farm that taught me to love the land, and to work hard, and to witness the way the physical earth
produces food for humans and animals, and have a sense of being a part of that;
a legacy of having continuity in my family and in my life by being involved in something bigger than me, the Poole family that
spans centuries, and included in the mighty Murray family that originated in Scotland and now spans the globe, and the Bliss family that has accomplished so much for the world;
a warm, safe environment;
enough food and clean water daily, in fact usually more than enough;
talent that is a gift from God that enables me to write poetry, prose, essays, and paint beautiful paintings with oils and acrylics, and draw with pen and ink, and pencil, and create jewelry and websites, blogs, decorate cakes, and make dolls and costumes, and sing praises to God and just sing! How I love to sing!
a good University of Georgia education in business management,, and Georgia Baptist in nursing;
the Georgia Baptists for their upbringing of me that taught me the pure love of God and the Scriptures, and who as a group in convention commit to stay true to the Bible, and the words of God;
my father's discipline and faith in me that allowed me to have confidence in myself and have a get it done attitude;
my father's love and living a lifestyle nearly puritan in some ways, with no turning to the right or to the left on some issues who set the standard of absolute fidelity to one's spouse, and truth, and decency, and community service; whose "no" meant "no" and there was no doubt about his views or his beliefs; a man who was like the rock of Gibraltar in many, many ways;
the equipment I need to write and publish scriptures and the prolife message of the right to life for all;
a comfortable Executive chair that replaced the uncomfortable one this year;
beautiful weather and sunshine;
roses! Oh I love roses and some of that love came through the generations because both my grandfather and father had rose gardens;
Sunflowers, and lilies, irises, and camellias, and azaleas in bloom, orchids especially purple, dogwood blooms and Magnolia trees in full bloom with their lovely scent;
swimming anywhere; oceans, lakes, heated pools, unheated pools, cold water streams, anywhere;
boating, and bicycling, and water skiing;
good health, good mind;
the places I traveled too, especially Scotland, I loved Scotland --it felt like home to me;
my extended trip to London,and every place I have traveled too in Europe, Florence, Edinburgh,Inverness,Belgium,Germany;
CHILDREn, I love all children;
goodness in people.

More reasons Alito should NOT be on US Sup Ct

I am a Registered Nurse of many decades and have a "paper trail" of that going back decades .That work has confirmed in me some principles that I first learned from the words of God in the Holy Bible and it has made me even more determined to do what I can, all that I can, as completely as I can, as faithfully as I can, as often as I can, and with absolute conviction that right is defined by God Himself. The reason I write that is because there seems to be a wicked undercurrent in the US that is a shifting sand of "men's doctrines instead of the Commandments of God". The most important debate in the US at this time is who will be the next "Justice" on the US Supreme Court. I am an educated woman, taught to use reason and logical thinking, to order my thoughts and my writings and words to persuade whether teaching health care or teaching the Commandments of God. I humble myself by reminding myself constantly that the words of God, the Commandments of God, are truth, and they are life. When God wrote in stone TWICE the words, "thou shalt not kill" HE did not qualify that statement. There is a period after it, "thou shalt not kill" period.
You may ask how this debate concerns Alito. Alito is a demoncrat in the same wicked mindset of Ted Kennedy, and John Kerry and Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein. Those four mentioned are politicians, not statesmen or stateswomen. Statesmen or stateswomen do what is best for the nation and what is best for the nation is the upcoming generations via live births of humans. This nation's First Amendment allows citizens to question, or criticize the goverrnment and to demand "redress of grievances". Much of what I write is about demanding redress of grievances on behalf of innocent humans in the wombs of their mothers, and other innocents who need protectors and protection from corrupt politicians or wicked people. Alito has proved by his words and his deeds by overwhelming evidence that he is NOT in favor of women having living babies. Furthermore, he has aligned himself politically and spiritually with the wicked undercurrent. The following quote from an article today in the USAToday, entitled "Supreme Court Justices Have Already Acted on Some Alito Decisions" : [quote] In at least three cases, the Supreme Court justices mentioned Alito by name and his writings in their citations, including the 1992 abortion case of Casey v. Planned Parenthood and a 2000 case involving Webster Hubbell, a former associate attorney general and friend of President Clinton.[end quote]
Anyone who does not know that the Clintons as a pair are two of the most wicked people on this earth, are not in touch with reality. Clinton when he was President had the opportunity to save human lives but instead he wrote an Executive Order lifting the ban on fetal research that guaranteed that more human babies would be reduced to shreds for "raw material" for research. He and Hillary have the blood of MILLIONS of human babies on their hands and they both should be tried for crimes against humanity by the Nuremberg Code of International Laws, and so should Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, John Kerry, who have voted AGAINST human life more than 72 times in their careers! Alito is NOT prolife and he is not a person who can be trusted. He should not be a "Justice" on the "highest" court in the land. Remember that God's Court on HIS judgment day is the HIGHEST Court, and HE judges the Judges according to Scripture. Justice by definition means the principles of right and wrong are applied to each case separately and without prejudice, and the person in the "right" as defined by God's laws, is exonerated or indemnified, and the one in the wrong is punished. Those who kill should be punished and those who are complicent or accomplices must also be punished. Having another proabort on the Court will not help the US and if fact, will bring the demise of civilization in the US, because human life is sacred, made in the image of God and it is the duty, and maybe the only duty of righteous government to protect innocent human lives. Urge your politicians to reject Alito as a "justice" for these reasons given but also because he hails from Philadelphia, a city that last year arrested men for preaching the gospel by reading it from the Holy Bible in protest of homosexuality.

Alito is NOT prolife, not right for US Sup Ct

The Yahoo News reports including video footage show Samuel Alito holding conferences with two of the nations leading prodeathers-- namely Diane Feinstein and Ted Kennedy. The prodeathers believe that the US Constitution is not relevant and can be pulled and twisted to mean whatever they want it too. The prodeathers do not adhere to the written words of the US Constitution including Article I Section I that gives only Congress the power to legislate, though another clause does allow the people themselves to sponsor a Constitutional Amendment via the referendum process of 2/3 of the States. Samuel Alito by aligning himself with the prodeathers is making it known that he is not a FOR LIFE person and that is very significant. Alito has also "distanced himself" from comments attributed to him in 1985 in which supposedly he said that the right to abortion is not in the Constitution. Well, the "right" to kill one's offspring when they are the most vulnerable that is in the womb, is certainly NOT written anywhere in true law of either The US Constitution, the Amendments to the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence and God willing,it never will be . Abortion is a heinous crime against the baby in the womb, the mother and father of the baby, the grandparents, the nation and humanity. However the fact that Alito is now saying that he made those remarks [about abortion not being in the Constitution] merely parroting what he thought his potential boss wanted to hear, and did not mean them [the distancing himself part of the event now in the news] shows that he lacks integrity and honesty. So a person who had no integrity and no honesty should not be a JUDGE on any bench in any Court in any nation! Justice to be just must be decided by a person who knows the difference between right and wrong. It ic clear that Alito does not know that difference since he ruled unethically on a case that he was financially invested in knowing his decision would directly affect his shares. And now he has "distanced himself' from the statement that abortion is not a right in the Constitution. Abortion is a sin against God and as such it should be a crime, and punishable as a crime. The US cannot continue to have separate standards of punishing those who kill the innocents who are grown in other nations while not only allowing the killing of innocents in the womb where they cannot fight back but also encouraging it, promoting it with their dog and pony theatrical performances in the US Senate that are nothing but posturing for position and influence. The US would be better off entirely without the US Senate and it seems also without the US Supreme Court also.

Believers in the ONE True God, who is Spirit, Unite for peace

I read many of the Reuters,BBC, AP and Yahoo news reports about the bombings in Amman Jordan. One article from Sydney Australia is about Amman "paying the price of friendship" with the US, but I want to publicly denounce such foolishness. The Amman bombings did not happen because their King is an ally of the US. They happened because the enemies of God are evil, and do not want peace on earth. The Bible makes it plain that there is an "antichrist" [ the word for the enemy of God who fell from heaven] , on the earth today, that seeks to devour those who believe in God and take them to hell with him. Evil is not defined by a region or group or ethnicity but by those who reject God and HIS commandments according to Scripture. Those who acknowledge the Sovereignty and Authority of THE ONE GOD do not kill other humans. The age, location, religious beliefs, economic status,education status or any other characteristics of the world does not define humanity. God alone has the power to create humans and HE made us "in the image of God" according to Genesis 1:27-28, and HE knew us when we were in the womb according to Jeremiah 1:5..God wrote in stone, "thou shalt not kill' in Exodus 20:13, and Deuteronomy 5:17 and Matthew 18:14. The passage from Matthew is written, "even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these litle ones should perish."

I urge you to go to the website link and read the Ammon Message of King Abdullah II of Jordan for a very clear explanation using the words of the Qu'ran to explain what Islam believes. I am Chrisitian, always was, always will be and I know why. However having said that, after I read the words that the King selected for his speech on that link, I realize that the prophet they acknowledge did have knowledge of the Old Testament as do the Christians and the Jews. We, the religions defined by faith in the ONE God must unite and stop fighting each other. The words of their book are very similar in some passages to the words of The Book of the Christians, that is the Holy Bible. We must all learn to live in peace and we must create public policies that allow people to worship God whereever they live. In the opening paragraph of the King's speech he acknowledges "all apostles and prophets" and he concludes with "thanking God, Lord of the worlds.".. For all of you who have no understanding of what Islam is supposed to be about, i.e. the worship of the ONE God, you may find some peace in reading his speech of Nov 2004 on that website listed here as a link. gloria poole pappas

Vote YES on Prop 73 today

Parents, grandparents., citizens, you have the opportunity today in Calif to vote to return the parental authority to the parents to make health care decisions for minor girls. The Prop 73 requires that an abortionist attempting to abort a minor girl notify the parents in advance and only the parents may authorize so that the bypass of parental authority loophole is closed. This is a good stop-gap measure as it will allow those who love a girl the most, the ones who gave her life, to decide whether to risk her life in an abortion. An abortion is a life taking of the baby and it jeopardizes the life of the one aborting. There is abundant evidence of that in medical schools and abortion clinics but it has been disguised through sleight of hand tricks by the CDC, the "not for honest profits",ngos that profit from the blood and tissues of human babies, in other words,the wicked. There have been more deaths from "legal " abortion than there was from illegal abortions because the numbers increased exponentially and so did the risks. Ask Holly Patterson's daddy if he thinks parents should be notified before surgery or medicines that risk their child's life. Ask the Gov of California. Ask any mother who is a good mother what her opinion of this subject it and she will tell you that she is not willling to risk her child's life for ANYTHING OR ANYBODY!

Intervene on behalf of life, give parents authority over their children, do away with the "nanny state" of government control of birth and life, and get life affirming decsion making authority in Calif and every State and every country. "Therefore choose life..." it is written.

Prolifers are Winning!

Hey, there is much evidence that the prolifers are winning and they are doing it peacefully but with determination, conviction of the rightness of the cause, perseverance and committment. The State of Mississippi has passed many strong prolife bills to protect the innocent. Harriet Miers withdrew and that was good since her role models in life were radical proaborts such as Ginsburg on the US Supreme Court. So Pres Bush has nominated a man who is regarded by many prolife organizations as prolife to the US Supreme Court. The prolifers know we are winning but the wicked are acknowledging that also. YEA, the prolifers are winning! I have always said that God wins HIS battles and the cause of life is HIS battle. Get on God's side in this debate because God said and wrote in stone, 'thou shalt not kill" as recorded in several places in the Bible in the Commandments but also in different words when it says "therefore choose life". The flip side of the thou shalt not kill, words. Thou shalt not kill/Choose LIFE.

Also there is a new website encouraging all prolife groups to come together and you can find it at I did visit the site but do not know who is sponsoring it but it has a call to action plan.
