WATCH LIVE: Former President George H.W. Bush Dies at Age 94



HOUSTON (AP) — George H.W. Bush, a patrician New Englander whose presidency soared with the coalition victory over Iraq in Kuwait, but then plummeted in the throes of a weak economy that led voters to turn him out of office after a single term, has died. He was 94.

The World War II hero, who also presided during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the final months of the Cold War, died late Friday night at his Houston home, said family spokesman Jim McGrath. His wife of more than 70 years, Barbara Bush, died in April 2018.

The son of a senator and father of a president, Bush was the man with the golden resume who rose through the political ranks: from congressman to U.N. ambassador, Republican Party chairman to envoy to China, CIA director to two-term vice president under the hugely popular Ronald Reagan. The 1991 Gulf War…

Throwback Thursday: Five Favorite Posts from 2018


If I’m looking for inspiration, I need look no further than my WordPress.com Reader for incisive reads, beautiful poetry, and hand-made art to spark my curiosity and fuel my creativity. As 2018 closes, I’m highlighting five favorite posts and I invite you to share the pieces that spoke to you this year.

“Wind” by Robert Okaji

Robert Okaji is a prolific poet who publishes his work at O at the Edges. In “Wind,” I read not only about air moving at speed and irrevocably changing everything it touches; I also sense the deep feeling and transformation of a passionate encounter. It’s a lovely poem made of many layers.


That it shudders through
and presages an untimely end,

that it transforms the night’s
body and leaves us

breathless and wanting,
petals strewn about,

messenger and message in one,
corporeal hosts entwined,

that it moves, that it blends,

A writer's touch

Often times we think about what the world and people will think about us and as a result we make all efforts to please them. We try to live up to their standard of life so we can get many friends. My friends, if you are in such situation it’s high time you break out from that shell of limitation. You have multiple potentials in you waiting to be exploited, don’t be discouraged. We are afraid to be ourselves because we are afraid we will become alone. We follow the crowd, so we don’t feel alone. But crowd doesn’t care one bit about you. Follow your heart. There’s no success in conformity.

Be yourself, break out from the shell of pleasing people. Good morning friends.

From The Darkness Into The Light

“Joshua Study – Five Qualities of Strong Leadership “

As Joshua prepared to lead more than two million Israelites into the Promised Land, he commanded everyone to pause in the midst of the excitement so that he could deliver this very important exhortation: “Purify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do great wonders among you.” The next morning, Joshua approached the priests and said, “Lift up the Ark of Covenant and lead the people across the river.” 

These two statements reveal that, in order to successfully execute God’s plan, Joshua knew that he and his entire team had to embrace two key concepts. First, they needed to purify themselves before the Almighty. Joshua had learned the wisdom of depending on God for success. Because sin can prevent us from hearing God’s voice, Joshua made an ongoing choice to repent of sin and admonished his team to do the same.

The Godly Chic Diaries

“Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.” (Psalm 103:2)

Anddd just like that, another exam is now behind me. Thank you Lord. The feeling of finishing a difficult exam and passing is incredibly gratifying especially when you’re running on very little sleep. These are moments of rewards that make the long days ahead worth it….

I have learned in every circumstance that comes my way, to give thanks. In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give.We also need to remember from where God has brought us. When times get tough and you think you have nothing left to give, think about the goodness of God and all that He has done for you. Sometimes we need to rehearse our faith to get through times of doubt. We all doubt ourselves…

Consequences of Not Having Your Shit Together


The three and a half hours before my flight back from studying abroad in Korea found me scrambling around my emptied dorm with the aplomb of a newly headless chicken. Mom’s incredulous voice, on speaker, ascended from waves of blankets.

Mom: You’re still packing?

Me: No, I already have all the stuff in the big suitcase and just need to transfer some of it to the smaller one.

So, sans editorialization, I was still packing. I’d bought a small suitcase for my second carry-on the night before, having realized there is, in fact, a limit to how many snacks you can fit in your luggage—for some reason I was under the impression that gifts for other people don’t count toward your packing total on a sort of karmic basis—and justified spending $80 on extra space for honey butter almonds I could probably just Amazon to the States.
