• Barbara Bush died yesterday.  The former first lady of the United States was a lady of dignity and strength and was quite endearing. The first time Colin Powell met Barbara Bush, they were seated next to each other at a French Embassy luncheon. General Powell was an Army corps commander at the time – not yet a top Washington insider – and he was intimidated, a bit, by the formality of the situation. So he turned and said, “How do you do, Mrs. Bush? I’m very pleased to be with you.”


  • I’m not a wrestler, but I should be. I’m not known for agonizing very often, but I should be. I’m not a fighter, but I should be. 


  • Spring is all about new life. Flowers bloom, dogwood trees begin to color the woods, and the grass begins to turn green. And the great news for the Christian is that new hope blooms for us every day because of Christ's resurrection!
