“These are the times in which a genius would wish to live. It is not in the still calm of life, or the repose of a pacific station, that great characters are formed. The habits of a vigorous mind are formed in contending with difficulties. Great necessities call out great virtues. When a mind is raised, and animated by scenes that engage the heart, then those qualities which would otherwise lay dormant, wake into life and form the character of the hero and the statesman.”
Abigail Adams

“Let there be light! Abba! Father, let there be light!
In our dark moments we cry; let there be light!
Light to show us the way; light to shine before all others!
Light to see through darkness; light to change all staleness!
Let there be light! Abba! Father, we cry, let there be light!

Let there be light! Abba! Father, let there be light!
The future is always truly uncertain; let there be light!
Light to shine on the snares of darkness; light to take steps with calmness!
Light for us to see our paths well; light for us to understand your ways well!
Let there be light! Abba! Father, we cry, let there be light!

Let there be light! Abba! Father, let there be light!
We do not know who is coming in the darkness; let there be light!
Light to blindfold the attacker; light to change the sinner!
Light to give us power; light to make all things better!
Let there be light! Abba! Father, we cry, let there be light!

Let there be light! Abba! Father, let there be light!
We need freedom to do your work; let there be light!
Light to free us from bondage; light to escape attackers’ carnage!
Light to lead us into your sonship; Light to empower our sonship!
Let there be light! Abba! Father, we cry, let there be light!


Let there be light! Abba Father, let there be light!
We need your light to know the truth; let there be light!
Light to enlighten our understanding; light to overcome misunderstanding!
Light to withstand strongholds; light to empower our goals!
Let there be light! Abba! Father, we cry, let there be light!”

“In reality, the toxic of examinations don’t really matter! It is, however, the lens with which we look at examinations that determines how the examinations of life rule us or how we are able overcome the hardships of life examinations with a good understanding.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah, Toxic In The Mind: daily use of the mind that kills you slowly

Liz Jensen
“The shimmering tarmac of the deserted basketball court, a line of industrial-sized garbage cans, and beyond the electrified perimeter fence a vista that twangs a country and western chord of self-pity in me. For a brief moment, when I first arrived, I thought of putting a photo of Alex - Laughing Alpha Male at Roulette Wheel - next to my computer, alongside my family collection: Late Mother Squinting Into Sun on Pebbled Beach, Brother Pierre with Postpartum Wife and Male Twins, and Compos Mentis Father Fighting Daily Telegraph Crossword. But I stopped myself. Why give myself a daily reminder of what I have in every other way laid to rest? Besides, there would be curiosity from colleagues, and my responses to their questions would seem either morbid or tasteless or brutal depending on the pitch and role of my mood. Memories of my past existence, and the future that came with it, can start as benign, Vaselined nostalgia vignettes. But they’ll quickly ghost train into Malevolent noir shorts backlit by that great worst enemy of all victims of circumstance, hindsight. So for the sake of my own sanity, I apologize silently to Alex before burying him in the desk alongside my emergency bottle of Lauphroaig and a little homemade flower press given to me by a former patient who hanged himself with a clothesline.
The happy drawer.”
Liz Jensen, The Rapture
