“It will not surprise those who know her that Barbara Bush has been a rock in the face of her failing health, worrying not for herself–thanks to her abiding faith–but for others. She is surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving.”
With these words, a family spokesman announced yesterday that Mrs. Bush has decided to end medical treatment and will focus on comfort care.
Tributes to the former first lady have already begun.
UN Ambassador Nikki Haley called her “a woman of great faith, great strength, and an unwavering love of country.” On the other side of the political spectrum, Chelsea Clinton tweeted, “I will never forget how kind she was to me on every occasion we met, and how fondly the White House staff always spoke of her.”
I know of no more universally admired person in American politics than Barbara Bush. Conversely, I know of no more polarizing person than the other political figure making headlines today.
James Comey was interviewed last night by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. The former FBI director is promoting his new book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership. I watched the interview and am not surprised that reaction fell on partisan lines.
Whatever your thoughts on Mr. Comey, it’s clear that our nation’s politics are deeply divisive. In the decades after George H. W. Bush served as president, political animosity in America has increased exponentially.
In times like these, we need the example of Barbara Bush.
A tragedy that changed her life
Janet and I were deeply honored to meet Mrs. Bush when she spoke at Dallas Baptist University’s Russell Perry Award dinner in 2001. She was as gracious in private as she was in public. As the wife of one president and mother of another, she is famous the world over for her courage, compassion, and humor.
The Washington Post has an insightful story about Barbara Bush and her family that helps…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
