Saturate Us sung by Bishop Andrew Merriitt and The Straight Gate Mass Choir (2015) is a beautiful song of praise to God. It’s a song of plea, asking God to shower the world with his love, mercy, and power. In these days and times we need God to replenish his people with strength and faith to get through these troublesome times. So much is going on and it’s important for everyone to remember to give Jesus all of our praise and thanks.

Language Cannot be Limited: Responding to Ludwig Wittgenstein
Published on: October 20, 2016 | Written by LeQuita C. Harrison
“The limits of my language are the limits of my world.” Ludwig Wittgenstein
Ludwig Wittgenstein, an Austrian-British philosopher, said “The limits of my language are the limits of my world,” which identifies how language contributes to human’s abilities to socialize. Without language or limiting language can be crucial to a human’s will to imagine, to learn, and to comprehend. In my Archaeology of Language Course, we discussed how babies and toddlers form and adapt to a spoken language by ways of listening and repeating sounds. If a mom repeats the word “ma-ma” to her toddler, she would eventually repeat the sound and interpret it to be a good thing. This awakening of sounds with words, which has its own study called Phonology, gives wake to imagination.

OMG! Tom Hiddleston’s butt!… Okay I apologize. I must keep this very professional. This is my first review- all thanks to this movie not because of TH’s behind, but because this was a very good movie.
Name of the Movie: Crimson Peak
It’s a catchy name. The word Crimson makes me think of blood red and very edgy dark depths. 0_o. This adjective placed before peak instantly makes me wonder why the peak is red (You’ll find out once you see movie). This title really creates questions about what to expect in this movie. Plus I love the color red. RATE: 10
There’s this pressure that weighs on my shoulders every time a family event comes up. It’s hard to read how I feel; excited, anxious, or nervous… annoyed maybe. Don’t get me wrong, I am proud of being the first young person in my generation in the family to attend college. Let’s just say, I was completely shocked when once told everyone gasped and grew extremely excited. It was as if I’d been nominated on the Oscars or something. The spotlight made me smile so hard my cheeks began to burn and my thoughts began to jumble all over the place. Eventually, I’d overcome the wave of emotions and find myself explaining the college life, my specific goals in the major I’ve chosen, as well as my future plans. When I’m alone away from the flood of questions and the reminder of how I need to stay focused and make the family proud, something scary happens. Doubt crawls into my veins to plague my entire body until my soul is consumed and I’m left in the dark wondering how I failed. But I’m young, still full of life and mystery, still holding a basket full of blessings that I cannot see right now. Though my family’s encouragements and reminders are good natured, it worries me at times making me think I will not succeed. As long as I have breath in my body I will make everyone proud. I will be a leader.
A Memoir by LeQuita C. Harrison, written 9/20/2014 Comfort is serenity and safety which creates memories. I wouldn’t exclude my own home from this comfort because that is my foundation. It is the place I would run to if something bad would happened, but right now let me lure you towards another place of comfort. Grandma’s house is where my life truly began outside of my mother’s womb. Where I was drowned with precious smiles and hugs of love from those I am proud to call my family. My constant cries, smelly diapers, burps, and the first time I let … Continue reading My Home Away from Home
