Something in politics worth blogging about here!

"A ship in harbor is safe, but that’s not why the ship is built."

- Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, giving her remarks after being named McCain's VP pick

This was said in the context of explaining why she didn't go with the "safe and easy" way of status quo politics. But naturally, I had my cancer glasses on and appreciated the additional application to adversity in our lives and the faith that gets us through it all.

We weren't "built" here on earth to have a safe and easy ride. Not that we are supposed to go out looking for danger, but life is meant to be bumpy so that we can learn and develop our fullest potential. If we press forward with a steadfastness in Christ and a perfect brightness of hope, we can successfully navigate through this life experience.

Along these lines, I've often said, "You don't find out who you really are in the easy times. You find out who you are during the difficult, painful, challenging or disappointing times."

With hope, Wendy

Hey Krista, popping in for a minute - glad you are doing so well. Did you see this article on brain cancer? Maybe you have the gene too.

Hope you continue to do well, I'll be checking the blog.
