Tension

We find comfort among those who agree with us, growth among those who
don't. -Frank A. Clark

It's probably good to remember this right now when there is so much tension in our country. I'm thankful we live in a country that allows tension. Humility cannot grow next to pride and pride is rampant where there is no tension. Conflict, within it's bounds, means we have the possibility of moving forward. This is what I'm telling myself for the next two weeks anyway. :)

I like the way you put all of those thoughts into words...my heart did a non verbal "Amen!" Can't wait to see you very very soon! Katie R

If conflict and those who don't agree with us cause growth, I grew by leaps and bounds yesterday.
