Be honest and frank anyway.

Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

  1. Words gilded with grace and truth and certainly ones to take heed of and live by!

    Thanks for this post :)

  2. I like that, JoAnne. It's so true...people want you to win, but then when you do, they get jealous and start to undermine you. What a wonderful feeling to know we have Jesus to comfort us, wrap His arms around us and say, "it's going to be O.K., just hang on"!

  3. This is an awesome post! Thank you, JoAnne!
