Faith


Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things - with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope. ~Corazon Aquino

This week, I've started a new blog. Its title rings with this quote in some way; "..with blazing serene hope". I'd like your impression, GZ, in answer to the intro question I set there.
Peace.
