Some things that made me think of a good friend...

"...Maybe there are some of you out there who, like I was for so long, have to search for a reason to get out of bed in the morning and face the day. To you, I wish to say, you are loved beyond belief."
~from Jennifer Sadell's orginal valedictorian speech that she couldn't give because it mentioned Jesus and God, as reprinted in Campus Life

"I had to believe God had something better in store for me, and that these things were going to teach me something...It was like, either believe that, or just completely hate life...With Jesus, even his best buddies didn't really get what he was all about. he was often misunderstood and alone. I know that feeling...he had very real human sufferings and he knew what it was like to be different and not accepted...I believe God gives and he takes away. God isn't stupid. He has a perfect plan in everything he does, including my blindness." ~Ginny Owens, a Christian music artist who became blind at the age of 2, as quoted in Campus Life
