I absolutely agree. Too often defiance comes with anger, or just defiance for its own sake. But the sort of thing you\'re describing is how we get amazing things accomplished.

You're so roght--it's the emotional disabilities that get us. Let me know when you do that post--I like the contrasting images of vessel and dumpster.

However--I wonder if God would help me with that cheeseburger? :-)
