Faith and Courage in Seattle

Russell Wilson at Seattle Childrens Hospital on February 3 2015Even for those of us who are not really football fans, there is a lot we can learn from the heart, teamwork, faith and courage of the Seattle Seahawks.  Life can be a lot like a football game with the struggle to advance, and the strategy and strength that is needed to achieve a goal.  We would like to go from one success to another, but the truth is that we often encounter adversity and do better the next time.  After the devastating loss in the Superbowl game on February 1, 2015, Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson said, “Thank you God for the opportunity….  We’ll be back…  Every setback has a major comeback.”

Less than 48 hours after the Superbowl, Russell Wilson went back to work at his “other job,” visiting patients at Seattle Children’s Hospital.  What’s really the most important?  We can appreciate and learn from Wilson’s example of showing faith and courage in all endeavors, and going forward to “what’s next” without regrets or recriminations.
