I believe there is no sweeter symbol of
Spring in the South than the magnolia. We
planted two of them right before our daughter's
wedding, and they are in full bloom this year.
I have been reminded of the movie, "Steel Magnolias",
when I have viewed the devastation in the South
this past week. There is a line in the movie: "That
which does not kill us, makes us stronger." My heart
goes out to those in Tuscaloosa and the other towns
so torn apart by the weather. I hope that they will
indeed be made stronger through their adversities.
And somehow, I believe with God's help and grace,
I'd like to give away a print of this photograph.
