Strong.

Continuing to share some of the quotes my late-husband collected.  I can picture him standing strong in a mountainous scene as I read this quote from Billy Graham:  “Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has.  Out of pain and problems have come the sweetest songs, and the most gripping stories.  When we take chair lifts high in the Alps to see the scenery, we gaze down from dizzying heights and see some of the most beautiful flowers found anywhere.  It’s hard to believe that just a few weeks before, these flowers were buried under many feet of snow.  The burdens of ice and winter storms have added to their luster and growth.  Our burdens can have the same effect on our lives… like trees that grow on mountain ridges.  Battered by wind, yet trees in which we find the strongest wood.”
