Yikes. This week's theme was a bit scary to tackle. Perhaps I really don't want to know what people think of me! However, I decided to go for the real deal and asked my friends. Many mentioned strength, and a couple mentioned me being a "steel" magnolia.
From my friend Kelli: "I say you take a photo of that Magnolia Terry is speaking of :) It exemplifies optimism, strength, it's a friendly tree, and the flowers are beautiful (which you are too), it's creative. Just a thought. :)"
There were several other responses that warmed my heart and gave me many ideas for photos, but . . . I had to go with what I could actually find!
I'm so tempted to go into all the reasons why I'm not near as strong as many people think I am, but I will just say this: my strength only comes from the Lord. I can only pray that His strength is what people see!
