Life is so wonderful! More then that how wonderful is the ONE who created life. We can see it all around us each day. Man did not make these things or us. So when we see a magnolia tree, what a great design! Weather it is spring or winter it is always green. EVERGREEN! Leaves may fall off it but the tree keeps living.

 

Welcome back Lyida to the forum. Glad to here you are feeling better. Appreciating life! Thanks for the creations.IMG_0059.JPGLive!

Hello, Hubert!

Well, winter finally got the best of me and I've been down with a cold that doesn't seem to want to let go of me yet.  But I'm doing better, so I've decided to come back on the forums.

 

Today I had a chance to catch up where I last left off here.  I saw the drawings and the new photos as well.  The drawings captured the story from your book and the color photos reminded me of what Spring and Summer has in store for us all.  All were very nice.

 

So let me add my contribution to our magnolia wishes......

 

and then remember my personal favorite......

We have 73 days til Spring.  Best wishes, Hubert! 

Lydia

Again, here is the first magnolia tree (mother's magnolia tree) that the idea for all this writings. The tree is over 40 years old...........................Now the other day I found these smaller magnolia trees about 100 yards across the field from mother's tree. Could these be offspring's of mother's tree. Can a DNA test prove it? Let me know.IMG_0059.JPGMother's magnolia tree

mule.jpgReady to work.

 

What is work? Well, I will tell you. If you are plowing behind a mule from sun up to sun down. My Dad did it for over 25 years to take care of his family (12 children) without complaining. I wanted to lean how to plow and my brothers taught me how to at the age of 11. No magnolias in this picture. Dad was a true man. But yet still a caring and loving father. We did not go lacking.

Thank you so much LydiaN! I wonder who else will see this page. Here is more. A lady on my job liked my two books so much I paid her to draw over 50 pictures from reading my books. Here is one. Do you see the Magnolia Tree?

You, HubertG, seem to be a man of many talents.  Writing and painting.  How wonderful!  Maybe you could be the next Romare Bearden or Jacob Lawrence.

Here is a painting I did of Mom cleaning the dust off our shoes on the way to religions services. Can you see the Magnolia tree in the background? And can you see me standing on the right side?mom.jpgMom dusting off our shoes.

The magnolia trees and bloom speaks for themselves. "Just look at them!" It is good to wait for things in life. I can't wait for the spring of next year 2019.

 

Thank you!

 

P.S. If someone would just believe me about the scripts. (I will wait)
