Birmingham

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair. (A Tale of Two Cities)

I am grateful for Birmingham's beauty and it's equally divided four seasons. I am grateful for the football loving, BBQ eating, Jesus worshiping, country listening, Southern hospitality and culture. I am grateful for the wonderful friends I've made, and I am extremely grateful for the Refiner's fire I've experienced here. I love Birmingham and it will always hold a special place in my heart.
