In a world where the astounding and extraordinary have become almost commonplace, where it is increasing rare to be really shocked by anything, it is still possible to be happily surprised by the unexpected. Last Saturday, Carole was showing me some new flowers she had planted along the back of the house. Most of them were still a little "dull" from their recent transplanting. But one lone bloom stood out. Its colors were so brilliant, and its petal design so exquisitely arranged, it was truly amazing! We can be glad that God the Creator loves such beauty.

BEIRUT, Lebanon - For the rest of the world, the disappearance of the imam Moussa al-Sadr is probably at most a footnote in the checkered history of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.
