Rev. William Asbury Thompson: Yes. Very often.
Tom Salter: You've seen Him then. Can you prove He exists?
Rev. William Asbury Thompson: No. No, but I know He does.
Tom Salter: And you believe He made us as we are.
Rev. William Asbury Thompson: As surely as that we're standing here.
Tom Salter: Then why did He not make us equally strong? Equally well off?
Rev. William Asbury Thompson: I don't know. Man is not in possession of His plans.

A terrific picture of rural life
14 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had seen this movie 30 years ago with my Grandad in rural middle Tennessee and have searched for it any times since. However, I could not remember the name of it. I found it yesterday on TBN and it was all I had remembered it to be. The story as well as the scenery was first class. Many of the homes were still like that in Middle Tn when I first seen the movie. Based on the scenery, the story, and what my relatives told me of rural life in the early 20th century this appears like a pretty accurate portrayal. While life was simpler it was not without tragedy.

Well worth seeing.
