"It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light." -Taylor Benson
My heart goes out to all the families and friends of those who were involved in the sad event of the DANA airline plane crash which took place last week in Lagos,and nobody knows exactly how hurt you feel except the Lord,He's with us even in the storm...I have however attached below, verses of a poem from a faith-based magazine which I find comforting at a time like this:. The story is told of a preacher who would visit the homes of families who were going through tragedy or trial. He would show them a woven silk bookmark with tangled threads running in all directions. It had no discernible pattern, and the colors were all jumbled up. After a while, he would turn the bookmark over and show them that what they had been looking at was the back side; the front revealed a beautiful design with the words "GOD IS LOVE!"


My life is but a weaving

Between my Lord and me.

I cannot choose the colors,

He weaves so steadily.

Oft times He weaveth sorrow

And I in foolish pride,

Forget He sees the upper,

And I the underside.

Not till the loom is silent

And the shuttles cease to fly,

Will God roll back the canvas

And explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful

In the Weaver's skillful hand

As the threads of gold and silver

In the pattern He has planned.

--B.M. Franklin

May the good Lord grant you all the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,may you find solace in the knowledge that they have departed to a better place than where we presently are. SHALOM..
