Message:  Sending lots of love to Roy, Sylvia, you and your whole family. Wish I could send a bunch of hugs through the internet.

This used to be a favorite poem of my Mom's. I'm trying to hang on to it's sentiments now. Hope it helps you.

The Weaver
by Benjamin Malacia Franklin
(Originally titled, "Just a Weaver")

My life is just a weaving
Between my Lord and me.
I cannot change the color
For He works most steadily.

Oft times He weaves the sorrow
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.

Until the loom is silent
And the shuttle cease to fly,
Will God roll back the canvas
And explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful
In the skillful Weaver's Hand
As the golden threads of silver
He has patterned in His Plan.
