Our lives are but fine weavings that God and we prepare,

Each life become a fabric planned and fashioned in His care,

We may not always see just how the weavings intertwine,

But we must trust the Master’s hand and follow his design;


For He can view the pattern upon the upper side,

While we must look from underneath and trust in Him to guide….

Sometimes a strand of sorrow is added to His plan,

And though it’s difficult for us, we still must understand

That it’s He who fills the shuttle, It’s He who knows what’s best

So we must weave in patience and leave to Him the Rest….


Not till the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly,

Shall God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why;

The dark threads are as needed in the Weaver’s skillful hand.

As the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.


 Here’s a funeral poem to show support for a deceased person’s family.


In case there’s a time when you just need some cheer,

In case there’s a problem you would like us to hear,

In case there’s a favor you would like us to do-

We’re here if you need us to help see you through.


Here’s one written in the voice of a deceased son speaking to his Mother to encourage her after his passing.

 Last night while I was trying to sleep,

My son’s voice I did hear

I opened my eyes and looked around,

But he did not appear.

 He said: “Mom you’ve got to listen,

You’ve got to understand

God didn’t take me from you, mom

He only took my hand.

When I called out in pain that night,

The instant that I died,

He reached down and took my hand,

And pulled me to His side.

 He pulled me up and saved me

From the misery and pain.

My body was hurt so badly inside,

I could never be the same.

 My search is really over now,

I’ve found happiness within,

All the answers to my empty dreams

And all that might have been.

 I love you all and miss you so,

And I’ll always be nearby.

My body’s gone forever,

But my spirit will never die!

 And so, you must all go on now,

Live one day at a time.

Just understand-

God did not take me from you,

He only took my hand.”
