All services and interment will be held privately.
My life is but a weaving between my Lord and me.
I cannot choose the colors He worketh steadily.
Sometimes He weaveth sorrow and I, in foolish pride –
Forget He see’s the upper and I, the underside.
The dark clouds are as needful in the weaver’s skillful hands
As the threads of gold & silver in the pattern He has planned.
Not till the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly
will God unroll the canvas & explain the reason why.
~ Love Junella
And now she knows.
