I'm stealing another wise saying from a Facebook friend:
Beautiful pictures are developed from negatives in a dark room...So if you see darkness in your life be reassured that a beautiful picture is being prepared.
The past few months have been dark. Somewhere in that darkness I lost the woman I think I was. I haven't found her,and I'm waiting to see what the darkness brings forth. Someone near and dear to me says we will be better for what we've been through. I am trying to believe him.
Many people are wading through dark times. My prayer is that they, too, will believe a beautiful picture is being prepared for them.
As for God's timing in the darkness. . .we have no way of figuring that out. All we can do is grab hold of Faith and not let go.
