    GOD'S EMBROIDERY

    I got this nice story from someome . Hoping thta u would like it.


    GOD'S EMBROIDERY

    When I was little, my mother used to sew a great deal. I would sit at her knee and look up from the floor and ask what she was doing.
    She would inform me that she was embroidering.
    As from the underside I watched her work within the boundaries of the little round hoop she held in her hand, I complained to her that it sure looked messy from where I sat.
    She would smile at me, look down and gently say, "Son, you go about your playing for a while, and when I am finished with my embroidering, I will put you on my knee and let you see it from my side."
    I would wonder shy she was using some dark threads along with the bright ones and why they seemed so jumbled from my view.
    A few minutes would pass and then I would hear Mother's voice say, "Son, come and sit on my knee." This I did only to be surprised and thrilled to see a beautiful flower, or a sunset. I could not believe it, because from underneath it looked so messy.

    Then Mother would say to me, "My son, from underneath it did look messy and jumbled, but you did not realize that there was a plan on the top.It was a design. I was only following it. Now look at it from my side and you will see what I was doing."

    Many times through the years I have looked up to heaven and said, "God what are You doing?" He answered, "I am embroidering your life."
    I say, "But it looks like a mess to me. It seems so jumbled. The threads seems so dark. Why can't they all be bright?"
    God seems to tell me, "My child, you go about your business and I shall go about My business and one day I will bring you to
    Heaven and put you on My knee and you will see the plan from My side."

    Saints are fine for Heaven, but they are hell on earth.

            Beautiful.
            What an encouraging way of looking at things.

            Often we don't understand what method is in the madness....but if we believe that there is much we cannot see, it gives us the strength to go on in anticipation of the day when we shall.

              sometimes when we look at life from our point of view it looks soo messy but u never know what Allah has in stock for u....one should never be disappointed from life for Allah is just examining him....
