God Writes Straight with Crooked Lines

Her face showed grief, but not despair
Her head though bowed had faith to spare.
And even now she could suppose
His thorns would somehow yield a rose.
Her life with Him was full of signs
That God writes straight with crooked lines.
Dark clouds can hide the rising sun
And all seem lost when all be won.

—Jeremiah Denton
