Did anyone else hear Canon Ann Easter's reflection this morning on Radio 2 with Clare Balding? It was about God weaving a tapestry and I thought it was really lovely. I wondered whether anyone knew if it comes from somewhere or if it was specially written? I had a look round the BBC website and couldn't find it.

This poem by B.M. Franklin is the only poem I know of offhand about God weaving a tapestry - was that it?
Sometimes He weaveth sorrow
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside

Here's the link to the programme. It can still be listened to on BBC iPlayer for 6 days.

It wasn't that one Pam but some similar ideas.

Maybe she wrote it specially for the programme.

It's the one at the top called 'to weavers everywhere'.
