Do you know that our life is like a pencil?
A pencil maker told the pencils 5 important lessons.
1: Everything you do will always leave a mark.
2: But you can always correct the mistakes you make.
3: What is important is what is inside you.
4: In life you will undergo painful sharpening which will make you a better pencil.
5: To be the best pencil you can be you must allow yourself to be held and guided by a hand that holds you.
As we sail though life,
don’t avoid storms and rough waters,
just let it pass.
Calm seas never make skillful sailors.
''Do men imagine that they will be left (at ease) because they say, We believe and will not be tested with affliction? Lo! We tested those who were before them. Thus Allah knoweth those who are sincere, and knoweth those who feign''
(Surah Al-‘Ankabut: 29:2-3)
