Thomas Edisonís fire
by JOHN D. COOK on NOVEMBER 23, 2009
When Thomas Edison was sixty-seven years old, his factory was destroyed in a fire. This was his response the next morning:

Thereís value in disaster. All our mistakes are burned up. Thank God, we can start anew. ~ Thomas Edison


The Ash Heap

Sitting amongst the ash heap
Lord I find you there
Disaster all around me
I have hope in earnest prayer

Sitting amongst the ash heap
I find strength in you
No matter what becomes
I know you will see me through

When Iíve lost it all in life
I can start anew
Not in my own power
Itís all in what You will do!

Sitting on the ground broken
Ashes in my hair
Iím closer to the ground
And I know I find you there

Lord, If this is what it takes
For my heart to seize
Permit the trials come
Lead me down onto my knees
