Life is but a Weaving
(the Tapestry Poem)

“My life is but a weaving
Between my God and me.
I cannot choose the colors
He weaveth steadily.

Oft’ times He weaveth sorrow;
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.

Not ’til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And reveal the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful
In the weaver’s skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned

He knows, He loves, He cares;
Nothing this truth can dim.
He gives the very best to those
Who leave the choice to Him.

Corrie ten Boom

This show used to make me laugh.
Back when the family could watch TV together.

There are some people in life who you can go without seeing for a year or two and you can meet up and connect and laugh and share life with and it feels like you haven't been apart that long. Funny how that works.

Two weeks ago now, (Where did that time go??) Toni and Chris came by for a few days visit. It was a lovely good time and we were able to share a bit of life together. They are friends, about our age and some shared interests, who we can be ourselves with pretty easily. I like that.

Life hasn't been particularly easy for them and their family, but they are showing me how to do it with honesty and some amount of grace. There are things that they have to teach me.

And then off they go, home to the other side of the world. And I'll have to wait till next visit.

Maybe we'll go see them a bit before their next visit here.

Just a post to hold some links I like to visit on grey days.
