The Tapestry of my Life

My life is but a weaving

Between my Lord and me.

I cannot choose the colours

He works so steadily.

Oft times He weaves in sorrow,

And I, in foolish pride,

Forget that He sees the upper,

And I, the underside.

Not till the loom is silent

And the shuttles cease to fly,

Will God unroll the tapestry,

And explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needed

In the Weaver’s skillful hand

As the threads of gold & silver

In the pattern He has planned.

No service by request. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Breast Cancer Society.
