The Weaver - Gift-away

 ~ The Weaving, bookmarks ~
"My life is just a weaving
Between my Lord and me.
I cannot change the color
For He works most steadily.

Oft times He weaves the sorrow
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.

Until the loom is silent
And the shuttle cease to fly,
Will God roll back the canvas
And explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful
In the skillful  Weaver's Hand
As the golden threads of silver
He has patterned in His Plan."

The two bookmarks in the above photo will be given away, by random choice, to two individuals who leave comments. The only hoop you must jump through - you must leave a way for me to contact you via your comment. The gift-away will close Friday, midnight, a week from today, and I'll have them in the mail by the following Tuesday.

Blessings ~ our times are in His hands ~

Soli Deo Gloria,

  7. You have mine already, but I am so in awe of you in that you are going though so much and yet you are willing to give.
    This poem has always meant so much to me, I heard Corrie Ten-Boom quote it once. I always hear her accent when I read it.
    It is always a good reminder.

  9. One of my favorite poems. If I won a bookmark I would give it to my mom. She struggles, like many of us, to understand God's plan.

    Been wondering about you and Dave and how you are holding up. Still praying.

    Oh my goodness. That poem brought tears to my eyes. I've not read it before but I'd certainly love to keep it near to read during good times and bad.

    Thank you for the opportunity to enter to win the bookmark and also the blessing of reading the poem.
