Autumn, leaves, tides and seasons all remind me that everything is constantly changing. "What we see around us is temporary and will soon be destroyed, but that which we can't see will last forever." 2 Cor. 4:18 Spending time with God sustains and lifts me up. I know there is a lot of sadness out there and I have had my share of it. I was devastated when my partner left me and my unborn baby - a sadness that has never fully left but I find deep consolation in Him. To anyone out there who has an aching heart - Look to Jesus - he has satisfied me and he can do the same for you. I want to share a poem by an unknown author titled -The Loom of Time
Man's life is laid in the loom of time to a pattern he does not see, while the weavers work and the shuttles fly till the dawn of eternity.
Some shuttles are filled with silver threads and some with threads of gold, while often but the darker hues are all they may hold.
But the weaver watches with skillful eye each shuttle fly to and fro, and sees the pattern so deftly wrought as the loom moves sure and slow.
God surely planned the pattern: each thread, the dark and fair, is chosen by His master skill and placed in the web with care.
He only knows its beauty, and guides the shuttles which hold the threads so unattractive, as well as the threads of gold.
Not till each loom is silent, and the shuttles cease to fly, shall God reveal the pattern and explain the reason why
The dark threads were as needful In the weaver's skillful hand As the threads of gold and silver For the pattern which He planned.
