is but a weaving
Between my God and me.
I do not choose the colors,
But God works steadily.
And I, in foolish pride,
Forget God sees the top
While I the underside.
Not until the
loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And explain the reasons why.
But, the dark
threads are as needful
In the skillful weaver's hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern God has planned.

Thus, there is a
plan for our lives which is unbeknownst to us. The dark threads (pain
and sorrow, trials and tribulations, mistakes, troubles, dark and dreary
days) are mixed in with the threads of gold and silver (our joys, our
pleasures, our good times, our successes, our happiness). Both are necessary
in order for our lives to be shaped. We don't know what is in store
for us, but God does. We don't know that path that our lives will take,
but God does. We question the parts of the weaving that we don't understand,
but it is all woven together with care and love. The pain and sorrow
are there for a purpose, for us to learn from. And, in the end, the
picture of our lives - the beautiful tapestry - is revealed as a wonderful
work of art.
