Poem of the Week.

“My Life is but a Weaving”

My life is but a weaving

between my Lord and me;

I cannot choose the colours,

He worketh steadily.

Oft times He weaveth sorrow,

And I , in foolish pride;

Forget He sees the upper,

And I the under side.

Not ’til the loom is silent

and the shuttles cease to fly,

Shall God unroll the canvas

and explain 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 His very best to those

who leave the choice with Him.


Today, as promised, details of my October Giveaway.

If you would like to enter, then please comment on this post only – if you’re happy to do it then please tell me one thing about yourself.

October Giveaway.

The giveaway includes the Cross Eyed Cricket chart Three Gables, the hand dyed linen 32 count (small piece), a hand made scissors fob, a set of Hallowe’en buttons and a hand made bracelet (generous size).

The fob is made of sterling silver findings, leather and hand made lampwork beads.

The bracelet is made of sterling silver components, including the “believe” bead and gemstone beads.

Today’s post is short and sweet, I’m afraid. Β This is what happens when a body has to “work” for a living!!

Thanks for stopping by today and also for the lovely comments you continue to leave.

Edinburgh is a lovely city, I never tire of visiting it.

Please pop in later in the week and remember to leave a comment if you want to be entered in the giveaway. I will make the draw this Friday 15th at ten o’clock in the evening our time (UK).
