The Loom of Time

Published on January 18, 2013e-mail By Susanne

Here is one of my favorite poems.  It helps to remind us that life has deeper patterns than we may see at this time in our life:

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 others but the darker hues

Are all that they may hold.


But the weaver watches with skillful eye

Each shuttle flies to and fro,

And sees the pattern so deftly wrought

As the loom moves sure and slow.


God surely planned the pattern,
