Lydia at the Tapestry Loom by Mary Cassatt
Life is But a Weaving by Corrie ten Boom
My life is but a weaving
Between my God and me.
I cannot choose the colors,
He weaveth 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
Will God unroll the canvas
And reveal 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 the very best to those
Who leave the choice to Him.
Corrie ten Boom often used this poem as she described a tapestry that hangs currently at the ten Boom Museum. I challenge you to read The Hiding Place.
