Have a Wonderful Day in Every Way

"And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, 

finds tongues in trees, 

books in the running brooks, 

sermons in stones, 

and good in everything." ~William Shakespeare

Artist~Charlotte Bird

I love elephants

Man's life is laid in the loom of time
To a pattern he does not see,
While the weaver works, and the shuttles fly
Till the dawn of eternity.

Some shuttles are filled with silver thread,

And some with threads of gold,

While often but the darker hue

Is all that 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 their shuttles cease to fly,
Shall God unroll 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 has planned."
~The Loom of Time/Author Unknown

“Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien 

"A lot of walking away will do your life good. Walk away from arguments that lead you to anger and nowhere. Walk away from people who deliberately put you down. Walk away from any thought that reduces your worth. Walk away from the failures and fears that stifle your dreams. The more you walk away from things that poison your soul, the happier your life will be." — Dodinsky
