Working with the Weaver

Published April 4, 2016 by Healthy Living with nature

Weaving Wonders


The Weaver

My life is but a weaving between my Lord and me;

I cannot choose the colours but He works on steadily.

Often times He weaves in sorrow and I in foolish pride

Forget He see the upper, and I the underside.

Nor till the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to to fly,

Does God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful as the weaver’s skilful hands,

 As the threads of gold and silver on the pattern He has planned.

He knows. He loves. He cares– Nothing the truth can dim

He gives the very best to those, who leave the choice with Him.



Ridding Self of Knots/ Nots

Purposeful Prayer

The Knots prayer………

Dear God

Please untie the knots

that are in my mind,

my heart, and my life.

Remove the have nots,

the can nots, and the do nots,

that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots,

may nots,

might nots that may find

a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots

would nots and 

should nots that obstruct my life.

And most of all

 Dear God

I ask that you remove from my mind,

my heart, my life, all the am nots 

that I have allowed to hold me back,

especially the thoughts

that”I am not good enough“.

I want to have more contact with my family. I want our family to realise they have parents. I want to see more of my family. We are in the downhill run of our life and I want to be remembered with love.

We will still live in Nanango The peace that is there makes life worth living- not rushing through life, through each day without remembering what happened. Live every moment- not just exist. Not sitting around , not being lazy, not vegging- getting lots done

 We already have pets- lots of work but good company, and give unconditional love It’s better when we go on holidays in the van and they can go with us.

 This time next year I will be close to retirement.
I will be seeing more of my family.

 I will do more travelling

 make things for my grandchildren

loving life in general

enjoying relaxation.

 I am going to phone my children once a week

 my goal is to gain courage to do it- put aside a time each night to ring one family. DO IT. (Thursday is out because I go to art class, which I enjoy)

At this present moment I am working towards retirement.

my goal is to be ready, not to suddenly get there and find I have nothing in place to fill the void where work used to be.

I will get courage to phone my family every week. COURAGE! COURAGE! COURAGE!

I will LIKE using the phone

 It can be user friendly COURAGE!COURAGE! COURAGE!

 I LOVE my Family.

 I am proud of their achievements

 I like who I am

I am proud of my Achievements!

Whatever you can do, or dream, you can begin it.

Boldness has genius power and magic in it. Goethe


What’s happened since then

I have semi retired

 I have a part time job to be with children to ward off  loneliness

 I do get to travel

 I have been to see my children on a number of occasions.

 I still have not conquered my telephone phobia.

 I have gained a driving Phobia.

 I keep busy.

Most of the time I enjoy life. I don’t attend art classes any more. Have to find another art class.
