Spiritual Health

Being healthy doesn't always mean physically - it also means emotionally, spiritually and mentally. So if you have religious beliefs, make sure you take time for your spiritual health and for your faith.

I heard this poem the other day after the passing of a good friend's relative, and just thought it was a very comforting thought, especially for anyone who has lost a loved one:

Written by B.M. Franklin (1882-1965)

My life is just a weaving
Between my Lord and me.
I cannot choose the colors
He weaves so skillfully.

Sometimes He weaveth sorrow
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.

Not ‘til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And explain the reasons why-

The dark threads are as needful,
In The Weaver’s skillful hands
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.
