Today I have a special treat for my readers that was sent to me from my Grandmother this morning. You see my Grandmother now lives in the Spirit world and I feel her presence more and more each day as I connect to her through my daily meditations.
I was sitting at my dining room table , coffee in hand, in the early morning hours, with just the dim light of the two lamps on my side board. I let the quiet surround me and I picked up the pen. I said a prayer of thanks and started on the page. I thought about my spirit guided meditations over the last few days and I looked up from the page.
And I looked straight at my bookshelf across the room that majestically holds a place in the dining room. to give it a Hemingway /library feel. Immediately, my eyes fell upon a thick, old book. What was that? I didn't have my glasses on , so I got up from the chair and went to it. My Grandmother's Bible. It was calling to me.
I slid open the glass doors of the shelf and reached for it. It is old with the pages fading to a dusty yellowish/brown color and the black cover having a rough texture to it as I hold it in my hands, has come apart. I carry the Bible with cover and all back to my writing table and I open to the pages that I am supposed to explore. I feel honored to have this book in my hand, a gift from beyond. And I know it belongs on the shelves of this glass enclosed, cherry/brown wooden bookshelf.
She had a message for me and today I share it with you.
He Maketh No Mistakes
My Father's way may twist and turn, My heart may throb and ache.
But in my Soul I'm glad I know
He Maketh No Mistakes
My cherished plans may go astray, My hopes may fade away
But still I'll trust my Lord to lead,
For He doth know the way.
Thou night be dark and it may seem that day will never break,
I'll pin my faith, my all in Him .
He Maketh No Mistakes.
There's so much now I cannot see, My eye sight far too dim,
But come what may, I'll simply trust and leave it all to Him.
For by and by the mist will lift and plain it all He'll make.
Through all the way, though dark to me,
He Maketh No Mistakes!
I have no idea if my Grandmother wrote this or if she copied it from somewhere. It doesn't matter.
And for those of you who would like a nice copy of this to hang on your wall at home, please send me a nice note to my email at email@example.com and I will send it off to you!
Love and Light,
