and there by "rests," and we foolishly think we have
come to the end of the tune. God sends a time of
forced leisure, sickness, disappointed plans,
frustrated efforts, and makes a sudden pause
in the choral hymn of our lives.
Not without design does God write the music of our lives.
But be it ours to learn the tune, and not be
dismayed at the "rests." Patience is the finest &
worthiest part of fortitude.. the rarest too
These "rests" are not to be slurred over,
nor to be omitted, nor to destroy the melody,
or change the keynote.
If we just look up, God Himself will be there
to beat the time for us, so we can strike the next note
full and clear.
