We who preach and write, do so in a manner different from which the Scriptures have been written. We write while we make progress. We learn something new every day. We speak as we still knock for understanding...If anyone criticizes me when I have said what is right, he does me an injustice. But I would be more angry with the one who praises me and takes what I have written for Gospel truth than I would be with the one who criticizes me unfairly. -Augustine

Three Weavers

A young lady just sent this to me…it’s a poem she penned after reading The Three Weavers (a story that is a must read for all girls and boys! www.lamplighter.net)

Don’t give your love to the shepherd boy,
Don’t give your love to the knight;
Don’t give your love to the lowly page,
Though his teeth are flashing bright.

Weave your love on your special loom,
With tenderness and care;
Weave it now, for one day soon,
You’ll find your prince so fair.

Will you give your love to the shepherd boy?
Or will you wait, instead?
Will you treat your loom like a child’s toy?
Or will purity crown your head?

No, I won’t give in to the shepherd boy,
I won’t give in to the page;
I won’t give in to the foolish knight,
Though a war for my heart has been waged.

I’ll hold out long for my perfect prince,
No matter how weary the wait.
I must be strong for my perfect prince–
If only he’d come today!

I will fight to keep my loom secure–
I must protect what is mine!
They have no right to taint what is pure–
My prince will come in time!
