The Way It Is

There is a thread you follow
It goes among things that change,
but it does not change.
People wonder what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread,
but it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it, you can't get lost.
Tragedies happen, people get hurt,
or die, and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you can do can stop time's unfolding.
You don't ever let go of the thread.
William Stafford

For me that thread is Jesus. What's your thread?

I shall not find Christ at the end of the journey unless he accompanies me along the way. Esther De Waal
