In our whole life melody the music is broken off here and there by rests, and we foolishly think we have
come to the end of time.
God sends a time of forced leisure, a time of sickeness and disappointed plans, and makes a sudden pause in the hymn of our lives, and we lament that our voice must be silent and our part missing in the music which ever goes up to the ear of our Creator.
Not without design does God write the music of our lives.
Be it ours to learn the time and not be dismayed at the rests.
If we look up, God will beat the time for us.
