TAPESTRY

 
June 18, 2014 074
The textures and the colors in this tapestry called life
Are found in each experience, whether it be joy or strife
How oft our human hearts see only tangles, knots and snares
And we wonder at the chaos caused by our worldly cares
 
Sometimes the threads are darker than we think they should be
And the clouds around our circumstance make it difficult to see
“O Father, give us wisdom, be our strength and light our way…
We know You are the answer, please help us Lord, we pray.”
 
***
 
 “My child, come sit beside Me, listen closely to My voice
You may see through earth bound eyes of man, or My eyes…
its your choice
 
Your tapestry was woven from experiences known
Each one a thread unique, with hues and textures of its own
You view the underneath side full of human faults and fears
But I the finished upper side, perfected through the years
You see I take each moment, every person, every strife
And stitch by stitch I finish it:  your tapestry,  your life
 
So look my child, look through My eyes, look from my seat above
And see a work completed, full of beauty, stitched in love
And remember when you taste what seems a bitter pill to eat
That your life needs yet another shade to make your tapestry complete”
