Tapestry of Life
Our stories are woven together, reminding us of the power of sharing our lives with each other.
We don’t accomplish anything in this life alone. Whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of our lives and all the weaving of each individual thread from one to another that creates a wonderful masterpiece. Every thread embraces the essence of life. Every moment is a thread, some are dazzling, while others are murky. When woven together, the light magically blends with the dark.
The tapestry of life continues to be woven through us. Occasionally a chance arises to repair an old, tattered piece of the weave. Something happens to jolt our awareness back in time to an event that resulted in tears and rips. With a new vision, we see the circumstances in a new light and have compassion for the unclear events of the past. While the new experience is being woven into the design, the old rip is being repaired.
When we embrace the many facets of our life, we discover a masterpiece woven by the very hands of our Creator. Every moment is like a thread, some are brilliant and beautiful, others are tattered and torn. When we look only at the frayed threads, in our moments of isolation, they seem inferior and less than desirable. But when woven together by our faithful God, our darker threads blend beautifully with our lighter and more mellow ones. Our beauty coalesces with our pain as God weaves a wonderful tapestry, that ultimately is the beauty of our lives.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139: 13, 14
