The tapestry of life has colors
Of every shade and hue,
Some rich and bright;
Some flat and drab,
From red to deepest blue.


The tapestry of life has music
And sounds of every kind;
From loud and shrill
To barely heard,
Expressing heart and mind.


The tapestry of life can be touched,
Its textures rough and smooth;
Like rock and sand;
Or sun and snow,
To rouse us and to soothe.


The tapestry of life has been made
Of all humanity;
In every place,
All walks and times;
Of strangers, you and me.

The tapestry of life is from God,
Lord of all creation;
The breath of life,
The Holy One
Over every nation.

The creator of this tapestry
Embraces you and me;
The universe
Is not so big
That He can’t know and see.


Oh loving God of this tapestry,
Thank You for being near
To each of us
In all You’ve made,
For Your Presence so dear.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
