I'm reading a little book that was my mothers, especially enjoying the segments that she felt so meaningful she highlighted them. This morning's reading was about pieces; how life is like a quilt where new is created by rearranging the pieces of the old. It goes on to include this paragraph that says so much:
"It is quilting theology. God takes the pieces of our lives and stitches them back together, working His will for the good of those who love Him. With His handiwork, life isn't limited to one square. It is a pattern of squares where beauty depends on variety and no single square tells the whole story. They must be seen together --- like a quilt." [Quilted with Love by Goodwin]
That paragraph says it all, doesn't it. And while on the subject of how God takes the pieces back together to create wholeness, would you please pray for a friend today? She and her family are going through the broken effects of an accident and I know your prayers would be cherished. Please pray for healing and wholeness, just like a quilt.
Be blessed today!
