Our life here on earth is much the same as a beautiful quilt on display
The pattern is there, we are given the cloth to form the blocks each day.
As children, we choose the reds and the golds, the pinks, the blues and the greens.
We have never yet seen the drabness that comes with the shattering gray of our dreams.
We form the blocks haphazardly with no thought of hues or design.
It is only when it is half finished do we notice the passing of time.
It is then we can see the red and the gold more beautiful patches of gray.
Just like the darkest nights of our lives are made bright by the breaking of day.
As the quilt stretches out in my twilight years and I add a few stitches each day.
I can see the touch of the Master’s Hand as I look at those patches of gray.
Life wasn’t meant to be a an array of bright colored pinks and blue.
He knew there would be patches of gray when He gave the pattern to you.
God has great plans for each of us (Jeremiah 29:11), so we need to make our Quilt of Life for His glory.
