Life’s tapestry cloth is all laid out
And set for us to sew
It’s designed for us very carefully
By the one above who knows
The colors and patterns are all drawn out
With instructions for each step
Each stitch we add if we follow the guide
Will reveal the promises kept
For in this Life we have our God
Who drew out this beautiful plan
He knows the colors and patterns needed
Each stitch in the hour glass of sand
This tapestry will take a life time
One so detailed and so true
Each day He adds more color
So our picture won’t be blue
The rainbows of life and season
Are filled with many strings
The ones we love make up those strings
Choose wisely to who we cling
For soon Life’s tapestry will be complete
No more time to add any more
What will we have to show our Lord?
Unfinished work, behind life’s door?
We must make each day a piece of art
As God planned for us to do
Life’s beautiful tapestry, a picture of God
Will be left from me and you.
So take a look at the life you live
as your tapestry is displayed
Do you have each stitch in order
Or are there knots along the way?
Every life has some broken strings
And tangles we must face
Its easy to get back on the pattern
If Gods plan each stitch we trace.
