Welded together by God

I love analogies. They are so perfect for helping me not only understand something but to recall the point later on. I have often looked at my life as a tapestry with the threads woven through—God weaves and sews me together, I have often thought. Today I was looking at my shelf and noticed my lovely “cathedral-window-shaped” wrought iron piece. Well, it may not actually be wrought iron, but this thing is heavy. Yet it looks so delicate. Strong but delicate. You can see right into it—you can count on it staying put because it is strong. Yet it has lighthearted beauty about it. There are an infinite number of ways to count the connections within the piece. It is analagous to me (and each of us) being God’s creation. He created me (welded me together)—and there are infinte ways to look at me and try to understand me. Yet the dimensions of my attributes, gifts, strengths, and gaps all are essential to the creation that is me…..the same can be said for each of us. Imagine a million of these all lined up —different shapes and designs. What an extraordinarily gorgeous and artistic display that would be!

I have included the photo of the piece I am writing about. Isn’t it stunning?
