Our lives are threads of woven cloth—
each thread is intertwined.
Some bright, some dark, some faded tones—
all loved by One Divine.
And in that woven cloth is found
a pattern so unique—
an incomparable design
of strong, weak, bold and meek.
Our lives are quite unusual—
each varies in degree
and every thread that intertwines
is done elaborately.
And when this masterpiece is done
with each thread interlaced,
the Master Weaver will reveal
a woven cloth of grace.
