Tapestry of Memories

 

For Christmas I had received a warm wool scarf from one of my daughters. My family is always teasing me that I am always cold. I have found that once my neck is warm, the rest of me usually starts to feel warm too. Why am I mentioning this gift to you?

Attached to the scarf was this piece of material with the words “Woven Threads” as the title. I thought to myself that this was such a unique way to get a message across to the gift recipient. I would like to share this message with you:

 

As you walk down your journey’s path,

You collect memories along the way.

Each one provides a color to weave the unique tapestry of your life.

 

Some colors represent your seasons of joy and your faith.

Others represent walks through sadness, lessons you’ve learned, people you love, lives you’ve touched,

forever friends you’ve made.

 

The multiple colors in this woven scarf remind you each memory is precious and has a purpose.

 

You are wonderfully made – wonderfully woven together.

 

Are you willing to share this unique gift of “you” with others? Do you know someone who needs some love, peace, and comfort?
