Master Tailor


He does all things well-
taking needle and thread,
the perfect hue,
carefully stitching
mending hearts
torn and tattered.

He does all things well-
using thread
woven of mercy and grace
He stitches together
the gaping holes
and frayed edges
making all things new.

Joining the very last One Shot Wednesday gathering (sigh)
and Emily's imperfect prose



Blessings,
Linda

  3. Beautiful image. There's a lot of sewing heritage in my family and I've seen this happen to fabric and I like the idea of it happening in life.

  7. Wonderful analogy and so true. He does stitch us back together; mend our tares. Beautifully said.

  10. Now I know what those patches are from... smiles. But then, haven't we all needed his repairs from time to time?

  11. A title is an important thing, and yours is spot on. To match a very good poem.

  12. I love the fact that the patches He finds to fix me appear so decorative to others. Only He and I know about the hole underneath.
