In 2005 we bought this house which was built in 1936. It is an interesting place with a lot of smaller size rooms and unexpected features. There was a red area rug in the dining room with an interesting design that made me think more of tapestries than carpet. Both tapestries and traditional cloth are woven. Woven items use thread in various colours, lengths and strengths for the process. Basically, there is a group of threads called the warp which are usually stronger and provide the base of the material; they are held in place by a loom or other holding device. The weft thread is then passed over and under the
warp threads in the desired pattern.
When I consider my life I think about all the relationships I’ve had over the years, family, friends, co-workers, brothers and sisters in Christ, I see how all our lives were woven into each other’s lives. Some were only there for a short time, others have been around since my birth and there is a wide variety of relationships in between. Yesterday I was reminded we were made to be in relationship by our Creator. He formed man (Gen. 2:7), put him in the garden (v.8) and knew they would be together (Gen. 3:8). Yet despite His own presence, God wanted man to have a helper in life, and so He created woman.
Blessed be God… the God of all comfort, He comforting us in all our trouble, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in every trouble, through the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2Cor. 1:3,4
Brothers, if a man is overtaken in a fault, you the spiritual ones restore such a one in the spirit of meekness, considering yourself, lest you also be tempted. Bear one another's burdens, and so you will fulfill the Law of Christ. Gal. 6;1,2
Lord, all glory and honour belong to You.
Thank You for bringing every person into my life and using them to change me.
Thank You that we are not alone.
We have You. We also have our brothers and sisters in You.
What a magnificent life You have given us!
