Did you ever feel like the BACK of A TAPESTRY Before ?
It was a gift that was given to me. . .
A beautiful Tapestry/Needlepoint of the 23rd Psalm
that she had matted and framed.
When she gave it to me as a
‘Just Because I Was Thinking of You Gift,’
I knew exactly where it should hang in our house–
I didn’t search for a Wall Stud
and I certainly didn’t put in a Wall Anchor. . .
I just eyed it up and put in a nail
and hung the framed piece of art.
I have no idea why a picture like that has a tendency of falling down at 3:30 A M instead of 3;30 P M,
but that’s exactly what happened.
I knew it wasn’t an intruder–
I knew what it was and when I went to the hallway,
there it was,
amongst the many shards of glass and busted hunks of frame scattered across the floor.
It’s not a huge surprise, but
There’s a D I S T I N C T reason why you don’t hang the Back of a tapestry facing out–
It’s U g l y:
tumbled up knots.
Kind of hit me that in many ways. . .
We’re a lot like the back of a needlepoint/tapestry
with all of those loose ends,
dangling strings that seemingly has no purpose or meaning
until you look at the front of it. . .
but with our personal Tapestries,
we seldom get a quick glance let alone a full fledged look.
Go ahead. . .
look Closely at the back of your Tapestry.
Among those multi-colored threads
you might well find a few
g o l d e n s t r a n d s
where some special Ones
have undeniably interwoven themselves into the very
Fabric of your Tapestry…
N O T I C I N G
that. . .well. . .
it just might give what others would call
a complete mess of threads,
a very intricate interpretation of not only who you are. . .
but continually Becoming.
Threads. . .
