The fabric of our family;

slowly woven by the Master Weaver 

upon the warp and woof of each day.


Just two colors in the beginning— 

Steve’s blue, and my yellow– 

our favorite colors.

Then came the addition of three children


with threads of 

energizing orange 

as they romped through the house,


invigorating green 

as they quickly progressed 

through the stages of development,

and excitable red

as arguments erupted! 

But calm colors were also interwoven 

among the bright:


soft gray for security, 

rich brown for stability, 

and luminous white for the Light 

of Jesus, our Savior. 

Threads of respect and responsibility 

appeared throughout; 

Challenge and trouble, 

hopes and dreams, too.


Each thread faith-strengthened 

And reinforced with love. 


Not easily rended, 

but repaired here and there with forgiveness, 

embellished with the embroidery of laughter,


and scattered with a patchwork of

familiar, soft-hued memories.





As Mother’s Day approaches 

I celebrate 

the fabric of family 

that is fabulously, uniquely ours.

And I thank God that

“He gives the childless woman a family, 

making her a happy mother.

Praise the LORD!”

(Psalm 113:9, NLT)
