Tapestry of Love

Well, I am home after being gone for 5 days. Bo and I had a great trip to Virginia.  We visited Colonial Williamsburg.  Stayed at the beautiful Williamsburg Inn.  This was our first trip to this amazing place.  The weather just added to the awesomeness of the 2 days there.  We were able to participate in a court scene...I was a justice (not legal in Colonial times, being a woman and all) and Bo was a man asking for permission to start holding Presbyterian services in the town.  It was all great fun.  

Williamsburg Inn

Williamsburg also has great outlets...right off Richmond Road.  We had a blast there on our way to Virginia Beach.  

We met some wonderful people at Regent University in Virginia Beach.  We had a great time there.  The campus is beautiful.  The architecture is amazing. The professors of the MDIV department were outstanding.  It was a long day but everywhere you stepped, you could feel the presence of God.  Even sitting around the dinner table with other potential students, God showed up.

As good as it is to get away and be with my love...there is no place like home. The comfort of your own home, seeing my kids and grand babies...that is my life dance.  I love this dance I call life.  Not always easy but always full of love.

Pulling into the garage at home!!! Woo Hoo!

I want you woven 
into a tapestry of love
in touch with everything 
there is to know of God.
Colossians 2:2 MSG

Merriam Webster dictionary says as one of its definitions of Tapestry:
Something made up of different things, people, colors, etc.  

I want you woven into a tapestry...different things...God made all things...every good and perfect gift comes from the Father...people...we are created in the image of God...everyone...even those we have a hard time liking...of Love.  

As humans, we are not one dimensional.  Many things make up our lives. Family, Faith, Friends, Experiences, Enemies...all these make up the tapestries of our lives.  But, we must have one thing in common...God, and God is love. That is the common thread throughout all the tapestries of everyone who was, is and is to come.  It's the red thread of his death/blood that cleanses us all and makes us clean, able to commune with Him...reconnecting us to Him...reordering our nature to line up with the nature of Christ.  We were actually created for this but sin has altered our nature, separating us from Christ.  But his body and blood...Communion...reconnects us...realigns us...reorders us to our original purpose.  So that we can be in touch with everything there is to know of God, as the scripture states.  Tapestry of LOVE...I love that.  That is a beautiful phrase.  

I am thankful for the Tapestry that is my life.  I am thankful that my tapestry is not finished yet and I have a chance today to love and learn all there is to know of God.  What is your Tapestry made of today?
