PIECES AND PATTERNS
(Her Life Was Like a Quilt Pattern)
Ninety-three years were the pieces;
Each hour and each day, the weave.
Together they made a beautiful pattern;
Its beauty our lives did perceive.
Her life was the beautiful pattern;
Her love the strong,binding thread.
Events were bound together with joy,
And peace filled the life that she led.
She the last stitch has taken;
The pattern is all complete.
She has put all the pieces together.
Now she is at Jesus’s feet.
(Joy – N – Peace)
