Relationship



Tapestry- September 2, 2001

reunion of braided experience woven by spirit
reflected in each heart around a table
behind the eyes of unique soul lies imprinted
the creators dream for tomorrow

over collective shoulder the memories of days past
while future promises fulfillment of one plan
life partners, children, creation- all to glorify
ushering divine presence within the tapestry of time

blessings cherished trials bared by connection
the masterpiece created to absorb experience
allowing One to move us into deeper understanding of deity
creating texture for each individual thread

the tapestry reflects story created with each life
joy friendship pain love
revealed in mysterious color of providence
woven together to help heal evolving hearts


***I wrote this poem years ago after one of our Hart Girls reunions and as I was editing photos this morning, I came across my dear friends wedding pics from this past summer. I have been friend's with these women for over 15 years and they are my life line. A couple of the women could not attend and they were sorely missed, but it was a wonderful time of reconnection. We have been through so much together. Weddings, funerals, divorces, break ups, babies, friend squabbles, fun, sorrow, life changes, career changes, graduations, moves... etc., I am the woman I am today, because I have shared my life with these women, and they have trusted their journeys with me as well. And looking at this picture as me thinking...

Thinking about relationship once more, but that is another post! Suffice it to say, I realized yet again, that I am created for relationship... and that is all good.
