Memories and Yarn

My memories are like balls of yarn
Which from my basket spill
And I watch as all those threads of life
Go tumbling down the hill!

So lately I’ve been wondering when
Just when those balls will slow
So they can be knit back again
Into neat tighter rows

But then my Lord reminds me
In whose hands our lives are held
And how through every thread of life
He will His story tell

I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made
Marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well.
Psalm 139:14 NKJV

  2. Pastor Pete, your poem reminds me of the extra balls of yarn my Nana would have when she finished crocheting a blanket. Eventually she would collect enough of these extras and stitch up another blanket. I can still picture the blanket that had yarn from each of the afghans she had made for us grandkids. It was fun spotting my blanket amongst my siblings.
