By Margaret Rossi.
Our lives are like a patchwork quilt
that each of us has sewn
with all the blessed and happy times
in patterns all its own.
Warm colours for the ones we love
and for our friends so dear.
With special squares for those we’ve lost
who are forever near.
Bright colours for the joyful times
dark colours for the sad
but through each quilt the Master sews
God’s grace which makes us glad.
He does not leave us when it’s done
for then our quilt will be
a quilt well sewn with golden threads
God’s love has set us free.
So when we come to be with him
we’ll see the quilt we’ve sewn
with all the threads that God’s put in
yes, love has brought us home.
