    You think?

    I Think God is a Quilter
    (Author Unknowned)

    I think God is a quilter
    Who takes His needle and thread
    To piece our world from nothingness
    And give it form, instead.

    I think God is a quilter
    And everything I see
    Are pieces from His careful hand
    From tree to bumblebee.

    I think we see God's stitches
    His texture everywhere;
    The velvet moss, the grainy sand,
    The silky strands of hair.

    I think God is a quilter;
    Stitching tight and tiny rows,
    Adding to my scraps and pieces,
    Seaming everything He knows.

    I think He cuts the patterns
    From what I'd throw away.
    He shows me how to use each scrap
    In His redeeming way.

    I think God quilts a pattern
    From everything I live;
    But He can only stitch the quilt
    From what I choose to give.

    I think God is a quilter
    Stitching strength where I am weak.
    Showing me that life He touches
    Embraces everything I seek.

    I think God is a quilter
    From the patience in each thread;
    Proving length of time no barrier;
    Treating time a gift, instead.

    I think quilts are lessons
    God uses just to teach
    That our pieces and our remnants
    Have kaleidoscopic reach.

    So, in the life I'm living
    With pieces everywhere
    I'll give them to the Quilter
    To stitch with loving care.

    I'll give them to the Quilter
    Unwanted though they be
    And with His work of quilting
    He'll make a quilt of me.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.
