Mosaic

the days are pieced together
like a fascinating mosaic
individual tiles stand alone
varying shapes
distinct hues
differing values
brokenintentionally snapped
into distinct shapes
by the artist….
when placed side by side

contiguouscreate an engaging mosaic
alluring,
arresting,
beguiling.

graceful fluid movement flows from one fragment to the next.
only the artist knows the direction of movement…
the overall design…
the underlying theme.
the canvas cannot direct placement of the days
only accept what is given 

did you notice
jade  strands woven
amongst umber and cocoa?
unlikely in nature,
but fitting in a this beautiful masterpiece.

I am reminded of the verse in Romans that tells us
all things work together
for good
for those who love God
and are called according to His purpose.

Like Jesus spoke in parables, paralleling the spiritual and physical worlds, God convicts and teaches me through similar daily events.

No matter the shape, size, texture, or color of the tile –
placement is key.
There is an artist at work
laying the tiles
with intentional design.
He has the whole picture.
He sees everything inside the frame.
He can be trusted
with the pliers, grout and ceramic.
