    Our family is like a patchwork quilt
    With kindness gently sewn
    Each piece an original
    With beauty all its own
    With threads of warmth and happiness
    Its lightly stitched together
    To last in love throughout the years
    Our family is forever.

    I wrote this one to go with all my baby quilts.

    This quilt of may colors was made with love and joy,
    I hope it helps to welcome your precious girl or boy.

    Use it during playtime or when they go to sleep
    Use it when you cuddle them, the chill away to keep.

    Wrap this quilt around them when on an outing you go
    This quilt was given to be used, not just made for show.

    And as mother childern can make a mess I know,
    If the quilt gets dirty, in the washing machine it can go.

    I Think God is a Quilter


    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 pattern
    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 live 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.

    ROFL. Love that prom dress and the reaction. I wouldn't be too thrilled either. Thanks for a laugh.
