(This pencil drawing lives on our living room wall. It is one of my favorites works of Pauls art. The detail in every inch is like the patchwork of our lives. It has won awards.)
Each line is like a vein, that weaves both in and out,
Each shadow is created as we search the world about,
Our paths may go in different ways, they lead to where we’re going,
But often we just hide away, and leave some seeds for sowing.
Each whisper of the wind can satisfy our longing,
The tempest of the breath of God assures us of belonging,,
The road is filled with obstacles and detours on the way,\
But God will lead us bck to Him as we begin to stray.
His tender touch will guide us, through wind and sleet and rain,
He’ll carry us through danger through suffering and pain,
Because He is our Father God, we know His love is true,
He carries us when we can’t walk and brings us safely through.
