We realize that life is not a bunch of loose ends we must tie, or problems we must solve, but it's a profound, eternal tapestry that we are called to be part of.
—Abbie Smith, Inspired By Tozer

The knotted fringe of the handwoven scarf invites my fingers to a gentle caress. I close my eyes, remember the vibrant images, the rich colors, the soft feel of the woven cloth.

What must it feel like to weave something so beautiful?

In a season when I am struggling, feeling pressured choices, short lists, limited options, A or B, is there time for quiet exploration? Opening my mind? My heart? Meditating?

The silence of choosing inaction? Unspoken possibilities in taking no action at all?

When I understand that everything happening to me is to make me more Christlike, it solves a great deal of anxiety.
—A.W. Tozer

Is there room in God's tapestry for quietly waiting?

Renee: Every time I read (or write) a post like this, I can always hear a soft voice deep in my mind. It always says the same thing; "Your choice."

I am amazed that I can go unconscious of that at times but at least I am reassured in knowing that voice is always there. It's just up to me to pay attention to it.
