Hidden Strength

There are some things people don’t know about me. In fact, there are some things I don’t know about myself. Is that true about you, too? When we come unraveled a bit we find out what’s in the hidden places in our hearts.

warp rep rug selvedges

Alternating thick and thin wefts are covered by 2,760 warp threads. View is from the side to show turned weft threads at the edge.

The weft in this warp rep rug is mostly hidden in between the warp threads, and is only revealed at the selvedges. If we think of our hearts as a weaving like this, we could say the selvedges are the parts we let others see. But the hidden part of this weft is the part that makes the cloth strong enough to be a rug. A rug that will be walked on!

There’s a sense of security in knowing that someone bigger than myself sees what is hidden in the fabric of my life. When I do come unraveled, My creator takes those inner threads and weaves them perfectly back into place.

May your hidden beauty be your strength today.

Safely hidden,

Karen

      That unravelling isn’t always easy, but it sure helps in the discovery to find out what’s hidden away in our hearts.
