That’s My Story and I’m Sticking to it

Everyone has a unique story. Most of us are engaged in our own narrative, watching the chapters go by. Discovering the meaning in our personal story is a lifelong pursuit. Where do I fit?… Who am I meant to be?… Do I add value anywhere?…

handwoven warp rep rug

After many hours of planning, warping, weaving, and finishing, this warp rep rug is ready to be put to use!

The colors and graphic boldness of this design won’t fit just any ol’ room. But don’t worry! This rug will be perfect for one special room, and we’ll all exclaim, This rug was made for this very place! Don’t we all hope to say that about ourselves? I was made for this… I’m in my sweet spot… My life is making a difference…

If I’m in a story, surely there is an author! When I delve into the author’s story, I end up finding where I belong. My story is being written within a much, much bigger story–one that I can base my life on. (Handweaving is one element in this current chapter of my story; and for that, I’m incredibly grateful.)

May you find your sweet spot in the bigger story.

    I add my “Amen” to Wende’s comment. And I LOVE this line “When I delve into the author’s story, I end up finding where I belong. My story is being written within a much, much bigger story–one that I can base my life on.” SO true! It points the reader to the love story God wrote to us ~ His word. And the fact that He has woven each of us together for a purpose. (Psalm 139 is a favorite.) You may be finding a sweet spot in this blog where you can make a difference for God’s kingdom purposes!

      Thanks for you kind comment, Bev! I will be thrilled if this writing turns out to be a sweet spot for me. I’m very much in the growing and stretching phase in this new endeavor, but with encouragement like yours I’m certainly going to keep at it for a while.

    Hi Karen, I’m sorry I have not visited your site until now. My email account was having problems, but is working now.
    I enjoyed your word picture of our lives being woven in to any even bigger picture than we can see. And, what a beautiful rug you have made!
    I’m glad God loves us so much that he wants us to have a “sweet spot”.
