I thought as I leafed through a magazine featuring all kinds of beautiful things created from beads, that it was a wonder to think that there were so many people who have a passion for such tiny things.
The pictures reflected the hours spent, the attention to the littlest detail, and produced a miniature masterpiece, like a painting made of little bits of glass.
I thought of our lives, constructed with such care, we pay attention to the tiniest detail, never missing a chance to express our love for each other, with a touch, or a glance or just a word.
And I think that we are creating our own masterpiece bit by bit, only we are not using beads of glass and stone; ours is created by how we live each hour and minute, how we take time and make it our own.
Our loving words and deeds are strung on threads of purest love; we weave them in, like those tiny little beads, following a pattern given to us from God above.
Our hopes and dreams are woven in, as each of them comes true, along with new discoveries, the anticipation of joy to come - all our moments we share, both small and large, are stitched into the design with such care, and when we step back and look at what our lives have become, we see a creation of love, joy and peace, a tapestry of wonder hanging there.
Each day contains new joys, new things to stitch carefully in, for not a moment should be discarded or lost, for this treasure we have, created by just us two, is a painting of our life of love so true, and each moment lived then becomes a cherished memory of how very much you love me and I love you!
To realize, placed within our hands, lies all the ingredients needed to create a masterpiece ... a reflection of Heaven's love. You've captured beautifully the blessings of marriage, and the masterpiece it presents to the world, when The Master's hands works through ours.
