The Perfect Circle

I was thinking as I was making my jewelry, of how I took different pieces,
and brought them together to make one, each part was connected to the
other with tiny rings of silver until it was completed and done.

But there was always the danger that the little rings would fail, the ends would separate and a gap would appear, and the parts that I had worked so hard to put together, would scatter far and near.

After much thought and work, I discovered the solution, it was so easy to see; it was what kind of rings I used to put them together that kept the pieces as they were meant to be.

The rings were complete, with no cut to open and close, they were made to not come apart,
and the pieces that were attached were strung through with tiny wire, wound
around itself, making one piece - a seamless work of art.

And it reminded me of my life before I met you, trying to take the pieces
of my life and make them become something new.

Nothing seemed to work, the pieces always came apart, my plans never worked out, they all came apart at the seams, and I was always left with nothing but scattered pieces, broken bits of my rainbow dreams.

Then I met Jesus, Who asked to rule supreme in my heart, and He let me know He could take all the pieces and make them one again, never again to come apart.

I learned that He was the perfect circle, without beginning and without end, and He could take a broken life like mine and make it new, not just making it mend.

And so He did, attaching my new life to His, winding the wires securely
around Him, and making a new work of art that would always shine, a new
piece of art that would never dim.

And when I had learned to depend on Him, to have faith and to know dreams
could come true, He gave me the most wondrous gift of all, for that's when
I met you.

I knew that you were meant for me, as I was meant for you, for God had put our wires together, and strung through His perfect circle we were made one out of two.

There were no seams to come apart, the wire of our love was secure and true, and each day a new link is attached to the chain, for each day that I get to spend with you.

"...and He could take a broken life like mine and make it new, not just making it mend." Yes, He most certainly could! I'm so glad!!! He totally transforms; doesn't He? And heals while He's at it. :::smile::: Thank you, Trish, for sharing such a beautiful part of your heart with us.
