A PERFECT THREAD, A PERFECT TAPESTRY

[final thread - Benediction]

Behold
I have made your face strong against their faces
And your forehad strong against their foreheads.
Fear them not, nor be dismayed at their looks.
Though they be a rebellious house.
Then the Spirit lifted me up and took me away,
And I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit.
And I herd the noise of the wings
Of the living creatures that touched one another.
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth,
Where there was no more death,
Nor sorrow
Nor crying
Nor any more pain.
And then I was at peace, contentment filled me forever,
And I rejoiced upon it.

Merry meet, merry part, and merry meet again.

Adapted from scripture, Ezekiel 3: 8, 9, 13, 14; and Revelations 21: 1,4

That is gorgeous. I am printing it and putting it in my burnout file (where I turn when things are just a bit much).

The end reminds me a bit of Julian's "All will be well, and all will be well, and all manner of things will be well."

Really, I think this quote saw me through a potentially difficult day yesterday at work. My forehead was strong against theirs.

Re: icon. Thanks! I have two "tao" goldfish icons I painted that used to be on my website; the red "sealing wax" one was used on my resume and a few other pages.
