On Patchwork Quilts
Updated: Aug 19, 2022
The beauty of patchwork quilts is fully displayed often only after the quilt and design are completed.
Much like our lives. Many of the events in our lives do not match up, some quite incomprehensible, while others are like a thousand-piece puzzle. Only after we have lived much of our years do we understand why "things" happened. And for some, it may even take a lifetime to comprehend. Sometimes, not in this life.
It is one of the lessons from Steve Job's speech at a Stanford graduation. He said that only later in life are we able to connect the dots. There is no way we can understand "things" until many events have passed.
We need to trust in our Lord that there is a reason for everything that happens in this life, and that He has a plan for each of us. As Padre Pio said,"Pray. Hope. And don't worry."
That advice is indeed very difficult to follow, but those words help us to focus and rely on our Lord and not on our understanding.
And to trust that our quilt will be as unique and as beautiful as God planned it to be.
