In today’s reblogged post, Tanya Cliff uses her own hand-knit samples to demonstrate a writer’s words as being strung together like rows or rounds of basic to complex knit stitches. She also quotes a Bible verse about the original knitter of the entire universe—who is God the Creator of all things! And that’s a great analogy worth sharing, I’d say 🙂

Adding to that…

This “life” fabric we’re writing will indeed formulate into many vibrantly patterned stitches/genres. Some stitches may “felt” dull. Others lacking in recommended tension will inevitably stretch out of shape. Unintentionally slipped stitches may cause entire WIPs (works in progress) to unravel prior to being properly cast off… And it could all spell trouble :-/ Try as we might to write right, I’m glad there’s one master editor—our heavenly Father… the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who knew us before time began and knit us together in our mother’s womb 🙂 He is faithful and just to freely edit all errors for anyone who asks… And it’s by His pen that our names are written in the Book of Life ❤

So let’s trust Him and be patient with one another…
