Five Minute Friday: Being Knitted

It is Saturday. That Means that I’m a little late this week for Five Minute Friday.
HOWEVER, I AM STILL GOING TO DO IT FRIENDS! First: The Rules:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on::: Race
Ready.Set.GO.

Being Knitted

I pull the needle through again.
Knit, Purl, Knit, Purl.
Over and over, the pattern remains.
It changes by row,
Yet stays the same.
It is the quiet to the “race” in my mind.
To the race of “what if’s” and “when’s”.
It is the focus on,
knit,
purl,
knit,
purl.

Knitting was always intriguing to me.
Something about taking the yarn,
and weaving it into something beautiful.
Soft to the touch,
warm on the skin,
inside the pattern lays the labor of hands,
hands focused on the
knit,
purl,
knit,
purl.

I realized there is something that calms me here,
when I watch this yarn weave itself.
There is a strength to it.
A beauty to it.
A strength and beauty not found in the yarn,
It is found in the weaving of the yarn.
Not in the race of the world,
it is found in the weaving of the yarn.

The race of my mind is quieted.
My focus is caught.

And I wonder,
Am I being woven like this?

Is my Father taking all of my different parts,
and weaving me beautifully?
Into something that has strength,
something that has beauty?

I believe He is.

I believe He is because I can feel it.
The tautness in the growth.
I can feel when I pull.
I can feel when I allow myself to bend.
To pull through.
To cast over.
To slip,
to knit,
purl,
knit,
purl.

I can feel His hands working on my soul.
And I find peace here.
Peace from the race of the world.
The race of my thoughts.

I pull the needle through again.
And find peace in the race,
because I find Him in my soul.
