Puzzle Pieces


Some jigsaw puzzles have more colors, more pieces, more variations in shapes. Finding the straight lines which hint at outer edges is a good way to get started.


Give me a frame,
O Divine Architect.

I need some lines
to mark the edges
of this day.

I want to frame the colors
and shape of my day,
my very life,
according to your will.

Yet life poses puzzle pieces
that do not seem to belong
in my box.
Work with me,
play with me,
help me fit it all together.

Some day,
I will see the same picture
that you already know.
I trust your vision.


I will carry a puzzle piece with me today. It will remind me to search for a good fit no matter what the day’s experiences bring.
