Be As Threads Of Gold

Zack Slaughter 1953 (Oxford, NC)

May your and my actions and deeds be as'threads of gold' weaved into others garments and apparel -

Quite to stitch and sew it even into our speech and conversation with folk and people everywhere we go and trod;

Indeed - s threads that lengthen into eternity to glorify our Father in heaven such begin upon each day's arrival.

    Such an interesting poem, I must comment again ! Remember the phrase, hanging on by a thread ? In our lifetime, we will have many moments of hanging on ! But if you have a golden thread, God will see us through for another day !

    Thankyou for your very meaningful poem about our lives with stitches of gold ! Life is not on automatic, life is hand made, crafting our lives with God's material is the real winner ! Life is fragile Handle with prayer..
