One uniquely colored thread in a finely woven Persian rug
Touch of supreme quality, line of distinct purpose,
Needed for regal completion
Needed for royal fulfillment of design.
A mother looks at her newborn, a father amazed
Each person special
Each one distinctly unique
From a new individual seed
Precise, specific biochemistry
Most intimate divine touch,
And an eternal breath of God gives life,
Shapes and sizes and colors
Talents and strengths and weaknesses
Common human vulnerabilities
A time and place to be
A sense of eternity
A heart to search for reality
Mind to understand absolute truth
Will to drink and eat freely,
To see and hear the One in purpose above all.
Every fingerprint stands alone
DNA very precise, specific just as the spirit image.
Just as each one will stand alone at the end,
Life in balance before the Holy Throne.
Hunger must be our own
Our personal reality a thirst for truth
To stand alone somehow while joined to many by love;
Eyes that look to heaven
See the common needs of all
To search and reach out and find at last,
All men, all women seeking
Mysteriously joined as one only in Messiah,
Yet, stand alone in the Holy light
Before the gaze of eyes that see both your beginning
And your end,
Your sweet experience of life,
Your sweetest experience of Him.
