Missing pieces

Missing pieces

To the puzzle of my life

Fall into place

Not all at once

Bur as I keep moving forward

Along the path

Laid out for me

Round the bend

The fog clears

Answers come.

The worse thing I can do

Is to stop moving

That is when

The fog gets thicker

The voices from the darkness

Grow louder

The vines begin to tangle my feet.

As I start to move again

Towards the light

Hope arises in my heart

Joy springs into a song

I laugh out loud

With each purposeful step

Here comes another piece

To the mystery of my life!

  2. I love this Julie. I have often thought that I was a missing puzzle piece, in the wrong puzzle – the missing piece from another one. This poem so beautifully captures the picture of God putting puzzle pieces together as we walk towards light…Thank you for this reflection.
