Quote from Dayspring about a calendar: use portion in a tapestry piece?
“powerful message of hope, this magnetic calendar board brings inspiration and a heart-warming touch of vintage inside or outside your home! It’s a wonderful reminder that God is lovingly ‘quilting’ the pieces of our lives, imparting beauty, joy and praise for a display of His glory and splendor.” Dayspring
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Ecclesiastes 3:11

My Dear Daughter (or Son),
Please hear my heart speaking to your heart. In case you think I have forgotten you, I surely have not. I could never leave you alone or forget about you; it would never fit into my character of pure love. Before you were ever conceived, I knew you. I have known about all of your days since your birth and I love every inch of you. [texts?]
You are suffering now, and I am suffering right along with you. In times of deep distress I am even closer to you than you can possibly imagine. I know suffering is hard to bear, but trust me when I say that some pain is necessary. I know it is hard to comprehend with a heart full of grief, but as you are able to grasp the bigger picture, you will begin to understand that trials bring you closer to me. The “gold” of your character, once heated in the fires of difficulty, will come forth gleaming, solid, and pure.
The enemy will always be lurking about, watching and waiting for an opportunity to distract you. He may succeed for a time, but when you return to me, you will be able to strengthen my other children with truth and hope (Luke 22:32).
IS THERE MORE TO THE LETTER?
God finished reviewing what he had written before folding the letter and tucking it into an envelope with your name on it, and sealed it before handing it to Jesus to put into the heavenly airmail box.
God returned to the tapestry he had been working on. It already was a beauty. Sorrows and trials were prevalent in her life and it showed in the delicate, golden stitches God was making. He loved working on his/her tapestry, and prayed over each [ ]while humming a little chorus, “For God so loved the world He gave His only Son, to die on Calvary from sin to set you free. Some day He’s coming back what glory that will be! Wonderful His love to me.”
Jesus took the letter and paused by his Father’s chair to take a closer look at the tapestry. God looked up from his work, smiled, and spoke softly, as if in deep thought, “You know Son, I am so glad you agreed to go to Planet Earth to show our people how much we love them. Just think. If you had not followed through with the plan to save the human race, I would not be sitting here working on a special tapestry for my favorite daughter.”
God winked at his Son. Jesus chuckled and patted his Dad on the shoulder. They exchanged a knowing smile . . . for each one of God’s kids is his favorite.
But he knows every detail of what is happening to me; and when he has examined me, he will pronounce me completely innocent—as pure as solid gold! Job 23:10
