Through The Eyes of God

"Life is a tapestry: We are the warp; angels, the weft; God, the weaver. Only the Weaver sees the whole design."
 ~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994

We are all naked when seen through the eyes of God.
He sees through the deception he sees through the facade.

No cunning can truly fool Him with layers of disguise.
He knows when we are sincere He recognizes every lie.

All the pride we acquire grows into a heavy shroud,
that we can barely peer through yet God's eyes can get around.

Each heart an open book that God is the co-author of.
Our own personal road map that can lead us back to His love.

    The words are about life itself and

    When we realize that we need not lie or deceive God, life becomes very simple. The same applies to our fellow mankind.
