Life is a Puzzle

You have a puzzle piece and so do I;
We carry it with us until we die.
Each piece has a place in God's overall plan,
Of what happens to us as woman and man.

All the people we meet and the places we go
Give shape to the picture that we have to show.
So we mingle together and search for a piece
To see if it matches and fits with ease.
Sometimes we think that a piece really goes
Only to find that it just gives us woes;
And we hold on to it for quite a while -
Til we're forced to trade it for another style.

If we pick up a piece and it won't seem to fit,
It may be just perfect after waiting a bit.
Then there's the ones we don't even touch
Because we believe they're not worth very much.
Sometimes we're surprised by what we ignore
When we discover it's what we've looked for.
Thus, we go through life and we pick and we choose
The different pieces we want to use.
At times we seem lost at what choices to make
And amaze ourselves at the chances we take.
We don't have the picture on the boxtop lid
To show future results of things that we did.
And if we ask questions of God's grand design,
'Am I in your puzzle or are you in mine?'
We learn all of these pieces will merge into one
Completing the puzzle when life here is done.

Until Next Time

He hath made every [thing] beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
Ecclesiastics 3:11



  1. This is a really nice poem and so full of wisdom.

    1. Hello Anita, thanks for stopping, hope you have a great day!

  2. Oh my word.... this is absolutely awesome. What a great analogy of life. I am so glad that our pieces of the puzzle fit into each others lives. ain't God good? Ain't God good? Oh yes He is!

    1. Oh yes He is Deb, absolutely and for sure!

  3. Mary, this comes at a perfect time for me since I've just completed two large puzzles! I thought the other day, how one puzzle piece out of place, like a choice in life one would make, can mess up the whole picture. Could I copy this and put it in with one of the puzzles for someone to read in the future?

    1. Absolutely, you can do that. So happy that my post was just in time for you! Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Lil' Red Hen sent me over to read your puzzle poem, which is just wonderful. I have looked around and found so much that inspires your needlework and the vignettes you create. The crystal bowl with puzzle pieces is one to remember.

    1. So glad you stopped by, thanks for the nice comment. Hope you'll come again. I going over to your place for a visit right now.
