While Doing My Part

How exciting it is – 
especially with the weakened sight of age – 
when the thread 
finally enters
the eye of the needle!
all too often, 
the shakiness of a weary hand
or the interruption of one 
disinterested in sewing
denies the thread its victory
with sudden movement
or a nudge almost too subtle to notice
and the focus 
through the eye of the needle
is lost. 
Graciously a whisper reveals:
“Try again, dear one,
this block of My quilt 
can only be sewn by you.”
