Frayed edges

So I will very gladly spend for you everything I have and expend myself as well. If I love you more, will you love me less?  Cor. 12:15 (NIV 2011)

We’ve used quilts my grandmother made us so much the patches have worn off and the edging is frayed. Preserving them may have increased their monetary value, but then they would not serve and comfort us. Wrapping up in one of those quilts is like a hug from Mimi for grandchildren who never knew her.

Lord,  let me be used up, worn out, frayed, ripped, and patched up for Your kingdom.
