Be a Vessel God can Use; Accept how God made you; Be Emptied of Self;
Allow God to cleanse you; Be Filled with the Spirit; And Pour out your life as God Directs.
These words reflect the symbols that wove the fabric of tapestry, our dearest beloved wove each day Heidi Metzger graced our lives. She loved with the depth and caring that sustained all that knew her. Never were her hands idle, regardless of her health, or situation, she was always thinking of ways to share her love, knit a heart that might need mending by a hug, a warm smile, or gentle word of comfort. Her life was about serving God and loving others.
Heidi was about family, community and church. She was happiest when standing behind a hot stove making a dessert to surprise her family. Everyone knew she would always be there with a helping hand. They could count on her many talents to be willingly used to glorify the Lord. She served the Lord with all her might till God called her home and said, “Well done my child, your race has been won!”
