Remember Corrie ten Boom, the Dutch woman who helped more than 800 Jews escape the Nazis during World War II?
When I saw an announcement that the International Ballet Theater is performing “The Weaving,” the dance narrative about the life of this remarkable woman, in Dallas, I was disappointed that I will be out of town.
But I am inspired just thinking about the spirit and courage of ten Boom, the author of The Hiding Place, who described her life as a weaving, a tapestry of good, light threads and difficult, dark threads.
I have a weaving, too, and my weaving is filled with many good days, some wonderful days, some so-so days and a few bad days. I like thinking about all those days weaving together to make my life.
