Sweet Ribbons of Life By Brenda Drake

  Psalms 40:5
Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done, And Your thoughts toward us; There is none to compare with You. If I would declare and speak of them, They would be too numerous to count.

           I have no doubt God’s love drew me to Him.  He picked me up and turned me around, and set my feet on solid ground.  Every path of my life in some way worked to the realization He is the true way of life.  I found the truth and He set me free to be a part of His Body, His Church, and His beautiful Bride.

Sweet Ribbons of Life

Sweet ribbons of life, weaves through the years;
Joining together the events of laughter and tears.
High times and low times with expert hand,
Forms the lovely creation as the Father plans.
His love and care is evident when looking back.
Answered prayers keep you on track.
Sweet council when heeded cause the beauty to appear
Where there seemed confusion; it disappears.
As you observe the pretty creation man makes;
His ribbon candy is fragile and easily breaks.
But God’s creation is sweeter, and more durable by far
He loves and will use you wherever you are.
Sweet ribbons of life weave through the land;
Joining each other in each loving strand.
Each life a color unique with no designs the same.
Joined together as one under One name.
A beautiful temple that forever stands true;
With the sweetness of Jesus formed in and through you.

Ephesians 4:15-16
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Lord, make me new
Allow my life to glorify You.
