I looked at my new project in beads,
and thought about what's inside,
for how its made dictates how it looks,
what lies underneath just canít hide.
I've made this project many times before,
and if the thread's too tight,
the result is rigid and stiff to the touch,
and the way it feels is just not right
But if I hold the thread more gently,
letting it guide the beads into place,
the bead-fabric is lovely and supple to see,
like a life that is full of grace.
It reminds me so of how God is with me,
He now is the center of all I do,
the thread of His love guides me on my path,
because of Him, I am so blessed to have you!
The thread is there, a reminder to me,
every moment I can feel God's touch,
and the fabric of our love is lovely and soft,
because of Him, I can love you so very much!
We hold each other's hearts with such care,
tenderness in all we say and do,
and the fabric of our life is a wonder to me,
for it expresses how very much I LOVE YOU!!
