The Bible As a Basis for Good Mental Health
Scraps and strips of colored cloth
In every shade and hue
Display the pieces of my life
Attached for all to view.
The times that were so sad and dark,
I thought I couldn't get through
Are joined right next to brighter days,
The yellow with the blue.
And one by one, each piece was cut
So carefully and true
Sewn tight with gentle threads of hope
So beautiful to view!
And piece by piece, together bound
Some chosen and some given.
God sends the threads of love and hope,
Patchwork designed in Heaven.
