Festive Ribbon

Festive ribbon, sprawling red
Reminder of the blood once shed
By the One who bore our sin;
In manger, saw His life begin.
No wreath adorned nor sparkling tree
Could replicate this gift to me.
And yet, they point me to the Way
Of hope and faith; my guide, I pray.


  1. Martha,
    This is so beautiful! Last year during this time, I thought a bit on how the cradle was overshadowed by the cross. Christmas and Easter--we can't have one without the other.

    Love and blessings!

  2. Yes, Kim, we most certainly need both images in our hearts and minds. Thank you for your kind words!
    Love and blessings!
