Hi, all you kind folks in Readership Land,
This time of the year, many thoughts are on Easter and its meaning. May the following stories help.
Children hunt and then eat their found treasures of plastic colored eggs filled with jelly beans and candy in this day and age.....In the old days the eggs were real, being boiled and dyed many colors. The joy eggs bring to little ones is to be shared.
In my scrampin’ about, I came across this little jelly bean story. Perhaps you can share this little story with a little one as you eat a colored jelly bean. “Happy Easter.”
Little Jelly Bean . Author unknown.
Little jelly beans, Tell a story true, A tale of Fathers love, Just for me and you.
Green is for the waving palms, Blue for the skies above, Brown for the soft earth where, People sat hearing of His love.
A Speckled bean for fish and sand, Red for precious wine, And Black is for the sin He washed, From your soul and mine.
Purple’s for the sadness of, His family and friends, And White is for the Glory of the Day He rose again.
Now you’ve heard the story, You know what each color means, The story of our Father’s love, Told by some jelly beans.
So every morning take a bean, They’re really very yummy, Something for the soul, you see, And something for the tummy.
Now, kind folks here are some words “for all” to ponder this Easter and days to come.
“ Hear, O’ Isrel; The Lord our God the Lord is one !” “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.” Deuteronomy 6: 4-6 NKJV
