Jelly Bean Prayer

brach's assorted jelly eggs

Jelly Bean Prayer
Red is for the blood He gave,
Green is for the grass He made,
Yellow is for the sun so bright,
Orange is for the edge of night.

Black is for the Sin we made
White is for the Grace He Gave
Purple is for the hour of sorrow,
Pink is for the new tomorrow.

A bag full of Jelly Beans...Colorful and sweet!
It’s a Prayer...It's a promise…
It's a yummy Easter Treat!

Last year I made bags of jelly beans with this little poem in it to pass out in Charlotte’s Preschool class.  It is a great way to teach children the Gospel message in a fun and creative way.  You will be surprised at how quickly they actually can memorize it too! 

Enjoy your Jelly Beans!

  7. This is great! I think I'll link to this next week. I'm collecting tons of ways to celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I am blogging every day for 365 days! I have definitely had a few "catch up" posts, but I've really enjoyed the challenge! :) Thank you for the picture compliment!

    It's been a while since I've seen this poem. It's great!

  9. Okay this is a low maintenance one. I think I can actually do it! Thanks for sharing.


Please share... I love to hear from readers!
