Jelly Beans


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 sins we made.

WHITE is for the grace He gave.

PURPLE is for His hour of sorrow.

PINK is for a new tomorrow.

A handful of jelly beans,
Colorful and sweet,
Is a prayer ... a promise,
A loved one’s treat!

May the joy of Christ's resurrection
Fill your heart and bless your life.


Jelly Bean Poem

Little jelly beans
Tell a story true;
A tale of Father's love,
Just for me and you.

GREEN is for the waving palms,
YELLOW is for the sun above,
BROWN is 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 iS for the sadness of
HIS family and His friends,
WHITE is for the glory of
The Day HE rose again.

Now that 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.
