The Jelly Bean Story~

Have you heard the story of the jelly beans?

Little jelly beans
Tell a story true.
A tale of our Father's love
That's just for me and you.

GREEN is for the new spring grass.
YELLOW is for the sun above.
BROWN is for the soft earth where
People sat hearing of HIS love.

PURPLE'S for the robe he wore,
RED is for that precious blood~He shed.
BLACK is for the sins He washed
From your soul and mine.

BLUE'S for the sadness of
HIS friends and family,
WHITE is for the glory of the Day
HE rose for you and me.

Now that you've heard the story
You know what each color means.
The story of our Father's love
As told by jelly beans.

So when you see jelly beans on this Easter season,
stop and remember,

Jesus Arose!

Yes I have posted on my web site, and it is very good how each one represents certain things about Christ, mine photo is each individual bean instead of the whole group of them. Good lesson this is. Hugs Barbara

HI Carrie,
What a "pretty" and "colorful" analogy. I had never heard that...do you mind if I pass it on? I would like to share it. Spring is such an uplifting time....and the Easter season is such a special one. Although we remember Christ's sacrifice daily, it's a beautiful time to share it even more.

The first time I heard the "color story" I was 8 and the illustration was done with a box of kindergarten crayons...the great big ones, remember? I walked to Mrs. Pebbly's after school for her Bible class and she taught with a flannel graph. Loved it then, love it still, Thank you Jesus!
PS Jelly Beans are better than crayons...edible!

This is what we did for our playgroup Easter party on Tuesday. We had an egg hunt then the kids got to fill an egg carton with eggs filled with jelly beans and was told this story.
