my sand dollar

The Legend of the Sand Dollar

There’s a lovely little legend
that I would like to tell,
of the birth and death of Jesus,
found in this lowly shell.

If you examine closely,
you’ll see that you find here,
four nail holes and a fifth one,
made by a Roman’s spear.

On one side the Easter lily,
its center is the star,
that appeared unto the shepherds
and led them from afar.

The Christmas Poinsettia
etched on the other side,
reminds us of His birthday,
our happy Christmastide.

Now break the center open,
and here you will release,
the five white doves awaiting,
to spread Good Will and Peace.

This simple little symbol,
Christ left for you and me,
to help us spread His Gospel,
through all Eternity.

  1. Hey Sweetheart,

    I’ve missed you too! Just when I had the chance to return to blog world, the NOG Siesta Bible Study was introduced and so when I’m online, I’m e-mailing or blogging with that!

    I would love to catch up on life with you. I would so love to just have a week where I get up early and am able to blog, read and comment on friends blogs, answer e-mail and look at the writing and articles on all of my favorite websites…5 days and not feel any guilt about “wasting time”.

    I love your Sand Dollar reflection and all about you. It helps make us even more real to other women who join us in this walk.

    Praying for you and your family!
    p.s. I hope to actually e-mail you soon and you can e-mail me back before summer’s over 🙂 Too much on my plate and I know yours as well! I need to get organized and prioritized!

  2. Thanks for sharing the “Legend of the Sand Dollar”. I believe that creation reflects the Creator and His glory if we will just look. 🙂

  3. I was very touched when you used the sand dollar – my Mom used to do shell box frame pics. The fav. she made me was the sand dollar – I’ve been meaning to tell you for weeks!Sending love your way. J
