LEGEND OF THE SAND DOLLAR



Thereís 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,
youíll see that you find here,
four nail holes and a fifth one,
made by a Romanís 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.
