The Jelly Bean Prayer
Red 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 that were made
White is for the grace He gave,
Purple is for the hour of sorrow,
Pink is for the new tomorrow.

Footprints in the Sand
One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along
the beach with the LORD.  Across
the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed two sets
of footprints in the sand; one belonged
to him, and the other to the LORD.
When the last scene of his life flashed
before him, he looked back at the
footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along
the path of his life there was
only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened
at the very lowest and
saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and
he questioned the LORD about it.
LORD, you said that once I decided
to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during
the most troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when I needed
you most you would leave me.
The LORD replied, My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.
