Inside: A simple reminder of our Lord's love can be seen in each sand dollar's story. It tells us of Jesus' life here on earth right through His ascent into glory. Etched onto one side of the fragile shell a poinsettia's blossom you'll see...A symbol of Christmas that heralds the joy of our dear Savior's nativity. A lily you'll find on the opposite side, Easter's emblem of Christ's resurrection, a star at its center still pointing the way for those seeking to know God's direction. Pierced like our Savior, the shell has five clefts to remind us of Christ's sacrifice. Four wounds from the nails and one from a spear... through Christ's wounds we've regained paradise. And there's one more gift that the sand dollar holds: five small doves waiting for sweet release. Once the shell's opened, they're captives no more...just like us, once we know God's true peace. So, may we recall the sand dollar's tale in this season of glad celebration, and may Jesus' gift of life for us all fill our hearts with endless adoration.
May this season of celebration draw you ever closer to God and those you love. Merry Christmas
