 These shells came from Florida.

The sand dollar is a special illustration of the story of Christ.

Notice the five slits, that could represent the wounds of our Savior, in his hands, his feet, and the fifth slit as the sword that pierced his side.

The legend of the Sand Dollar

There’s a fascinating story
That I would like to tell
Of the birth and death of Jesus
Shown 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.
