Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

Walking stick

When we were walking around at the Autumn Glory festival in Oakland the other week people were handing out these beaded walking sticks.  It is used as a way to tell people about Jesus.  The beads all have a meaning.

Yellow or gold represents Heaven. 
Somewhere we all want to go.
 Revelation 21:18
And the building of the wall of it was jasper: and the city was pure gold, unto clear glass.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Black represents Sin.
Our problem - all are sinners.
Romans 3:23
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Red represents the Blood of Christ.
God's Remedy for Sin.
 Romans 5:8
But God commendeth His love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
White - All may be saved.
Our response to what Jesus did for us on the cross.
Romans 10:13
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Green represents growth.
The Lord wants us to experience His peace and joy. 
II Peter 3:18
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I thought it was a nice way of telling others about Jesus. : )

A blessed Sunday to you all.

  7. Hi Happy One! I am coming over from Elizabethd's blog.

    I love this walking stick idea! All those beads to remind us of our good walk with The Lord. I have never seen anything like it...people are so creative, aren't they?

    So glad to meet you today. It's always good to meet happy people! And I love the quote from Groucho Marx on your header. So true :)
    Peace,

  8. Joyce Meyer used the Groucho Marx quote on her show last week.
    I knew about the colors to explain about Jesus and have seen it in booklets, bracelets, and even a purse, but never a walking stick. Love it!
