Day 149 - Box of Crayons


Every time I see a box of Crayons I always think of the Crayon Box song I sang in Sunday School when I was a kid. The chorus goes like this:

 Red is the color of the blood that He shed,
Brown is for the crown of thorns they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! In Heaven He does dwell;
And yellow is for the Christian who's afraid to tell.

Remember you have through Monday night at midnight (PDT) to get your submissions in for the Favorite Photo of the Week Contest.

Always fun to get a new box of crayons with the points all sharp and new...a highlight of returning to school each year as a child. Nice closeup that brought back memories.
