This is a wonderfully tasting salad that has a great purpose. I made this salad and poem a long time ago when I was a Sunday school teacher. I wanted a real food alternative to the Jellybean Gospel. My heart is that all the children could participate in this fun activity. It reminds me of the comment that many indigenous people have made when they receive a Bible in their own language. “God sees me.” Did God see them before they received a translation? Of course He did. That is how they have the translation. But there is some special feeling you get when you are included in a celebration that you haven’t been able to participate in before. Someone took the time and effort to insure your inclusion. That is pure love. How do I know this? I have some of those children that have not been able to participate in celebrations. I, as a parent, have done all I can, but sometimes I have not been enough to cover every contingency. I am thankful for those that have made the effort to join me. Here is a recipe for you to participate in a worth while effort to include all (to the best of your abilities).
