You will need to cut a square piece of material & netting. Easter colors. Take a rock & place it in the middle of material & use ribbon to tie around the rock to hold it in place. Print card & laminate with clear shelf paper. Attach it to the rock.
"This is to serve as a reminder
of the true meaning of Easter.
Jesus arose 3 days after He died, after He was crucified.
He fulfilled God's plan for salvation free,
& he did it all for you & me.
A small, fancy rock on a string:
This little rock is shining
'cause it knows it soon will be
tucked in the pocket of a friend
who means the world to me.
Keep this rock close to you,
As my very special gift,
For it's guaranteed to cheer you,
Any time you need a lift.
a little smile to carry with you,
no matter where you go ---
a reminder to smile at others,
as we need them so.
Take time to smell the roses,
& take time to smile, too.
You have no idea of the miracles
A little smile can do.
be happy & give a happy stone,
to everyone for whom you care.
It will bring them your happiness
When carried along everywhere.
For it will take upon your spirit
Slowly absorbing it into the stone.
& when the smile fades away,
it leaves the reciever a happy tone.
this stone is filled with happiness
& carrying it will bring joy, too.
Then when its smile fades away,
The happy spirits transfers to you!
Roll Away the Stone
Suffering & spent, broken & bent,
A crucified King with no throne,
His burial grave was a stone-sealed cave
But He rolled away the stone.
At that hour, He unleased a power
The greatest the world has known,
And we were freed by His wondrous deed
When He rolled away the stone.
If heavy cares weigh you down in despair,
Remember you're not alone.
For He can shoulder each burden or boulder
He'll roll away the stone.
In the darkest night, we can see the light
Our glorified Savior shone.
From struggle & strife, we rise to a new life
When we roll away the stone.

I'm a weather-wise rock.
If I'm moving ,it's windy.
If I'm white, it's snowing.
If I'm icy, it's sleeting.
If I'm bouncing, it's hailing.
If I'm hot & dry, it's sunny.
If you can't see me, it's foggy.
If I'm gone, you've been ripped off!
a worry stone
to ease your heart.
Rub it & your worries
Are sure to depart.

It's difficult to be positive, when things are going bad.
You want to be happy, when all you feel is sad.
