The Candy Cane Story

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord ~ Luke 2:8-11

Did you know that the candy cane can honor Jesus? If the candy is hel
d upright, it is the shape of a shepherd's staff, which the shepherd uses as he watches over his sheep. Jesus is our Shepherd. If the candy is turned upside down, it becomes the letter J for Jesus.

The Bible tells us that by Jesus' stripes we are healed. Jesus was beaten and stripes were put on His back when He was crucified in payment for our sins. So the candy cane was made with red and white stripes to represent the blood of Jesus, which washed away our sins and makes us pure and white as snow. One bold stripe represents one God who is Father of us all. The three fine stripes represent the Trinity: one God, who has revealed Himself to us in three ways: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

As you spend time with family and friends may you reflect on the blessings that have been bestowed upon you. Have a joyful Christmas!

Sharing in the Joy of Christmas

$“Get more bang for your buck”

As some of you may know I have made the commitment to be a wise shopper, a good steward of our money. I am always looking for money saving opportunities and I want to offer money saving opportunities to you as well. Notice the ($) symbol in my weekly updates, these are used to alert of a great deal. Take advantage of them and you will “Get more bang for your buck”.

Merry Christmas!

This is a busy season, a time of thanks and giving. I am thankful for so many things, for this has been a difficult year for our family and all I can think about is JESUS. He is my rock, my hope, my salvation. I want to share Him with the world! And I want to help you share Him with others; when you give this holiday season don’t forget to share the gift of Christ, the message of John 3:16. You can do so on your gift tags, greeting cards and in your conversation. Let everyone know how happy you are with your gift…Jesus!

To use this message on with your gifts this holiday season, copy and paste several to a blank page, then print and adhere them to a gift tag or inside a greeting card (on the left hand side which is usually blank). Use this message as reminder on your voice recordings too!
