Candy Canes

Hello everyone. We've probably all heard the story of the candy cane so I'm not going to regale you with that story today. However, the other evening Hubby and I went to a Living Nativity Tour and they were giving out candy canes with this little poem attached. I thought I would share it with you.

Jesus Gentle Shepherd,
this cane of red and white
proclaims the sweet love story
born on Christmas night.
This candy cane when turned around
begins Your name of Love
and now becomes a symbol
of peace proclaimed above.

The lively peppermint flavour
is the regal gift of spice.
The white is for Your purity
and the red Your sacrifice.
And so this cane reminds us
of just how much You care
and like Your Christmas gift to us
it's meant for all to share!

Have a blessed day everyone! ~ Sandi
