Look at a CANDY CANE, what do you see?
Stripes that are RED like the BLOOD shed for me!
WHITE for my Savior, Who’s sinless and pure!
“J” is for JESUS, My Lord that’s for sure!
Turn it around And a staff you will see —
Jesus, my SHEPHERD, Is coming for me!
Candy Cane Story
Jesus Gentle Shepherd,
this cane of red and white
proclaims the sweet love story
born on Christmas night.
This cane, you see, when turned around
begins your name of Love
and now becomes a symbol
of peace proclaimed above.
The lively peppermint flavor
is the regal gift of spice.
The white is 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.
The Candy Cane
A significant symbol of Christmas
Is the simple candy cane.
It’s shape is the crook of the shepherd
One of the first who came.
The lively peppermint flavor is
The regal gift of spice.
The white is Jesus’ purity.
The red is sacrifice.
The narrow stripes are friendship.
And the nearness of his love.
Eternal, sweet compassion
A gift from God above.
The candy cane reminds us all
of how much God cared.
And like His Christmas gift to use
It’s meant to be broken and shared.
A Gift for You
I hope you enjoy this candy cane. As you take it in your hand, turn it upside down and you will see the “J” that reminds us of Jesus who was born on Christmas Day. Turn it back upright and you will see the crook that reminds us that He is the Good Shepherd. The stripes are a reminder that He was beaten for us and the red color reminds us how He shed His blood for us on Calvary. The white tells us how He can wash our sins white as snow. As you taste this candy cane be reminded that fellowship with Jesus is ever so sweet.
