Sweet Symbol

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.

Merry Christmas to you all! ♥♥♥

  2. I love this! I never and would have never thought of the candy cane like that. I have been thinking about the items used at Christmas and their significance. Now its a lesson to share.
