At our Community Meal the other night one of our guests handed me a Candy Cane and this little poem that I thought was kind of nice.

The Candy Cane
a Gift of Love

It had to be special to be a gift
for the King of Kings, thought
the humble candy maker.

No just any piece of candy
would do it. It had to be hard
candy because the church is
built on solid rock and God’s
promises are a firm foundation.

It would be formed in the shape
of the Good Shepherd’s staff. A
“J” that would also stand for the
precious name of Jesus.

But it had to say more. White
stripes would symbolize the
virgin birth and the sinless
nature of Christ.

Three small red stripes would
represent the scourging Jesus
suffered on His way
to the cross.

One large red stripe would
remind those of the blood of Jesus
shed as payment
for our sins.

It would be a gift of love that
would tell his story – the
greatest story ever told!
