Thanks 2nd A...my daughter has become the official reminder to anyone who tells us "Happy Hollidays"...she curtly reminds: Merry CHRISTMAS.
God Bless the Faithful Remnant.
Merry Christmas 2ndA. Today is a reminder of the hope we have in our relationship with Jesus Christ.
May your year be filled with the joy of the Lord not only for you, but for all those that you touch.

I meant to post this sooner, but better late than never.
The candy cane has long been a Christmas tradition and was said to have
been the creation of a fine Christian candy maker in Indiana. Its sweet
peppermint taste has been enjoyed by young and old for years.
The candy maker started with pure white candy to symbolize Jesus'
innocence (Heb 4:15) and the holiness of the sinless son of God (1 John
The white also shows the virgin birth of Jesus: "The virgin will be with
child and will give birth to a son..." (Matt 1:23).
He made the candy hard because the church is built on solid rock and
God's promises are a firm foundation (Matt 16:18, 1Thess 5:24), and that
Jesus is like a "rock", strong and dependable. (Psalm 31:3).
Next the candy maker made the candy in the shape of a 'J' for the name
of Jesus who came to earth as our Savior (Matt 1:21, Acts 4:12). When
the candy was turned upside down, it is the shape of the Good Shepherd's
staff (John 10:11). "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down
his life for the sheep".
Finally he stained the candy with red stripes. The color red symbolizes
God's love that sent Jesus to give His life for us on the cross (John 3:16).
The large red stripe is for the blood Jesus shed for our sins on the
cross (Eph 1:7). "In him we have redemption through His blood, the
forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace." The
smaller stripes remind of Jesus' suffering and our redemptive healing
(John 19: 1-30).
So this Christmas when you and your family hang candy canes on your
tree remember that they're not just candy canes. Instead they are a
symbol of the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of our Savior Jesus
