SYMBOL OF CHRISTMAS
A SIGNIFICANT SYMBOL OF CHRISTMAS
IS THE SIMPLE CANDY CANE.
IT'S SHAPE IS THE CROOK OF THE SHEPARD,
ONE OF THE FIRST WHO CAME.
THE LIVELY PEPPERMINT FLAVOR IS
THE REGAL GIFT OF SPICE.
THE WHITE IS JESUS' PURITY.
THE RED IS SACRAFICE.
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
HOW MUCH GOD LOVED AND CARED.
AND LIKE HIS CHRISTMAS GIFT TO US,
IT'S MEANT TO BE BROKEN AND SHARED.
WE HAVE WATCHED THIS VIDEO OVER AND OVER AND IT NEVER GETS OLD..SOOO FUNNY !!
So being the O.C.D person that I am we have had our tree up and lit, presents wrapped and shopping done since Thanksgiving Day (Crazy, I know). I love to "torture" my kids and make them stare at their presents for at least a full month before they can open them :)
It's all about the anticipation !!
