Good morning, Father.
Children are an amazing gift from You.
A Legend of the Candy Cane
August was a candy maker in Cologne, Germany. And one Christmas Eve, many, many years ago, he brought a special gift to the grand cathedral in Cologne. It was the very first candy cane. August had made it himself.
“I gave it the shape of the letter ‘J,’ the first letter of Jesus’ name,” August told the king. “And, as you can see, when I turn it upside down, it becomes a shepherd’s staff. Jesus, you know, is our Good Shepherd. It is made of pure, white peppermint to remind us that Jesus is pure–the Son of God! But it is also striped with red. That reminds us of the blood Jesus shed for you and me.”
“Today in the city of David a Savior was born for you, who is the Messiah, the Lord.”
(Luke 2:11, CSB)
In the name of Jesus, The Babe,
