The Christmas Candy Cane

Posted this on facebook this morning and thought I'd put it here for you all as well!  It makes you think a bit, that's for sure...especially since you see a lot of candy canes EVERYWHERE you go!!!! 
The true meaning of the candy cane...According to and Indiana candy maker.
*White to symbolize the Virgin Birth and sinless nature of Jesus.
*The hardness of the candy was used to to symbolize the Solid Rock, the Foundation of the Church and firmness of the promises of God.
*the form of a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus, it also represents the staff of the "Good Shepherd"
*red stripes for the blood shed by Christ at the ...cross so we could have the promise of eternal life.
So every time you eat a candy cane this year, think about what they truly stand for...Maybe you have heard this before, maybe you haven't...Maybe you know someone who needs to hear about this. Give someone a candy cane and share them what God has done for them and what Christmas is all about! Re-post if you want! Just wanted to share with you all! ~SDM ♥
