The Christmas Candy Cane

Posted by Hannah at 10:58 AM

I found this story about the Christmas Candy Cane, and I wanted to share it. I'm don't have a gift of fancy prayers, but I wanted each and everyone to know that you will be in my heart and prayers this holiday season! God will be with you, and remember always his love for you will never end! He can gave us this wonderful gift of Jesus, and I know this can be a time of stress for alot of us....keep that in your heart in the upcoming days. He loves all the broken, abused and soon to be restored men, women and children he has created........and that means all of us!

Dear Lord THANK YOU for being in our lifes, and know that we are doing the best we can at times. WE praise you for giving us that sense of love we need in our hearts knowing that you will always be there! Thank you for that wonderful gift of Jesus that you sent down to us, so that we may be able to join you when the times comes.

Lord I ask that you be with the readers of this blog, and also those out there that are also broken by abuse. I pray for the abusers, and ask that their brokeness be healed and that their rage is put away from them. They are the ones that need you most Dear God, and please find someone to help them find you! I prayer for the victims and children during this holiday season Lord! It can be a time of great stress and hurt at times. Please place your hedge of protection around them, and allow them to keep the purpose of this holiday in their hearts and souls!

Thank you Lord for the gift of being able to reach out to people, and it is my hope that it makes them feel less alone, isolated, and that someone besides you here on earth hears them. Be with all of us in the upcoming year so that we do your will that you want from us! Help us find that path of light, and help us stay on that path.

God you are a Lord of healing, and I ask that a sense of love, binding up, and safest surrounds the people here and beyond. Please be with us all, and keep us safe. Heal us from our wounds, broken hearts, and tear down our walls of fear. Thank you for being us in our time of need, and know that we know you as the AWESOME God we are thankful to have found! Please continue to be in the hearts, minds and souls of everyone during this season! Give us the tools to continue, and brings others to you so they know what a gift you are offering!

Lord be with us all during this holiday, and THANK YOU for all that you do!

In Jesus name we pray! Amen!




The Christmas Candy Cane was first made by a Candy Maker in Indiana.
He incorporated several symbols for the birth, ministry, and death
of Jesus Christ.

He began with a stick of pure white, hard candy. White to symbolize
the Virgin Birth and the sinless nature of Jesus, and hard to
symbolize the Solid Rock, the foundation of the Church, and firmness
of the promises of God.


The Candy Maker made the candy in the form of a "J" to represent the
precious name of Jesus, who came to earth as our Savior. It could
also represent the staff of the "Good Shepherd" with which He reaches
down into the ditches of the world to lift out the fallen lambs who,
like all sheep, have gone astray.

Next the Candy Maker stained it with red stripes of the scourging
Jesus received by which we are healed. The large red stripe was for
the blood shed by Christ on the cross so that we could have the
promise of eternal life.

Sadly, the candy became a meaningless decoration seen at Christmas
time. But the meaning is still there for those who "have eyes to see
and ears to hear".
