A Candy Cane, or Five and Something Sticky

I missed candy cane day because of a week long conference. I took a couple pictures with my cell phone, but they were just not what I had in mind. So I decided to wait for today's prompt. I think this does nicely for days 6 and 12.

Who of us can eat a candy cane without getting sticky? Certainly not me. The hubs would say, "I would expect no less." I'm a mess maker. I admit it. Do I care? Nope! I clean up after myself. But I am not fanatical about it like the hubs. Guess that's what 24 years of military service will do for you. Thank you, Armed Forces for training my husband.

Anyway, The candy cane has a very special meaning. Here is a poem that explains it:

Christmas Candy Cane Poem about Jesus

Look at the Candy Cane
What do you see?
Stripes that are red
Like the blood shed for me
White is for my Savior
Who’s sinless and pure!
“J” is for Jesus My Lord, that’s for sure!
Turn it around
And a staff you will see
Jesus my shepherd
Was born for Me!

I am thankful for the message of Jesus in something so simple as the candy cane.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. Be sure to link your blog post.

Peace and Joy,
Susan

Galatians 4:4-5 (NKJV) 4 But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.

I love the poem. I'm a mess maker too, married to a non-mess maker : )

Since they are messy, I just don't eat them. :o) I cannot stand to be sticky. Love the Candy Cane poem. Happy week to you!
