Jesus Is The Reason For The Season

...And Joseph too went up from Galilee from the town
of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is
called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and
family of David, to be enrolled with Mary, his
betrothed, who was with child. While they were there,
the time came for her to have her child, and she gave
birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him in
swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because
there was no room for them in the inn.

Now there were shepherds in that region living in the
fields and keeping the night watch over their flock.
The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory
of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck
with great fear. The angel said to them, "Do not be
afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of
great joy that will be for all the people. For today
in the city of David a savior has been born for you
who is Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign for
you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling
clothes and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was
a multitude of heavenly host with the angel, praising
God and saying:

"Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to
those on whom his favor rests." 

The Legend Of The Candy Cane

"It had to be special to be a gift for the King of Kings", thought the humble candy maker from Indiana. Not just any piece of candy would do!

** It had to be hard candy because the Church is built on the Solid Rock and God's promises are a firm foundation.

** It would be formed in the shape of the Good Shepherd's staff.. a "J" that would also stand for the precious name of Jesus.

** It's white stripes would symbolize the virgin birth and sinless nature of Christ.

** It's small red stripes would represent the scourging Jesus suffered on His way to the cross.

** It's large red stripe would remind those with eyes to see and ears to hear of the blood Jesus shed as payment for our sins.

** "It would be a gift of love that would tell His story, the greatest story ever told."

The Legend of the Sand Dollar

There's a pretty little legend that I would like to tell
of the birth and death of Jesus found in this lowly shell.
If you examine closely, You'll see that you find here
four nail holes and a fifth one made by a Roman's spear.
On one side the Easter lily, It's center is the star
that appeared unto the shepherds and led them from afar.
The Christmas poinsettia etched on the other side
reminds us of His birthday our Happy Christmastide.
Now break the center open and here you will release
the five white doves awaiting to spread Good Will and Peace.
This simple little symbol, Christ left for you and me
to help us spread His Gospel Through all eternity.
