Hey look, it's a Candy cane BUT what you see isn't everything.
Stripes that are red like the blood shed for us. Jesus shed for each of us; the red stripes depict the stripes on His back as He was beaten.
White is also a picture of how God washes our sins away and makes us white as snow when we trust in Jesus as our Saviour- sinless and pure.
Hardness represents that Jesus is our "Rock"; if we build our lives upon Him, they will be secure and lasting.
Turn it around and a staff you will see- Jesus, our Shepherd, was born for us. The candy cane is shaped like a shepherd's staff; the Bible calls Jesus our Good Shepherd who watches over us and cares for us; we are called the sheep of His pasture.
"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." - John 10:11
"Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture." - Psalm 100:3
Turn it up side down it's a letter "J" for Jesus, our Lord, that is for sure!
"She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because He will save his people from their sins." - Matthew 1:21
How beautiful that this little sweet candy is not just a candy for kids to eat and enjoy, but for everyone who will receive and eat it be reminded the real reason why we celebrate the CHRISTmas. 😊
I’ve come to think of this time of year as ‘wrapping up season’.
Wrapping up – in two senses:
1) the physical sense of the warmest of garbs – yes @JoulesClothing rollneck of dreams I’m looking at you!
and . . .
2) in the sense of closing up shop for the year 🙌🏼
There’s something downright peaceful about knowing that you’re inching that little bit closer to your final work day.
Do you find the same?
Over on TheElginAvenue.com I’m sharing a few of my favourite cosy items from Joules to get a head start on your hygge vibes for the season, and a few of the ways I’m winding down towards the end of the year.
Here’s to being oh-so-close to the end of work for 2017! . . . click the site link in my bio to have a read! #TheElginAvenue#MonicaBeatrice#JoulesClothing#Joules#Ad

Freezarsi sulla neve ghiacciata.. io non mi sento più le mani e i piedi, lei super imbottita se ne sta lì come se fosse in spiaggia a prendersi il sole. Dice che ama il freddo.. ecco proprio a me che piace il caldo doveva capitare una figlia husky? 🤔🤔🤔
Freeze on the frozen snow .. I no longer feel my hands and feet, she is super padded and she is there as if she were on the beach sunbathing. He says he loves the cold .. that's me who likes the heat should have a husky daughter? 🤔🤔🤔
When they are sweet...it’s the very best. I’ve been trying to talk them into getting Christmas presents for each other. So far, neither think it’s a great idea. We’re missing some holiday spirit. Either that, or we have a full blown #frenemy situation. #farmgals3
Thank you Luigi. Apart from the little fuji monster, this case has been one of my best investments of the year. Strong construction and genuine leather. I am always trying to support small businesses and gain a lifelong product in exchange. Less clutter, more quality. Beautiful work @luigi.crescenzi!
I annonssamarbete med @smartphotose - It’s getting closer to Christmas and we are really trying to be mindful when buying Christmas gifts. I want this Christmas to be about meaningful conversations, good food, fresh air and happy kids. In collaboration with @smartphotose I have been given joyful task to show what we can do with our photos. I have just ordered a bunch of photos that I liked and together with the kids with have made small gifts to the family. We decided to make personal matchsticks boxes, because there is always a candle that wants to be lit. We also decided to frame a few photos in beautiful glass frames, my mother has a big wall of photos in their house and they love to get some new pictures of the kids every year. We also made some photo ornaments that we will hang in our tree once its up, they are so easy to make. Every year we add a few ornaments and its so fun to see how much they have grown since last year. We are also planning on giving the kids cousins some tickets for the movies so we decided to make our own gift cards. We are also sending away a few personal Christmas cards and I always love a DIY Christmas card, and its so fun to make them together with the kids. As long as you have some beautiful photos in your phone or laptop, make sure to order a few, it is always such joy to print photos, because it gives more meaning and it will always be a thoughtful gift. For your last minute gifts, a last minute gift card, an ornament for the christmas tree, or just for you to enjoy, anything is possible!
