Merry Monday #225 {Candy Canes!}

Of all holiday's Christmas and New Year's are my favorites and of the seasons, Autumn and Winter.
I have always loved this time of the year, you see your families, you remind yourself of the ones who can not be with you or who have past on. Old memories come alive for me this time of year.
I and my brothers having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding with our friends and when they said the creek was frozen...ice skating! Oh those were the days.

 Candy canes, we would always put them on the tree to be reminded of God and his son 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!
