I fell in love with this poem I found on a coloring sheet that Sweet Pea and Little Man did at church. What a great way to share the birth of Jesus with little children!
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!
