After sharing about God’s blessing of Ink for my Candy Cane Messages, two people told me that they had experienced similar after their Printer had shown there was no Ink so I went back to my Printer and copied another 2 pages of the Candy Cane Messages and they printed OK but like before when I tried to print other Colored Pictures they were discolored and the black was very light, so I tried The Candy Cane messages again and they were OK and this happened 5 times, the only other printing that copied OK was my Phone Number and E-mail Address that I needed for my Christmas Cards with them being new to most of my friends and Contacts and I don’t think I had done enough copies at the Library, so I was very Thankful for them, although after two copies they wouldn’t Print with Colour but the Candy Cane Messages did …… God’s Ink is Amazing to say the least.
I have been blessed again by Our Awesome Abba Father providing the Ink I needed, I still can’t believe it happened again but it did, this time it was not for my Poetry, (see link below of how God blessed me in 2006) but it was for something very special to me.
I have a Ministry outreach at Christmas that gives me a great deal of Joy each year, I have been using the Candy Cane message that I received by e-mail and my own Christmas Blessing (see below) as a way of sharing The Gospel. I buy about 80 Candy Canes than I attach the messages with a ribbon after laminating them and I give them to those I have had contact with over the year, including Staff at my Supermarket, Chemist, Doctors and Friends and my Funday School Children but the majority I put in Letter Boxes and yes I’m sure some don’t read them but even if just one person does, it’s worth it, good seeds are being planted.
THE CANDY CANE
BEING A CANDY- MAKER HE DECIDED TO USE HIS TALENTS TO HONOUR JESUS, SO HE DESIGNED THE FIRST CANDY CANE.
WHEN THE CANDY CANE IS HELD UPRIGHT IT IS THE SHAPE OF A SHEPHERD’S STAFF WHICH THE SHEPHERD USES AS HE WATCHES OVER HIS SHEEP AND IS A SYMBOL OF LOVING CHRISTIAN SERVICE AND CARE.
JESUS CHRIST IS OUR SHEPHERD. WHEN THE CANDY CANE IS TURNED UPSIDE DOWN, IT THAN BECOMES THE LETTER ‘J’ FOR JESUS THE JOY OF LIVING AND BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.
JESUS WAS BEATEN AND STRIPES WERE PUT UPON HIS BACK WHEN HE WAS CRUCIFIED IN PAYMENT OF OUR SINS. SO THE CANDY CANE WAS MADE WITH RED AND WHITE STRIPES TO SHOW THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST WASHES AWAY OUR SINS AND MAKES US PURE AND WHITE AS SNOW .
ONE BOLD STRIPE REPRESENTS ONE GOD WHO IS THE FATHER OF US ALL. THE THREE FINE STRIPES REPRESENT THE GODHEAD OR THE TRINITY AS CALLED TODAY WHICH IS ONE GOD REVEALED TO US IN THREE WAYS, THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT,
GOD IN HIS COMPLETENESS. THE CANDY CANE IS MADE BREAKABLE AND CAN BE RECEIVED AS A GIFT, THE SAME AS WE CAN RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST WHO IS GOD’S WONDROUS GIFT OF LOVE TO ALL OF US.
HE GREATLY LOVES YOU AND ME AND HE DIED TO SET US FREE.
I was able to buy most of the Candy Canes for this year at a very low cost because the Shop was closing down, so I brought a lot more boxes and as I had already brought some for Funday School I had well over a 150 Candy Canes but than discovered I had very little Ink left, both lights were showing empty on my Printer and I knew I wouldn’t get the Ink in time from my Supplier to do all that was needed to get the Candy Canes ready for delivery but than I reasoned I could Photocopy the messages at the Library as I had with other needed messages, although it would be expensive for that amount but it was worth it.
I decided to try the Printer again first, perhaps it would print a few pages but amazingly it just kept printing until I had enough Candy Cane Messages and Christmas Blessings for all the Candy Canes and than there was no more of God’s Ink left.
They say that God’s work done in His way never lacks His supply, how True that is.
Christmas Blessings – Anne.
