The Pretzel



In 610 AD, in northern Italy a monk wanted to make a treat for kids to memorize their Bible verses and prayers. He took leftover bread dough and made stripes and twisted them into the shape of a person praying. In those days when people prayed they took their arms and crossed them over on opposite sides and put them on their chests. Then the monk gave the treat to kids as a reward when they memorized their Bible verses and prayers. They were also used to help the children understand the trinity of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. As the three holes represented the Christian Trinity. The monk called it a Pretiola. Which means little reward in Latin. From there it is transformed into the Italian word Brachiola, which means little arms.

Knock At The Door


" Knock At Your Door! "


If Jesus Knocked at your door today!
would you let Him In, or turn Him away?
What if He came in the form of a Beggar, or a Stray
or someone that had lost their way?
Would your door be open to Him, that day?
Would you let Him in, or turn Him away?
Do we Know what hour He will come our way?
I pray I'll be ready that hour, that day.
I hope I won't be too busy, and turn Him away,
What if Jesus knocked at your door today?
How would you greet Him, what would you say?
Remember He may come as a Beggar,
a Stray, or a Neighbor that day.
Would you greet Him with a smile on your face?
Would your heart be full of grace?
What if He was hungry or thirsty that day?
Would you invite Him in or would you turn Him away?
Would we truly know Jesus if He came our way?
How would we really treat Him on that hour, that day?
What if Jesus Knocked at your door today?
Let us pray we'll be ready if He comes our way.

The Candy Cane Story



The Candy Cane Poem About 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 are pure!
"J" is for Jesus my Lord, That's for sure!
Turn it around, And a staff you will see,
Jesus my shepherd, Who was born for me.
