With a Grateful Heart Design Challenge Entry #2

Here is the second entry for our October Design Challenge:

Take-out or Travel Cup Cozy and Coasters - Christmas set - candy cane stripes by MonCherieCreations

Miriam writes: My item for the Grateful Heart design challenge is a red-and-white striped cup cozy and two "peppermint" coasters. Here's the story of the candy cane to explain why this item represents what I am most grateful for:

A candy maker in Indiana wanted to make a candy that would be a witness, so he made the Christmas Candy Cane. He incorporated several symbols for the birth, ministry, and death of Jesus Christ. He began with a stick of pure white, hard candy: white to symbolize the Virgin Birth and the sinless nature of Jesus, and hard to symbolize the Solid Rock, the Foundation of the Church and firmness of the promises of God. The candy maker made the candy in the form of a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus, who came to earth as our Savior. It could also represent the staff of the Good Shepherd with which He reaches down into the ditches of the world to lift out the fallen lambs who like all sheep have gone astray. Thinking that the candy was somewhat plain, the candy maker stained it with red stripes. He used three small stripes for the blood shed by Christ on the cross. So that we could have the promise of eternal life.


Nicely done! Thanks Miriam!
