A BIRTHDAY CAKE FOR JESUS
We started this tradition in our family many years ago. Now, I don't make the cake, but our daughter does. Tomorrow we will take it to our friend's to celebrate the joy of Christmas.
1. Make it round --- like the never-ending circle, so is His love for all of us.
2.Make it chocolate --- like the darkness our sins brings to us and others.
3.Make it covered with white frosting --- like His purity covering our weakness.
4.Top it with a yellow star and put an angel --- bearer of the first glad tidings.
5.Put twelve red candles on top --- like the twelve months of the year that Christ is our light, add red for the blood He willingly shed for us.
6.Encircle this loving cake with evergreens ---the symbol of everlasting life.
“And she gave birth to her first – born son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger because there was no room for them in the inn. And in the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields, and keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. And the angel said to them, Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which shall be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Luke 2: 7-11
