Happy Christmas to all

The famous Candy Cane Coffee Cake

I just wanted to say Merry Christmas. I know it’s only the 23rd, but I also know that life is nuts from here on out – Christmas Eve Services, Christmas, services the next morning and then heading to Michigan for a Shaw family Christmas, so if I don’t say it now, it might not get said. So, Merry Christmas! Remember why you’re doing what you’re doing. Jesus is the best present ever given, and the best one you can receive, and I pray that you know Him this year. And if not, what’s stopping you?

Just adding a little piece of Shaw tradition here: The Candy Cane Coffee Cake (which is really a bread, but that’s not so alliterative). We made it every year since before I can remember, and I’ve done it every year with my kids. It makes three, so one to share (the one here), one for Christmas morning, and one for New Year’s Day. And no, it doesn’t taste like candy canes. Just looks like one. I knew you were wondering. 🙂

    Your CCCC looks so yummy! Are you able to share the recipe with your readers, or is it a family secret? 🙂

What a beautiful way to give the Gospel out to the world!!! Has there been an accompiment CD made yet or do you know when one will be made? I would love to buy one. Thank you for this lovely and most powerful song!!! The Lord has blessed you with a beautiful voice and a lovely heart for Him! The Lord bless you as you serve Him!

    I’m so glad you’re liking the song. That is exactly what I wanted to do with it – get the Gospel out there! So thank you. You can find the accompaniment track at my store here http://jennifershaw.com/store/extras. Hope you enjoy using it to share the message yourself. Bless you too! 🙂
