Christmas Cranberries

Do you make your own cranberry sauce every year? It’s simple to follow the recipe on the package of fresh berries. Make lots because there are so many ways to use it.

Put a layer cranberry sauce in a parfait dish with pudding or ice cream. Add it to a sandwich or top a pancake. Stir it into hot cereal or yogurt. Add whole berries to apple pie filling, or toss a handful into muffin recipes.

These are all good ideas, but cranberry’s bitter flavor and deep crimson color remind us that Christ was born at Christmas, but he died and rose from the dead for us at Easter…so that we might have eternal life.

For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. (John 3:16, AMP)

Prayer – Father God, thank you for cranberries and thank you for the Christ, who lived and died and lived again, on our behalf. Amen
