My sister bought it for me for my birthday because I have a cross wall in my home. However, after receiving this cross and learning of it’s purpose, it will have a place on my wall only temporarily. I plan to use this cross as a symbol for my daughter over the next year as she prepares to enlist in the Marines. She is 17 and will turn 18 in the summer of 2014. It is my desire that she changes her mind and I pray Proverbs 16:9 in hopes that God directs her path.
