Cross #12.646

St. Augustine, FL

My children and I attended the Bishop ‘s Eucharistic Congress on Saturday March 9, 2013.  My daughter found a cross at the Answered Prayers booth she wanted. And I purchased it for her. So I began browsing the crosses available and found four I wanted to give as gifts. Then I saw one that spoke to me….it had a butterfly and said free… Free is how I finally feel due to strengthening my faith in the last couple of years. I had even discussed it with my pastor recently.  Secondly,the weekend before this event I had to travel north to be with my family to say goodbye to my cousin, Donna, who was 46 and lost her battle with cancer.  She is finally free after two years of fighting…the lime green and Orange on the cross remind me of the light of her smile.  However, being a single mom, I could not afford to buy another.  As we were leaving, Elizabeth gave me this cross as a gift all she asked was a hug.  She had no idea how sad I was that I couldn’t buy it myself but God knew I needed this reminder for myself and the memory of my “Cuz” and sent me an angel.
