I picked up this Cross at our church’s Alternative Christmas Market. The ladies were sharing this wonderful ministry with our members, and it was an opportunity for us to make a purchase that reflected the truer meaning of Christmas. I was so touched by this ministry and what it meant. I stood there at this table of crosses and began to weep, knowing how they were made, and realizing how they are meant to be shared! I purchased several……
“HOPE, COURAGE, PASSION, BELIEVE”……..this particular cross I selected for my dear friend Julia. She is a beautiful woman with a heart of gold, who is always trying to make others happy. On the other hand, life keeps throwing curve balls to her, on her own path to happiness. I selected this cross and say a prayer that she finds:
HOPE….in all the little things that make her smile, so she doesn’t feel sad.
COURAGE…..to stand up for herself, against those who try to bring her down.
PASSION…..in life, love and her career, and that she fight for it with all her might.
BELIEVE…..that she deserves to be happy – but it starts within herself – for no one else can do it for you!
This is my prayer for Julia today. May it be so.
