Joseph and Ashley
We received the cross from a couple that we feel God has put in our lives to mentor us through the beginning stages of our marriage. This couple, “the Ratcliffes” have model such a beautiful, transparent and real relationship demonstating what a biblical marriage is all about! “It’s not perfect” would be the first words out of their mouth, quickly accompanied with “you always need to be working in your marriage”. We love them! What we love about the cross is it is Joseph’s favorite color! It also has a heart of the two faces molded together as one sweet heart! We loved the verses in Genesis 2:18-23 where God says it is not good for Adam to be alone then HE gives him the task of naming the animals where he also see that nothing resembles or matches him. Then God puts him to sleep creates Eve from his side and when Adam wakes up he sees his match his other half, his WOman! It is as if this cross depicts the very nature of our relationship, how God said to each of us it is not good for us to be alone and then brought us together and we completely identify with each other completely our halves. Thank you for this reminder that it is the Lord that brought us together unifying us. HE is the thing that holds us together.
