Cross #15.390

New Port Richey, FL

At the end of our women’s retreat at Hope United Methodist Church, I was given this cross in thanks for the work I have done for our “Women of Hope” ministry and for the retreat. It was given to me by my co-leader. I have had some health difficulties last year and have been working on some very time-consuming work at church, in addition to facilitating a womens’ Bible study. The past few months have been stressful. I am getting ready to take an extended trip, which will allow my husband and I to take a needed break. It is a time to recharge and reflect. Knowing that others at my church will take on my responsibilities while away is a blessing that I am grateful for. “Each of us will be a blessing to the other”. So blessedly true!
