I was looking at it and thinking about the time it took to plan it, gather supplies, and make it. I pictured a man and grandson working together and spending time doing something to bless someone else.
As is often the case with me, I ended up in an ocean of thoughts.
I thought of how a cross reaches me from deep within even though what happened on the cross at Calvary- breaks my heart. The place where Jesus died for me is a forever symbol of sacrificial love.
I decided to use this hand-made gift as a reminder of what is most important. In the habits and heart dealings of my day, may I:
* See the cross and know my bad mood has no power to rule my day.
* Look at the cross and realize I have the energy I need to make healthy decisions whether I feel like it or not.
* View this cross and rest in the blessing that no evil weapon or word formed against me shall prosper but I everything I do in the Name of Jesus shall prosper!
* Glance at the cross and remember the love my Father had for me.
What do you think of when you see a cross?
