The Holding Cross
This is a gift that I just received from a Dear Friend, one for me and one a friend who has a very ill mother and a husband who just had surgery to remove a very scary pair of tumors. I am awestruck by Her generosity and I have been rendered nearly speechless (quite a feat for me!).
Thank you, my Dear Friend, you have touched many hearts and will continue to touch mine as I carry this cross with me!
Something wonderful happens when you put this cross into your hands, I watched it happen over and over. I would show the cross to a friend, telling the story of where it came from, they look at it like, “Huh, now that’s a funny shape…” and their brows come together, a puzzled tilt of the head and then they reach out to take the cross from my hand as I say, “Just hold it for a second, then you’ll see…”
And then when they put it in their hands, their face changes, softens, their shoulders visibly drop and a sort of goofy, happy smile lights up their faces. Yes, their faces, because that very same thing happened with each and every person I showed my cross to.
As soon as they hold the cross, they “get it”. It’s beautiful to watch.
