I received this cross from a dear friend during a time I was dealing with the rejection of my 20 year old daughter, she had met a guy and seem to turn against my husband and I. she was quickly engaged and rejected our house rules and moved out. she did not want any of our help for the wedding nor did she want any type of relationship. I was so hurt by my daughters rejection, she made me feel that it was my fault. and threw the support of my husband and my relationship with Jesus. I have come to realize that she was just rejecting authority and needed someone to blame for her own sin. I will say that it still hurts having the rejection but Knowing that my heavenly father will never reject me. Give me a peace that overcomes the hurt.
