Saint Petersburg, FL
I purchased my cross at a women’s retreat at my parish, St. Paul’s. I picked a green one to match my decor & it has a branch/vine on it in fall colors. Psalm 128.3 says you should be a fruitful vine and yes, I did have two wonderful sons with my beloved husband, God rest his soul. I also have twin grandchildren who are fantastic! But I think my cross is reminding me I can be fruitful in other ways than just making babies. I have other talents to share or just use more fully. It’s kind of a gentle reminder to keep growing! I started collecting crosses when I lost my husband 3 years ago to Colon Cancer. This cross will be a treasured addition.
