I was anonymously gifted a clinging cross in 2020. The sender wrote an encouraging letter along with scripture reminding me that God was with me and loved me.
It was exactly what I needed in a very low time emotionally. Some days I would just hold the cross and cry. There is nothing magical about it. It was just a tangible symbol of the hope I have in Christ.
Without the Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, I would not have the hope of heaven and eternity, where He will make all things right.
God used this cross, my family, the body of Christ and mainly His word to bring healing after tragedy.
As God began to heal my heart, and I started working again. I had to find a way to offer The Clinging Cross to others.
I was happy to find out The Clinging Cross was also a small business started by a lady named Jane Davis. She had created the cross after spending time with her father in the hospital. Someone had given her a cross to hold on to, but it was uncomfortable in her hand. She made it her mission to create a comfortable cross that fits perfectly in anyone’s hand.
Let me tell you, she DID! I have seen this cross in my daddy’s big rough hands, and my 7 year old’s hand as he sleeps at night. It is the perfect mold!
I have gifted one to a friend as she rode in an ambulance afraid after a stroke, and another friend as she went back for surgery.
I have also gifted one to a grieving family member to cling to the hope of seeing their loved one again.
Whatever the circumstances, we can find hope in the cross of Jesus Christ.
Who do you know that needs a reminder? Maybe it’s you!
We offer the option of gifting just a cross, but if you are looking for a gift that is even more meaningful we offer a substantial sympathy gift box.
The gift box includes your choice of one of our best-selling hymn boards, The Clinging Cross, an Antique Candle Co. candle, and a Comfort and Care Scripture Card Collection.
I pray these faith focused gifts remind the receiver they are so loved and cherished in the eyes of God.
For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with Him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. - 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11
