I decided on a name for the crosses based on three things. They are a cross. They are comfortable to hold. And they are a bit crookie. Being 100% Swede, my Grandparents never said crooked, everything was "crookie". I think of them every time I say the name. Some say some of the crosses look like the J as in Jesus.
I see them as a distraction from everyday stress from jobs, family issues, or illness. When a Christian sees the cross, they think of Jesus. And being comfortable to hold helps to take you to a place away from the stress. A place that is Calm and Relaxing. A place of Peace and Comfort. I believe it is a Peace and Comfort that only Jesus can provide. This Peace is the assurance of GOD'S never ending LOVE for us.
The crosses are made of many different kinds of wood. They are all hand drawn, cut out, shaped, sanded, and finished by hand. One at a time. They are like me and you, all different but all the same.
All the crosses are finished with three coats of an oil based finish which penetrates the wood. The finish is actually mostly in the wood, not just laying on the surface. This makes the wood feel warmer, smoother, and softer.
My hopes and Prayers are that these crosses will bring someone to a place of Peace. My hope is also that someone will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed discovering them. I say discover because I have been Blessed by being the first to see the beauty in each piece of wood they are made from.
May GOD'S Peace be with you always!
