I used to think my cross to bear was my stuttering speech impediment, being the right color at the wrong time, being too tall to get a date, being the only female in the board room. But who decided that our crosses are all negative attributes? We forget that from the Cross also comes healing, change, resurrection, forgiveness, purpose, and accountability. Thus my Cross also embraces a Cross of joy, a Cross of encouragement, a Cross of love, a Cross of peace, and a Cross of creativity. Everyone is called to carry their " Cross" or "Crosses" based on their life experiences. My Cross is not your Cross and your Cross is not mine. Thus my latest key chain and zipper pull creative project entitled CROSSES OF DIVERSITY.
