Comfort Cross Giveaway

I just received this Comfort Cross to review, and it is beautiful. I start my Rituxan treatments on Wednesday, and was so pleased to receive this before I go. Not like I want it to be an idol or anything, but knowing that it came from Bethlehem, from a genuine olive tree, from the city of Jesus' birth...It immediately became very special to me.

Comfort Cross supports Christian craftsman in Bethlehem who carve these crosses to provide for their families.

I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when I got this. It fits perfectly in my hand, and I can see how this could be used as a reminder to pray for someone, to comfort a child and remind them that God is always with them. There really was a sense of peace that came over me when I held this cross. This card comes with it, in a beautiful burgundy pouch.

If you would like one of these wonderful crosses, all you need to do is leave me a comment telling me if you would keep this cross for yourself or give it to someone you care about. The makers of the Comfort Cross are giving two lucky readers their very own Comfort Cross! If you would like to purchase a cross for you or a loved one, you can go to the Comfort Cross website and order them. They have special deals for fundraising for churches, and deals on ordering more than one.

Two winners will be drawn randomly by Random.org on Friday, March 25th at 5:00 PM EST. I will post the winners on my blog and contact the individuals for their mailing information.

I'm not sure when my aunt got one of those but she had it with her when she was dying of cancer last year. I am sure it brought her great comfort.

If this giveaway is open to international participation I'd like to enter. I'd keep it for myself to remind me to calm down and pray when Matthew is driving me particularly crazy before I lose my cool.

Cheers :-)
