A Comforting Tradition When Going Through Hardship

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

In my family we have a tradition. It’s one that brings comfort again & again. We each have a small cross that we keep with us.

The ladies in my family keep it in the lipstick pocket of their jeans. When things get tough in life, we can reach into that pocket, feel that cross and know this comfort:

We do not walk the path alone. God is with us.
