CROSS IN MY POCKET
We continue to create and sell this very popular ‘Cross in my Pocket’ at £2.00 each (plus P & P), which have been beautifully designed by the late Miss Greta Walker, who was one of our constant supporters.
These items are in great demand, being treasured by clergy and laity, and this has proved to be a wonderful ministry. They usually have to be ordered due to demand.
The Cross in my Pocket is a perfect gift for someone you wish to encourage in their faith, each little pocket carries a small cross and the words
I carry a cross in my pocket
a simple reminder to me
of the fact that I am a Christian
no matter where I may be.
This little cross is not magic
nor is it a good luck charm
it isn’t meant to protect me
from every physical harm.
It’s not for identification
for all the world to see
It’s simply an understanding
between my Saviour and me.
When I put my hand in my pocket
to pull out a coin or a key
the cross is there to remind me
of the price He paid for me.
It reminds me to be thankful
for my blessings day by day
to strive to serve Him better
in all I do and say.
It’s also a daily reminder
of the peace and comfort I share
with all who know my Master
and give themselves to His care.
So I carry a cross in my pocket
reminding no-one but me
that JESUS CHRIST is LORD of my life
if only I’ll let Him be
