My mom took one of the crosses I've made and added her swarovski crystals to match the Jewels mentioned in the Book of Revelation (Rev 21:19-20).
This week I read a book she recommended called "Heaven is for Real". It is a quick read sharing the words of a young boy who says he went to heaven during surgery years ago. He's only a year older than one of my sons, and I remember what I was doing with my young sons while their young son was dangerously ill.
Mom said she actually started the crystals on the cross before she read the book, but what a coincidence to another reference to the jewels. I took the photos on Holy Thursday, and finally got it listed on Etsy on Good Friday.
