We have an employee where I work that has been off work now for about 2 months on family medical leave. He has needed to miss work occasionally over the past few years as their daughter has been in and out of the hospital. She has been in a hospital in Milwaukee for the past two months. To date the hospitals have not been able to determine what she has. She has gone from a three year old walking and playing to sitting in a wheel chair at age seven. I believe it has been a difficult for the family going to hospitals and specialist in multiple states and still not know. Consulting with specialist in other hospitals in other states.
At work we recently had a bake sale, silent auction and fund raiser. While making the Cross, I decided that I would send it to the hospital instead of auctioning it. It became my Prayer Cross for Leah. I received word earlier this week that their daughter held the cross for about an hour before they hung it on the wall. They will hang it in her room when she comes home. It was very gratifying that the Cross was well received.
The Cross is made with Purple Heart in the middle, wrapped with Maple. Outside of the maple is Bloodwood with Walnut being the outside layer. Sanded through 1200, with 4 coats of laquer.
Prayers for Leah
