Is there anyone besides me that can’t sit still and just watch TV even when you’re under the weather? Mind you, I’m not hyper, just have to be doing something or making something.
So from some scrap wood (walnut, padauk and sycamore) I wanted to make something small that I can hold in my hand and keep in my pocket…hold it, rub on it while meditating, praying or just for feeling good. The first one was a simple traditional cross. After looking at it for a while, I started carving on it. I thought that Jesus taught his diciiples to be fishers of men and their fishing boats were sailboats. So the vertical part of the cross became a boat. Looking at it from the side the upper part resembles a man sitting in it, but when you look at it from the bow or stern, it would look like a nail that was used on Jesus that pass through the hull on to the keel. Since I made it, sometime ago, it has been mu constant companion in my pocket everyday. It gives me comfort when I rub on it . . . sort of like the comfort bears or bunnies or turtles. Hope y’all like it too.
