a ray of sunshine in a gloomy week

This week has been so gloomy and snowy and icey, and all while i'm on call at work.
but today, God encouraged me through a little lady who i had to work for.
i managed to get her to her hair appointment on time and do her grocery shopping,
then when we got back she gave me this cross. and with this cross was a little peice of paper
with a poem on it:

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 isn't 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 the Savior and me.

when i put my hand in my pocket
to bring out a coin or a key,
the cross is there to remind me
of the price He paid for me.

it reminds me too, to be thankful
for my blessing day by day
and to strive to serve Him better
in all that i do or 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.
