day16-cross

For the last couple months, this cross has hung on the back of our front door.  It is not there for any particular reason other than that I have been too lazy to put it away.

I threw this together the evening before we went to the Renaissance Faire as part of the monk garb I wore that day.  But even though it was thrown together quickly, there is something about it that draws me to it.  It is plain, simple, cheap, and thrown together for a particular task.  It is not gilded or ornate.  It is not the product of careful artistry.  It is the product of scrap wood and twine laying about my garage.

I think what draws me to it is the merging of the ordinary and the divine.  Just as with the cross that stood at Calvary two millennia ago.

What do you think?
