“Grace Through Adversity”

Description from Mellow Mellie: Two crosses placed on the diagonal and intersecting one another. One made of crosses and the other with beautiful pastel luster beads.
(This is for my 16 yr old daughter and I'm praying she finds grace through adversity during these trying times. She is virtually finishing her junior year. The prom dress recently purchased must wait until next year. She is a ballet dancer and recently auditioned and was accepted into six different ballet companies' summer programs. She chose the Cincinnati Ballet's six-week program and is praying it isn't cancelled. Trying to keep her strong and training at home because her studio is also closed for the year. I remind her of 1 Peter 5:7.)

    Oh I hope your daughter gets through this without bitterness. How lovely that she is a dancer. Your pick would make some beautiful jewelry or prayer beads.

    What a touching description! The diagonal crosses are beautiful, and yes, would make lovely prayer beads. Hopefully everything will work out for your talented daughter!

    Lovely. While these times are hard for everyone, I especially feel for the young people with all their hopes and dreams and exuberance, where one month feels like a lifetime to them.

    This is a beautiful pick and I love the placement of your items into crosses. I feel for you and your daughter. My son is also 16, and a junior, and all his “stuff” has been canceled, including college tours. Heavy sigh. Hang in there (becoming a favorite phrase)!

    A beautiful pick! I hope your dtr is able to resume her dancing soon. My granddaughter also does dance- all her competitions are cancelled. It’s hard for the kids!

    It is hard on today’s children and youth. They haven’t really had a lot of heavy duty world wide events that have effected everyday living world wide. I hope that all the kids missing proms, being with their friends in person, school, church and some even are missing their graduation ceremonies. It is hard for them to understand now why they are losing those major events. Hope that the summer will bring some normalcy to everyone’s life. Love your pick!
