Staying at home during this pandemic is not easy. We all need to be finding some meaningful things to do with our time.
Since we were coming up on Easter week, I decided to make our two grown sons a wooden cross that they could place in their own front yards so people could be reminded of the sacrifices Jesus made for all of us. So I went to Home Depot, bought several pieces of lumber and started working. I put them up in their yards one morning before they woke up and they each loved them.
One suggested I do this for others that may not have the chance to get out right now or the ability to make them. So I put something on Facebook, saying I’d make anyone a cross and deliver it to their house. At no cost to them. It’d be my honor to do that.
I am not the biggest Facebook guy but in just a matter of hours, I was inundated with requests from friends, family members, and people I didn’t even know that heard about it, including some from other states.
So for the last few days, I’ve been in my garage measuring, sawing, drilling and then delivering these crosses all around my community. I just pull up and place it on their lawn and drive off. Social distancing, you know. I’ve had to make some additional trips to buy even more lumber as more people make requests.
This is my very small way of honoring the Lord. To let people know that God is still in control, even during this very strange time throughout the world. He is still sovereign.

Such an excellent idea. Something simple but effective and touches so many hearts during this time.
