Welcome to CrissCross Connections, a comfy blog for women, moms, and grandmas. You’ll find reflections on life, favorite quotes, devotional thoughts, ideas for moms and grandmas, yummy recipes, and titles of some of the books I like.
What’s behind the title – CrissCross Connections? CrissCross means to move back and forth. It’s also a form of the Middle English Cristcrosse, a mark of the cross. In my life, I have many things to be thankful for, the greatest being Christ’s sacrifice on the cross for me. He personally carried my sins in his body on the cross so that I can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds, I am healed. (I Peter 2:24) And Connections? It’s a way of linking, associating, or communicating with one another, as between two points in a telephone or wiring system – hence, the photo of London phone booths, which I am especially fond of.
All that etymology and word meaning boils down to this thought: In my blog entries, I’m hoping to connect – move back and forth – with others about the hopeful and meaningful life we can have as women, moms, and grandmas because of the cross.
