INSIDE COVER PAGE: "The cross. It is an image that stirs the deepest sadness and the greatest joy simultaneously. Sadness for the brutal death that was underserved. Guilt laid upon the innocent. Joy for the hope-filled life that is also undeserved. Innocence laid upon the guilty. It was a simple structure designed for an agonizing death. It became a complex, multi-faceted image used as a path to joyful life. It represents to me hope, grace, freedom, promise, forgiveness, love. More good things than could ever be listed on the pages of a book. May the images in this journal stir you to think deeply on what the cross means to you. And may you be left with the deepest sense of gratitude in this life now as we wait longingly for the life to come. "

The cross is the most meaningful image I know. It reminds me of my helplessness and my hopefulness. I am so pleased to offer my newest journal which contains a series of nine cross paintings I did to portray the different ways it speaks to me. On the back of each one are my words pertaining to that particular cross. I hope this can be a continual reminder of the grace we did not deserve, but was so freely given.
I bought two of these beautiful books. Years ago I made journals for my daughters as they grew. I stopped when they still young. I decided to purchases these to start again filling them in with memories old ones and new ones. then give as christmas gifts. These cross journals are well made and beautifully and creatively designed. I look forwad to filling them in.
Love it, great quality of paper, nice pictures.
Original art that appeals to everyone. The scriptures with images I love. Thank you.
I purchased this for a friend who was recently diagnosed with cancer so that she could record God's faithfulness to her each day in order to have a tangible remembrance to reflect upon during her most difficult days. What a lovely item! The artwork is beautiful and the quality of the journal is the best I've seen. Well worth the money, in my opinion. The wrapping paper, ribbon and card that I chose for this gift did not disappoint. I am now not only a fan of Mr. Arms' art but am so pleased to have found a new and unique site for gift ordering! Thank you for blessing my friend and myself!
