"I am the light of the world." When I was baptized as Catholic in 2015, this part of John 8:12 entered my mind. At that time, I wore the necklace my parents gave me for the occassion, the cross on the bottom. It is special for that very reason. I will always remember that Easter, and those words echoing in my mind.
On top is the crucifix my in-laws gave me around the same time. The original chain broke thanks to me being, well, me. Thankfully, @pewwer42
let me use the chain from one his old necklaces--his St. Paul one, to be precise. It is my first, and only, crucifix.
I did not feel I could tell one necklace's story without also sharing the other. Both were given to me as I became Catholic, a new part of my journey.
