Bethlehem Olive Wood Comfort Cross | Holy Land Holding Cross | Palm Prayer Cross

$ 5.95

Holy Land olive wood comfort crosses, sometimes referred to as holding crosses, palm crosses, or prayer crosses, are individually hand-carved and smoothly sanded from a single piece of olive wood pruned from the olive trees that flourish around the holy city of Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus located just south of Jerusalem. The grain pattern of each olive wood comfort cross is distinctively unique, magnificently created by our Heavenly Father just as He has created each of us. 

We pray that the Holy Land olive wood comfort crosses serve as a reassuring reminder that God is with you always and everywhere. As you cling to His promises, we pray that you are comforted by the knowledge that your days are held securely in His hands.

    Top notch all the way

    Great web site, speedy delivery, and beautiful products. The wood grain crosses are gorgeous and feel so warm and comforting. My husband gave me one when I was sick, and I still love holding it. Now I am passing them on to other family members who could use the same kind of comfort. I loved getting a handwritten thank you on the invoice too! Thank you for being there for the rest of us.
