    A Cross in My Pocket

    A Cross in My Pocket



    by Verna Mae Thomas
















    I carry a cross in my pocket
    A simple reminder to me
    Of the fact that I am a Christian
    No matter where I may be.

    This little cross is not magic,
    Nor is it a good luck charm
    It isn't meant to protect me
    From every physical harm.

    It's not for identification
    For all the world to see
    It's simply an understanding
    Between my Savior and me.

    When I put my hand in my pocket
    To bring out a coin or a key
    The cross is there to remind me
    Of the price He paid for me.

    It reminds me, too, to be thankful
    For my blessings day by day
    And to strive to serve Him better
    In all that I do and say.

    It's also a daily reminder
    Of the peace and comfort I share
    With all who know my Master
    And give themselves to His care.

    So, I carry a cross in my pocket
    Reminding no one but me
    That Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life
    If only I'll let Him be.
