When I was offered a chance to review a personalized item from CrossTimber, I decided right away to get one for my youngest Jack, since he will begin his formal First Holy Communion preparations this year. That decision made, ordering was simple! I just went to the CrossTimber website, picked out the background motif and frame, typed in Jack's name, and added shipping information.
Not long after that, I received a package in the mail and found this:
Before opening the well-packaged name plaque and bookmark I'd ordered for Jack, I new his name gift would have a castle/knights motif. For, Jack is a knight-loving, sword-fighting boy and as soon as I saw that background, I knew it would be perfect for him. However, I had no idea* how ideal the name meaning and verse that CrossTimber would come up with for Jack would be.
I was surprised and delighted to see that the meaning CrossTimber selected included God's graciousness and being redeemed by truth. Likewise, I was happy to discover that the familiar verse CrossTimber hand-picked for Jack's plaque included the words "...the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace". Considering that the plaque and bookmark will be given to Jack to remember his First Reconciliation, both the name meaning and the words in the Bible verse just seem perfect!
*Let me clarify, though, that I could have known the meaning that would appear on the plaque as I ordered it. For the folks at CrossTimber are happy to chat online with customers about such things. I simply chose to let the meaning and verse be a surprise for me - as they will be for my son.
