On February 14 this year a camera crew
from the BBC took over our little shop in Birmingham’s famous Jewellery
Quarter Birmingham, to film for an episode of songs of praise.
“It was a really exciting day especially for my staff and I could hardly believe that they filmed all day for what was around 8 minutes of the programme!”
The programme was aired on Sunday September 8th at 17.00 when presenter Bill Turnbull explored the significance of the cross.
As for me the cross remains at the centre of my faith, I first fell in love with Jesus when I was just eleven years old I was in church and the preacher told of how Jesus died on the cross to save me from sin, how could I refuse such love?
My little heart just opened up, I asked Jesus to forgive all I’d done wrong, to come into my heart and to be my friend, He did and He has been the love of my life ever since!
As a teenager, at the age of 15, I fell out with the Church and wandered into a wilderness of doing things my way, which left me after some years, like the prodigal son, emotionally bankrupt.
But Christ never forgot His covenant of love with the heart of a child, at the age thirty I was living in Germany, in an abusive marriage and at the end of my line…I remembered the cross, I remembered the love and the safety I felt when I first loved Jesus, I cried out to him and he remembered me!
Now Christ is the centre of my life, the lover of my soul and I wouldn’t swap this cross for all the riches in the world!
In this video we celebrate the cross as a universal symbol of love, forgiveness and redemption for all who will accept its triumphant message!
Each cross shown in this video is made with love in silver or gold at our workshops in Birmingham to our own unique design.
Love and blessings in Jesus,
Blessings in Jesus,
