A Cross .. 
Is it a shape, a religious symbol or both ???

I am personally not religious, I believe that everything happens for a reason, that is may not make sense straight away, but there is always a reason. 

I have nothing against anyone who is religious, a few of my closest friends are Christian. I believe that everyone has their individual right to believe in anything they wish, whether it be God or Aliens!

I could go on about this but do not wish to start a debate, so back to my original question .... A Cross .. a shape, a religious symbol or both ???

My answer ... Both!

To some people a cross is a religious symbol, but it is also a shape ... I love the shape of crosses and have quite a few different cross necklaces .. What I find very interesting though is that when I wear one of my cross necklaces I have been asked or assumed to be Christian .. Like last week I was wearing one of my favourite necklaces, which happens to be a multicoloured wire wrapped cross, and one of my workmates commented on it saying "I like your necklace! (Thanks) Is it a cross? (Yes) Are you Christian? (No) Oh.." And this was just because I was wearing a cross - Where actually I just like the shape & that particular necklace. 

What do you think?


  1. Interesting! I share your views on the world but having been brought up in a church going family I associate crosses with Christianity and don't wear them for that reason.

  2. I guess a cross is a pretty widely known christian symbol, but its also a really pretty shape. Is that the necklace you were wearing in the picture? I love it!
