I thought about humility, as one example, and then searched for posts and poems that may go well with this prompt.

This prompt recalled a post from May 15, 2012: A Cross Necklace. I will reprint the post today.
The lilies-of-the-valley are beginning to bloom. My mother loved them, as I’m sure is true of many people. I was just reading poems by Luci Shaw, and I shared her books with Mom too. I remembered a marble cross necklace my mother had. She gave me permission to wear it to high school, over 40 years ago. And I lost it somehow and never found it. My mother was so kind. She pictured God’s love for me in many ways, including the keeping of material possessions in perspective.
