The In the Hand of God Keychain reminds us that all children are so very near and dear to God their Heavenly Father. Children (and those who become like little children in their simple faith and trust) are the ones who actually will enter the Kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 18:1-5,10; Mark 10:13-16). Perhaps your children need assurance that God is watching over them. Perhaps you or soemone you know needs assurance because a child is seriously ill or has passed away recently. The In the Hand of God Keychain is a simple gift and reminder in such difficult times of anxiety, fear, and tragic loss.
A Keychain for children and for those who love them…
The medallion itself (not including the chain) measures 2 inches in length. This heirloom-quality solid bronze keychain was designed and cast in a monastery foundry in Germany. The In the Hand of God Keychain will make a most fitting and appreciated gift in difficult times of stress, fear, despair, and loss.
God holds every child in the palm of God’s hand!
The traditional Irish blessing serves well as a prayer for the full recovery of a seriously ill child, as a prayer for entrusting a deceased child to God’s tender mercies, as a small sign of solace and consolation to those overwhelmed with sorrow and grief, and as a promise that we will see our deceased loved ones again in Heaven:
May the road rise to meet you,
may the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
