Mail from Mark Rossmiller has been blowing up my mail box this month. I have received nine envelopes from him. I'll blog about those items at a later time, but I've got to share the awesome mail that came my way today!
I had a "parcel pickup" notice in my post office box. I went up to the service counter, and the postal worker came back and said (in a not so amused voice), "It's a skateboard." Imagine my surprise and delight!
The skateboard has a drawing of the DIVINE MERCY JESUS, along with the phrase, "Jesus I Trust In You." It is based on the Diary of Saint Faustina, an uneducated Polish nun who, in obedience to her spiritual director, wrote around 600 pages recording the revelations she received about God's mercy. A "Divine Mercy Novena and Chaplet" pamphlet is affixed to the bottom of this Element Brand "Twigs" skateboard deck.
It is interesting that Mark should give me this mail! As a Catholic, I have prayed the Divine Mercy Chaplet many times, and consider it one of my favorite devotions.
I hope to hang this piece in my studio. A conversation starter, for sure!
Thank you very much, Mark!
