Months ago as I scrolled though Facebook I came across a video Candace Cameron Bure shared on her timeline. Her daughter, Natasha Bure, surprised her on her birthday by joining the stage with Candace’s favorite band For King and Country as they sang her favorite song “Priceless”.
The moment I heard “Priceless” I fell in love, and God immediately put it on my heart to create a Priceless design. I knew I wanted the front to be a big white cross with PRICELESS down the side of it, but that was about it.
Months later, October 2016, Kyle and I attended our first For King and Country concert in Paducah, KY. It was honestly the best concert I’ve ever been too. I had already decided months before that I would release the Priceless design for Easter 2017, however, I still didn’t know what else I wanted in the design. We worshiped through the concert with thousands of other people, but near the end God got a hold of me.
I was standing there worshiping and began thanking God for our baby. (I know it sounds crazy, but you gotta ask for what you want right?) By this time we knew it wasn’t going to be an easy road, but we knew God would provide in His time. I held my stomach and prayed, Kyle did the same. After those moments I knew what the whole Priceless design was to encompass, and I was on a high. The minute we stepped out of the doors I began to tell Kyle, but I was so excited (or maybe nervous) that I couldn’t even get it out. (I’m one of those people that doesn’t explain things very well)
Like I said I knew the front of the t-shirt was to be a big white cross with the word PRICELESS running down it. I finally had the back, and it was what I would have never expected.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
To be completely honest John 3:16 had always kind of got on my nerves. Not that it isn’t an important scripture, but because it is always used for everything. However, now I see a whole different side of it. (Clearly, I am in no way shape or form a bible scholar, more like the farthest thing from it!)
Now I understand that because GOD LOVES THE WORLD (US) THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON. As I was praying for our baby I realized how much I already loved it, and it didn’t even truly exist. I got to thinking about what is truly priceless to us here on Earth…all material things fade away, but what are we willing to fight to the death for? Children. Our Children. On this Earth a woman’s and a man’s greatest love is their child. Their child is their most priceless possession.
Think about how much you love your children, or if you don’t have them how much you are going to love them someday. Can you image sacrificing your child for someone else? No! It is unfathomable. God did it though. He see’s each of us as being so priceless that He gave His one and only son for us! How amazing is that?
After the design was completed I hoped that I would still be able to release it on Easter, and thankfully we did know that we were pregnant on Easter. However, seven weeks was simply too early to announce to the world, but the perfect time came!
