Ring of love....

One of my good friends from church recently got engaged. It was so fun to hear how her fiancee surprised her with a romantic meal and a sweet DVD documenting their love. Of course, it was also important to see her gorgeous engagement ring. He did a great job!

Over the next few days, I started reminiscing about the night I got my ring!! I was completely surprised and overwhelmed by my sweetheart's detailed planning of the evening. I can remember looking at my brand new diamond all the time! It was a representation of our fresh, new, exciting love. I couldn't stop thinking about it!!
It's been over 6 years since I started wearing my precious ring, and although I still play with it and look at it often, my mind isn't quite as consumed with it! And, you know, I actually think that it is a beautiful thing....
My ring has become a part of who I am, and I would feel lost without it. The same thing has happened with our love. While I don't think about it every minute of every day, I can say that it has deepened and matured. I would be lost without it (and him)!!
One of the sweetest gifts I have ever received isn't my amazing 1/2 carat diamond engagement ring.....
It is the security and love I have in the man who was created by God for me! I love you, sweetheart!!

*AND congrats to Seth and Joy on your engagement!! Can't wait to be a part of this new chapter in your lives!!
