All of you pretty well know that I am pretty natural and down to earth. You’ll find me in blue jeans and a t-shirt almost every day except Sunday. You will usually find me wearing my wedding rings AND usually one of my other favorite rings. Right now, my favorite extra ring says “Not Today Satan”.
I’ve been going through a lot in my and the saying on the “Not Today Satan” ring reminds me that God is in control. I need to look down and see that on my hands. I actually repeat those three words out loud at times. I’m sure all of us have special jewelry that we like to wear at times. When I choose a different ring, that one usually has a special significance to me too.
Rings seem to not be in my way as much as other jewelry. It may be because I always wear my wedding band and engagement ring. Bracelets seem to bother me while I type. I’m getting better at wearing necklaces. I really am, even at my old age, I’m still trying to step out of my comfort zones.
As I think back about jewelry though, it was my Mother, who inspired me to wear rings. She wore rings on EVERY single finger. Although, I don’t go that far. I only wear one set on each hand. I don’t think I could type if I did any differently. I’m just a common old southern girl but my husband loves me. I know that he loves me dearly, no matter how common or plain jane I am. He’s never tried to change me.
Have you ever saw a piece of jewelry and know that it’s made just for you? Those are my VERY favorite types of jewelry and as usual, it’s most likely a ring. I hope that each one of you has that special piece of jewelry that will remind you of a special message. I’ve needed the “Not Today Satan” since Gracie has been gone. Satan has tried several times to tell me that today would be the day that he would be in control of my life when it comes to Gracie. But I just get into my Prayer Closet and pray.
Well, as you can tell, I like my rings to say something to me. What do you look while you are looking for rings?
