In two short weeks, this ring has become a habit, something I expect to see on my hand. But still, I turn the stone this way and that in the light and am amazed at all the change it means.
We’ve crammed so much already into two weeks: so many decisions and plans, so many conversations it’s okay to have now, so many dreams.
I spent years wondering if I’d always have a bare left-hand ring finger. I talked to God about it a lot, asked Him why and how, begged Him sometimes for a husband and sometimes for the grace to be husbandless.
I am astonished now at how He can completely transform dreams in making them come true, making them larger and brighter and more terrifying and more wonderful than anything I could have planned.
But I know that His giving is infinitely kind, just as I am certain that if He had always said “no,” that would have been infinitely kind.
This God, His way is perfect.
For that — and for all the things this ring means — I praise Him.
Today I link up with Kate Motaung’s Five Minute Friday, writing on her prompt, Dream. Click the photo above to visit her site.
