I passed up the trip to Tanzania with the bloggers to watch my daughter go to jail.
Speaking of things that are precious…..
I lost a diamond this week. In 21 years of marriage, I have managed to loose two diamonds in two different wedding rings (yes, I have only been married once though, long story on why I had to have two rings). I have a skill or something for bashing the diamond right out of the ring. Yesterday, I looked down at my ring, and the center diamond was missing. My heart sank.
We searched the house completely.
Possibly I shouldn’t wear expensive jewelry. I told my husband I should have a simple band, no diamonds.
I decided not to cry about it though. It wasn’t a $5000 diamond or anything like that, but it was a precious stone. However, marriage isn’t about the diamond and the ring doesn’t necessarily tell me I am more married or more in love. No, it’s the other parts of life that make the marriage like our time together, our lives together, endless conversations, the love, the hardships, the fights, the children, the decisions, and most importantly, the commitment. Sure, it hurts to loose a precious stone, but better to loose a stone than the marriage, and for Stephen I am grateful.
In the grand scheme of life, there are certain things that can be replaced, such as stones, lost cell phones, and broken dishes, and other things that can’t be replaced, like time, marriage, children and their victories. There are certain treasures we can take to Heaven and certain treasures we can’t. So even though I lost something valuable, I didn’t loose something I can’t replace, like watching her grow up.
