|Engraved with True Love Waits|
It has heart shaped solitaire and is engraved with the Bible verse from Timothy 4:12 "True Love Waits."
Timothy 4:12 "True Love Waits"
For birthdays, we generally go out to eat as a family. For her birthday, I chose a local steakhouse. I kept the ring in my jeans pocket and waited until that lull time after you order, get your drinks and hungrily await for your food to arrive.
|A little oversized but I can fix that|
I pulled my chair up next to her and looked her in the eyes. I took a few moments to just appreciate what she has become and it warmed my heart that she has remained pure in a time when society so quickly adores teenage moms, celebrity hussies and an eroding moral fabric of young women.
I pulled the ring out and held it up to the light so that it sparkled just like her beautiful eyes. I then said:
Sis, you've come a long way and I'm so proud of you. You have done such a wonderful job in becoming a beautiful young woman. I bought you this promise ring and I invite you to wear it on your wedding finger.
I want you to promise me before God and your family that you will continue to save yourself for your wedding night. I promise to do my best to help you find your perfect soul mate and just ask that you trust me and remain patient.
She nodded in silence and stared intently at the ring on her finger as she slowly tilted it back and forth in the light as to make it glisten. We hugged and I never felt so proud.
She continues to wear it every day and cherishes it. It not only shows her how much her father loves her and believes in her but also gives her a physical excuse to show boys who get a little too...froggy.
