My engagement ring taught me why writing scripture is vital to Bible study.
When my husband was shopping for engagement rings he traveled to various jewelers around town looking for the “one.” I had given him one request. I wanted a certain cut called a “radiant cut.” The diamond was square shaped, but if you looked very closely you could see a round center. He had to shop smaller, specialized jewelers to find it. The cut was the only thing I requested; the design was up to him.
The ring is now a symbol of my husband’s devotion to me and love for me. I can still remember the night he asked, “Will you marry me?” on bended knee. It was the first moment I got a close look at my engagement ring.
A quick glance at the diamond won’t reveal the history of our engagement or even our wedding.
Even the diamond itself must be closely examined to see the full beauty.
To see the details and hear our story you have to lean in and listen close.
There’s beauty in paying close attention.
