My Three Rings

My new life started in June 2009.  At some point that summer, I realized I would need something attached to me to remind me of my priorities.  I thought about a bracelet, but I don’t wear much jewelry.  I don’t even wear a watch.  I looked down at my wedding band.  That means something.  Went through my things and found two other rings that were perfect for the job.

So every morning for the last three years, I put these rings on, in a specific order, and say a little prayer while I do it.

The silver braided ring reppresents the Holy Trinity.  As I put this one on, I just say “thank you”.

Then, I put on my wedding band and pray for my husband.  Always the same  – keep him safe and give him a good day.

The plain silver ring represents me.  As I put this one on, I pray for strength, patience, clarity, and direction.  Basically, I pray for the smarts to see the path and to stay on it.

I like wearing these reminders.  Every time I need them, they are right there.

  1. They’re beautiful 🙂

    I’ve been the opposite. I’ve stopped wearing my wedding ring because it is too big, and it also interferes with my grip when doing weights. So I sort of stopped wearing it in the morning, and I often forget to put it on again when I get home. It usually sits on the kitchen windowsill.

    Am thinking of getting a wedding tattoo instead. At least it won’t interfere with my training!
