    I went to the store for no apparent reason…

    Standing before a glass chamber which
    held symbols of love everlasting , eternal
    commitment, joy and Dedication to another
    Creating a union of two into one;

    I perused these trinkets of silver and gold,
    Diamonds in all shapes and sizes, until I
    arrived to one built for you;

    The band, which wraps your finger, was made
    of white gold, a symbol of pure love, glimmering
    yet strong, represents me covering you;

    Resting on top were two crosses made of yellow
    Gold, a sign of royal and regal nature, a reminder
    of God’s sacrifice for humanity whom he loved;
    They…represent my commitment to you…

    Between the crosses on top of the band stood the
    most precious of jewels; a diamond, unblemished
    in its perfection, crystal clear and balanced as the
    light captures its edge to show its worth;

    Put it all together you will see…
    A man strong enough to hold the crosses,
    a symbol of his agape love covering the
    diamond, the precious gem he cherishes;

    The band... the foundation holding up
    The crosses... agape love covering
    The diamond... that which represents you,

    This is a symbol of my strength, commitment and
    love which is the reason why I give this ring to you....

    this is

    what a band of love was ALWAYS intended to mean. Thank you for speaking it so beautifully...it is evident that the precious bands & gems are but physical symbols of the eternal rings of love around your hearts.

    You continue to convey truth so eloquently.

    Thank you

    A
