Most Precious

 Being loved by God is the most incredible thing anyone will ever experience. His plan of salvation is the ultimate example of sacrificial love. The love of a Father toward His children. I can really tear up about the love of a father. It is the most precious thing to ever have on this earth. It is not just sons that need their fathers. Daughters need their fathers too. Experiencing the love of an earthly father is vital to one's self confidence, self worth, and overall well-being. If at any given time one feels that the love from one's father is less, your world can fall apart. When reassured of that love, kinship, and relationship, everything becomes brighter. It is then that you realize what is most precious.
 Last night I received from my dad the most beautiful, special gift I have ever been given. He had me sit on the couch and close my eyes. Something light was placed in my hand. I opened my eyes to see a card laying there and out of the corner of my eye a saw an elegant gift bag on the table. I opened the card and in my dad's firm, straight print he told me that ever since he had seen the movie Courageous he had wanted to give me a ring just like the dad in the movie did for his daughter. A ring of commitment that shows that he loves me and is responsible for me until the day he gives me away to someone else who loves and cherishes me and gives me a ring to replace the one he was giving me. Even now as I write this, I cannot help but cry. I was not so subtle as I read the card, however. I'll be honest and admit I was sobbing. When I ever so carefully reached through the tissue paper and got the box and opened it, there lay a lovely and elegant ring. The real deal. Sterling silver, diamonds, all sparkly and contrasting white and black. I was truly speechless. I still am. :) Haven't quite yet found just the right words to say thank you, yet I know he knows how much it means to me. Unfortunately, I had to part with it today for a short time while it is getting re-sized from a 7 to a 5 1/2. ( Yes, I have very small hands and fingers :P ) I am so, so glad that I was able to get a couple okay pictures of the ring itself before I had to give it up for a few days. :) So, without further ado, here is my love gift. :)
