Proverbs 3:3 (MSG)
Don't lose your grip on Love and Loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart.
My Daddy gave me a beautiful necklace when I was a little girl.
It was a shining black~star sapphire set into the center of a golden heart shaped necklace. My father brought it back to me from Thailand, upon returning from a tour of duty with the Air Force. I placed that necklace around my neck nearly every day growing up. To me it was a symbol of my father's love for me. When he wasn't around, all I had to do was look down at that necklace to be reminded of his strong, yet gentle care for me.
I found myself staring at it a lot. He told me that inside of the stone, there was a star. When you look into the stone, there is light glowing out of it. Still to this day, I don't understand how this stone creates light within it? All I know, is that this light that never goes out, is representative of a Daddy's love for his child...and it never quits shining!
I have sense put the stone into a ring that I wear on my right hand, so that I can see it easier. My ring quietly represents a love and loyalty that has been there for me all of my life. If I lose this piece of jewlery, I am still ok......because I will always have my father's love carved on my heart.
Praying today for His love to be deeply carved in the hearts of His children.
