Our Third Anniversary
Next month, Erica and I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Looking back over the years, we have gone through a lot. Great times and difficult times. However, 3 years ago on December 17th, we started a new covenant. We decided to never take our wedding rings off. I guess the only exception would be surgery or some sort of emergency. We wanted it to signify our marriage never taking a break and being constant in all seasons.
So, we take showers with them, put lotion on with them, we dig in dirt with them, we sleep with them, and do many other activities with them…
Thankfully, we bought platinum rings so they are very durable and can take the pressure.
Several times, I have been in situations where the ring was a powerful reminder of my commitment. The ring speaks to others as much as it speaks to me. “He is off limits!!” and “You are off limits!” I am thankful for the powerful reminder the ring gives, and I am thankful for a God and wife that love to keep commitments.
