Song of Songs 6:3

I am my beloved and my beloved is mine.

I have these words on my wedding ring in Hebrew.  Eric gave it to me on my St. Valentine's Day card this year.  How romantic.

A lifetime ago I was out running with 3 dogs in downtown Ann Arbor and ran past a jewelry store window and a ring with dogs on it caught my eye!  I thought how cool was that--I love my dogs--I want my dogs at my wedding--I want this ring.  When I actually found out that the ring did not have dogs on it but had Hebrew lettering that look very much like dogs (with a creative imagination) I was a little embarrassed but fell in love with the ring and the idea of wearing such beautiful and meaningful words. 

Thank you God for the gift of my husband.  Please give me the grace to be a loving and respectful wife--no matter what!
