Memorable Gift

My most memorable gift – that’s a tough question to answer.

Jesus shedding his blood to cover my sins is the most memorable but that is obvious.

I’m trying to think of one that came from another person.

Joe and I received a microwave from his brother and sister-in-law for our first Christmas. While that might not be the most memorable, it is the longest lasting. It died last year after 28 1/2 years of use.

There was the onyx and diamond ring my parents got me instead of a high school class ring. It did not make sense to spend money on a ring that would be worn only a year or two.

Dad took me back to college one weekend. Realizing it was still on my finger, I ran down the hallway and gave him the ring so it was safe. After all, a nice ring did not belong at college.

A couple weeks later, the carpet in our house was cleaned. Mom went into my room to check the jewelry box and the ring was gone. The person who cleaned the carpet denied taking it.

My parents bought me another onyx and diamond ring that is now too small for my fingers.

While I might think of another gift that is more memorable than my ring, this is a gift that has an interesting story.

May you be blessed with a memorable gift today.
