Every day, I wear a few different pieces of jewelry (if you could call them jewelry, for there are no jewels involved 😏). Each piece means something to me, so I though I’d share a little about them!
I wear a stainless steel sideways cross necklace, and I can’t remember the last time I took it off! One meaning of the sideways cross is that we need to take up our own crosses daily. That’s what this necklace reminds me of.
I’ve also got a stainless steel ring that used to have the word purity on the outside, but that has since been rubbed away ☺. The ring still has the word forgiven on the inside, though! This ring reminds me to only let pure things into my mind. Here, you can read the full story of this ring.
Another piece I wear daily is a ring inscribed with this quote from Shakespeare: “Though she be but little, she is fierce.” My parents gave it to me as a dance performance gift last year. Though I am but little, I can accomplish great things through God! The lettering of this one rubbed off too, but you can still see the indentations.
The last piece I wear daily is a Timex Ironman Triathlon watch. I wear it for less sentimental, more utilitarian reasons… I like to know the time (dur), I use it to set timers to steep tea, and I use the stopwatch feature to time the hours I help my parents with extra jobs (aren’t they so generous to pay me?). The watch has other features, but those are the ones I use all the time. Bonus – it is waterproof, so I really rarely take it off.
Do you wear any jewelry daily? What does it mean to you?
