Symbols on Our Hands
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments I give you today are to be on your hearts...tie them as symbols on your hands. Deuteronomy 6:5-6;8
When I look down at the sparkling rings on my left hand, I am reminded of my wedding day. I am reminded of the commitment Kevin and I made to one another: to love each other deeply regardless of circumstance or years passed, to put one another's needs before our own, to put Christ at the center of it all. My ring is so much more than a piece of jewelry Kevin gave me on a cloudy September day; it is a symbol.
And what if all jewelry and art were viewed as more than something you wear or display in your home, but as something you passionately believe in? What if they symbolized something greater and reminded you of something deeper, full of life and hope and love.
These are the things I think about when sitting down to create. And it is from these thoughts that I made the new line of rings. Created with tiny knots, these simple rings are truly tied on one's hands, reminding us to love the Lord with all our heart and all our soul and all our strength.
My desire is that these rings can serve as simple reminders throughout stressful and busy days. Throughout days when our hearts are rushed and we are at the end of the rope, we might remember what truly matters. That we may tie them as symbols on our hands.
