A meaningful birthday gift

This year I got a very special gift from Dad–my purity ring! I sort of guessed that this might be one of my presents, because Gretchen got her ring on her fifteenth birthday. Mom sneakily found out my ring size when we talked about Natalie’s engagement ring. And I had also told her that I preferred silver over gold.

The light purple gift bag was the last I opened, along with cards from Dad and Mom. I started crying as I read them, because I knew what the bag held. And inside several layers of black boxes, there was the beautiful silver ring that slipped on my finger so perfectly. Appropriately, it has a gift wrapped heart on it. I’m so thankful that my parents decided to give me something that will constantly remind me of the commitment I have made to God.

My Gift Wrapped Heart

My gift’s a secret, hid beneath
this golden foil and bow.
My Father wrapped it in His Love
for only one to know.

My gift is very precious
and the wrapping’s precious too;
The one without the other
spoils the mystery and the clue.

For though the pressure’s strong
my God is with me from the start
and He’ll be there with me when
I give my love, My Gift Wrapped Heart.
