  1. What a beautiful, amazing story, Jennifer! What great lessons. I like how your dad didn’t get after you. “Well, you shouldn’t have been burying your ring in the first place…” That’s probably what I would have done! Thinking about my own parenting here. 🙂 Have missed your blog while gone 2 months, looking forward to more posts.

    1. Thanks, Betsy. I’m so glad you’ve made it home safely from your travels. I would have been sorely tempted to lecture my child in that situation, too. The only thing that would keep me from it is the grace of God and the memory of how thankful I was not to get a lecture that night so long ago. My dad didn’t have to tell me how stupid I had been. He and I both knew that I’d figured that out on my own, had learned my lesson, and would never play that silly game again!

  2. Thank you for this beautiful post. You are a very gifted writer! This inspired me to pray specifically for an extremely atheistic cousin whose childhood was indescribably horrible. His abusive father claimed to be a Christian, so is it any wonder that he now rejects our Father in heaven? Please pray for Ed, that he would come to understand the love of God and would accept Him as Lord and Savior of His life, so that he might lead his family to faith; that he and his sweet little daughter and his wife would each be saved!

    Thank you again for your beautifully-written words!
