little blue ring

my ring

I stumbled upon this beautiful little blue ring one day while looking at some blogs, and fell for it so quickly I immediately "pinned" it! The original link for the source of the ring was no where to be found though. Bummer. Since then, I have found myself looking everywhere for this ring, or one similar. Online, at jewelry stores, even considered asking a jeweler if she could make it! And then the day came that I found it. It is so close to the picture that I pinned, I couldn't buy it fast enough. A little Christmas gift to myself!

Turquoise supposedly is a "healing" stone. There is also belief that it provides protection, strength, and good fortune to the wearer. I am fine with any of that being true, can't hurt I suppose! But mainly, I love that it is like a tiny blue moon on my hand. And the reminder to keep searching. Which strangely enough is the motto of 400 Moons:

"We surround ourselves with things that we love.
Objects that speak to our soul.
It may take us a long time to find each object,
but we keep searching until we do.

Even if it takes us many moons.

I've written you at least 8 comments to your last post then deleted them because it just never sounded right. I've been praying for you like crazy. Praying for peace - overwhelming peace. We studied this verse today and I knew I needed to get on the computer and send it to you.

"I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I remember them well and my soul is downcast within me. YET this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord's great love WE ARE NOT CONSUMED, FOR HIS COMPASSIONS NEVER FAIL. THEY ARE NEW EVERY MORNING. Great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:19-23

During a hard time of life, i prayed this every morning: Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Ps 143:8

I didn't want to write this and sound preachy, but well i know not wanting to get out of bed in the morning. And I know the cloud of depression. (Screw that cloud) I'm praying for Joy in your life and just needed you to know that I am fighting for you over here. I love you and am so very thankful that i know you.

Happy day to you, beautiful friend. Love you so much!
