I recently made the vow of purity and would like to share it with you girls! ; )
What is it?
It's a promise to God, to your dad (he is supposed to help you guard your purity) and to yourself that you will remain a virgin and wait for the one God chose for you. It's also a way to say that Jesus is the n°1 man in your life! It's not a must but getting your Dad's benediction is better for the simple reason that God tells you to honor your parents... ; )
Who is it for?
It doesn't matter if you 12, 18 or 25, as long as your promise is serious matured and you are willing to certify that your body is the temple of God, it's for anyone! :D
What is the ring for?
Well...it's just a simple visual reminder of your vow! ^^
So...anyway, any ring can stand for a purity ring! Doesn't matter if "true love waits" or a heart/cross is on it or not , it's your ring, your choice!
Mine is a very simple silver ring with an engraving inside: "I'm worth waiting for Ps.25.11" PS 25.11 was originally a mistake but suited perfectly my state of mind : "for the Honor of Your name O lord, forgive my many many sins." So, it's basically a one of a kind ring...but a lot of people do believe i'm married or comitted! (yes, you wear it on the wedding ring finger!) ; )
My purity ring! :
So, any of you have a purity ring on? How did you girls find it? What lead you to this decision?
