listen...as she tells her story
She can see their spirits lift
As she tells about a little boy
Who gave a very special gift
A little thin ring made of metal
With fish carved all around
A Christian ring that signified
She’d been lost, and now was found
She wore that ring everywhere
Cherishing it with love
It was given to remind her
Of her savior, up above
While sitting in church one day
They passed the offering plate
Ashamed for she had so little to give
She was in an embarrassed state
When the plate was passed her way
Her expression was one to behold
For as she placed her money in
That ring...was turned to GOLD!
She looked at her finger In amazement
While trembling with surprise
She couldn’t understand it
Or believe her very own eyes
She believed it was a sign
Which made her feel...so glad
God appreciated the gift she gave
For she had given all that she had
It’s no wonder she tells this story
Showing everyone her ring
But God knew there would be doubters
Therefore, on the ring...he left one thing
When the ring is taken from her finger
There’s a thin strip...tarnished all around
To remind her of the state she was in
When she was lost, and not yet found.
Many people heard of this miracle
Since this ring had turned to gold
Along with the many wonders of God
With his love and mercy to behold!

Judith shared this beautiful poem with
me she said, "MY SISTER
WEARS THAT RING PROUDLY....I HAVE
ANOTHER THAT WAS BOUGHT WITH IT AT THE
SAME TIME....IT IS "BLACK"
WITH AGE....22 YEARS AGO."
