What. I love my damn ring.

doctor: "That is a beautiful ring. Is it your name?"

me: "No. I bought it from a roommate. She said
it says something about 'whither thou go, I will follow'...
Something like that."

doctor: "Are you Jewish?"

me : "I have no idea."

It's from Ruth in the Old Testament. But Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me."

I think this is one of the most beautiful stories in the Bible.

Hey there, thank you for that link.

Yeah,I remember my roommate saying it was Ruth's wedding band. You know, I had no idea that Ruth was talking to her mother-in-law Naomi when she vowed not to leave. Am I reading that right? That's cool.

Yes, you are reading that right. The rest of the story is pretty cool too. Ruth ends up being the grandmother of King David.
