Purity symbols and another 16 year old

Our youngest is turning 16 on Tuesday!!! 
How did that happen already?! 

When our kids turn 16 we give them a purity ring or other symbol of their choice. 
(the "geeky but elegant ring mentioned there, ended up needing to be sent back once we realized Joy was allergic to sterling silver! So, she's on purity ring#2!) 

Andrew and I joked that what he would REALLY like is a purity PEDAL
As in, an electric guitar pedal. We had lots of laughs as he was trying to come up with a way to connect purity and electric guitar. ; ) 

He has chosen a watch for his symbol and we plan to have it engraved with a verse on the back.


And today it hit me what verse that should be:
Matthew 26:41!!!

"Watch and pray so that you do not fall into temptation." LOL
 How great is that?!

WAY back when, I had a purity necklace. I posted a bit of our love story here several years ago. : )

Have a great weekend!
