I mean, I look okay with it in (more like on), right?
I don't know, maybe it's just my teenage rebellion and angst coming out, but, honestly, I haven't wanted anything as much as I want my nose pierced right now. When I have my "nose ring" on, I feel pretty. I look down, and I always see a little glimmer of silvery, sparkley, shiney light. I guess, it reminds me of what I'm worth to God. I mean, yes, the bible verse says "Who can find a virtuous woman, for her price is far above rubies.", but I don't have any ruby nose jewels. But still, a diamond is a precious jewel, and the verse says that my price is worth far more than rubies. And diamonds. And sapphires. And emeralds. And any jewel or gem. But the problem is, I forget that sometimes. I forget that my value doesn't increase only because I lose 5 extra pounds, and my value doesn't plummet when I have an extra brownie. My value doesn't decrease in God's eyes, it can only grow. But what I do to my appearance isn't what adds to my price. It's what I do to my spiritual life that matters. I need to start reading my bible more, not obsessing over my hair, especially on the days that I don't even go out! I need to fix my relationship with God.
Now! You're probably wondering, "how does her need fix her relationship with God relate to her wanting a nose ring?". Because getting my nose pierced will be a constant reminder of my worth in God's eyes. It will remind me of who's opinion is the one that really counts. I just wish that my dad would understand that.
