    11-23 ring return

    Well finally got my new camera cord in the mail yesterday after my 3 year old chopped the old one into pieces with scissors. Anyway, wanted to share this with you guys.... my wife told me about a friend on facebook posted that her husband lost his wedding ring while working around a big fire pit in their backyard. Looked pretty grim when I first got there because he thought it might of flew off his hand into the pit when he was throwing things in there, which has 20 years worth of metal in it (paint cans, bed springs, nails, etc.) But thanks be to God, it was the second target that I pin-pointed! His wife posted on facebook that she started praying when I pulled in the driveway and he came in with the ring like 3 minutes later. Amazing, and he had told me that he didn't have much faith in it as we were walking back there, and we were high-fiving a couple of minutes later
