Sometimes there is a crucial moment during a wedding ceremony. This is the moment when the groom is asked by the minister or priest or rabbi to put the wedding ring on the bride's finger. There is a pause while everyone holds their breath—will the ring slide on or not. Yet the ring always manages to fit, no matter how nervous or anxious the couple may be. The ring, being in the form of a circle, symbolizes the idea of wholeness or union. In our life, no matter how nervously or anxiously we try to fit things together, there is always a point where everything comes together and harmony, order and peace prevail. As the ring always fits the bride's finger, so things will always fit together in our lives. We just need to be willing to assume that things will work out for us and they do.
