Dear Abby Wedding Ring SDA - Be sweet to someone today DEAR READERS: Can you...
Be sweet to someone today DEAR READERS: Can you believe It's St. Valentine's Day again? Well, It Is, so here's my updated annual message: Be a sweetheart; call someone who's lonely and say, "I'm thinking of you." Or better yet, say, "I'm coming over to take you to lunch ... or to run some errands ... or to give you a ride." Visit someone in a nursing home or a prison. Say a prayer. Donate some blood. Adopt a pet. Will your eyes, your kidneys and all your usable organs to someone who can use them after you're gone. Quit smoking. Listen to your teen-ager. Write a fan letter. Tell your parents you think they're great. Pay your doctor. Spay your dog. Neuter your cat. Forgive an enemy. Register to vote. Hug a child. Listen to a bore. Send a donation to the Salvation Army, Care or to the charity of your choice. If you love someone, tell him or her now; don't wait until next Valentine's Day to be a sweetheart again.

WANTS A RING DEAR WANTS: It's true, there is no "wedding ,Ts ring" in the marriage ceremony of Seventh-Day Ad- - ventists. The church frowns on jewelry, but some members do not consider the wedding band "jewelry," and after , they are married they wear them on their own. It is ,;4 not a sin. -- You are apparently not a Seventh-Day Adventist, so '' I advise you to talk to a local pastor of the church and ask for some educational material about what is expected of members. , I
