i have always loved the book of Ruth ... and i've always admired Ruth's commitment to the family she married into ... just like when we "marry into" God's family, by placing our faith in Jesus, The Messiah ... i want to keep going on that path - towards a land i've never seen before ... yet a land that will be my forever home ... that land? heaven ...
“ Entreat me not to leave you,
Or to turn back from following after you;
For wherever you go, I will go;
And wherever you lodge, I will lodge;
Your people shall be my people,
And your God, my God.
Where you die, I will die,
And there will I be buried.
The LORD do so to me, and more also,
If anything but death parts you and me.”
Ruth 1: 16 & 17
