The Journey Begins -Paint Party Friday
Naomi's husband and two sons have passed away. She has been living in another country and determines she must return to her homeland. Naomi has, in her bitterness, told her daughter-in-law Ruth to go back to her own people.
But Ruth clings to Naomi and cries out, "Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people and your God, my God. Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. Thus may the LORD do to me, and worse, if anything but death parts you and me."
This story is a beautiful picture of friendship, loyalty and love. Though they endure great hardships, in the end Naomi finds hope and meaning in her life and Ruth is given the desire of her heart. It is a great picture of God's goodness.
Have a great weekend and Happy Paint Party Friday.
