This picture was taken in the fall of 2010 when my daughter was 16. She and I went to Missouri with her older brother to help him get settled in for the semester. I like her in blue.  :)

Scripture reference;

“1Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehemjudah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehemjudah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there. 3And Elimelech Naomi’s husband died; and she was left, and her two sons. 4And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years. 5And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left of her two sons and her husband. 6Then she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread. 7Wherefore she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters in law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah.8And Naomi said unto her two daughters in law, Go, return each to her mother’s house: the LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9The LORD grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept. 10And they said unto her, Surely we will return with thee unto thy people.” Ruth 1:1-10 KJV

The story of Ruth is one of my favorites. Ruth was the one that actually ended up going with Naomi. The Book of Ruth is Short; only has four chapters. I wonder how things turned out for Orpah? I don’t believe she is mentioned again…at least not in that book. They both loved their mother-in-law, and she loved them.

This post is geared especially toward women…. mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, and even close friends. Who has the Lord put in your life over the years? Who is there now? It really is a beautiful thing to have someone to love.  :)
