    • Dear Rochelle,

      Yes, it’s one of my favorites too. What a beautiful relationship they had and it all worked out for both of them. Ruth met Boaz and Naomi was blessed with Obed. Thanks. Am happy that you liked how I tried to tell it in 67 words. I wanted to find the perfect image to go with it.

      Am going to read your story about Ruth now.

      Shalom,
      Adele
