Ruth 1:15-18New International Version (NIV)
15 “Look,” said Naomi, “your sister-in-law is going back to her people and her gods. Go back with her.”
16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. 17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.”18 When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her.
Dear Father, There are special people that are in my life whom I want to always want to have in my life. I am thankful for my children. Thank you for allowing me to be a mom. I am thankful for my husband. Thank you for a godly husband. I am thankful for my parents. Thank you for giving me my parents for they are very special to me, and I am thankful for them. Thank you for my brother and his family. I am truly blessed with such a kind and caring family. Thank you. In Jesus’ Name I Pray. Amen.
