WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD-LOVE

"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. Ruth 1:16 (NIV)

 I have watched the Titanic movie several times as I am sure you have too. I have also read several stories on the Titanic with interesting facts. I read an interesting story about a lady that was on the Titanic named Ida Strauss. She and her husband had been married for many years. Story has it that as the ship was sinking Ida's husband of many years led her to safety upon one of the life boats. As she gazed up at her husband of many years she knew she could not leave him. She got off of the life boat and allowed her maid to have her spot. Ida then stepped out of the life boat and took her husband's hand and very gently said, "We've been together for many years and where you go I will go". Together, they went down in the Titanic.That is what I call "true love".

May this be a sweet and tender reminder to us that life is short. May we stop for just a moment and truly reflect on the love that we have for our spouse. Sometimes we tend to allow the dealings of everyday life to overwhelm us, smother us, and pull us from the very one that loves us so much. The one that is there for us day in and day out regardless! 

Make time TODAY to tell him you love him!

  3. Thanks Cindy for another beautiful message. Mr D took a 4day trip last week and I stayed home. After 50 years of marriage it was still a very special feeling when he returned.

  4. Hi Dear Cindy! This is a great post and I do love the story of Ruth. You're so right that life it fleeting and we never know when we'll be called home. The main thing is that we're ready to meet Jesus.
    Thank you for your prayers.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
