One of my favorite passages.

Ruth 1:16 And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:
Ruth 1:17 Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.

This passage was read aloud at our wedding. This passage is so inspirational because of Ruth's determination to stick by her mother-in-laws side and take care of her. I feel the same way about my father-in-law, Rex. If my husband were to pass away I would totally take care of him. He has taken me in as family even though I am only his daughter-in-law. Don't get me wrong we have butted heads in the past and I am sure that we will most likely butt heads in the future. The point is that I am committed to making sure he is taken care of.

My husband loves the book of Ruth. It's so wonderful when families get along and are committed to one another!

It is nice to have things in common with people on the internet so you can relate to one another. The longer I am married to my husband the better our relationship gets. The best advice I could give any newly married couple is to be saved and to laugh. Laugh at yourself, laugh at your mate and laugh together and everything will be fine.
