Hello, all you lovely people. It makes me sad to think that this concludes this short series on Ruth. I hope whatever I’ve been able to share over the last few days has been an encouragement to you.
Reading through this list again, I can think of friends who exhibit each one of these traits to a “t”.
Those that are awesome about sending thank-yous, those who’ve got a fire in their belly and won’t give up, those who will speak their mind no matter what the cost–and possibly make you laugh in the meantime. I’m sure you’ve got those people running through your brains right now. Thank God for them and the challenges they present in your life to be like them. It’s been great sharing this time with you and thanks for hanging in there with me. Ah, lest I miss giving credit where it is due, again, these traits of Ruth were taken from this book.
Hey, if you come back tomorrow, I might just post one more Ruth teaser. Happy reading!
