    we can learn a lot from Ruth, because any minute of the hour the norms-of-life can occur in my or your life as it did with Ruth, there is the drought economic failure having to relocate deaths older plus single all these and more can come upon me and you unexpectedly. Never-the-less if we are Rightly rooted in Jehovah GOD, especially through JESUS, we shall be able to endure.
