A couple that had been married for 50 years sat reflecting one day. The wife said, “Things have really changed over the years. You used to sit real close to me. But you haven’t done that for a while.” “Well I can fix that.” said the man as he got up and moved closer to his wife.

“You used to hold me real tight.” said the wife. So the man wrapped his arms around his wife and asked, “How’s that?”

She continued to say, “You used to nuzzle my neck and nibble on my ear lobes.” At that the man jumped up from the couch and dashed out of the room. When he returned she asked him where he had been. “I had to go get my teeth.” Was the reply.


There are practical ways for you and I to demonstrate our love for one another. One of the most awesome women ever to walk this earth was a young pagan known as Ruth. She married into a Hebrew family only to see her father-in-law, her husband and her brother-in-law all die. From that point poverty began to consume her mother-in-law, Noami. Making the decision to abandon Ruth, Naomi packed for her trip back to Bethlehem. But Ruth would not allow that. She was determined to show her love for her mother-in-law. How did she do that?

stay tuned!!
