Belated Sunday Black and White

Whatever your faith - I could not help but read these words this last weekend when we saw our first bit of snow in 3 months.  It was words from the Old Testament and I could not help but think of my dog, Abby Lab, who will never abandon me, and follows me, even out in the cold and the wet -always by my side.

"Don't ask me to leave you and turn back.  Wherever you go, I will go, where you live, I will live.  Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God." Ruth 1:16


  1. It is a lovely quote. We are more than happy to send some of our snow your way!

  2. First snow in 3 months?? OMD, mom is so jelly!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. What a beautiful picture - and such great words.

  4. YES Ruth showed the LOVE and DEVOTION for those who had become her family. Just as WE do when WE enter a family.

  5. Beautiful words.
    We just came from Lee and Phod's blog...don't think they're thinking positive thoughts about the snow.

  6. I've always loved Ruth 1:16.

    Aroo to you,

  7. wow it came late but it came... we got only hail yesterday ...
    the quote is wonderful...
