We were quite taken with these wonderful icon-style prints - the detail is gorgeous and the printing superb.
"Where you go, I will go; where you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God.” (Ruth 1:16)
These famous words of love and devotion were spoken by the Moabite woman Ruth to her mother-in-law, Naomi, a Hebrew widow. After the death of Naomi's husband, she became especially close to her sons and their wives - notably Ruth. Both of Naomi's sons died and she and their wives became even closer. Naomi encouraged them to go forth and find new husbands as they were young. But, this is a love story beyond husband and wife. Ruth encouraged Naomi to join them and finally Naomi became grandmother and guardian of Ruth's children as they grew. And, Ruth became the great-grandmother of King David.
Of course there is much more to this story, but we have always been taken by such stories of family commitment and love and the truth that families are not made of simple bloodlines after all. We are all connected in one manner or another by everyone who has touched our lives.
These lovely holy cards are a bit lighter weight than some others we offer, but the printing is absolutely outstanding. They are a convenient size for use as gifts or bookmarks - measuring 3-1/8 by 4-5/8 inches on heavy cream-colored paper. The back is blank except for a faint colophon at the bottom, leaving plenty of room for custom imprinting with your own message, or a place to write a note to a friend, or to inscribe an appropriate prayer
