Oops, yes, I have mixed up Naomi and Ruth in this summary! I can't do anything about it on Twitter and I can't even change it here until later because I'm away from home.

I've made a spelling mistake or two before but this is my first proper error. Oh well, I suppose it was inevitable!

[UPDATE: there we go - fixed!]


V 11 ......All the people of my town know that you are a woman of noble character.
May it be so with us and with His leading we can be.
