Back to Ruth

I really love the Book of Ruth. I keep coming back to it.

Like her, I am working in the fields (of graduate school), waiting for God's leading.
Like her, I have accepted the faith of my mother (her mother-in-law) and came to the land of God.
Like her, I am shown good favor, though I do not deserve it.

Last night I got the idea to read through Ruth in it's original language. I hear that the poetry is exquisite. Not that I could appreciate that high level of aesthetics as a beginner of Hebrew, but it is a place to start. It's only four chapters. It will be another project to add to my list^^ Now...where to find a Hebrew copy of the Tanakh?

After this, I really need to start my homework! :p
