    Naomi Widowed (Ruth 1:1-8)

    in Christianity

    TEXTS


    Now it came about in the days when the judges governed, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the land of Moab with his wife and his two sons. The name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife, Naomi; and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem in Judah. Now they entered the land of Moab and remained there. Then Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died; and she was left with her two sons.


    They took for themselves Moabite women as wives; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth. And they lived there about ten years. Then both Mahlon and Chilion also died, and the woman was bereft of her two children and her husband. Then she arose with her daughters-in-law that she might return from the land of Moab, for she had heard in the land of Moab that the Lord had visited His people in giving them food. So she departed from the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah. And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, “Go, return each of you to her mother’s house. May the Lord deal kindly with you as you have dealt with the dead and with me.


    THEMES


    Ruth was a young Moabite widow, who, because of her selfless devotion to her mother-in-law Naomi, and to Naomi’s God, gained a husband and a child, a place in Jewish history and became the great-grandmother of David and an ancestor of Jesus Christ. Ruth faces the problems of widowhood.


    Ruth commits herself to Naomi. Boaz allows Ruth to glean in his fields.


    Ruth asks Boaz to be her kinsman-redeemer. The kinsman-redeemer was the closest male relative who had responsibility to marry a widow within the family and thereby protect the interests of needy members of the extended family. Boaz negotiates with a nearer relative of Ruth’s. Boaz marries Ruth...

    Widowed in 2006, award winning comedian and New York City playwright Carol Scibelli penned her memoir Poor Widow Me (Pigeon Press, 2011) about the humerous side of widowhood. Regarding the loss of her beloved husband of 33 years, Scibelli writes, “While I was waiting for his death to sink in, I’d sit on the floor of my closet, talking directly to my husband’s shirts and pants.  They were unresponsive, but I knew in my heart that his Dockers missed me very much, too.”  


    Carol's often blogs about her life as a widow and her essays have been published in The New York Times, Newsday, and dozens of other publications for which she has received several awards.  She is a member of the New York Friars Club, an association of comedians and celebrities, where she heads the “Meet Your Fellow Friars” committee and writes for their newsletter, Friar’s Epistle.  She is also a founding member and Director of  Programs for the nonprofit Manhattan Playwrights, Inc.

May the Lord grant that you may find rest, each in the house of her husband.” Then she kissed them, and they lifted up their voices and wept. And they said to her, “No, but we will surely return with you to your people.” But Naomi said, “Return, my daughters. Why should you go with me? Have I yet sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands? Return, my daughters! Go, for I am too old to have a husband. If I said I have hope, if I should even have a husband tonight and also bear sons, would you therefore wait until they were grown? Would you therefore refrain from marrying? No, my daughters; for it is harder for me than for you, for the hand of the Lord has gone forth against me...

    Book and pay for a private reading with Yvette during the show & get bumped to the head of the cue.

    From Yvette's site: http://www.yvettehowell.com


    "My first spiritual experience involved a bright light, a voice, and the feeling of the most incredible enveloping love. It also involved the 2nd grade bathroom of my Oklahoma Grade School. From that moment on, during the next 10 years I spent in a religious cult, I measured everything I knew against the strength of that experience.  I still do. I love the question why. I love the answers I have received. I find people unique, interesting, and beautiful. I have studied Astrology since I was 11, Linda Goodman is my astrological hero.  Tarot drew my interest in 1995 as well as Reiki. I became an Registered Nurse in 1998.  I was widowed at 29.  I had my first and only child at 39. I found out I was pregnant 2 hours before I had her. I love to read and music makes me dance.  The most influential people in my life are my Grandma, my Mother, my Daughter and Louisa May Alcott. I have worked at making false teeth, nursing, and as a professional person locator."
