A Steadfast Faithful Love — 10 Comments

  1. Thank you for sharing this incredibly beautiful post! I had never looked into the meaning of “Hesed”. Knowing the meaning of that word just adds so much more clarity to God’s amazing, perfect, eternal love for us!

    One of the best books I ever read on marriage is called Sacred Marriage where the book’s main focus was that a married couple should conduct themselves in their marriage as a visible testimony to a dying world of Christ’s love for the church.

    Happy Anniversary!

    • Karen, that sounds like a great book! I’m so glad the meaning of “Hesed” has added a deeper meaning and an all encompassing picture of God’s love for us. I know it touched my heart.
      Thank you for stopping by.

      From My Heart to Yours,

    • Thank you, Sue, for your comment on what touched your heart in the post. So glad you dropped in today.

      From My Heart to Yours,
      Janis

  2. I have never heard of “Hesed” love. But from what you have described, it definitely is an illustration of your marriage. You both are faithful, steadfast and loyal to each other and it is reflected to those of us who know you!! This was a beautifully written testimony of your love to each other and God’s love for us!!! May God continue to bless you with His “Hesed” love.

    • Thank you, Cecelia! Your words warm my heart because I know you’ve seen us as our best but also you’ve witnessed those moments where a lack of consideration was exhibited. Thank you for saying that our faithful, steadfast love shines out to others. May it draw others to God’s “Hesed” love.

      From My Heart to Yours,

  3. Happy Anniversary! I’d not heard the word “Hesed” – and I am so glad you explained it – this visual “God would bend down to them and restore them to Himself because of His “Hesed” love.” – it just went straight to my heart! The older I get, the more I love the Ruth-Boaz love story and all its layers! We are blessed my husbands who strive to love us in such a way!

    • Thank you, Maryleigh! And a Happy Anniversary to you as well! The word “Hesed” moved my heart to experience God on a much deeper level. I’m so glad you found that word also touched your heart! Our church concluded the study in Ruth this week with a powerful look at how Naomi’s life in God took many twists and turns just like our Christian life is not a straight pat but a beautiful switch back road. (I’ll have to get the exact quote~I want to use it!)
      Glad you came by!
      From My Heart to Yours,

    • Thank you, Heather, for your thoughtful comment and for taking the time to stop by. I hope I will provide uplifting words here for all of us to grow.

      From My Heart to Yours,
      Janis
