OFF THE CUFF Writing
Kissing The Past Goodbye – is reflected in the wise story of Ruth where Naomi and her daughters-in-law all lost their husbands. In faith Ruth followed her mother-in-law Naomi to Bethlehem while Orpah went another road. The two women kissed their past goodbye while Orpha clung to bitter memories.
With my Maman’s heavenly help, I have kissed the past goodbye, because God foresaw all those closed doors. Now is the time to embrace God’s ‘perfect’ spirit of life. The winds of March will soon blow into Spring…where a higher calling for happiness awaits.
May this bouquet delight your senses and spring you on a refreshing vibrant path…and Happy celestial birthday, Maman Cherie!
