Song of Solomon 8:6

6Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame.

“Always” is episode #579 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by John Fornof and Marshal Younger, and originally aired on November 19, 2005.


Aubrey Shepard prepares to leave home for college, but her little sister, Bethany, doesn’t want her to go.


Aubrey Shepard prepares to leave home for college, believing God has led her to the right school at the right time. Emotions run high for her mom, dad and especially young sister Bethany Shepard. The family prepares, mostly with tears in their eyes, and sends Aubrey on her way. There is just one problem, they can't find Bethany.

When Aubrey's mother calls, Bethany pops up in Aubrey's car! She has come to protest Aubrey going to college. Aubrey goes back home to drop Bethany off, and decides to stay at home for another year. Her dad takes her into the garage, and shows Aubrey her old toy horse. He says that just like the horse, she has to move on. She decides to go to college, and the family, no matter how much they miss her, always know that she loves them.
