It was also called Mizpah, because he said, “May the Lord keep watch between you and me when we are away from each other.
Our son has been out of the military for a couple of years now and I turned into a bawling hysterical weeping mess when I found this picture just now. God’s protection was so very real to us during the years that our son served. Knowing that God watched between us while our son was in Afghanistan was the peace that made it possible to breathe. The emotions are so very strong even now. How the Lord holds us up is amazing beyond words. We have lived and understand the words, “May the Lord keep watch between you and me when we are away from each other.”
We are entering into a new separation. We will soon leave where we have lived and put down roots for the past 30 years and move 800 miles away. We have wonderful friends here who are more like family than just friends. We have a wall hanging in our home that reads, “Friends are family one finds along the way” and we have found many family members along our way. We will also be moving away from our sons. Once again we will cling to the promise that the Lord will watch between us while we are apart; our flesh and blood and the family that we have found along the way. We are so thankful that we can rest in the Lord. What a blessing to have the Lord between you and me.
