This weekend I was able to visit my Mam and Dad’s graveside. The grave stone had been removed from the scene to have an inscription added about Mam who passed away last October. I wanted to view the gravestone to confirm that the inscription had been done to our requirements. I think that it is quite self explanatory with the exception of the word right at the bottom which is “Mizpah” – this has a special meaning, in fact my Dad had a wedding ring band which had this word inscribed on it.

This is what it means:-

“And Mizpah; for he said, The Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.”

you can read a more detailed explanation here

Feels like the end of an era!

One thought on “Mizpah”

  1. The end of an era in this life but praise the Lord your mum and dad both live on in glory which is by far the better place to be… i.e. the beginning of a new era and one without end…

    God bless you Jim.
