1Sa 7:12 –
Then Samuel took a stone and set it between Mizpah and Shen, and named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the LORD has helped us.”
 Definition
Ebenezer = “stone of help”   

     1. memorial stone erected by Samuel to mark where God helped Israel to defeat the Philistines – north of Jerusalem

     A couple of weeks ago my wife Abby had to write a descriptive essay for her english class. She had written about our past and the storms that occurred in our marriage, which turned out to be a memorial, an ebenezer, in our lives. Something we can look back to and say God was here, God gave us victory.

    Here is the essay…the-storm

All I can say is WOW! The journey,I could feel all the excitement and frustration. Your words made the story so real. Thank you for sharing your “Ebenezer” with us all. (I see it as a Standing Stone in your personal growth as a writer too). I look forward to reading more… not only here but in printed form. I am so proud of you. Go and grab that gold ring.
