Tuesdays Together (#19)

Welcome to TUESDAYS TOGETHER (in the WORD). I am so glad that you have joined us.

Our goal/purpose is that we are reading God's Word and we are sharing with each other a "nugget" of what we are learning. Join with us - at any time. We welcome your comments and/or your thoughts of what you have read and/or your link to your blog post. You do not have to be a "blogger" to join in on the encouragement and sharing together.

This week our reading (as posted on the sidebar under the button) was from Galatians 4,5 and 6; Psalm 42-43; and I Thessalonians 1,2,3.

Here is the main passage that I want to share with you today:

Galatians 6:2
"Bear one another's burdens,

and so fulfill the law of Christ."



I just want to take this time to tell you all thank you so much for bearing my burden with me during these heavy days. Many of you - my internet chums (I picked up that term from Lynnette) have prayed, and emailed, and messaged on FB. And it has really meant so much to me.


Then those of you who I know in the flesh :) - have hugged, cried, prayed, emailed, and messaged on FB. And it all has meant so much to me also.

So today, as we travel to visit with our Son and Daughter-in-love...

and then as we watch him load his bus on Wednesday...

We will wave. We will cry. We will wave our flags. We will blow kisses. We will take pictures. We will watch as long as we can see the bus travel down the road with our arms waving...

Then we will get in our cars and drive home. A long quiet drive home...

I know already that you will be praying. Today and tomorrow. Bearing my burden. All I can say is thank you. As you help bear my burden ... you are fulfilling the law of Christ. You are loving your neighbor (or friend - or blogging bud) as you love yourself. You are trying to put yourself in my shoes... and praying for me.
I need it ... and I feel it. Your words/comments bless me and wrap the Love of Christ around me! Thank you so much!

Now, your turn.

Remember... leave a comment... share your thoughts... and if you blog - link with us.

Also, please post a link back here so that others can come and read the other Tuesdays Together posts. You can use the button on the side bar if you would like.
P.S. Hal has posted a blog about departure too. You too can help bear his burden. Visit with him here... and maybe leave him a comment too. Thanks!

My thoughts and prayers are with you DeeDee.

I remember when my twin brothers were in the Air Force many, many years ago (during the VietNam War)and when we would drive them to the airport to leave, I would watch that plane for as long as I could, even at a young age. I cried so and missed them terribly. I can only imagine what it must be like as a mom watching her son.

Again, my prayers are being said for your son.


Hugs & Blessings,
Alleluiabelle

DEEDEE,
Praying for you today! I have a Scripture for you that is a promise that you can pray over your son.

II Thessalonians 2:3 "The Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and set you on a firm foundation and guard you from the evil one."

Many prayers to you,

Christy

I joined the meme today and feel blessed to have done so. Thank you for guiding us to be more faithful in God's Word.

I hold you and your family in my prayers. I have recently connected to your site and your son's. As a neighbor went off to Iraq for the second time, God gave me Matthew 26:53 to give to Jim and his wife.
"Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels?" A "legion" is a body of soldiers from one thousand to many thousands. Jesus calls the angels, legions of them, to protect and guard. I pray that for your precious son.

I have prayed for all of you several times today. And of course, I'll be praying tomorrow. I am so glad that we serve a God that is faithful! May the peace of God that passeth all understanding fill your hearts and minds today!
Love ya,
