We have 8 fantastic grandchildren! That's all of us at Christmas,even my hubby, whose head was cut off!
I love the names their parents have given each of them...
When they were born, we didn't really know them yet, so the names were special, but still only names, some of them different than what we were used to...
NOW... I can't even imagine any name but the one that belongs to them. They have grown into their names... that is who they are. Isn't it funny how each name fits the person? In the case of these 8, not only is each name perfect, we smile at the mention of their names. We picture their faces, their personalities, the special ways each of them express themselves, the funny things they say, and the many things that make them uniquely them.
God knows my name.
He calls me His child.
When He made me, He knew who I would be. He knew that I would grow into my name. He knew that my life would be a journey, and that all along the way, His plans for me were already known to him. I wonder how many times I have made Him smile... or how often His eyes filled with tears, as he has watched me make choices in my life, good ones and bad.
I'm so glad that my name is known to Him, and that it is already recorded in HIS book, now and for eternity.
