Awakening a Keen Observer

Friday, October 22, 2004


I knew a young woman in college whose name was Joy. She was a beautiful delightful girl who smiled and seemed to be filled with that which her name She wanted all the people she met to know joy. She was bright and witty and lived into her name.
Names are important. Gladys McGarey, my modern law once delivered a baby as part of her practice the mother named Stormy. Gladys said...Oh please. The mom said well she is here now because I had a fight with the neighbor and she'll have to fight as well. What image does that name evoke.
Some names have meaning that link the individual to parents, grandparents, other generations. Some names it seems these days are brand new. People creating wonderful names for the most part for their children.
The Biblical stories show us over and over how important names are... Because they are changing people's names to have new particular meaning.
Is there a name you would like to have had? Did you have a name that fit you right at first or one you 'grew' into using?
If you could have any name in the world... what would that be?
Be well... God loves __________________ (your name inserted)
