Names and meaning of names are so very significant. I love looking up what different names mean in my favorite stories from the Bible. When I looked up Hadassah’s name I was perplexed. Hadassah meant “Myrtle Tree”. I thought to myself, “Myrtle tree?!” Why was Hadassah named after a tree? One thing I did know, is that my heavenly Father is very detailed and intricate in his Word and that there had to be more to this! I knew I needed to search further.
Do you see this? This is a magnet with a picture of a Double Bass on it.
It belongs to one of my children. They received it about two years ago. I found it first in the car. I announced whose is this? I think at that point someone claimed it. I have found it in different rooms several times. I have retrieved it on the floor and in corners. In the hallway multiple times. All the while asking whose is this? Does anyone want it? About a month ago I almost threw it away-but somehow lost track of it????
This time of year is full of goals, aspirations, and the hope that the New Year brings. We should want the best of the New Year, to work hard and be better than we were, to be more loving, more content, to serve with whole hearted devotion in all that we do. Yes to all of this!!!
I was talking to my best friend the other day(my husband) in the kitchen. I asked him “Do you think people in Biblical times had goals? How about Job? Do you think he thought of things in this way?”
This Thanksgiving we traveled at night. There is something so surreal and quiet about it. There is a mixture of mystery and the unknown. What lies ahead? Will this stretch of road continue endlessly? All questions that come to mind as you are driving at the speed of 75 miles per hour.
