We named our sons with meanings, hopeful and prayerful that they would grow into them. Our first son has names that are both spiritual and earthly (Rock... is earth... ha). Our second we named fire and water (Rain). Both boys have first names that are basically opposed to the middle name but work together just the same. I mentioned in a previous post why we chose 'Rock.' Now, 'Rain' we chose because of the meaning "abundant blessings from above". No other reason like when we Chose Rock's name. However, we have been showered with God's love since his birth ... pun intended ;D
Rain has seen rain three of the four times that he has been out of the house, the first three in fact. On the way home from the hospital and both doctors appointments he has had. The most recent time we went out I was thankful for the beautiful weather because it was just a leisurely day out... but how is that for God showing a token of love for us? Also, Rain has bright blue eyes right now; I don't know if they will remain this way, but still. So just these couple of items show how God has blessed us and honored the name we chose. Small things to most people have such an awesome impact on our lives.
I pray you will be able to see the blessings God has put in your life this new year!
I will bless my people and their homes around my holy hill.
And in the proper season I will send the showers they need.
There will be showers of blessing.
Ezekiel 34:26 (NLT)
