Day 13: New Name


6 years ago today our names changed

from

Mom to JoJo

Dad to HoJo

Sister to Aunt

Brother to Uncle

Daughter to Mommy

Son to Daddy

&

Baby to EVERETT.

From the blessed moment

when our first born delivered her first born

& from the

hearing of the words that mother and child were doing fine,

tears flooded my heart as my baby was okay

& her baby was okay.

Nothing else mattered at that point.

Boy or Girl?

Big or small?

Who does he/she or look like?

Anticipation to hear the great news grew.

But the answers to those questions didn’t matter in that moment

because mother and baby were fine.

My heart will never be the same as it was

kissed from heaven the moment

I held my first grand~baby in my arms.

An indescribable feeling that is forever tattooed

on my heart.

Oh can you imagine

how Mary felt

when she held

JESUS

for the first time.

THE BABY

who was born

to change everyone's name.

From Lost to FOUND.

From Anxiety to PEACE.

From Hopeless to HOPE.

From Fear to FAITH.

From Bitterness to FORGIVENESS.

From Doubt to TRUST.

From Despair to JOY.

From Rejected to ACCEPTED.

From Insecure to SECURE.

From Insignificant to SIGNIFICANT.

From ________ to ____________.

What NEW NAME do you need to wear?

It all begins with

THE BABY

who changes your name

because that is why HE was born~

"For a child has been born—for us! The gift of a son—for us!

HE'LL take over the running of the world.

HIS NAMES will be: AMAZING COUNSELOR,

STRONG GOD,

ETERNAL FATHER,

PRINCE OF WHOLENESS.

HIS ruling authority will grow,

and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness HE brings" (Isaiah 1:9 MSG)

And the moment you look into

THE BABY'S EYES

& ask HIM into your heart

your name immediately changes

& so does your heart

because

"Therefore, if anyone is in CHRIST, he is a new creation; old things have passed away;

behold, all things have become new" (Corinthians 5:17).

NEW BIRTH!

As my heart still explodes as I think of this day 6 years ago,

when I never could have imagined what

the impact a little BABY could do to me,

but why would I be so surprised

as

it took a

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

that happened 2022 years ago

to change my heart forever~

JESUS' BIRTH~DAY~

that

is Life changing for all who

embrace

HIS BIRTH

for HE is our

BIRTH~DAY GIFT.

So today as I celebrate my grandson in my hearts,

I will be filled with joy

just because

GOD took the time to knit him and to knit you & I

in our mother's wombs,

for that is what LOVE does.

So why don't we all

celebrate the greatest of

all BIRTHS~

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS"
