7 years ago today our names changed
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
for the first time.
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
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,
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
"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).
As my heart still explodes as I think of this day 7 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
it took a
that happened 2023 years ago
to change my heart forever~
JESUS' BIRTH DAY!
And HIS BIRTH DAY
is LIFE CHANGING
for all who
for HE is our
BIRTH DAY GIFT.
So today as I celebrate my grandson in my heart,
I will be filled with joy
GOD took the time to knit him and to knit you & I
in our mother's wombs,
and that my friend is
what LOVE does.
So why don't we all
celebrate the greatest of
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS"
