Isaiah 62:2

" will be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will bestow."
Isaiah 62:2

Do you know, God "gave" me a name for my new daughter before I even knew I would be adopting? I am keeping the name private until I travel, but as this process unfolds, I see more and more how her name is a promise, just like she is!

I will respect her Ethiopian heritage by using at least one of her names as a middle name (she will have at least 2 middle names.)

But God continually reminds me that while HE never changes, the whole process of following Christ is a process of us changing!

I think God likes a little change:) (Or maybe a LOT of change.)

I think it's an inside joke (altho totally true) that there are not any adopted children with less than 3 names :)

Although, I just was looking at an Ethiopian name site, and the name I have picked out is actually an Ethiopian name! So maybe I won't have to give her 2 middle names to honor her Ethiopian herritage?

Well, I'm sure God will make it clear.
