given a name

Monday, March 7, 2011

Yesterday Jared had the opportunity of giving Evelyn a baby blessing.
It was a wonderful experience to ask Heavenly Father to acknowledge and ratify the desires we have for her and her eternal development.
Prior to the blessing, I thought mostly about the gifts I would like to ask for in her behalf but I  never thought about the fact that Jared and I were presenting her to God with her name - the name that she will be forever identified with.
Neither the name Evelyn or Rae have any family tie. I just thought the name gave her the elegance of a lady yet carried with it such dynamic power. I hope she owns her name and always treats it will integrity.
