Writer's Block: A rose by any other name

Do you like your birth name? If you had the opportunity to change it, would you? What new name would you choose?


Photobucket 

I like my name well enough. It might be simple. It might be common, but at least it’s not…

 Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina, Oaka, Poka, Loka!

Names are huge.  They can make or break you.

Celebrities know this. That’s why they change their names.

 

Norma Jean Mortensen Baker became Marilyn Monroe.

Walter Matuschanskayasky became Walter Matthau.

Gladys Leeman became Kirstie Alley.

Jennifer Anastassakis became Jennifer Aniston.

Joyce Penelope Wilhelmina Frankenberg became Jane Seymour.

 

There is a name, though, that will never change.

A name that is above every other name.

A name that, one day, will cause every knee bow.

That name?

Jesus.

 

“God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phil 2:9-11

This makes me think about Crystal Cordelia. Cordelia was a nice addition to her name.

Speaking of Cordelia, I haven't watched Anne of Green Gables in a while. Going to have to check that out!

Y'know there really isn't any sweeter name than the name of Jesus, just saying it out loud or thinking it brings a peace to my heart.
