sharing something so sweet

When I first decided on Luke Shiloh's name, I googled it to see if I could come up with anything special. I wanted to see if I could find someone that had also chosen this name. That's how I found Jenny's blog. I was so excited to find this woman, this woman who loves the Lord as I do and gave her son the same name I've chosen to give mine. Jenny also posted about Claire Culwell, who is a speaker, an abortion survivor and one of my friends. I knew right then I had to contact her and share my story with her. After reaching out, she responded back in an email and we've been corresponding ever since.

It's such a special bond to share the name Luke Shiloh with her. And it's so beautiful how God specifically chose this name for her little guy as well. Their son was born at 11:33 in the morning, so they decided to look up Luke 11:33 a few hours after his birth.

"No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light."

Luke means light. How positively providential. I can only imagine the plans the Lord has for this child.

Jenny asked if she could share my story on her blog. I said yes. It's meant to be told. And I am oh so humbled and honored that she would do so. To God be all the glory.
