My Names for Yesterday
Yesterday I mentioned that I’d let you know what name I had earned through my attitudes, words, and behavior throughout the day. I realize you don’t really earn a name in one day, but over the course of time. But I came up with a few anyhow.
One reader, Courtney, offered a link in her comment that leads to a great web site that gives meanings for all sorts of names. This link specifically leads to Hebrew and Jewish names and their meanings. Check it out if you dare and consider what names you have earned. Here’s what I came up with based on what I did and how I lived just yesterday:
Leah – Weary (I was exhausted by 7:00 pm, from what I do not know!)
Moria – My teacher is God (I did spend some time studying my Bible yesterday and my kids and husband know I love doing this. He teaches me so much each day!)
Oran – pale one (I went swimming at my friend Rosita’s house yesterday and since she has dark skin she would probably say I am a pale one!)
Sachiel – angel of water (at least I like to think I looked like an angel as I swam through the water! Probably not…)
Zebulon – home (I spent a lot of time doing home things yesterday – laundry, cooking, ironing, etc.)
Hiking with My Pal
Last week I did a 6.7 mile hike with my hiking buddy and friend, Kim. Since it’s July in Arizona (and elsewhere, of course) I decided we should head up to the top of Mt. Lemmon in the Catalina mountain range for our trek. It’s about 30 meaningful and significant degrees cooler up there! So we drove about 5000 feet up into the mountains – no small feat for these two windy road wimps – and got to our destination of 7,410 feet at about 9:00 that morning.
