Morning by Morning
"The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught. The Lord GOD has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious; I turned not backward." Isaiah 50:4-5

What’s In A Name?
One wonders why parents pick certain names for their children. What on earth was the minds of the parents who named their babies, Dweezil and Moon Unit, or how about the little girl named Aquanetta, after the hair spray, or the little Gates boy who was named Pearly by his parents? I actually met Pearly Gates who was always invited to banquets just so that he could be introduced. I strongly suspect that I was named after Christopher Robin in Winnie the Pooh, although I’m not entirely sure. Certainly Winnie the Pooh loomed large in family lore, and my uncle Ian was always referred to as Uncle Eeyore.
