One sweet family we know is on their second read-through of the Moody Family series. They are expecting a baby in June and know it’ll be a boy. So, naturally, they’ve been discussing baby names.
One day, the mom read the chapter where Mr. and Mrs. Parker had been praying about baby names. The next morning, the mom said she really liked the name Parker for a baby boy. That evening during their Moody reading time, they read about Mr. Gibson. The next morning, the four-year-old offered, “Mommy, we need to name the baby Gibson!”
After that, whenever someone asked him what the baby’s name was going to be, he would tell them, “Gibson!”
As the family drove to the store one day, the discussion of a baby name came up again. The four-year-old reminded them: “Mommy, we already know Baby Brother’s name. It’s Gibson!”
The mom said, “Oh, son, we’re going to keep praying about the name. We have to find out the biblical meaning for Gibson, if there even is a biblical meaning to it.”
“Mommy, I know what Gibson means!”
The mom then asked what Gibson meant. The son responded: “It means animal catcher!”
Rejoicing in Jesus,
Verses I read this morning in my Bible time:
“Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.
Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.”
1 Chronicles 29:11-13
