Everybody’s Named Daniel!

Everybody’s Named Daniel!

I have been a little busy these last few weeks with two weddings that I helped to plan and direct.  My hope was that the proceeds from these events would fund the printing process of self-publishing this book, but God had other plans which I will share soon.

Anyway, so as I was directing these weddings, I started to see a common theme, the name Daniel.

Father of the Bride:  Daniel

Sound Tech (for BOTH weddings):  Daniel

Groomsman:  Daniel

And if it wasn’t their first name, then some people even had it for their last name!
I was surrounded with Daniels all these last few weeks.

And I really think there were a few more, but I realized two things as I kept having to interact with all these Daniels.

Number One Lesson Learned:  Daniel is a much more popular name than I realized when we chose the name for our son.

Number Two Lesson Learned:  While I was surrounded with living Daniels, I was constantly reminded of my Daniel in heaven.  Partially because I am have been amazed at God’s provision to fund my book project in ways I had not anticipated (again, more later).  But because in the midst of getting all the “T’s” crossed and the “I’s” dotted for these weddings, I was going over I Have a Brother with a fine tooth comb and making sure I had done everything needed to be ready to send it off…

And obviously reading the story over and over again, reminds me of the days when it really happened…and I am so thankful to be on this side of the journey, but I am so thankful for the Lord’s goodness to me throughout this journey…He has been so good and I am so thankful!

So that is where we have been these last few weeks.  I hope to blog a few times each week and share where we are on the self-publishing journey and also to share more about God’s goodness to us through life.  God is good – even when we cannot see what He is doing.

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
