By George, we know his name

The angels said...
"You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.  He will be great and will be called the Son of the the Most High... and His kingdom will never end." Luke 1:31-32,33

From bump to bump we have watched, waited and wondered... what is the due date, what sex is it, what will his name be? And in time, the press reported the answers. Princess Kate and Prince William with honor and joy, shared with the world their son... Prince George.  A family name and one fit for a king.   It reminds me of the beginning of another king.

The most anticipated birth ever happened over 2,000 years ago. There weren't doctors or the press to announce the pregnancy, but angels.   There weren't cameras flashing around, but a bright star in the East that led the Wise men to Him. 

What do these kings have in common?  Family names.  Names reveal who we are and whose we are.  Prince George bears his great-grandfather's name.  And, Jesus carries His Father name. He is Immanuel, which means, "God with us", and Savior.

Best wishes and blessings to both royal families... theirs and ours.  Thank You, Father!  I am so thankful to belong to You.

have a joy-filled day!
