So last week I put a post requesting thoughts on the title of the blog. The results were overwhelming, er, underwhelming. We had one reply. So, I thought about it, and came up with a few reasons why:
1. All my title options were terrible and you were sparing my feelings.
2. You dislike me.
3. You love the current name.
4. You dislike having to type out full comments.
I’m going to assume #4, because that’s how I usually am. So, I’m going to simplify things. A poll! Just select and press a button. Easy.
Let me explain my titles here.
God’s Child, Our Joy – This refers to a future post I will put up sometime. An adoption theme that comes up a number of times is that while we may be adopting, all children are God’s children.
Life Itself – Since I blog about our life, and how I ended this post.
All Will Be Well – A quote we have told Eva many, many times. A quote that applies to us as well. And a great song by The Gabe Dixon Band.
Time Will Never Matter – The first of two Jars of Clay lyrics. This is from the song Sunny Days, a particular chorus that applies to us :
So if you’re waitin’ for love
Well it’s a promise I’ll keep
If you don’t mind believing that it changes everything
Then time will never matter
Soon End In Joy – The second Jars of Clay lyric. This one is from God Will Lift Up Your Head (one of my favorite three Jars songs). I pared the title list down from an earlier list, and one word kept coming up in them : Joy.
Family++ – A little background for you non-programmers. If you have a variable that you assign a value, say family = 2, to increase the value you write something like this : family = family + 1. The shortcut for that is family++.
Now, the poll is non-binding, I haven’t checked if the names are available, but it will definately be helpful to me to narrow things down.
Thank you for you help.
