When God gave me the name of my aborted child, I was grateful, but I had no idea how He came to name him Matthew Dean.
Today, in one of my daily bible readings, Matthew 9:13 was written...
"It is mercy I desire and not sacrifice"
I recall one of our wonderful Rachel's Vineyard priest saying this about a year ago...and I was struck with its profundity.
Reading this scripture again, a light bulb went on...
MATTHEW!!! Matthew - yes, what a perfect name for you, my beloved son.
I still am wondering where Dean came from, but as with all other things in my life, I know God will hand me the answer when He does!!!
