We've settled on a name for our sweet, new little one and we've decided to give him the name Job Hudson.
Over the last couple of years, God faithfully and sweetly brought us through some earthly trials, including a miscarriage between Graeme and Job. And although our difficulties were not of the same caliber as the Job of the Bible, they still served the mutual purpose of bringing our hearts closer to our God. The theology of the book of Job, the resolution of Job to stay steadfast in his pursuit of God, and his trust in the sovereignty and goodness of God--no matter if God sent him through difficulty or granted great blessing-- these things greatly encouraged us as we saw more of the heart of God displayed to us over that last few years.
We've chosen the name Job because it is a forever testament of God's goodness to us. Job is a gift to us-- a very kind gift from a Father who delights to give us such gifts.
And, my husband wanted me to add a very important reason why we chose the name Job Hudson-- we just plain love it! ( And yes, we did have Hudson Taylor in mind as we selected Job's middle name--I'll probably share more on that later. )
ps. this was my first Etsy purchase for mister Job and I can hardly wait to see him in his owl hat..............
