A Rose By Any Other Name ...

Well, we have at long last decided on a name for our little girl! None too soon, I suppose, since the countdown is down to 27 days. And her middle name is actually uncertain now, though it'll be one of two options. We'll let you know that later. For now, at least you'll have a first name for her ...

Selah (SAY - lah)

It's a musical term found in scripture in the book of Psalms. Though the meaning is generally uncertain, according to Blue Letter Bible it means to lift up; exalt, and is a technical musical term probably showing accentuation, pause, interruption. I think of it as the moment in a musical piece when the music stops, there's a grand pause, the silence is deafening and then the music begins again. It's believed to denote a change in the flow/mood of the piece.

I would say this baby has definitely denoted a change in the flow of our lives! So there it is. Selah.
