What's in a name

I sat here trying to name my blog...I felt the pressure of creating a witty title which would encompase the theme of our life. Whispers of Faith....whispers of faith...Whispers of Faith...yep, that's our name. 4 months, 7 days, and 6 hours ago our sweet baby Leah Faith entered our life. She was in our lives for a moment, yet holds our hearts for a lifetime. As I laid in bed waiting to deliver my stillborn daughter I kept thinking of how my dreams had been crushed. Yet I also knew that I had two amazing girls at home, waiting for their mommy to resume her "normal" life. I thought of all the statistics...the marriages that fail, the families that fall apart, the people who walk away from God...because their dream was crushed. The night before I delivered my sweet baby girl I thought of my need to overcome that statistic...the need to be apart of a strong marriage, a devoted family, a dedicated follower of Christ. That is the moment that the Leah's middle name came to me....FAITH....Faith makes all things possible. On March 20, 2008 at 2:02 pm my Whispers of Faith began. My journey through life as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, teacher. survivor of a stillbirth began. And on that day, I commited to honor my daughter, Leah Faith Davis, through my words, actions, thoughts, love, joy, peace, and faithfulness. I committed to allowing the whispers of faith to shine through me, and through my amazing husband Tim, and sweet girls Ella Christine and Caroline Grace. Today is the day I have decided to share my journey, my walk, my whispers of faith!
