So it's late at night and Im just listening to my Spotify Discover Weekly tunes and I must say, this week is a good playlist. It can be hit or miss but I'm definitely diggin this weeks list. I wish you could hear what my ears are hearing right now. (Im sure there is some way I can add a playlist on here but I haven't quite figured that out yet). I wanted to share with you all the meaning of Ellie Rose and how it came about. Before I get into that, I'm going to rewind a few years back.
Whenever I was pregnant with Eli, my mind was set that I was having a girl. No matter what the sonogram revealed. My mind was so one track minded, I wouldn't even buy boy clothes because I knew once he was born I would prove everyone wrong and that a girl would be born. Well.. as you know, I was wrong. While I was pregnant with him I picked my girl name which was Ellianna and Ellie for short. I thought it was such a beautiful strong name. I didn't have my Ellianna but I did have my Elijah which he is and was the biggest blessing I have ever had. Every night since he was a newborn, whenever I tuck him in and say his bedtime prayers, I have prayed over him that he would always be a light to those around him and that he would not be corrupted by the world but he will stand for what he believes. Not only have I prayed that for Elijah but thats also a prayer I constantly pray for myself.
Picking a name is one of the most important things you can do for your business, you want something that is a representation of the company. I went through name after name mixing and missing. Nothing had the right ring to it. I prayed and prayed asking the Lord what name to pick. He reminded me of the name I always wanted for a little girl, Ellie then Rose followed after. Ellie Rose it was. Ellie means "shining light" and the spiritual meaning of Rose is the strong, sweet scent of a rose brings to mind the powerful sweetness of love, which is the essence of God.
Don't you just love those moments where God shows up? There is no greater comfort or reassurance than knowing He is is the details.
