Happy Birthday Daniel!

Today Daniel and I will be going to our first Charlotte Bobcats game. They play Miami....should be fun! Daniel got season tickets from me for his birthday...(his birthday isn't until Nov. 20...). Good times to be had!

We would also like to congratulate our friends Bonnie & Robert...last night they had a baby girl....Raven Marie!

.....we are reading through the book of Daniel in the Bible...and we were in the first chapter yesterday. One of the things that caught my mind was that in Daniel 1:6-7, they were given Babylonian names,

1: 6 'Among these were some from Judah: Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. 7 The chief official gave them new names: to Daniel, the name Belteshazzar; to Hananiah, Shadrach; to Mishael, Meshach; and to Azariah, Abednego.'

Now...you may be wondering why this fascinates me. Well, if you continue reading the text throughout the book of Daniel, he is continued to be referred to by his Christian name, but the other 3 (Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego) are referred to by their new Babylonian names. Why is that? I have no idea...it's just something that spurred my curiosity. Hmm.
