“Hearing Your Name Spoken in Love”

March 25, 2019

Kenneth Carder is a retired United Methodist Bishop. He is caring for his wife as she battles dementia issues. He recently wrote this, and has graciously given me permission to quote him here for you today —-

We take for granted hearing our name called by our spouse. However, Linda had not called my name in several months. Then this week it happed twice! Unexpectedly, she said “Kenneth.” My heart melted! There’s something special about hearing your name spoken in love! I’m reminded of God’s word spoken through the prophet Isaiah, “I know you by name, you are mine.”

Two words: wow, amen.
