    I remember listening to a song that had lyrics similar to the list of names in your blog post. It’s nice to read your post again–and hear the melody of that song in my head.
    My favorite name of God is Jehovah-Shalom, the God of peace. I often pray that over friends when they are stressed out or fearful or hurting.
