"Both Sarai and Sarah mean "princess," revealing Sarah's place as a mother of a nation. Do you know the meaning of your name? What significance does its meaning have for you?"
I was sad - because I never spend time think of the meaning of my name. I know people called me Ma-Ling-Su (which means potatoe in Mandarin) while i was in primary school.
Since I am now @ home, so i ran to my dad and asked him - what is the meaning of my name. He said: "Em....No meaning!" [What? my name is meaningless? -_-"] "The time you were born - I was looking for a name started with MAR since your sister named as Mary and I came across this name MARLENE, and think it sounds nice!" [ok, at least because it sounds nice :p]
So, i decided to do some research about my name! Marlene Lo! And I know I will not find this name in the Bible, although it is so called Christian name :)
This is what i found in a book @ a christian bookstore yesterday.
I will memorise this scripture and remind myself that GOD IS MY REFUGE and my ENEMIES can NEVER reach me!
Oh.. my godfather, Uncle Lau always reminded me that my surname is very special because before Jesus left, He said "And Lo (my surname, my surname!) I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen. *Matthew 28:20b
Yay! It is not too late to discover the meaning of my name. What is yours? :)
God bless you abundantly :)
