Why the Name?

Thursday, July 09, 2009

I've got a confession to make. It's nothing extreme. As with a lot of the writing I do, when I named my blog the words just came to me (Through*For*By). Since I liked the sound of them, I kept them even though I really wasn't sure exactly what they meant or where they came from.

Sure, I knew that meditating on Scriptures like Colossians 1:16 melded these words into my heart and mind. But at the time, the why behind me choosing these words for my blog was a mystery to me.

Last night, out of nowhere, they came into my head. All three, one by one, along with meaning. 

For anyone wondering, here is the simple answer to the meaning behind the title of my blog:

 I live THROUGH God, FOR God, because I was created BY God. 


  1. This answers a longstanding but unspoken question of mine--I satisfied myself at first by assuming you were infatuated with prepositions. (-; Then, I guessed the deeper meaning, but the clarification really brings it home!

  2. LOL! Glad to have answered your question Lauren. :) It just so happens that I happen to have terrible grammar. I suppose this explanation may have cleared up my reputation a bit!

    Now if I could only expand my vo-cuh-bill-ary.........

  3. So, I have a question sparked by Lauren's comment:

    Do you know what a preposition is??

  4. loved the explanation!

  5. How lovely! Wonderful meaning.
