I spent a long time trying to think of a name for this blog. In some ways I just wanted to get to it and start writing, but I didn't feel like it was worth writing anything until I had a name to make starting at all worthwhile.
I wanted something that either described what I would be writing about, or described me (in a non-corny way). I knew I wouldn't be in this stage of life, being a student, forever so I didn't want the name of the blog to lock me into that, though in some ways I will be a student my whole life, as a student of God's word.
I ended up with "Reflections of a Lamb" because I've grown up knowing that my name means 'lamb of God'. When I looked it up on the internet I was told that Rachelle (a French name) means 'lamb'. Rachel (the Hebrew origin of my name) actually means 'ewe', but that's close enough to 'lamb' for me.
I also want to acknowledge that Jesus Christ is my shepherd, he calls himself the Good Shepherd in John chapter 10, and I am his sheep wanting to hear his voice and follow his commands.
My reflections will be about what I've been doing, but most importantly to me, they will be about being a lamb of the Good Shepherd, Jesus.
