Amen!
I have been a bit out of sequence recently as the exhaustion has hit, but am back on track again today.

So, I return to Genesis, and Jacob marrying the love of his life and her sister.  The sister Leah has children, and a couple of the meanings jumped out at me in the first 4 children.  Not just were they named to help Leah at the time, but their names continued to mean something when these babies grew up and became heads of their tribes.

LEVI -  His name means attachment, connection.  Leah felt thet Jacob would feel connected to her again at this time.  Levi became the head of the priests ... they are the ones who helped the Jews connect, stay attached to God.

JUDAH - His name means praise.  She praised God that she had children from her marriage.  The tribe of judah is also the tribe that Jesus was born into ... the true reason to praise God.
