To Be Called Sarah

One time, I asked my husband, “If I were to have a traditional English name what would it be?” He told me that it would be Sarah. Actually, my name is Somiya Chapman. Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon did not receive this name from my parents and then sign it on a piece of paper; that is what Alex and I did with Dr. H. Sean Moon.

Actually, my name was given to me from the mind of God. Last year, I discovered that in Arabic, “Somiya” means to “elevate.” Wow! Isn’t that incredible…what a nice surprise. It has many very plentiful meanings. So, I’ve decided to give you a love song today. God may try to relate with human beings but if we forget to love Him what good are His efforts to be in our lives? Let’s remember, God is like a wild cowboy who loves us with a tender heart in everything that is pure and right.

God also said to Abraham, “As for Sarai; her name will be Sarah. I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of people will come from her.”

Genesis 17:15-16

Enjoy the song!

-Somiya
