February 13: Get A Different Name Day

A day to be called Cordelia, not Anne and certainly not CARROTS!

Get A Different Name Day, celebrated every February 13, is primarily for those who despise their names. Today, they get to pick a different name, and everyone has to go along with it (at least for the day 🙂 ).

Today, take a moment to remember Mr. Pain from 1 Chronicles 4:10. Jabez is the Hebrew word for pain. He begs God to change his name, so he will no longer be a pain to all who know him.

Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.
