My real name is Andree and apparently it creates issues for many. They don't know how to pronounce it and how to spell it. Funnily enough I thought it would be easier than my other name, which I why I started going by this name.
Anyhow, as you know I've moved and have made some friends. Yesterday I was at Track practice with the Little One and decided to work out. I caught up with a friend (let's call her M) who had recently had a baby and a group of us women were standing around chatting and admiring the baby. A guy walks up and starts talking to M. Out of the blue she makes a sweeping gesture and says, "And this is Andree," really emphasizing my name. He then walks away. I turned to one of the other ladies and said, "Was that M's husband?" she said yes, and then M says - "He thought you were Andre and wanted to know why I was texting a guy name Andre; I was making it clear that you were Andree, a female." I wondered why I got the special introduction.
So apparently my name is causing marital discord!
A Song that Always Make Me Think
This song was sung by the Youth Choir at our old church; I was convicted listening to it, I often wondered if any of the singers were.
Hopefully your name is not causing problems in other's relationships and you're living in a way that pleases God.
