Micah William Wiles - Our thanks and photos.

Micah - This name is a derivative of the Hebrew question, "Who is like the LORD?"  Its purpose is to bring honor to God emphasizing that He has no rivals.
William - This is a family honoring name that has a meaning of "Will protect".  The latter part of Psalm 113 gives praise to God because He protects and provides for the lowly.
Wiles - Of German origin meaning "cunning" or "crafty"  that showed up in England in the 1500's and immigrated to the United States in the 1700's to settle in the Virginia area.   Our line has traced the Wiles name from Virginia to Cherokee, NC, to Kannapolis, NC, to Nashville, TN, and now to Washington, IN.

The following verses from Psalm 113 give the direction, purpose, and meaning we hope Micah to have in his life.
4 The Lord is exalted over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like the Lord our God,
the One who sits enthroned on high,
6 who stoops down to look
on the heavens and the earth?
7 He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
8 he seats them with princes,
with the princes of his people.
9 He settles the childless woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.
Praise the Lord.


Now, enjoy some of our favorite Micah photos from Christopher's camera in his first 6 hours here in Washington, IN.  May they move you to praise God for His good gifts!
