I always wanted to know the meanings of my names

I was always curious what are the meanings of the names of my friends

I was so happy when I first learnt that the meaning of first name

It's just like the Simon Peter whom Jesus mentioned as the Rock to be his name.

Just A Little Rock


I'm a 'Little Rock' even has a whole town named by that

In the country famous for Romance and Food revolution as I learnt as a fact

But most of all I was happy thinking That I'm Jesus' Little Rock

Whom I keep my trust and faith the strong Jesus Christ my Rock.

Simply Learning :)

I love my first name but sometimes I didn't like it that much

Though it's called a Little Rock, I didn't feel strong like a rock that much

Whenever I felt ashamed, whenever I thought I'm not good enough

Whenever I couldn't handle the things that are too rough and tough.

I learnt that trying to hide myself from myself was the most difficult in one season

Though I wasn't afraid what others' thoughts about me but my own as a person

How I look at myself, how I want to be and how I treat others with the best of my ability

Whenever I failed I wished I could disappear or washed into the sea.


So I started introducing myself to others with my third name which means 'Grace'

Whenever I've been called in that reminds me of Jesus Christ's unconditional love and grace

Though at first when I didn't know someone who asked for my name and mobile number

I would say my third name and give my mom's mobile number.

Yes, good times! Me and my mom had a good laugh

When guys got scared when they faced our playful bluff

Anyway while watching one of my favourite Barbie movies

I think Jesus showed me that though I'm a Little Rock how He sees me truly.


Among so many other rocks, I'm just a Little Rock visible yet invisible

Like the true treasure inside of a geode, the imperfectly perfect Jesus' crystal

So He make sure to show my inside beauties as to ones whom He has chosen

I'm just a Little Rock growing in Him who chose me even before I was born :)

      This is the perfect read before bedtime. I'll be focusing on the inner beauty of those I love...maybe even my own.

      God's rock. This is the meaning of life. Lamb is gentler but some indomitable spirit is needed. Fire and backbone mixed with love. Sweet and loving inspirations, Rochelle.

      Your thoughts are inspiring. Your story reminds me of the apostle Peter who was named as such. A solid rock of good standing and character. He lived up to it, as I am sure you do too.
