I became an Aunt for the second time on March 26th, 2021.
Her parents named her Evangeline. But they didn’t know about the Acadians and their love for a woman in a legend named, Evangeline. (My Dad is also a descendant of the Acadians.) Evangeline is, and has been a huge symbol of hope and, as this song says,
“Your name is more than Acadia, more than the hope of a homeland, Your name crosses borders, Your name is the name of all those that although they are unhappy believe in love and hope.”
This really really hit me hard, considering the times we are living in today. There is always hope, in Christ, we cannot give up.
