A Letter to Diane

Hello Diane,

I stumbled upon your blog when I was reading the Names of God Bible version and had to google “el Kanna”. At the time, your blog post came up tops on Google—this means, according to the interweb, all things pertaining to “el Kanna”, you are the go-to authority. You wrote an amazing post about God and his jealousy. I took a picture to remind myself of this memory: an introduction to a new name of God, el Kanna.

I have always known this, but in church, I heard something knew as the preacher man spoke and this is my way of sharing.
