What's In a Number?

I just wanted to share a small part of a sweet email I received yesterday from a very special couple. They lovingly researched the significance of the number 22 (our number in the boy line) and shared all the many interesting aspects of this number... I can't tell you how much I was encouraged by the thoughtfulness of this email! Here are some cool things about the number 22....(Make sure you read the very last part :)


22 is itself the aliquot sum of two numbers 20,38. (equaling 58, which is our original dossier :)


There are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet

Psalm 22 (22nd in the Book of Psalm in the King James Bible), described by the New American Standard Bible as the "A Cry of Anguish and a Song of Praise", is the Psalm to which the crucified and dying Jesus makes reference, citing its first verse in Aramaic (Matthew 27:46; Mark 15:34)

Sports: 22 is the number of players on the field in a Football (soccer) match, and also the number of players on the field at any one time in an American football match.

The exact perfect number to be in line: while waiting for the most perfect little boy in the whole world.
