Ryli had so many challenges in the womb. Amidst a list of names that mixed David’s names and mine together, we had Eve, Lydia, and Eva. None of those really hit the spot.
When I discovered that the name Ryli meant “Victorious,” I was compelled to use it because it left me with hope believing that this little baby would be victorious in her health issues and in life.
I am pleased to tell you that of the many health issues and challenges Ryli has faced, she has become victorious over
every one of them. Thank you sweet Jesus.
We had to fight hard for this child from the beginning–and each time we have seen victory for Ryli.
Her middle name was after my father’s sister, who died young due to childhood leukemia. It tore my grandmother apart when her daughter passed and my paternal grandmother died of a broken heart about five years after her own daughter. I have her journal and it is heartwrenching to read her struggle. I like to think they are both in heaven cheering Ryli on and I will say that I am so thankful that THIS Ravaye has been victorious in her health challenges and will go on to do in life all the things her namesake never got the chance to.
The Lord must have huge plans for Ryli’s future. The devil doesn’t bother with people who don’t have big things to do. Ryli has fought hard to get to where she is today and her father and I couldn’t be more proud or grateful for the overcoming work He has done in her life.
