Jared \j(a)-red\ pronounced JARE-ed.
The name Jared is a Biblical name from the Hebrew name יָרֶד (Yared) or יֶרֶד (Yered) meaning “descent.” In the Biblical Book of Genesis, Jared was the sixth link in the ten pre-flood generations between Adam and Noah; he was the son of Mahalaleel and the father of Enoch, and lived 962 years (per Genesis 5:18). The meaning of the name is “he who descended” (Hebrew root YRD). In the Book of Enoch it is explained that Mahalaleel named Jared because during his lifetime the angels of the Lord descended to earth. The name could also be understood as “he who shall rule” (future tense of the Hebrew root RDH, as found for example in Psalms 72:8).
We have a Jared.
Who is the 5th link in a 30 year marriage of a carpenter and his bride; he is the son of Daniel and the uncle of a Cutie-Pa-Tootie, who has lived 24 years.
And he means many things (to those who are blessed to know him):
infectious smiling man.
peacemaker for all, (albeit grand-stand.)
of all things cool.
He’s our creative-spirit
despite being shy, he’s certainly no
He’s our Jare-bear,
the one and only,
and spending a day with him is like
living with a roaring lion.
Set your path.
hugs n’ blessings for all the ways you make us smile!
