Originally named Sarai, The Lord renamed her Sarah, meaning princess, after she had married Abraham. Sarah became the mother of Isaac and through Isaac the grandmother of Jacob, who God renamed Israel. Sarah is therefore one of the ancestors of all of the Israelites, and of Jesus Christ. In God's Own Words:

"And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her." (Genesis 17:15-16)

"I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her"

Sarah was about ten years younger than her half-brother Abraham (they had the same father, but different mothers, see Genesis 20:12). They were married before they left Ur, located in what is today southern Iraq (i.e. both Abraham and Sarah were Iraqi, an incredible irony considering the state of Middle East tensions today) for a journey, under The Lord's guidance, to a new land that would become the focus of God's plan of salvation for all of humanity (Genesis 11:29-31).

When Abraham and Sarah remained childless into their old age, Sarah took it upon herself to have children through a surrogate, her Egyptian handmaid Hagar. Sarah made the arrangement despite the Lord's earlier promise to Abraham that he would have children through Sarah (see Genesis 17:15-16, quoted above). The result of Sarah's initiative with Hagar was that Hagar also had a son of Abraham, Ishmael, who became the progenitor of many of the Arab people of today. The family conflict between Sarah and Hagar, and their sons Isaac and Ishmael, never ended; the struggle between them continues to this very day.

Sarah lived to the age of 127 years (the only female in written Bible History in which her age at death is recorded) and died at Hebron, southwest of Jerusalem.

Other spellings include: Sara and Sera from what I've seen, but we all know the correct way of spelling it *wink* *wink* Thanks......Sarah~~*
*~~Sarah in Hawaiian is pronounced "Kala" also meaning princess~~*

a beautiful, intelligent, sexy, caring, amazing girl who can roll out of bed in the morning and still pull off perfect. her smile and personality brighten my day, regardless of how bad it's been before i see her. her eyes are the color of perfectly cut emeralds. they catch every ounce of light, not to mention your attention. they are as beautiful as the soul they mirror. her lips are the softest that you will ever have the pleasure of kissing. her kiss itself is amazingly sensual, yet packs the force of a fireworks display. every time our eyes meet my heart skips a beat and i lose my breath. there really are no words to describe someone so perfect in every way, but this is the best i could do.
sarah is so perfect

Means "princess" in hebrew. Sarahs are fun to be around and dont care what others think about them. They are loyal and trustworthy and have a good sense of humor. They are bold, brave, and attractive, but certainly not perfect (then again who is?). Overall you'll want to spend your time with them and get to know them better. You learn things about yourself through them and appreciate having them in your life. Still dont be fooled, they can have an attitude if they dont agree with something- mostly its sarcasm so either accept the remarks or just ignore them.
ohhh sarahh.

A very beautiful woman. Too beautiful for words. Shes absolutely stunning and perfect in every way. Her beauty will never be matched. Everything about her is beautiful. She has too many great features to name all at once, but her tummy is one of the cutest things in the world. At the same time, her hair is just gorgeous. Also, she has a cutest nose in the world. There are too many features to name. Shes very strong and independent. She will always have you smiling and keep you laughing. Shes just so silly. I don't know anyone that I care about more than her. Shes truly an original. I would fight for her. I would die for her. Shes my heart, my soul, my existence. Shes my everything. Shes me best friend in the entire world and I wouldn't rather anyone else to take her place. Shes the sweetest girl with a voice that could end a war with just one sentence. I tell her everything. Either good news or bad news, shes always there to support me. Shes knows everything about me and I know everything about her. All I want to do is make her happy. Even the image of her sad breaks my heart. Shes not the type of girl that you just pick up at a bar and bring home. She'll enchant you in every way possible. She'll leave imprints on your heart that will never go away. We've had too many wonderful memories to count. I never stop thinking about her. I love her. I love everything about her. Ive never been happier. There will never be another girl like her, trust me. Shes perfect.
Guy - Hey man, you know Sarah? What's she like?
Me - ...oh don't get me started

A girl who is able to make you think that the last day you spent together was the best day of your life, only to prove you wrong the next time you see her.
You and Sarah spend a day together and you go home thinking, "This was the best day of my life." only to wake up the next morning and see her again think, "Man was I wrong about yesterday."
