Did I mention we had some make-up posts to do? Well, Liam actually turned 5 in May, and yes, we are just now getting to a post for him…
We are grateful for this little guy. Seriously, the age five is proving to be my favorite with the hilarious things said, the sweet actions, and the deeper conversations. Liam is a very, very kind and loving boy who has a huge heart for people. He loves his friends, family, and well, every stranger he meets. He is always making up songs, games, and stories with a crazy imagination. He warms hearts with his hugs and by saying things like, “Bye! I love you so much! Have a great day!” He is quick to help out around the house with whatever he can and is a great big brother.
The thing that has brought us the most joy this year with Liam, though, is his increasing understanding of his sin and need for a Savior. We don’t yet know the depth of his understanding, but we are often blown away by the things he says. We especially have gotten to see God’s work in Him through the miscarriage I had earlier in the summer. I have a post written for later with more details, but for now I will let you know he had a difficult time with the whole thing. However, his eyes were opened to God’s goodness in a way we could never have imagined. We are praying that God gives Him a full understanding of the gospel soon and calls Liam to Himself. Below is a copy of the first song he wrote that showed some amount of understanding. He has written many more since. 🙂 Silly pictures follow.
Translation: Powerful God, You are powerful. Oh God, we forgive. God, we sin. We cannot go on ourselves. Sin, God we need somebody, God. God, can we come? “Yes, you can come. Oh, come.” Oh, God. God, you are God, God-Man. Oh God, we sin. Oh God, we need somebody.
