Liam, the Singer

This is the day, this is the day that the Lord had made, that the Lord has made...

It's Sunday morning, and it's early. I'm trying to bury myself under the covers but there's a small boy next to me singing at the top of his lungs.

I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad in it...

I don't remember everything about last night, but I know I'm tired, and the baby woke up several times due to a cold she's battling. 

This is the day, this is the day that the Lord has made...

The last thing I want to do right now is wake up. I want to stay in my bed and sleep. It is the weekend after all. Isn't that the perk of the weekend, sleeping in? Though I can't remember the last time I enjoyed that perk.

I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad in it...

This boy of mine, he is so right. The Lord has given us this day as a gift. We need to be joyful, grateful, and take advantage of the beautiful day ahead. So I smile and walk out of the room hand in hand with him in search of some breakfast.

My God is so big, my God is so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do...

It's 9PM. It's been a long day. I'm exhausted and all I want to do is relax with my husband on the couch as we watch Friday Night Lights. But my son refuses to go to sleep without me by his side. He needs me to sit next to his bed and hold his hand. Usually I don't mind, but why does it have to be me every night?? When can I get a break? 

The mountains are His, the rivers are His, the stars are His handiwork too...

I've been feeling stressed lately. We have a lot going on. Getting ready to move. Fixing up the house. Figuring out how we will pay for new furniture. 

My God is so big, my God is so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do...

Once again, I have to smile. My son ministers to me without even knowing. His songs (which he sings all day long) are an encouragement to me. It makes me happy and proud that he is learning these simple truths...God's goodness, God's strength... He reminds me every day that I need to put my trust in the Lord, that I need to praise Him with every breath I have. I am thankful for the reminders and pray that my son will always be this full of joy and song and praise. 

My boy, future world changer.
