The Gospel According to Liam

This is the handsome five-year-old man in my life.  
He started kindergarten today.

He is an animal lover 
and a great story-teller.

I especially enjoyed his retelling 
of one of Jesus' most moving miracles.  
It is found in the 17th chapter of Luke.

This is how Liam heard in in Sunday School.

One time a long time ago there were ten leopards. 
They wanted to be human. 
They found Jesus and he turned them human. 
 The leopards were really happy to be human. 
Then only one leopard came back to say thank you to Jesus. 
He was a really good leopard.


 Amen, Liam.  Amen

Me too. I'll buy it. What a cutie! I love that first day of kindergarten. They are so Big! My little granddaughter is starting KDG this month also in Maryland. I want to cry. :)

What a beautiful boy! I love the way he heard the story.

How adorable is he??? That is such a sweet age and boy can they come off with some good ones.

I recently taught a primary class of 4 and 5 year olds. One little girl was visiting her grandparents and when I asked where her grandpa was she replied, "He left early before anyone else was up because he had to visit other "worlds" that day". He serves as the stake young mens president and was visiting other 'wards'.

Hmmmm, he is adorable and I do believe I see a bit of Larainy in that young man!

Kids are hilarious, and there really is nothing funnier than a kindergarten boy. Our resident kindergarten boy can come up with some humdingers.
I hope the other nine leopards/humans didn't return to their original shape from lack of gratitude.

Gotta love that one!

Brilliant! I can't believe it's been 3 years since my boy was 5... those 'innocent' moments are rare now - though he does condemn everyone on the stairlift ad for being lazy, does not get the concept at ALL.

A really good leopard, indeed. :) What a cutie-patootie.

That is so funny! The point from this story that I walked away with though is that whether you are a leopard or a leper, manners always count.
