Tender Mercies and Liam's Baptism Day

What a special thing it is to witness your child choosing to do as Jesus did and be baptized. Liam is such a tender, sweet and good boy. We absolutely adore him and are so thankful for his example of humility and sincerity. He's just a young boy, but there is such depth to his testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and I love him all the more for it.

When he came home after his baptism he just kept saying what a wonderful day it was and that he wished he could relive it. It made me really happy to see him so happy.

I was also overwhelmed by the tender mercies of a loving Heavenly Father who helped me in my preparations for the baptism. It was such a busy week with company arriving and whatever else (I honestly don't remember everything-ha!) that it was hard for me to stay on top of things. Luckily, I was blessed to have amazing family right by my side and dear friends to help me in my forgetfulness, as well as save the day when I encountered last-minute hangups (broken printer). And to all of the children who sang "The Miracle" with Liam, I'll be forever thankful. The music was so touching! All in all, I felt an overwhelming amount of gratitude for all the help and support we received in both preparing Liam for baptism, as well for the help we received with the "extras" that made his day all the more special.

God really is in the details of our lives.
