My Birthday Boy

Luca Gabriell is five years old today. Luca means "bringer of light" and he has lived up to his name. We don't seem to have a sufficient translation in American English for Gabriell, which in Hebrew means (roughly) "masculine man of God." Another fitting name for our adventurer.

The number five is said to represent grace in the Bible 4 (humanity) + 1 (divinity) = 5 (grace). Makes sense when I think of young David and the fact that God is very deliberate.

More pics of our light-bearer and his birthday adventures to come.

And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in the shepherd's bag that he had, into the pocket; and his sling was in his hand. And he drew near to the Philistine. 1 Samuel 17:40
