Happy Birthday Caleb!

Our little six year old is now seven! Precious Caleb celebrated his birthday yesterday on the 31st of August, and is growing way too fast. In the month of August, he must have grown several inches, because a pair of dress pants that he wore on the 7th were too short for him on the 29th! Whoa!
Every since his birth in 2003, Caleb has given us much joy and laughter. We like to say God gave him to us during our hard times in order so we could have joy in midst of our trials. He has kept us entertained with his goofy faces, quirky comments, and infectious laughter. His love for music and singing is clearly evident in his stage presence and performance. He has blessed and given joy to many who have seen him sing and play.
It has been truly a blessing to see how God has been working in his life this past year. He had struggled immensely with his relationship with Jesus Christ, and now is fully confident in his salvation and faith through his Lord and Savior. How amazing to see the hand of God working on this young boy's heart!
Caleb, I love you very much. You are loved, accepted, forgiven, and blessed. God has given you many talents; always use them for His glory. Let your life be a light to all people and always fight the good fight. You are in the Lord's army!
Finally, "Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9.
Happy 7th Birthday Caleb!
