To Our One and Only Son

Calebblog0calebblogcalebblog6

To Caleb, our one and only son.

From the very first time we laid our eyes on you, we knew you would bring us tons of joy,

just as your sisters do.

You have truly been a blessing to our family with all of your adventurous ways,

your creative imagination, your gentle hugs and sweet “I love you’s.”

We are so thankful that God chose to make you our son.

You have been created by God, given life by Him.

Always remember that you live and move and have your being in Him!

Every man’s chief end is to glorify God

and enjoy Him forever

and we pray this for you!

Our desire and prayer for you is that you will be a man of God,

a man of prayer

and that by the grace of God that you will obey the

Great Commandment

to love God with all of your heart, mind and soul.

We pray that you take part in the

Great Commission…

Take up the Gospel son,

explore it’s depths, climb it’s heights

and seek to bring others

with you on your journey.

May Christ be your Dearest Friend!

May He empower you to be a faithful follower

and if it be in His will, someday a loving husband and father,

a true friend, a helpful brother, a caring son and most of all a

humble servant….all for His own glory!

We pray that you find your strength in the Lord to resist the pull of the world and that you

draw closer to Him in times of temptation.

Society would like to tell you what being a man should look like

but we pray that you search for the true definition of man-hood

in the Word and that you do your best to follow in the footsteps of the

“God-man”, the only perfect man,

our Lord and Savior.

We don’t know what the future holds but we know who

holds your future and that He has great plans for you!

Our prayer is that you have a great hunger for the things of God and an even greater

passion to work for His Kingdom

and exalt the Lord with your life.

May you find everything that you’ll ever need

in Him!

We bless you with God’s everlasting love, peace, and joy.

We bless you with our love and support always.

Walk in the fear and admonition

of the Lord,

Uphold Righteousness, Abhor Evil, Speak Truth,

Show Grace, Love Honestly

and Worship God with All of Your Life!

Love Always,

Mom & Dad
