Caleb (2004 or 2005)

Eighteen years ago today, a Kautt child was brought into this world by the grace of God. Momma was telling me (just yesterday) how the day before Caleb was born, the midwife thought she found placenta previa. He was already two weeks late, and there was the danger of hemorrhage and possible death. A sonogram just a few hours before his birth revealed this was a false alarm.  Today as we celebrate our brother Caleb's eighteenth Birthday, we are very grateful to God that his birth came through safely. Some things I admire in Caleb are:

He is.....



...Light-hearted (in a good sort of way-- he loves to laugh)

...Earnest in his walk as a Christian

...Builder of friendships

We love you, Caleb Nathaniel, and we pray that God will bless you with many more years of life!!!

Happy eighteenth!!!
