Caleb Joseph was born at 3 pm on New Years Eve, a special blessing for Kerri and I and our family.
The name Caleb means "faithful, devotion, wholehearted" and our prayer for him is that he would follow his Biblical namesake:
"Caleb... wholeheartedly followed the Lord God" - Joshua 14:14
Joseph was also a godly and faithful character in the Old Testament. We were blessed to learn much about this man of integrity at the FRC camp this summer: his faith even from a young age when he was separated from his family, his resolve in the face of temptation, his trust in the faithfulness and sovereignty of God.
Of course we know that the characters of these two men were ordained by God, and we pray to our Father that he would infuse Caleb, and all our boys, with a strong, faithful character, a devotion to serving their King no matter where he takes them in their lives, and a deep love for their heavenly Father.
