Eighteen!

Our Calvin is eighteen!
He has been so quickly morphing from the little boy
he once was into the young man he now is.
Time marches on.  And, we are thankful.



Thankful for the years we have been given
with our second son.  Thankful for his sweet and tender heart.
Thankful that his desire is to do what is right and follow
the Lord wherever He may lead.  Thankful that he belongs to Him.

At the end of the day, that is all that really matters.


We love you, Calvin.  With all our hearts.
You are precious and a gift from the Lord.
He blessed us beyond measure when He gave us you.

Happiest of birthdays!

All our Love,
Dad and Mum XOXO
