Kaleb's Road

Last Saturday Kaleb was baptised. So many family and friends came out to support us. It was awesome. Kaleb was a little nervous at first, but the spirit was so sweet and he was so good we had a great day. It was so wonderful to see Kaleb take that first step toward his own salvation. What a great Kid. The day started out a little hectic. It was hard to make certain everything was ready and everyone was fed. Then we went to the church early to set up for the luncheon afterward. The spirit in the church slowed everything down. It was nice to just get everything taken care of. The service was simple and sweet. Grandma Barb said the opening prayer. Grandma Doris lead the music. Brother Brian Blotter conducted. Grandpa John gave a talk on baptism. He stressed the importance of keeping the covenant Kaleb was making. After that Kaleb, Tavy and I sang a song about baptism which I cried through of course. Then Kaleb was baptised. His face was so radiant as he came out of the water. He was so pure. After the baptism I gave a talk on the Holy Ghost, then Kaleb was confirmed a member of the church and given the gift of the Holy Ghost. The closing prayer was said by Grandpa Scott. We had lunch with family and friends from the ward. It was so kind of everyone to support us and I am so grateful for the influence Kaleb is too me in my life.
