They Grow Up So Fast...

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, they say. Obviously, whoever said this didn't have a son. I love my son. His being absent has nothing to do with how fond I am of him. It just makes me miss him.

Caleb lives in England these days, serving as DTS staff at a YWAM base there. I couldn't be more proud of him, and couldn't be more excited to hear about what God is doing in his life.

You can read about Caleb's adventures at his blog. On top of all the other reasons that I have to be proud of him, he's also quite a talented writer.


  1. Couldn't find a place to post on Caleb's blog, but please let him know that I'm fighting tears! You've got one pretty special son and I'm so blessed by the way God is using him. Sending a hug for both of you :)

  2. Hug received and reciprocated, Amy! :) How are things going for you? Are you back in your own country these days?

  3. Roots and Wings, Rob & Wendy - We've gotta let them go! Remember when wen were that age? I thought I was so mature and didn't need my parents anymore. Now that we are the parents, 18 or 20 doesn't seem so grown up anymore.But you know that he is in the will of God, and that's the safest place to be.

  4. I opened this excited to hear about how rad I am too! C'mon dad! Don't let your favoritism be so obvious!!

    jk. love ya

  5. Hey Rob,
    I normally don't follow links to other people's blogs, but I took a few minutes out of my homeschool day today to read a few posts of your son's blog....what a great encouragement that was!
