Baby Caleb is Home

Dear Church,

All the Otte family is home, safe and sound and TIRED! Caleb Philip joined our lives very quickly Wednesday night, and he is doing everything a healthy baby should–eat, sleep, poop (many, many times). Mommy is recovering well, looking beautiful, and thinking that sleep will be nice (…in a few months).    Zechariah is taking on his role of Big Brother with excitement (most of the time). And Daddy is thankful to be home with his family for a couple of weeks.

Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement and visits and meals. We are blessed to call you Family!

We are also so powerfully reminded of the privilege, joy and responsibility of being parents in the Lord. Again! By God’s grace and with the love of a community of Jesus’ followers like yourselves, we pray that Caleb will treasure the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Psalm 145:1-4  I will extol you, my God and King,

and bless your name forever and ever.

2 Every day I will bless you

and praise your name forever and ever.

3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised,

and his greatness is unsearchable.

4 One generation shall commend your works to another,

and shall declare your mighty acts.
