On the 14th of this month, I celebrated 2 years of blogging! I was unfortunately silent upon the actual occasion, due to the fact that my dear grandfather was very ill, at that time.
If you would like to read my very first post, you can do so here. And of course, all of the archives are available for your inspection, they can be found on the Right hand column of my blog.
I look forward to another year of blogging here at Imprimis.

50I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”
55“Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?”56The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”
1 Corinthians 15:50-58
My dear paternal grandfather Jacob John “Johny” Kautt passed from this life into the arms of Jesus this morning at 5:15. He will be missed by his faithful wife of 53 years, and his 3 children, Becky, David & Jim. By his son-in-law Dennis, and 2 daughters-in-law, Julia and Naomi, and by his 10 grandchildren – Joel, Jason, Abby, Rachel, Caleb, Dennis, Phoebe, Johanna, Rowena and Jaden Jacob. And by a host of dear friends and extended family.
We were truly blessed to have him in our lives, whether for a long time or short. His passion to serve his Creator extends now to his two sons who are both ministers of the Gospel, in Texas and Germany. His love for God and family was contagious, and his compassion for people, exemplary.
I will miss him every day, I already do in so many ways – his smile that lit up the entire room, his laugh that made you want to join in, his hugs that I cherished, and his words of kindness and wisdom. But, I rejoice along with the apostle Paul that through his Saviour Jesus, he too has overcome death!
Please join with me in celebrating his life – and give God all the glory!
Soli Deo Gloria!
