A Prayer for My Son / A Letter to Him – Jason Esra Turned Eight


Dear Jason,

Now that you are in second grade, you are already able to read and write in Spanish and German. You speak fluently Spanish and some English as well. I am proud of your abilities to be “at home” wherever we are and being open to open our home for others. God has gifted you with joy and creativity. Thank you, Lord, for that!

Depending on the time of the day, you are a secret agent, a musician, a ninja, Manuel Neuer…wow! Thank you for keeping our lives excited.

May the God of creation, the God of all creativity, guide you in our future adventures as family as well as you as an individual with daily growing capacities for understanding the world and its Creator.

We love you so much!

In Christ, Amen.
