A Prayer for My Son / A Letter to Him – Joel Caleb Turned Seven



Joel Caleb,

now you are already in school. Time is passing quickly and I am joyful to see you growing up in such a beautiful manner.

You are a young boy full of adventurous thoughts and pioneering spirit (this might be the lot of the oldest in the family).

Sometimes I am perplexed by your thoughtful actions—you are concerned about others and how they are doing (most of the times)—and then I think to myself: “Well, that is Joel.” And indeed, this trait is deeply ingrained in your structure. It is a delight to see that! 

May the Lord grant you many more opportunities to show your care for others and may such behavior steer people’s attention to the true love out of which you yourself take such treasures.

We love you!

In Christ,
