This is an open letter to my grandson who just spent his 19th birthday in jail–for writing a misconstrued comment on Facebook. His bond is $500,000 ( yes, that’s 1/2 a million $). I’ve put a picture with the post, but they don’t allow pictures, drawings, books, or many other things to be sent to inmates.
I know it must have been a sad 19th birthday. But, know we were all thinking of you and whenever you get out, we will catch up on cakes and candles.
Here’s a prayer we say at school. I think it speaks to all our needs without being denomination specific. That’s called ecumenical–1. concerning Church unity: relating to, involving, or promoting the unity of different Christian churches and groups
2. involving friendship between religions: involving or promoting friendly relations between different religions
Grant me your strength, so I will have courage in every situation
Grant me your love, so I will never give up on anybody
Grant me your wisdom, so I will show others the path to success
Grant me your mercy, so I will forgive those who have hurt me
Grant me your peace, so I will find the best in everybody
Grant me your hope, so I will never give up
Grant me your joy, so I will be thankful for all my blessings
And, grant me your grace so you will always be at my side
It’s definitely summertime now. Mostly 95+ during the days. I put the AC on for the duration.
Love you, praying for you, Richard says stay strong.
