Dedicated to parents of teenagers with newly begotten drivers’ licenses:

Dear Lord,  lead us towards those we are waiting for,  those who are waiting for us!
May all our movements,  all their movements,  be guided by your Light….
and transfigured by your joy.    Lonely and tired,  crushed by the separations…
and sorrows of earth,  we feel the need of calling to you and of pleading for the 
protection of your wings…..
Remember the weak,  you who are strong–

and bring us back together in due time…..
that we may again enjoy the fellowship we have together in You…
Lord, in Your mercy,   here our prayers.

Congratulations Caiti on passing your test and on increasing the fervency of your mothers’ prayer life!

  1. Yay Caiti!!! Congratulations!!! It’s nerve-racking, isn’t it! My son started driving a year ago and I’m still not used to it!

  2. Cute blog! My mom said her worst day as a mother was the day I got my license…she drove home with me from the license bureau and almost threw up!
    Hang in there…I love the comment about your prayer life!

  3. Oh, I am sooooo dreading this day. Thankfully, my oldest is 8 right now, and I have just as many years to brace myself.

    I don’t remember my mom seeming to worry about me at all, but I can’t imagine the leap of faith it must be as a parent to surrender those keys.

    And YAY! You’re reading Twilight. Even a lover of the classics can stray once in awhile. 😉 For nothing else, consider it a study in character development. So few authors are so amazing at defining their characters. So even if the story itself is twaddle, there are moment of literary genius within it!

    Thanks for saying hi! 🙂

  4. Hey Edie,

    Oh man, as I pulled up your blog I was thinking of my son Jaxon turning 10 this week (his party is tomorrow) and how I am dreading his getting older. I guess I can make it through this week…at least he’s not driving yet! 🙂 Thanks for making me feel better.

  5. Oh boy my kid is only two and I already fear that day! 🙂

    8 kids?! OMG… I wished! It must be so wonderful (and hardwork) having 8 children!

    You must be a super woman! 🙂 **
