I praise Thee, O God of our Fathers, I hymn Thee, I bless Thee, I give thanks unto thee for Thy great and tender mercy. To Thee I flee, O merciful and mighty God. Shine into my heart with the True Sun of Thy righteousness. Enlighten my mind and keep all my senses, that henceforth I may walk uprightly and keep Thy commandments, and may finally attain unto eternal life, even to Thee, Who art the source of life, and be admitted to the glorious fruition of Thine inaccessible Light. For Thou art my God, and unto Thee, O Father, Son and Holy Spirit, be ascribed glory, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
Thankfully, we are home safe and sound from our trip to visit Father John's Baba seven hours away. There was bad weather on Saturday morning and we were in a car accident (along with six other vehicles). Our guardian angels were working overtime that morning since our car was one of two that wasn't totaled (one even burst into flames and was unrecognizable by the time the firefighters put it out) and, most importantly, not one person in any of the cars was injured! Glory to God!
