What’s on replay this week? My Faithful Love. (I couldn’t find a good YouTube video of this song to share, but the link takes you to the album page on Amazon, where you can listen to it for free if you have Prime.) I love the words of the chorus:
“For I still know the plans I have for you,
And I will lead you in the way I choose.
Trust now my heart – My grace is still enough.
Forever rest within my faithful love.”
This sweet girl passed her driving test last Saturday, so we’re headed to DMV next week to get her driver’s license! Can’t believe this milestone is really here!!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Your daughter looks so excited! That’s great!
On the completely opposite end of childhood spectrum, I got some great ideas about entertaining my not-quite-toddler, especially building with toilet paper and paper towels and destroying pasta with a hammer. 🙂 She’s not quite ready yet, but it probably won’t be long. And I’m sure my older children would love to join in, too!
I appreciated Melissa’s post about one hour in a restaurant; I read it earlier this week and agreed. 🙂

Tracey! I’m stopping by rather belatedly with CONGRATULATIONS, both on your new blog look and tag line (love + love) and on your new status as mom of an official driver! I know teen drivers get a bad rap, and there’s really no getting around the fact that having a young driver amps up your prayer life like nothing else because you are TERRIFIED, but when yours is responsible (as I’m sure your daughter will be), it is actually mostly fabulous! The other day, my 18-year-old’s car was in for service, which meant I had to resume all the driving both for her and for her younger sister that Lydia normally does, and it practically took a spreadsheet (to say nothing of about 27 reminders on my phone) to cover everything. After only one day of it, I told my husband, “Whatever the bill is to get her car fixed, it is WORTH IT.” So, welcome to a whole new life, mama! 🙂
Thanks for your kind words about the new blog look! I have so much I want to learn and play around with here in WordPress, but since my family still wants to eat and wear clean clothes, I have to tackle it a little bit at a time 😉
Appreciate your encouraging words about having a teen driver, because yes – it is rather terrifying to think about her driving off on her own!! I can definitely see the benefits, though, once I get over the initial terror! 🙂 Glad to join you in the ranks of moms with teen daughters who do drive themselves where they need to go (and occasionally run errands for mom 😉
