The Stay at Home Reverend: A Travel Blessing for Escaped Toddlers

With my apologies to the Celtic Christian tradition, a prayer of blessing for all of us who have children who are adept at escaping while we are busy in other parts of the house…

May the road rise up to stop you,

May my neighbors always have my back,

May the sun shine warm on you (seeing as you got out without any clothes on),

May the older kids tackle you softly,

Til we meet again when I manage to get my shoes on and catch up with.

And may God hold you safely in the palm of his hand (if not within the doors of the house).
