Slava Tiebe Boze!
« on: March 24, 2013, 06:34:54 PM »
Glory and Thanks be to God!

Instead of the usual requests for prayer through rough times that we get in the Prayer Forum, I thought I'd lighten things up with a "Slava Tiebe Boze!"

I passed my motorcycle safety course this afternoon and will finally be street legal to ride my Stella (150cc vintage style shifter scooter) on the streets of Baltimore and beyond.  At almost 38 years old, taking a test...any test...is not my idea of fun, so getting through the class and passing the skills test and written exam was a most nerve wracking experience.  I cannot remember being so nervous, even in my first driving test some 20 years ago!  I was praying to our Lord, the Theotokos, and Sts. Brendan and Christopher throughout which helped to calm me down considerably, especially during the exercises that I just wasn't quite getting.  Not too long ago I would have been a frustrated mess totally angry with myself but was able to be patient with myself and listen to my instructors.  We're not supposed to ramble here, so I'll just end with:

Glory to God!
Slava Boze!

Congratulations!  :)
"This is the cross - to become dead to the whole world, to suffer sorrows, temptations and other passions of Christ; in bearing this cross with complete patience, we imitate Christ's passion and thus glorify our God the Father as His sons in grace and co-heirs of Christ." --St. Symeon the New Theologian

Amen
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Glory to God. Congratulations and keep the shiny side up. Always good to have another brother in the wind.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Glory and thanks to God for helping you with your studies and exam.

Lord, have mercy and keep Schultz safe on the road.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

The right words for "Glory to God" would be "Slava Bogu." "Bozhe" is the form for the vocative case. "Bogu" is the dative case.
