New Blog!

Amidst the Resurrection Sunday celebrations (that I missed because I was sick)...

Seeing my children all dressed (Julia made her and Sarah's dresses)...

A few herbs drying...

Birthdays (I don't like pics of me :(  )...

Fun with softball...


Playing and singing and listening on the front porch...

Taking in the beautiful scenery...


Some cordial sibling rivalry and play...

Cleaning the great room ceiling fans (with the cat on the 12 foot ladder)...

Fresh clean laundry hanging on the line...

And, my new laundry basket I found at a Goodwill store for $4.99 (I love it!)...

I now have a new blog!!! 
Well, a new background and header!!!
I'm so excited!!!
And a new button so you can add it to your blog for an easy link!

OK, please tell me what you think!  Do you like the new look?  The pics?  The button?  The white background?  I wanna know. :)

I also need to hear from you to see how beneficial my blog is to you in the blogging world. I do not want to be one to take you away from more important tasks, but I also believe God has given me wisdom and knowledge in some areas and I want to share it with you.  If I know it is not beneficial, then I do not want to waste your precious time.

So, please, to my 19 faithful followers and 6 bloglovin followers, let me hear from you. Most of my hits are spam, so I am counting on you real people to help me hear what I am to do concerning blogging...

"I delight to do Your will, O my God;
Your Law is within my heart."
(Psalm 40:8 )

"Rejoice always;
pray without ceasing;
in everything give thanks;
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
(1 Thess. 5:16-18)

Always Experiencing Him,
Jody

I love your new header! The white background really makes all your lovely photos stand out. I think your blog is just beautiful!

Thank you so very much! I was very happy with the design Andria (Storyteller) came up with, and she used all my pictures for the header; I liked that even more.
Thanks for commenting!

Julia did a fantastic job on those dresses! And I like the new layout.

Jody Dake said...

Thanks Sam! I thought she did a great job as well! Maybe Sarah can put some pics of the dresses without the sweaters; the sleeves are different. Glad you like the new look!
Tell all your family "Hello!"

I think it s great and I love the pictures at the top. Did you take all of them? They add a great touch. I like the white background too. She did a great job with it. I really enjoy your writing and it is one of a handful that I continue to read. You are a true blessing to me and I'm sure other Moms also. Plus I love seeing the fun stuff you guys do.

Thank you so much Missy! I thought she did a wonderful job as well.
Thanks for the encouragement, I needed to hear that. It is fun to put our work and play we do on the farm, but I want to be encouraging and helpful at the same time. I appreciate your kindness and friendship. :)

I like the new look! And what a good job Julia did on those dresses - they looked so pretty!

I always enjoy reading your blog, and I've never felt it was distracting me from what really matters, though there are many that do. I'm thankful for your blog.

Jody Dake said...

Thank you Ashlin! I appreciate your encouragement.

I had a friend who could not comment on the blog, and I'm not sure why, so if you cannot, you can email me, and I will try to find out why it didn't work for all.

Thanks for all your kind words.

Hey Jody!

Thank you for stopping by my Blog and leaving your comment and link. :) Your family is beautiful mama, and so are you! I look forward to getting to know you better. What state do you live in?

Thanks for your sweet words Kristy. They are an encouragement to me.

We are in E Tn and if you read much of my blog, you will find my children are the 5th generation on our family farm. It is a century farm and we love it.

You can send me an email as to where you may be moving and I will tell you more of where we are.
