On this faithful Friday, enjoy the One who made all of creation.

Sit, rest, rest in Him, be still, be still and know, take a break in this hot and humid weather, sip a glass of ice cold water, read His words and bask in His greatness.

Enjoy the blessings of another day, and breathe in the fresh air.  Take a deep breath of God Himself and let Him fill you with overwhelming joy, joy that only He can give.

"Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
Sing praises to His name, for it is lovely.
Psalm 135:3

Always Experiencing Him,


Ok, so I'm super, super, super late with this post, but I just had to go ahead and put it on, 'cause I didn't want someday for him to think I just forgot...hmmm...

Jamin graduated from our "Dake Homeschool Academy," aka Homelife Academy, in May of 2013.
We were so excited!  He was the last to graduate, so I guess I graduated as well...still some mixed feelings here, but I suppose that is very normal.  I still glance at the homeschool curriculum passing through McKay's, our all-time favorite bookstore!

Graduation Party!!!

Congratulations, Again, 
Jamin Marshall Dake!!!

Go here or over here to see "The Rite of Passage into Biblical Manhood" we had when he turned 16.

Always Experiencing Him,

How Majestic!

O Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is Your name in all the earth,
Who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens!
From the mouths of infants and nursing babes You have
established strength
Because of Your adversaries,
To make the enemy and the revengeful cease.

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;
What is man that You take thought of him, 
And the son of man that You care for him?

Yet You have made him a little lower than God,
And You crown him with glory and majesty!
You make him to rule over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
All sheep and oxen,
And also the beasts of the field,
The birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea,
Whatever passes through the paths of the seas.

O Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is Your name in all the earth!
Psalm 8
