I'm going to seek His face, by fearing the Lord and keeping His commandments, for this is the whole of man.

Ah. This weekend I had the most wonderful, God-honoring graduation ceremony. It was truly a sight to behold, and I wanted to share some of it with our readers here at Stay-At-Home Daughters.

If nothing else, fast-forward to the message. It's about 25 minutes in.

Wow. I was speechless and overwhelmingly grateful to God when I heard the message preached on Saturday. The graduation ceremony was much more meaningful than I had expected and the message was given so straight-forward, and so eloquently that everyone listening had no means to contradict.

Our pastor gave Scripture to support everything he was saying, and praised the high-calling of women to be wives and mothers. No one could have thought of giving me grief about my decision to forgo college after that.

Since there was also a young man graduating this year, our pastor also preached on the role of the man as leader.

It was truly amazing. I’m grateful to God for such a wonderful church family, and wonderful parents who care enough to bring their children up in the fear and admonition of the Lord.

My mother, Lady Why, also put up a wonderful post about it on her blog. And my sister, Poppy, posted pictures.

While on this topic... Carmon, over at Buried Treasure, also re-posted a very timely article just yesterday on her blog. Head on over and take a look!

I listened to a lot of the audio, and it sounds like a great service! Congratulations on graduating!

It's great that you will be staying home in preparation for wife and motherhood! That's what I wanted to do, but by following my dad's advice, it seems as though God has other plans. May you have a great and blessed time continuing to learn at home!

Dear Flibby,

Happy Graduation! My older brother graduated a few weeks ago. It was nice and small and very honoring to the Lord.
