A Graduation that would please the Lord

Last week, my cousin Josh graduated from high school. His parents have homeschooled him since about fifth grade, I think. We went to his graduation ceremony, and it was so special! But more importantly, it honored God!

Josh opened the ceremony in prayer. He is such a good example of a Godly young leader!

Each of the graduates (there were nine in all) performed in some way, whether they played the piano, or the guitar, or the mandolin, or sang! Josh sang and played a song that he wrote. Some of his friends backed him up.

Then the graduates were presented with their certificates. Their parents spoke a little and said how proud they were of their son or daughter.

There was a reception afterward, where we talked, and laughed, and ate cake! Josh plans to go to the Community College in Prescott next year. I thank God for the fine young man he has become, and I pray that he will continue to follow after the Lord and seek him always!

Psalm 119:9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to your word.

I love hearing your comments! As you leave them, please keep in mind Ephesians 4:29: "Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear." Thank you!
