"How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from you commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you." Psalm 119:9-11

Why do we try to conform God to our will? Live in His word and know true joy.

"Make me to know your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. Remember your mercy, O LORD, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old."
Psalm 25:4-6

God reveals the truth of our time and all time to us through Scripture.

"The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the tstimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple: the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb."
Psalm 19:7-10

All the laws in all the books in all the libraries of the world are but a footnote to the law of God.

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways ackowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."
Proverbs 3:5-6

To know and understand God comes not through our intellect, but through the wisdom given to us by the grace of God.

"My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart."
Proverbs 3:1-3

Don't measure success by society's standards. Use Christ as your measuring stick.

"The the LORD answered Job our of the whirlwind and said: 'Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding, Who determined its measurements - surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? Or who laid its cornerstond...?'"
Job 38:1, 4-6

When we measure God by our limited standards, we attempt to measure the elephant by weighing one strand of its hair.

"Philip said to him, 'Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.' Jesus said to him, 'Have I been with you so lon, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, Show us the Father?'"
John 14:8-9

Christ is God made flesh. If you want to know God, you must draw closer to Jesus.

Family Reunion

I grew up knowing how important family was. The day of my Grandpa's funeral was a wonderful day. It was difficult, because I now have to wait until I get to heaven before I see him again, but at the same time it was glorious! First of all, we all know how much Grandpa was wanting to see Grandma again. On top of seeing her, of course, was seeing his Savior. When all of his friends and family gathered togeter on that Saturday, there was a great family gathering. Isn't it sad how it takes a funeral to get everyone together? We were able to see many people that we had not seen for a while. Some of the people that I was really glad to see were the A Family, Mrs. Sharon A, J & L A, and S A (mom, two sons & daughter-in-law). The As have always been special people to our family, Mr. Wayne A was my Grandpa & Grandma's preacher for some time in the 80's. I was about 5, and considered J one of my best friends (he was a senior in high school at the time.) Anyway, somewhere in there, I have been told, that I was sharing with the world that I was going to marry J...things didn't work out that way. I did get to be in his wedding 14 years ago, and that was the last time I saw the As. They really made a difference in my life, and I am thankful to the entire family for teaching me some of the most important things that I have learned in life.

This picture is obviously not of the As. It is of my family though, I just thought it was a special picture and wanted to share it. My brother and his fiance, with Handsome, myself, and our children.
