"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.

The Move

LIfe has been rough for the last week or so. We are in the middle of a move, and with two small children it hasn't been easy. This picture shows how much Princess has loved it! She is in her excersaucer (which she usually loves) and is just beside herself because she hasn't been sleeping very well. I guess she doesn't love her new room as much as we thought she would. She has the same crib, same bedding, and the same toys in the crib with her, but the room is different and she doesn't like spending any time in there. We keep trying none the less. What craziness it has been! Boo has done better than his sister, but also has been having some troubles with his new room. However, he loves his new bed. He had been sleeping in a craddle so far, because we didn't have room for a full size crib. Now that he is in a regular crib he is a happy camper, and rolls over and wiggles all over the crib. We never know what we will find when we check on him!

As much as you would think a family of four (plus two dogs) would LOVE to be out of the basement we lived in for over a year, we are not as excited about the piles of boxes all over the new house that just don't seem to be going away as fast as we would like. I do have to say that moving was much easier before children! It is funny that we have only had children for just under 8 months now, but almost half of our belongings are related to being parents of infants. Especially since we need two of almost everything. !

We are working as hard as we can to get the boxes out of the house and the contents of them where they ought to be. Will keep you posted!
