"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.

Bridal Veil Falls

We had planned on a family picnic over Memorial Weekend, but it didn't work out. So since then we have been planning a family picnic for today, and we didn't really do the picnic part, but had fun together as a family any way! We started with lunch at the local KFC (picnic food, right?) and from there headed up the Canyon. The first stop on the trip is the Bridal Veil Falls. This is so beautiful, the pictures just do not do justice! The children seemed very intrigued with the water. We hiked down the hill, through the creek, and up another hill to be able to be at the base of the falls. You could feel a cool mist (feels real good on a 90+ degree day!) and there was even a cool breeze. Princess kept making funny faces because she didn't know what was happening! It was much easier to do the hiking before two children, but it is always worth it to stand at the bottom and look up as the water falls on the rocks.

Picture #1 shows Handsome & Princess looking at the falls before we started the short hike.

Picture #2 shows Handsome & Princess sitting on a rock before we crossed the creek

Picture #3 is of myself and Boo at the base of the falls.
And aparently I put the same picture for #4 & #5, but I guess that just goes to show how tired out I am from the day! The children are very tired as well. We also drove up to Terry's peak (the popular ski attraction of the hills) and there was still some snow up there!!!!! I didn't take any pictures of it, so you will have to take my word for it. The road to Terry's peak kind of made me chuckle, as it appeared to be Spring ~ the tulips & daffodils were just blooming and get this.....the lilacs were also just starting to bloom! It smelled so wonderful! Anybody that wants to see the beauty of the hills on there own, call us, the H Hotel is open almost any time!
