"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.

Very Tired!

Sundays are always big days at our house. These pictures of the kids are proof! Handsome is usually the most tired at the end of the day, as he gets up the earliest, studies for a while, prints the church bulletins & prayer lists, makes sure the church is ready, gets himself ready, and makes sure I am up and going in time. I only have to get myself ready and then pack the diaper bag and dress the kids. All of this happens before Sunday School starts at 9:30!
Handsome teaches Sunday School
then he goes on to preach for the morning worship service. We usually either do something simple, or run to McDonalds for luch. We come home in hopes of getting the kids to take a nap at the same time so we can MAYBE have a nap ourselves.
This particular Sunday, we were able to have a little one before having to get ready and meet up with some friends. We spent a few hours with friends, and then we went out for a weekly date around 8:45 pm! The kids were starting to go down hill, but we did manage to pull everyone together so Mama & Daddy could enjoy their meal for an hour! Once we arrived back home, we were able to get Princess into PJ's, but Boo was just too tired, he slept in his clothes. We couldn't help but take a picture, Boo doesn't sleep with his behind sticking in the air often, but it sure is cute when he does! As you can see, with Princess, she just stretches out and goes to sleep! What a day!
