"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.

Farmer gets a Wife 7-21-07

It was a beautiful day, hot, but beautiful. We arrived at the church at about 2 pm. Just in time to see my brother's best friend T show up for pictures. We didn't think he would be able to make it to the wedding at all, and he made it in time to get into his tux and be IN the wedding. I know that was very special for my brother! I wasn't able to get the best pictures of the wedding, but we did have some of the best seats in the church. We were the guest book attendants, so we were in the foyer until the wedding started. We decided with the children we probably should just stay back there. Handsome ended up taking care of the kids so that I could watch the entire ceremony with no interuptions...he is soooo sweet! The first picture is while Sandy was singing "How Beautiful" just after the lighting of the unity candle. The second picture is the exchanging of the rings. (I think Wife is putting Farmer's ring on.) The next picture is of Handsome feeding Boo before the wedding started. The fourth picture is of Pancames and Princess, can you tell mom is really excited about her son getting married?

The last picture is of Handsome with the kids during the wedding. He is the best daddy in the whole world! I also have another picture, but I couldn't get it on the blog, but it is of Aunt W with three of her grandchildren across from my husband. By the end of the wedding we had two of my cousin's wives, my aunt, my husband, and at least 8 children at the back of the church!

It was a beautiful day. The reception was great, Mom & Dad along with Wife's parents did something for the bride and groom that was pretty special. They had a DVD put together of pictures from the time they were babies, to their dating times, and ended with their engagement picture. M (T's girlfriend) put together some special music to go along with the pictures. It was very special. We didn't stay long after the supper was completed, with two children the rest of the evening wasn't really for them. We do wish Farmer & Wife a lifetime of happiness and blessings though!
