"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.

A PRINCESS picture session

On the 21st, we tried to take some good pictures of Princess to put on her Brithday you can see she loves the camera! That is a good thing we had her and Boo's pictures done on Friday "professionally." I wanted one of Princess & Boo Together and one of each of them by themselves.
We tried the "birthday picture" first, she was holding a #1 and it took only one shot! I kept the first one!
As for the picture of them together, it only took two, it isn't great, but Boo wasn't feeling well that day. They really wanted him to sit up with his sister, the idea is cute, but he just isn't there yet. I was behind the picture table holding onto his overalls...trying to stay out of the picture! All in all, I think it went pretty well. The one of him by himself, I had him lay on his tummy and cross his hands, I think we used the second one. We had so many shots left we just goofed around for the rest of them! (I didn't keep any of them, but they have to use their quota!)

I wasn't really planning on getting their pictures taken until it was closer to Princess's real birthday, but my mom was here and I thought it would be much easier to accomplish that task with an extra set of hands. When we had it done in Feb. I did it by myself and that was a little bit more work.

Here's to hoping Boo gets better at taking pictures (sitting up) before November when we take our family Christmas pictures and his birthday picture! He will have to smile well for those! I don't think that we will have trouble with Princess, she is a ham!
