"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.

It a BIG one!!!!

5 years ago today, I married Handsome! It is amazing how fast time goes. It is amazing what one day can hold! August 10th 2002 was a very full day, two lives became one, I married my best friend, he and I shared our first kiss (in front of almost 200 of our closest friends and family) , and our children were not there to see it!

Handsome had his brother as his best man, and his other two groomsmen were Farmer and Handsomes sister's husband. I had Handsome's brothers wife as my matron of honor, and my other two bridesmaids were my aunt and Handsome's sister. Our flower girls were NL & AD, our ushers were Byron (friend), Chad Vis(friend), & my cousin.

We are so amazed to be here, and see where the last 5 years have taken us. 5 addresses, 1 house project, 2 children, 2 dogs, 12 vehicles, 2 lawnmowers, adoption, fostering, and many many miles! We love were we are now, but cannot help but wonder what the next 5 years will bring.

Thank you to all who helped us join our lives together 5 years ago, and thank you for the memories that you have helped us create since then! For those of you who we have not seen since August 10th, 2002....get in touch we miss you!
We thank the Lord that He brought Jason & myself together, and that He has given us these 5 wonderful years!

Congratulations Ash and Jason, on 5 years!!!! How wonderful!
You two are so blessed, with each other and with Ada and Ethan. I remember 5 years ago, I started being a "bawl bag" when Ash and Dave sang "Butterfly Kisses" and I did not stop until you were walking out of the church as Mr. & Mrs. Hartung.
Again, Congrats!!!!!
Love you both!

You think the last five years have gone fast. The next five will go by even more quickly. We can all marvel at how our lives have changed in the past and wonder what God has next for us.

You are a special family. We love you all and wish you many more years of happiness together.
