Daily Verse

"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.

Happy Birthday Princess!

Well, a year ago right now we were some where between Spearfish, SD and Houston, TX. It was so much fun waking up this morning and remembering "a year ago we became parents, and a year ago our daughter was born." So funny to realize that a year ago yesterday we were at the point of giving up on ever having children at all, then overnight we had a daughter! What a wonderful year it has been! As you can see in this picture she has her birthday hat (I thought she should have a tiara!) and her "princess" sash!
We have yard signs for the special occasion!
On her first birthday she discovered our DVD rack! She was escaping as I took the picture!
Here she is "opening" her CD player. We already burned one out from all the times that we play music for the kids (although it was only $19.97 at Wal.Mart!) We decided that our "big" gift for both the kids' first birthdays will be these little bit nicer CD players that mount on the wall. That way they each will have one in their own rooms and they each can have different music. (Ada will have the softer music because she is already starting to dance alot!! Shes got the moves! I am sure there will be more pictures after this weekend and the big birthday party...there is still time to RSVP...grab a plane and come to Spearfish!
