"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.

At the hostpital

Boo was able to get one of his best naps ever...of course that would come when you have a double does of sedative!
Isn't it sooo cute when he sucks his thumb!
Princess was able to take a nap in the high tech crib they had in our room!
Of course she had to play around in there for a while before she actually fell asleep!

Sanford Children's Hostpital gave us one of our best experiences for Boos testing that we have ever had. They brought wonderful toys to keep the kids (mostly Princess) happy while things were going on. They allowed not only me, but my mother (Grandma Pancake) and Princess to see much more of what goes one than any other hospital or clinic we have been in. I didn't expect my mom and daughter to be able to be right there with us, I figured we (Boo and myself) would have to leave them in some waiting room somewhere and see them a few hours later. They actually let us go up to the doorway of the MRI room and allowed us to watch them prep Boo and get him on the table and hooked up to the monitors. They then moved us into a very kid friendly waiting room where Princess met Max, a 10 month old boy that made my children look like munchkins! Of course both Maxs' parents were over 6 feet tall!
A very good experience, even though we didn't find anything out, we have gotten our foot in the door of a very good doctor in South Dakota!

I was very pleased with the folks at the hospital as well! They even made sure Gram knew where all the coffee was!!! I am also thankful that Ash asked Gram to be a part of all of the tests and spending time with Ethan during this time. Thanks Ash and Jason for letting me be there for all of you!!! Love you all. Give my babies a hug and kiss from gram.

I had been watching every day for more pictures of the kids. You really came through this time with the added bonus of seeing other relatives too! (Sorry, they're not as cute though!)
