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.

Thankful for Strollers!

This is Princess and Sunshine trying out the John Deere Wagon, but Sunshine isn't strong enough to ride in it yet.
Here we go! We had many comments and many MANY different looks as we were strolling around Spearfish like this. I took the triple, Handsome the double....I know I posted that the double is my favorite, but with two boys of that size in there it would be a little difficult to push!
  Princess had fun while the boys played on the awesome playground that we have here in town.
 Sunshine was famished after a long walk (like he did any of the work.)

Daddy took both Princess and Sunshine into the enclosed playground and pushed them on the swings. They both squealed and laughed, I only wish that strollers could go in I could have been closer to get better pictures of their first time on a swing.
Daddy took a few, but he said that Princess wouldn't look at him while he had the camera in his hands!
 Sunshine is really enjoying his time on the swing.
They were trying to get back into the playground while Daddy was rounding up the two older boys.
Both of our kids like to eat leaves!

I was a great day, we were over 70 degrees here and wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather. The kids needed to burn off some energy...of course it was Mom and Dad that did all the work!

Our kids really enjoyed that park. I like that it is all enclosed.

What a fun afternoon at the park! Sure looks like everyone enjoyed it. Grandma wishes she was there to hear their squeals of delight. I love the transportation!
Give my babies a hug and kiss from gram
Love you all

I am a friend of Kristi's and followed the link on their page to yours ... We are blessed to be a transracial adoptive family, and I just love reading about others who have been blessed by adoption as well. Your family is beautiful! Now off to read more of your story ... (:

Laurel & I saw a 4 seater stroller in the San Diego Zoo during our recent trip. We thought of you and your stroller collection.
