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.

Cutting our Christmas Tree...

We were invited by some friends to go with them and cut down our tree. Lonnie & Jaynie have a cabie on Iron Creek Lake, we all met there. Lucas & Corin with Slater (4 months) and Levi & Katie. We found a sitter for our 5 and spent the afternoon walking around in the snow! The first picture is with Corin & Slater.
This is Lonnie and Lucas, joking about the tiny little Charlie Brown tree.
The is Jason carrying our Christmas tree after he cut it down with the axe.
We didn't get a picture with the tree upright, but this is our tree in the back of our truck.
Here we have Landon, Liza & Jaynie carrying their tree back.

Levi & Katie carrying their tree, with Lonnie looking on.

We had a great time, the Humbrachts have become close friends of ours since we moved here. Lonnie has a construction company here in town, his boys Lucas, Levi, and Landon work with him. We love to get together with them, they have tons of fun!
If anyone of you have never cut your own tree, we suggest it, it was great fun. Sometime you should ask Jason about almost letting his wife fall through the creek!
We decorated our tree last night, hopefully today I will get a picture of the tree on the blog as well!

It sure looks like fun. We have never cut our own tree, but I think it would be something to consider.
