"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.

20 and 23 months!

WARNING: No pictures and Blogger isn't letting me upload them at the moment...maybe later!

So yesterday came and went and I didn't get a chance to point out that it was my kids birthday! Ethan is now 20 months old and Ada Grace is now 23 months old! It is hard to believe that in less than a month my baby girl will be 2 years old! WOW!

She is growing and learning every day. She is trying to carry on conversations with me now, "helping" her brother know what is right and wrong, walking up steps and sometimes not even holding the rail, jumping, running, starting to understand the whole potty thing, putting on "shows", and remembering people. She really is working on connecting things or people together as well!

A few of her hang ups would have to be: FOOD, a little too much drama, wanting to be in the center of every one's attention, trying to Mommy her brother, and thinking she is too big for naps!

Ethan is also growing and learning every day. He is starting to try to jump, dance, and do pretty much everything Ada Grace does (or at least give it his best shot!) He also is really picking up on the sign language (finally!) He is still Mommy's snuggles, and loves to rough house with Daddy. He has "favorite" people that he opens up to ~ usually people that are around the most. And he is happy to join in on Sissy's "shows" when other people are around.

A few of his hang ups would have to be: he doesn't like the word NO, no being able to stand up to AG, looks for trouble in every corner, likes to empty to toy box for no reason, climbs on everything, and doesn't really care what Mama says is off limits!

In spite of their hang ups...which some of them are cute at this age...BUT, as Barney Fife would say you have to, "Nip it in the Bud!" I really have two of the best kids in the world...I am thankful to God every day for them and love being their Mommy! They are great!
