"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.

My Anniversary Gift

Although Jason was very busy these last couple of weeks, he still managed to find a very nice gift for me! Heehe, actually last weekend when my Mother-In-Law and I were "shopping" downtown (the guys took the stroller AND our purses) we found this wonderful little shop on main that had lots of very neat things in it. They sell signs of all sorts with wonderful little saysing on them. Margaret found one that says "Amazing Grace" in beautiful rich colors with the song notes and words lightly in the background. It was very pretty. I had found one that said "to have and to hold and never let go" that I thought would have made a PERFECT anniversary gift. Well, Saturday Jason's day got very busy (as it usually does) and he asked me if I would go pick up my gift because he was running out of time. I was happy to do it while the kids were napping, but when I got there I found this one, it is taken from the Song of Solomon in the Bible and Jason agreed once I brought it home that he liked this one better!

We had a WONDERFUL anniversary. Of course we went to church first thing in the morning. Jason and I played "Sweet Hour of Prayer" him on the piano and me on the clarinet. We then drove to Rapid to eat at the Olive Garden and went to Bust Buy to find a new camera (I would consider to be part of my gift) and came home to watch Loves Abiding Joy (very good!) and The Notebook. We had already watched The Notebook once, but thought it would be a good one to watch for such an occasion. We played with the kids for while and put them to bed. It really was a great day!

I thank God for the 6 years that He has given to Jason and I and look forward to many MANY more!
