"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.

New Furniture

Our new furniture is finally here! We ordered it on May 26th and it just came today...don't ask! Anyway...I promised some of my family members that I would put pics up since they missed it by a week! This is the new dining table and 6 chairs. It actually has both leaves in it in this picture, we will at least take one of them off for every day, if not both. I love it! It is solid Oak and reminds me of something Pa Ingalls would have made. The hutch is the same brand and slightly different collection. The table is the Rustic Mission collection and the hutch is the Rustic Traditions collection. The glass in the hutch is bubble glass for the old fashion look. The lighting inside it turned on or dimmed by touching the fun! I cannot wait to "pretty it up!"
This is our new TV armour. With our kids being ever so active these days it was something we both have wanted for a long time and decided to save Mommy from having to pick up the DVDs every other was time! This if from Ashley Furniture, and almost matches the end table (also Ashley) that we bought with our previous set of furniture!
And now, my flash on my camera has died and so these were very dark pictures that I just adjusted before posting...that is why they do not look as good as the others. This is Jason's beloved reading recliner!
And the matching love seat. He has wanted a leather couch since we had one in Huron and we missed the reclining factor very much. We were going to get the couch, but I thought that it was a waste of money because the middle seat rarely gets used. And besides, if we are both sitting in the reclining ends of a couch we couldn't be close together...this was I can at least hold his hand!
So there it is, the long awaited furniture!
