"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.

What a Blessing...

(These are not pictures I have taken, but some I found on a website from years past)
I just have to share, fall is my favorite time of the year and these last few days have felt VERY fall like! There is a little color starting to show up in the trees and I have been able to have windows open the last 3 days! I am so thankful for fall, I know that it isn't here to stay yet, but it makes me very excited that it is coming soon!

For those of you that have not experienced a fall drive through Spearfish Canyon, you should really make a reservation at the Hartung Hotel and check it out. In about 3 weeks it is going to be at its prime....hey, while you're doing that have some cake with us for Ada Grace's 2nd birthday!

As fall approaches it makes me want to "nest" I guess. I start thinking about hot cups of tea, cuddling with my kids, husband, and a blanket. I love the warm colors of fall, it is actually the time of year that I redecorate my house the most. I do not even decorate for Christmas as much as I do for fall....those warm fall colors just make the house so cozy!

I love fall too. We live in a deep valley in Eastern WA where the hills are mostly brown. So I love spring and Fall because these two seasons bring out such vivid colors! God's creation is wonderful. Last week I was at the river and a dragon fly landed nearby. I put my finger down and it climbed on to it and sat on my finger for almost ten minutes. I was able to get a really close up view from most angles...I was transfixed by the detail God has put into this bug! What a wonderful experience it was!
