"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.

Grandmas Visit, Day 1

My Mom came September 25th and stayed with us all the way through October 4th! We were so happy to have her here, and want her to come back soon! Between her and myself, we took TONS of pictures of our activities through the days, and I am behind once again! So I will pick some of my favs from every day and share with you, my loyal bloggie buddies!
After Grandma arrived, it was time to make some supper! While Mom and I chatted Ethan and Ada Grace were showing off in their toy room...this picture cracks me up! Ethan's obsession with hats doesn't just stop with his ~ it has now even moved on to Sissy's bling bling hats! Heehe Too handsome, I mean pretty, I mean HANDSOME!
Of course, the kids just loved having Grandma here...they ask about her often!
Grandma made a call to Grandpa to tell of her safe arrival and Ada Grace wasn't going to let Grandma go!
We played outside for a while.
Now this may be due to the fact that I am a hopeless romantic, but when my roses are 'past their prime' I cute them down to the first 5 leaf, and spread the petals all over the sidewalk. I just think it look pretty and is very inviting, maybe the mailman doesn't care...but I think it is pretty. Well anyway, the kids have made a game out of it. When I toss the petals into the air that say, "WOW!" With much 2 year old (and almost 2 year old ) gusto! AG has even gotten to the point that she picks them up and does it again!
"Pretty PRETTY!"

Stay tuned for the rest of Grandma's visit!
