Daily Verse

"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.

Milestone Mommy Moments

You will probably be seeing this post title regularly, as my children grow. I know that I talk about how it isn't fair that they grow up so fast and how I wish that I could keep them little forever...but I HONESTLY have not had one of the "Mommy Moments" you hear a mother speak of...until today!
It may seem rather silly to you, but this is my blog and I feel the need to share. If any of you have been to our house or seen pictures, you know that our formal living room has 4 very large floor to ceiling windows facing the south, which faces the intersection of Michigan and main street in town...needless to say we see much activity! Anyway, sitting in our living room watching some squirrels play in our newly naked tree...I see a jogger on our sidewalk doing his regular jogging and immediately think of how my beautiful daughter would have said, "run, RUN!" in the adorable cuteness that she does. Next thing I know I am running for the Kleenex box because tears are streaming down my if you know me (and maybe even if you do not) you know that I am a VERY emotional person and I have NEVER been afraid to hide my tears. But the interesting thing about this instance is that it hasn't happened before. You see the reason that I was crying was because soon it will be cold outside and those joggers will not be out as much as they have been the past months. When they do come back next spring Princess will be that much older and will probably be at the point that my dad says "once you get that one to start talking you will not be able to get her to stop!" Now she already talks very well for her age, but you give her 5 more months and the simple sentences will be no more. This is the reason for my tears...the days of hearing her innocent little, "run, RUN!" are slipping away and will not come back. My little girl isn't as little as I see her, and while her growth shows her to be healthy...every mom has been guilty of wishing they would stay little!
Anyway, just had to share my first Mommy Moment...while it is the first, I can promise you it will not be the last!
Thanks for reading lovebeingmama....where Children truly are GIFTS FROM GOD!
