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.

Work Day!

Today Handsome and Sunshine took a load of stuff to the city dump with Grandpa Denny and then went to the house to work work work! APrincess & Mommy went to dance class, got some paint, picked up lunch, and went to the house to work work work! The newness of being at the 'new house' for the kids has officially worn out as they do have have roaming privileges yet due to wet paint and floors without flooring. So, they either get to stay in what is the master bedroom, or get corralled to a pack n play with their mega blocks. Both were fun the first few they get bored real fast. Well today while I was painting the second bathroom (for the 2nd time!) I put a little spot of paint on both of their would have thought I had just given them the world! They ran over to Daddy to show him and Princess had a whole slew of words that came out very excitedly! They liked it there so much they didn't want me to wash it off, so we had to take a can see it better on Princess than on it goes.

Since this is the first house we have owned since becoming parents, we had to put a personal touch to it. Originally I was just going to put each of the kids' hand prints on their bedroom walls, but then when I was repainting the bathroom I was thinking about this Arctic Cat green (slight mix up in communication) and how while I didn't want it to be on an entire wall, I didn't want the $30 to go to complete I asked Handsome if it would be okay to let the kids put their hand prints on the wall in the frog bathroom. He not only thought it was a fun idea (this really isn't the man I married...he's better!) he thought the Mommy and Daddy should do it as well! Because of Sunshine having stubby little pinkies like Mommy his didn't show up so good! And we have almost an entire gallon of this color so there will be extra to add whenever the Lord grows our family!
This is APrincess's room...since we are living in a Mobile Home with the seams running every so often we decided to make the most of them in her room and give her stripes!
 Sunshine's cowboy/John Deere room...we are going to get some rope and use it as border between the 2 colors on his walls!
The rest of the pictures you will have to wait and see! We officially have 3 rooms completed painting and 6 to go, at this rate we will be moving in before we are finished! Guess I will have to buck up and work later every night next week...and maybe Handsome will have to live with the tears that go along with it (from Mommy!)
