"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.

Valentine Family Fun Time

Over Valentines Day we took the opportunity as a family to have a restful & relaxing weekend. We went to the hotel in R.C. that has the big water park and the kids had a blast, plus Mommy & Daddy were able to feel a little rest in the process! ***Lots of pictures!!!***

The hotel room was a king suite with TALL ceilings!
We had a little sitting area with an extra TV, this is where the kids slept.Not that big of deal to most, but I thought this little display area when you walked into the room was pretty!Nothing fancy, but thought you might like the full tour!We checked out the water park right away on the 13th after checking in. Handsome and I both tried the yellow & blue/red slide...I liked the blue/red one better! We didn't try the green one.This is the kids area, but unfortunately our kids were too little to do it by themselves and parents couldn't go on it with them. If you have a teen that could help out I think Princess & Sunshine would have gotten some giggles out of it!This was after swimming night #1, as you can see Princess was very happy...Sunshine was too, just couldn't get him to look at the camera!On Valentines Day we slept in and went to the mall to look for some updated clothes for Handsome & myself. Apparently after being married for 6 years it is clear that our clothes were not recently bought and we needed to change this. We hadn't brought a stroller and the kids hoofed it most of the time which led to distractions and doing silly things! They liked to look in the storefronts and smoosh their little faces up against the glass!They also discovered they could 'kiss' each other through the windows!Before leaving Handsome & I decided to let them 'drive' one of the cars! Sunshine wasn't so sure about it, but Princess loved it and was trying to drive and dance to the music at the same time! Handsome asked me where I wanted to go for lunch and we decided on R.uby T.uesday. They had a great kids meal menu, Princess got some little turkeys burgers with fries. Sunshine actually had more options than chicken strips, he had a mini steak with 'smashed taTOES'...he was in heaven!I was in heaven with my blackberry tea that had real blackberries in it! I loved it so much I had to take a picture of it!As long as I took a picture of the tea, thought I would take one of the best steak I had in a long time!After a long day of shopping (mostly for Daddy) they boys needed to relax a little... Heading to the water park day #2, they just woke up and were not completely with it yetIt didn't take Princess long to wake up once she hit the waterShe cracks me up She was trying to sit on the water like a chair!

They decided this was swimming in water all by themselves

Sunshine really got into the splashing
She was loving the water...a little fish she is!
There was a bucket of water on the kids part that would fill up and just before dumping all this water all over it would make a ton of noise with flashing lights and they were not to keen on that!
Speaking of Keen, we finally decided to buy each other Keen Sandals for Valentines day...I think there will be lots of hiking in order this summer to make them worth their while! I would suggest them to anyone though, very comfortable! It also allowed us to chance to check out the new S.cheels store on opening day! Very nice, and will be good competition for the C.abelas store that opened last fall.
More pictures to come of out goofy the kids were once we got back to the room AFTER swimming!
