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.

My Blog...or blogs in general!

If you haven't started a blog of your own, you probably are going to think I am crazy, if you have know what I am talking about!

I posted my first post on April 27th, 2007. My children were 7 & 4 months old. It was about that day and our new 2 ring blow up pool. Pretty cute they were, who would have known what that first post would lead to! My only regret about blogging since then: I didn't start sooner! I know that I have been spotty in trying to keep our life updated for you all to see, but being a mom to two 2 year olds and having a daycare kind of keeps me on my toes!

To the thankful part...I would have NEVER guessed how much I would enjoy 'airing out my laundry' for whomever wants to read. Sure, part of it is keeping all of our family members up to date about the newest craziness that is going on in our lives...but another part of it is just a way of expression. I used to write poems to express myself. I believe the last one I ever wrote was after our 3rd miscarriage back on January 20th of 2005. Life got pretty busy after that, and I needed a new way of expression. Look at all we have been through together on !

I know that there are times that it isn't beneficial for all of my family to be reading and seeing every tiny little thing that I post about, but my #1 thing that I want to be remembered for was being REAL! What you see is what you get.

So on this Thankful Thursday you get to hear ramblings, just tidbits of why I keep doing this! For those of you who do not blog yet, try it! And those of you that do, thank you ~ I so enjoy reading yours, almost as much as I enjoy keeping mine up.

Go blog hunting one day and see what you come across...I have lost track of how many I follow via google is one of the first things I do in the morning and one of the last before bed at night...go check to see who else has posted! If I don't check it over the weekend I usually have 100+ posts to!

I am thankful for blogging!
