"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.

After receiving feet of heavy snow, Handsome decided he would take his snow day to start digging out! He started bright and early Tuesday morning, the snow was actually still falling but was almost finished. He dug and dug! This is our neighbor to the North,if you remember from yesterdays post...they have a layer of skirting before the door starts...and the snow is half way up their door!

Other neighbors, that is their main entrance to their house!

Looking to the South...
Looking to the North...The big drift behind our houseHandsome shoveled out a tunnel to our back deck!A big drift on top of our house
This finished project in front of our house! Didn't he do a wonderful job, just wish is wasn't all in vain!Handsome's truck surrounded by snowOur dear suburbanAs you can see the blue skies came out and it started melting already on Tuesday! That is what I love about Spring snow around doesn't stick around long!

About Handsome'swork being in vain...we had to get out on Tuesday night to get stuff for our furnace (it quit on Monday night!) and when we returned after only being gone about a hour or so this is what we find!Someone (our neighbors we called the cops on Sunday about) had decided they needed to shovel 2 foot of snow back into our sidewalk!And where Handsome had spent about 5 hours shoveling out our suburban and truck! The neighbor that lived between us and them had seen them doing it and was willing to talk to the police about it. So we called the Deputy and had him come. It happened to be the same one that came on Sunday along with the same lady officer. They were not too impressed by this at all!A shovel mark to prove that it was shoveled in!
The only problem was that our good neighbor only saw them doing the street, not actually doing our sidewalk...and since the street is not our personal property nothing could really be done about it that night. The Deputy did say he was going to turn it in the the States Attorneys office and see what they thought about it. They are watching the dad of this family pretty carefully and have asked us to call them immediately if anything else happens. Apparently this guy is very dangerous and it is in our best time he will be arrested!
