"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.

Thankful Thursday & ABCs of ME!

The ABC's of Me (I actually borrowed this from a couple of other blogs &
I am actually going to turn it into my THANKFUL ABCs...everything I use is something I am thankful for!

A: AG, my beautiful Princess

B: Blogs...they help me know that there are other people out there with the same struggles with adoption/infertility that I am going through!

C: Church ~ Northpoint is FABULOUS!

D: Dark ~ nothing better to go for a walk after dark and see the beautiful stars and moon!

E: EE, my handsome little Boo Boo, and ED ~ our future (maybe) daughter...when we raise the funds to contract for adoption again!

F: Faith ~ there are times in my life that my faith has not been strong, and most times it is not strong enough...but without faith in God I know that my life would be a wreck!

G: Some dear friends last names start with G...they have been a huge blessing to us and have practically adopted us into their family~we are thankful for them!

H: Handsome Husband ~ ladies I have been blessed with one of the Best Amazing Wonderful Godly Cute Helpful (the list could go on and on) husbands you could ever find!

I: sister-In-laws ~ I have been blessed with two great sister in-laws, just wish I could spent a little more time with them!

J: Can I use this as another chance to be thankful for my husband...since his name starts with J?

K: Kids ~ anyone that knew me before AG & EE knew how much I wanted to have children, and most people that know me now know how much I LOVE having them!

L: Love ~ I cannot imagine what life would be like if love was not a MAJOR part of it!

M: Mommy...I love being one (and I love mine!)

N: Our other really good friends last name start with N, and he happens to be our lawyer too!

O: Opera House ~ I have spent a good few hours both on stage and off and have loved every minute of it! Cannot wait to see the musical this summer!

P: Pumpkin Patch Daycare ~ my business

Q: Quiet...this is something I treasure more and more every single day!

R: I have a sister who's name starts with R and I am thankful to have her as friend on FB!

S: Spring...I have never been as thankful for this season and I am this year!

T: Twenty Seven...the date both of our children were born!

U: Upbringing...while I do not intend to walk my parents footsteps exactly...they taught me that love is the number one thing children need. My parents were/are very good at loving, I never EVER questioned even once if my parents loved/love me and they are AMAZING people!

V: Vow ~ I know that my dear husband would never have imagined what he was signing up for with the 'for worse' part of the our vows...but the fact that I know when we said those vows that it was for the rest of our life on earth and I never have to wonder if we are going to last...because God brought us together!

W: Waterfalls ~ they are so beautiful

X: Xrays, the last ones I had showed that my fall on the ice didn't do too much damage

Y: Yellow ~ a color that I am loving more and more on my daughter!

Z: My brother, Farmer, his name starts with 'z' and I am thankful for him...I still think back to the days that we were alot closer, and wish that for now...but love him and wouldn't trade him in for anything (well maybe for, na...probably not even that!)
