"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.

Chilly Day for Swimmin'

In mid June we had a week of rainy/cooler weather that didn't allow for us to spend much time outside, let alone swimming! Well the Blue Birds LOVED that weather, and I enjoyed watching them from the window by my desk! One of the days, it was maybe 71* outside and after the Pumpkins left the Patch my kids talked me into filling up the baby pool so they could play....IT WAS CHILLY! They enjoyed it none the less, what can I say...little fish they are! We also tried out a new sprinkler thing I had gotten for them, it isn't good for trailer hits 4 houses and some cars if you have it on all the way to function properly! They thought it was fun for a little while anyway...

Team work... His toes must not feel much, this was seriously chilly and he stood in there for a good long while!
But it was a good day for taking pictures of him: He was in a good mood, the light was just right, and he was flashing smiles my way like crazy!And silly faces, this doesn't look like a baby face any more, but a very grown up little manMore team work!He thought something was funny

Pretty boy...She was cold, but wouldn't tell me because I had warned her!So handsome with his sun kissed cheeks and his big blue eyes...My little Cali Surfer Dude!He got the idea to splash Mommy
But Mommy beat him to it!
try, Try TRY again!And again!When Daddy came home from work, he was able to help me put the rest of the newest climber together, we are still waiting on the missing parts to put the swings up though!It was fun even without the swings!
