"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.

A Day at the Zoo!

While we were at my parents for Memorial Day weekend, we thought it might be fun to head to the zoo. Our kids had never been to a zoo before, and it was fun to view it through their eyes. You will notice one of the favorite zoo animals of all time are not included {Monkeys} they will have their own post tomorrow!

This is our entire crew, minus myself! Jess, Boo, Kaylee, Aunt Christy, Grandma Pancakes, Aunt Lisa, Princess, & Handsome looking at one of the bears.Boo stuck to Jess the entire day, they have been buds since he was just a tiny little guy!Then came the Rhinos~And the Gators...kind of looks like he is smiling!And then my children decided to terrorize the female peacock that had gotten out of her pan! They chased her all the way back...heeheAnd when she got back into her pen, the two male peacocks were showing off for we have Boo and Handsome thinking this was a nice show!And the two males just kept showing off!They would go back and forth between having their tails up and down depending on how close the female was to the other male!Since they wouldn't ride the real camel, a stone elephant was all I could get for a photo opp. We don't have a picture of this, but at the petting farm they had goats and you could feed them. Princess did it twice and didn't love it, Boo took some convincing but ended up really having a good time feeding them!
Then on to the penguins, one of three animals Princess had on her list to see...she really thought they were funny!Then on the terrorizing more animals, they chased a Mama Goose and her goslings back to the pond along with Miss Kaylee!Precious Picture!Giraffes were #2 on the Princess list (there wasn't any lions at this zoo...but they were #3!)Throw in a zebra...I love the African animals!Boo with his Daddy and Grandma Pancakes looking on!Princess looking at the BIG turtlesBoo liked them too!Princess, Handsome, Jess, & Aunt Lisa watching the tiger pacing.I am not sure which animal they are looking at...Maybe the Monkeys?A cozy bear sleepingChecking out the pink flamingosAgain...Riding the pretend hippo inside the museumCrawling on the gatorAnd sitting on his headThe elephantHow happy she was to have gone to the zoo...And just a few minutes later she was out...with the Nemo.Fish Grandma Pancakes bought her!They both are out...the picture of Boo by himself just will not load, but you can see him out with his Monkey that Grandma Pancakes bought him at the zoo!
What a fun trip it was...and the fun company we were around! We are hoping to go to a bigger zoo next summer!
