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.

"Mommy, I want to git Married"

Handsome and my 7th anniversary was on the 10th of August and for some reason it really was a BIG deal to me this year! I had gotten his gift {he ended up with a second gift~a new wedding ring that doesn't conduct electricity!} way in advance and hoped we would be able to do something special (though due to the time of year and a certain rally, we wouldn't do much at this time)

Anyway, the Saturday before he was helping some people and I was at home with the kids by myself. Boo was taking a long nap and Princess wanted to watch something on 'TB' so I pulled out the old VHS tape of our wedding and we watched. She was completely into it, asking why Grandma was crying and why Aunt C wasn't there. When it was finished I told her to stay put because I wanted to show her something. I returned from my closet with a long white DAVIDS.BRIDAL bag and she knew, though never seeing it before, that it was 'Mommy's git married dress.' How does she know this? Anyway, the minute she laid her eyes on the dress herself she said she wanted to wear it {she has never asked to wear anything of mine before!} this girl is just playing into my need to make this year, this seventh anniversary something SPECIAL like none other. So she put it on, and drown in it, but she put it on! Along with my tiara, my veil, my wedding necklace {that was my Grandmothers' - her namesake}, and I also let her put on my wedding band. She wanted to put on my 'git married shoes' but I couldn't find here are a few of the pictures from this beautiful day. Oh, and I totally didn't plan on having our wedding picture in the background, it just worked out that way. *smile*sigh*

~So Excited~

~She will be a beautiful bride~

~With Mommy's wedding ring~

~Is this not precious or what?~


~Has she done this before?~

~Too precious for words~

This is something I think that both her and I will treasure forever, and we shall see if she might be as interested to redo this next year?!?
