"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.

Storybook Island

On Labor Day we went to Storybook.Island as a family. It was something that I had been wanting to take the kids to all summer and that was the last chance as it was the end of their regular season! Sooooo glad we went, they LOVED it!

The bridge just as you are entering, apparently someone mom knows recognized our kids from pictures that my mom has showed off at work...if that ever happens I would love to meet you!

For someone who has Pumpkin Patch Daycare it is only right to take a picture inside the pumpkin house, right?

Noah's Ark

101 Dalmations, yes...our children are riding dogs!

I believe the highlight of their day was riding this train. Storybook Island itself is free, but the train cost $1 per ride...well worth it as they STILL talk about the day the got to ride the chu chu train!

This allowed us to talk about Jonah being swallowed by the big fish...

This is something we will do again, my only regret is not taking a picture of Jack & Jill...I would say the nursery rhymes (if I remembered them) as we walked up to each display and you will often hear Princess asking, "Who fell down and bumped his crown?" To which I respond, "Jill" and she then says, "No! She was tumbling AFTER!" Great memories! If you are a f/b friend there are more pictures of this day on my f/b page!
