"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.

Ulitmate sacrifice of a three year old!

Of a two year old that is...  I have seen the bond my children have with their father, my husband and it is incredible.  I sometimes get a little jealous because they have a relationship that I cannot be completely part of, but I am thankful for it.  You see the fun times they have together when Mommy has to go to the store or has a meeting and they always say Daddy is the fun one.  But tonight, the love of my son for his Daddy was shown in one of the most sacrificial ways an almost three year old can show it...he wanted his Daddy to sleep with his blankie!  This blanket has been around for only two of his three years, but it very quickly became his favorite (good pick Grandma Pancake!) It is the comfort and do not even think about going somewhere without it.  The way he lights up when he sees that thing is crazy and cute.  But tonight, while we were getting the kids jammies on Boo decided that he would like Daddy to sleep with his blanket.  I (being the mean one) was going to make him follow through on his gift, because we need to learn to keep our word...but I didn't even have to be stern about it.  He asked if he could put it on his Daddy's pillow and he did.  When Handsome tried to 'give' it back I saw the droopiest sad eyes ever look at me.  I understand that my husband only wanted him to be able to sleep with his blanket but Boo didn't understand why his Daddy was rejecting his 'gift.'  So now, as my children are both snuggled into their cozy little beds my husband is showering and we will retire to our bed and the very special blankie that awaits a very honored Daddy for one night!  Being a parent is amazing!

My two little ones help me see daily why God instructs us to have the faith of a child...
