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.

Gifts with Grandpa & Grandma!

The kids were majorly spoiled with gifts this year!  Thanks to all the family members that took part in spoiling my do you want to come help with the attitudes that go along with getting EVERYTHING you want for Christmas? Please?!?

This year we kind of splurged on my dad.  He is the person that never 'needs' anything because everyone else always 'needs' something!  That makes a person very VERY difficult to shop for.  This year was going to be one of those box of chocolate covered cherries and share in moms gift kind of years...just because I really had NO idea what to get for him.  But Black.Friday shopping changes all that!  When shopping on Moms side of the state our tradition is to eat lunch at the Cracker.Barrell!  MMMM!  But then we can do some shopping afterwards!  I scored big this year!  They had a line of stuff by Alan.Jackson (who my dad claims to look like...I kind of denied it in my High School years, but am coming around now!)  This picture is the cover of one of his albums that we happen to have, lots of good old hymns on it!  Anyway, when I walked by it the way the picture is taken it really does look like my dad, or AJ, or my dad...hmmm

So that was a no brainer...but when I couldn't say no to the second half the gift got a little pricey...but well worth it!
They had cowboy hats just like AJ wears!  I knew he NEEDED that too!

Think he likes?  He then had to complain about Mom making him get a haircut for Christmas because he looks more like AJ when he has the golden curls!  Gotta ♥ my Daddy!

A pizza for her kitchen!

A 'rolling tape' to help Daddy work!

Mom, Seester, n the ReeRe

Seester thought her husband forgot about her...good thing we made it to town that morning for some brother/sister shopping, huh?

She got Arctic.Cat gloves to match her knew coat!  She really was excited!

Some markers and Princess coloring pages!

A John.Deere plate, cup, & bowl...he was kind of excited!

Thanks Seester!

The cause of the adults staying up until close to 2 AM!  ReeRe got a John.Deere Monopoly game for Christmas from the 'rents and we all decided to play it.  What fun it was...and my husband should thank me for the win because I totally set him up.  Why did I ever break my rule of NEVER playing Monopoly with him again?  Actually Handsome & Dad won, the rest of were totally taken out.  I think Seester was kind of shocked at how serious of a game Monopoly is in this family!  But oh what fun it was...seriously, when are we gonna do it again?

My new pots n pans from Mom & Dad...thanks guys, they work great!

Handsome opening his gift from Mom & Dad...what is it?  What is it?

I think he is excited!  A creeper, floor jack, and heavy duty stands!

After it was all said and done we made a mess all over the floor, but I think it is safe to say that this was one of the most memory making Christmas' ever!  (We missed Aunt Wendy & Uncle Laural though!)
