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.

Trip Home from Christmas

We ended up leaving early for our trip 'home' for Christmas due to weather, and decided to stay on through Monday as planned....well turns out the weather would have kept us there that long anyway!  The interstates and highways we had to travel to get home were not opened until Sunday, and not early enough for us to leave and get home before dark!  However, Monday we were able to have clean roads and enjoy the sights of 20-25 foot drifts the entire way!
This drift that was along the interstate would have easily covered our Suburban!

She devoloped this new pouty face for picture taking while at G&G's house!

Always happy to smile for the camera!

I can see the Hills!
It is amazing to me how much we LOVE being where we are.  Seriously, while we loved spending so much time with my family over Christmas it was just amazing to see the hills and know we were close to home!  I cannot even describe the entire feeling that happened when I saw the hills...but my heart was racing and my eyes teared up!  Seriously!

This was much more amazing IRL, the tiny little dot in the middle of the sky is the afternoon moon!  It was beautiful!

So pretty...but we did not know what awaited us at home!

Welcome back!

An easy three foot of snow kept us away from our wonderful husband shoveled a pathway so we could unload and get in the house.  We then were able to go get a friends snowblower which made Handsome's job LESS but it still took him three plus hours to get things ready for Daycare the next day and so he could get his truck out for work! 

What an adventure!
