"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.

Valentine Family Weekend

So I have not been taking many pictures because our camera in on its last leg, and I have not reached my weight loss goal...nor have we saved the money for the camera we would like please bear with the terrible quality of the pictures in the posts from now on out!

BUT, we did enjoy a great family time on Valentines weekend...we stayed at a GREAT hotel for TWO nights (thanks to a great couple a friends who decided instead of gifting eachother on V-Day they wanted to buy us a second night so we could have more family time!  Thanks Jason & Lex!)  We of course did LOTS of swimming since our hotel had a 130 ft water slide and then Saturday we went SHOPPING!  We kind of spoiled our kids...since Grandpa & Grandma do it all the time they are SPOILED but we as their parents really do not so it that often, it was kind of fun! 

But our newest tradition is that every time we go to the mall we get to pick one ride on the way out...that day they wanted the SPEED boat!  They enjoyed their ride (and I am thankful that they are no longer deathly afraid of these things!)

We also went to Pottery2Paint and let the kids paint their own ice cream bowls...BooBear LOVED it because he doesn't mind getting dirty, but the Princess had a little trouble with it because she kept wanting to wash her hands because, "Mama, I'm MESSY!" 

All in all they enjoyed it and would like to go back an make more...of course the Princess has her eye on the $54 life size puppy, and just what would we do with that?!?!?

And here is the finished product:

Handsome and I realized how much of perfectionists we were as we were just to 'assist' the kids and let them do WHATEVER.THEY.WANTED with the was killing us to not step in and help them 'stay in the lines' but we managed and now we have a great keepsake.  I did carve the date into the bottom of the bowls before they fired them so as to remember this day forever!  Seems like the kids want ice cream all.the.TIME. now!
