"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.

One year ago today we were 'home' celebrating my home towns Saddle Horse Holiday always celebrated over Father's Day weekend.  The kids had the privilage of throwing candy for the Opera House float and my husband drove Dad's truck for it.  The kids had a blast! 

It is fun to look back and see a 'where we were on this date XXX number of years ago!'  Our children were only 2 1/2 year old, Handsome was 25 lbs heavier, I was 50 lbs heavier (that makes a 75 lb loss between us!)  And we had no idea the pain a year from that day would hold!

First day of summer!
Birthday of a highschool classmate of mine (always remember June birthday b/c people born in June are just plain AWESOME!)
But also a date that I will not was the date that the foster twins were removed from our home for no reason at all but to be placed into another foster home.  It was a date I saw people from all walks of my life band together and try to fight for the girls and give them a voice.  It was a date I was scared of because I didn't know how I, my children, or my husband would react/handle the situation.  It is a date that I am impressed by the strength God gives one when having to be strong for my kiddos!  (Praise the Lord) I want to thank those of you that decided they were going to try and give Cupcake and EskiMo a voice today.  I am impressed by the number of you that took matters into your own hands and called and/or emailed the Governor of our state to try and find justice for the girls.  At this point it doesn't seem like anything happened, we may not know for a while...or ever, but know one thing!  When it comes time to be accountable for our actions, God knows that you all stepped out of yourself and did something in the best interest of two helpless little girls!  We miss them, because of what was going on I had my husband take their crib down right after he got home from work today.  I wasn't wanting to have to look at it longer than was a painful day, but a day that I truly saw how God can bring people together and give strength and comfort in a time of hurt.    Thank you again to each of you!
