"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.

A Childhood Remembered, 4th and final part.

This is my earthly rock.  We both have a Heavenly Father that is our strong tower, but I could not imagine going through this life without my Handsome by my side.  There are times when even our earlthy rocks are weak, I believe this man is full of sorrow about his growing up years and things that have happened in the past few years, but very rarely do I get a glimpse of that.  Last Saturday I did, do you know how difficult it is to see your rock weep because he is hurting so badly?  I love this man, I will stand by him until the end of our time on this earth!  He is amazing, wonderful, and any other thing that is good!
I am blessed!
This is the view of the place from the door of the house!
A little choked up...I do not know most of the memories this place holds for him, but I can tell you one thing he has chosen to remember the good ones and being there brought back so many of the other.
We never know what is on the other side of the gate, you never know how many times you can walk through that gate, but if you know Christ as your Savior you know He holds the key to tomorrow and can have faith that He will see you through. 

I do not know if we will walk through this gate again, as I stated in Part 1 it was condemned and who knows what will happen in the weeks and months to come.  It would be great if they don't do anything until next summer then maybe shortly after the snow melts we can get in and see the play houses again!
On thing has been for sure, the walk down memory lane has been a silent one...but one that spoke in so many other ways!  Thank you, Handsome, for allowing me to walk beside you!
