"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 ~ Pt. 1

While back 'home' for a wedding we had the chance to visit one of the places Hansdome lived while growing up.  We had taken a longer visit there last Memorial day shortly after the last residents moved out we were able to view some pretty amazing things (but didn't have the camera)...the 'houses' that Handsome and his siblings 'lived' in while they played.  It was interesting to see their personalities in each one of their playhouses!  My husbands had order and reason.  The had little paver bricks at the frong door and his last name painted across the top.  You walk inside and you see little chairs they nailed together out of scraps, empty tin containers that he got from his mother for his pantry, books, clothes, even a heat stove!  It was amazing!  Unfortunately due to tall grass and itch weed we were not able to get back that far.  But we did get some good pictures of the house, the barn, and three other out buildings.  The garage was already taken.  The date we stopped by: July 17th, 2010....the date the sticker on the door stated that the place was condemned: July 15th, 2010!  I don't know how the Lord allows things like this to happen, while our next trip 'home' is just over a month away, some or all of this place may no longer exsist!  Enjoy some of the pictures...I will be posting them in a series as I have many!

The things Handsome and his brother did inside this building was amazing...more on that in a later post!

I love taking pictures of old barns...and when they have sentimental value that is even better!

More to come in Part 2!
