"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.

14 week belly!

Saturday October 2nd we hit the 14 week point in this pregnancy.  That means that on Thursday it will be 10 weeks since we found out about little Grasshopper!  I really do not have too much I could complain about as far as the pregnancy goes...I have been tired and we have been extra careful about what I do/don't do.  Really the biggest troubles I am having is that my body was liking being smaller (the 48 lbs I lost at the beginning of this year) and is now NOT liking getting bigger again.  My muscles are giving a rough time of it, but it is nothing in comparisson to the thought of not having more children!  It is crazy to me that in less than six months this little Grasshopper will be coming out of the comforts of my belly and meeting his/her brother and sister!  While I am a mom already and have two wonderful children, I know NOTHING about being pregnant/giving birth....but I am not scared or nervous about that.  Really, my biggest concerns were about loosing the baby.  It seems that we are past those issues, but anything can happen at any time.  I look forward to when I can feel Grasshopper moving for reassurance of this precious life inside of me.  I do think I may have felt a few little flutters, mostly at night when I move from my left side to my right, there is a little tickle in the same spot every time. 

Sorry about the absence of posting again...I am a failing blogger apparently, but I look forward to getting better (again) and hope to keep you all up to speed better on the pregnancy and my ALMOST twins that are 4 (well Boo won't be 4 for 2 1/2 months) but he thinks he is already!
