"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.

Trip to ER...

This past weekend we made the trip across the state to see my parents/family & also to have our Christmas pictures/belly pictures/Boos birthday pictures, and other fun shots taken.  The trip there was rather uneventful (thankfully,) we stopped no less than every 1 1/2 hours so I could walk...get something to drink and that sort.  That kind of trip is my idea of included two different malls!

We were able to meet up with my parents, brother & his wife for supper.  There was some family drama on my husbands side that took up the rest of the night.  Kids got to bed late and I couldn't sleep...great way to get good family pictures the next morning! 

Met up with a wonderful lady from my home town and she snapped away for 3 hours!  We had several different locations we tried out, it was pretty fun and I think we may have managed to capture one good family picture to send out for Christmas!  8-)  My mom took us out for lunch afterward and we drove over to spend a little time with my husbands parents.  I was able to sneek in a short nap before leaving the kids with my wonderful sister-in-law so we could have a date to the Olive Garden!  HOW WONDERFUL!  We had about 3 1/2 hours of just us time to talk about lots of things that we hadn't had a chance to chat about lately!  When we arrived home the kids were sleeping (great job Seester!) and we had a time of midnight coffee (not me!) and doughnuts!  It was great fun!

Sunday morning I woke up rested, but not feeling well.  So we took it kind of lazy and didn't hurry to get on the road.  I ate breakfast, drank some water & juice and we finally decided to head home just after noon.  About 2 hours into our 7 hour journey I started having cramping pains in the right side of my belly.  They were dull, but almost constant along with my hands and feet swelling up to crazy sizes! 

I finally decided I was going to call in and see what they thought.  With all the travels they figured my body was just reacting to that and lack of water...they suggested I drink at least a liter of water and get my feet up and if in a couple hours it didn't stop that I come in.  It didn't stop, in fact it progressed and we ended up going to the ER before we even went home! 

Grasshopper was fine, bouncing around (actually dancing) on my bladder, doing acrobatics all over in my belly but his/her heartbeat was slower than it had been, but still in the normal range.  They gave me an IV for fluids and ran some tests.  It may have something to do with one of the cysts on my left ovary, I go in to my regular doctor tomorrow afternoon to be checked out again.  The pains are still there, but they sent me home with a list of things to more bananas, drink lots of water, rest\take it easy, and if any of a list of things changed or got worse to come back.

Scary!  And still is!  But we are watching it and we will now be watched even more...again!  I am not suppose to travel farther than an hour away until further notice and have pain meds for if it gets too unbearable!

If you think about it...would you mind praying for Grasshopper?  I know they said at this point he/she was not at risk, but it still makes me nervous!

We did get an ultrasound picture last night...18 weeks 1 day, Grasshopper is all crooked necked in there!
