"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.

The Beauty

I have to say that I am rather enjoying winter this year!  In know, I know, all you Minnesota family and friends probably want to throw your frozen tomatos at me or something for saying that since your actual temps today were negative 20-30 degrees!  But I work at home (a blessing) and have been excused from shoveling duty (thanks Cupcake!) and it has been beautiful.  Now while we have had over 40 inches of snow, it usually melts in between our 6-12 inch falls!  We are looking to get another system this weekend that should bring us something (they say 3-6, but I am guessing it will be more because it usually is!) good and this is fine by me.  I have only had one snow day with work and that has been okay too! 

This picture is from last February, we did have snow on the ground but the thick frost on EVERYTHING made it all beautiful!  I am a crazy and would really have a difficult time moving somewhere where we would not get the chance to experience all four seasons.  Fall is my favorite, but they all have their own beauty.  God knew what He was doing when creating the seasons, He gave them to us to celebrate the beauty in each one!

I enjoy winter, I enjoy snow, and I enjoy the excitment of my own two children plus the Pumpkins with each time beautiful snow starts falling from the sky.  What do you enjoy about winter?

Disclaimer~ However, if Cupcake decides to come in the middle of one of our no travel PERIOD 3 foot Spring snows I might have a different outlook....but that would only last a little while!  8-)
