"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.

January 2nd

January 2nd 2011 marks a very special day, our Sunshine has been in our lives for 4 years now!  While he was born in December 2006, we was not released from the hospital into foster care until January 2nd 2007 ~ when he was just six days old!  We were blessed enough to be the ones that got the call to be his foster parents and then even more blessed to become his legal parents! 

I still remember sitting in the basement of the church (where we lived at the time) feeding my 3 month old daughter (Princess) and getting and unknown number call that turned out to be our social worker!  It was 3:41 PM and the worker asked me if we had an extra crib...I told him we had a pack n play but that I didn't allow people I don't know to use our things.  He replyed with a, "we don't want to barrow it, we want to fill it!"  He explained there was a newborn at the hospital here in town that they needed a foster home for and were wondering if we would like to be the foster parents for this child.  Without calling my husband I said, "YES!" and was asked to be at the hospital in 15 mintues!  I went not knowing how old or if I would be picking up a boy or a girl...the ladies on the maternity floor thought I was nuts when I came walking in with my 3 month old daughter in her carseat and said I was there to pick up a newborn foster baby!  We also didn't realize then that this foster baby would become our legal son!  What a blessing!

That day stands out in my mind like it was yesterday!  Sunshine, yet again I can say we are so thankful that God put you in our lives!  While you make each day a little more difficult, you also brighten it too! 


On another note, Happy 29th Anniversary to my parents!
