"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.

Milk ~ liquid gold (though gas is becoming more of liquid gold) ~ but I have always thought of milk as such.  I love milk, I grew up on a farm and we were never without milk!  Going away to college I didn't have as much milk as I did growing up at home and that was a problem for me, but it helped set the pace for married life without a ton of money.  When we first got married we literally lived paycheck to paycheck and didn't usually have alot left over.  So we would buy milk because it is important to the body, but we only were allowed some on our cereal (if we had cereal) and a glass at the evening meal.  None of this ~ drink all you want ~ stuff! 

Then kids entered the picture, and while I do not let my children drink all the milk they want, it is important to their growing bodies we started having a little more around.  Now I have a daycare and so we have a little more than that around.  Until Sunday. 

Being in my 3rd trimester I have not exactly had the most ambission in the world and when my day at the Patch is finished I am pretty well tired so getting to the store isn't something that happens like it should sometimes, but if we are getting low on milk that is usually insentive enough ~ LIQUID GOLD!~  However, in the midst of another busy weekend some how we managed to drink the last of the milk on Sunday night and I was not able to get out and get some before work on Monday.  Then Monday we had plans so we went two entire days without the beloved liquid gold.  This is terrible, I know, and being pregnant my body needs that milk.  Having a daycare we NEED that around!  So when we finally made it to the store we bought 4 gallons!!!  I feel like I am trying to make up for lost time and am enjoying greatly going to the fridge several times a day for a glass!

Not the most important post in the world....but liquid gold is an amazing thing and I can promise that unless it happens while I am giving birth to Cupcake, we will not be running out of milk any time in the near future!
