"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.

Thinking Back!

We love where we live!  There are so many fun places to go and beautiful things to see and most are free!  One of our favorite places is the drive up the canyon where you can see a few waterfalls.  This past summer we did that often, because there is also hiking that you can do too!  Well this particular time we went with my mom and Handsome's parents.  I remember feeling 'fat' that day and after looking at pictures thinking my belly was swollen and not being happy because of the hard work I was putting into getting healthy and in shape!  Well looking back that swollen belly was working on growing the smallest little one that is now less than 10 weeks from entering our world!  What a shock it is to look back at pictures from June & July 2010 now and say 'cute, my little belly was swollen due to Cupcake and I didn't even know!"  But then when I looked at the pictures I was just discusted that I wasn't working hard enough or what have you. 

God is good to us in so many ways!  We have our Princess and Sunshine, we are expecting our Cupcake, and still waiting to hear news about our Texas baby!  When the time is right God will allow the 'perfect' birth mommy to find our profile and pick us as her precious babies adoptive family.  But we also are looking at 8 1/2 wonderful years togeter as a married couple.  Meeting some of the greatest friends in the last year and all sorts of other amazing things!  While there are many things that feel like they are falling apart, we feel solid as a family.  Handsome, Mama, Princess, Sunshine, Cupcake, and Texas baby are a solid family that will be together and enjoy life every single day!  That is a blessing!
