"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.

My 'Funny' Little Issues

So I have this thing, okay so I have lots of 'things.  But this one in particular is how a smell can instantly bring me back to a certain event, place, time, thought, moment, can be days, months, or years ago. 

But one 'thing' is how the smell of lavendar brings me back to when my little Princess was a baby.  To me little girl babies should smell like lavendar ~ that just the way it should be!  Any time I smell it I think of the week that her and I stayed in a small little apartment in her birth state many miles away from home and Daddy!  I used lavendar soap and lotion on her from the beginning and now that smell brings me back to her tiny baby days!

So naturally, since Cupcake is a girl, my thought is that the very same scent should be used for her so I can remember them both as babies by smelling the beautiful purple scent!  So much so that I had to buy a special body wash for myself to use at the hospital and shortly after we get home so that I will be brought back to the very first few days of her life!  While we were shopping today I told Handsome my thoughts and expected him to think I was crazy (I already had some stocked up body wash and lotion packed in my hospital bag...but it wasn't sitting well with me!)  He either didn't want to disagree with a pregnant lady or he really did think it was logical.  He does know how scents bring me back and he knows what 'smell goods' he should stay away from because they bring me back to the other couple of guys I dated before him....not what a husband wants to do!  So we spent 10 minutes in the body wash isle trying to find an adult lavendar body wash and there was only one.  Not one I would have normally chosen because of the brang, but there was one....and we bought it!  My next shopping trip I plan on parking it in the lotion isle to find a same scented lotion to use too! 

Oh the craziness...and I cannot even blame this one on pregnancy!

Thanks Handsome for understanding!
