"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.

Our Love Bug...2015

Where or where do you start with this crazy goof???  She has been hilarious and always keeps us laughing!  She opened up a ton this year!  From holding her ears and crying anytime we were in public to actually enojoying it, interacting with others and getting excited for things like church and Christmas Parties!  Amazing transformation!  She has also grown up the most since last year!  Lost her baby pudge on her face and really shot up height wise as well!

With this girl you are guaranteed two things, a good laugh and a movie script!  Her movie of the moment is know the adorable little creature who spins and says 'my hands are in the air like I just do not care!'  That, amoung many other, is one of the lines she quotes from the movie....when she isn't quoting movies (and trying to get you to be the opposite character) she is either singing or quoting her scripture verses.
This year she memorized:
Genesis 1:1,
Proverbs 3:5&6,
Psalm 119:105,
Psalm 119:11,
John 3:16,
Romans 3:23,
Romans 6:23,
Romans 5:8 (her favorite!)
Romans 10: 9&10
Romans 10:13 and
Romans 5:1

Very impressed with this girl!!!  While her body is what gives her the trouble, it surely seems like her mind does very well!

Some of her favorite songs are We Believe, Down to the River, Flawless, Greater, Hairy Christmas, Jingle Bells and We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

This year brought some big advances in our Love Bug's care!  She was able to (FINALLY) get her push/wheel chair and she was able to get bigger AFO's (leg braces!)  She also started announcing things that she likes and does not like....this was huge, we were told she would never be able to show preference for anyone or any thing!  The way she loves her Buzz Buzz and Lena is just a tip of the iceburg there!  Her Daddy is pretty quick to allow her to purchase almost anything that she says "I LIKE......"   It started with her new tennis shoes for school!  We were shopping the clearance rack at a local sporting goods store where she found one of the more popular brand of tennis shoes in mint and lilac...I was looking for a better bargain but she very clearly said while tapping me on the shoulder, "I like shoes!"  I tried to show her a few other (less expensive) shoes and she kept pointing to her first choice reclaiming "I LIKE SHOES!"  Daddy said we couldn't very well deny her very first request!!!  ;)  Things have gone down hill from there....mostly in treats and the shoe department!  ;)

She loves water, it doesn't matter if it is the tub, our little blow up pool, a puddle or a hike near the would keep her busy for hours!  Just the other day she turned down pizza because "I stay in tub a little bit!"  Mama ended up bringing grapes, apples and orange slices for her to munch on in there!  She loves her water!

She also seems to really love Christmas.  The lights, the music, the Christmas Tree!  She is such a joy to have in this family...God knew we needed her to keep things light around here!
