Delight Yourself In The Lord....

Psalm 36:7-9
7 How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light.

"God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him." ~John Piper - Desiring God

"If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and to earnestly hope for the enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I suggest that this notion has crept in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian faith. Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling around with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.
" ~C.S. Lewis - "The Weight of Glory"

So I don't necessarily agree with EVERYTHING Bill Johnson teaches... BUT... a LOT of what he says here really hits my heart hard these days. I'm loving this stuff. I'd love to hear your thoughts. :)

Moving Update....(and some random cuteness)

No comments:
Hi friends,

We have been waiting to set a move date for sure because we weren't positive that the sellers of our new house would be moved into THEIR new house in time for us to close on time, thought we might have to extend the contract, etc. BUT.... We found out today that they are ALREADY in the process of moving out! Woohoo!! They plan to be out completely by our scheduled closing date of July 25, which means.... It looks like we will move Sunday afternoon/evening July 31st. YAY!!! So excited to have this season of limbo OVER with and to get into our new home, to paint and unpack and decorate and actually STAY there for a while. :) Haha. Thank you Lord!!

And THAT... is that. I'll leave you with some random cuteness. :)

(I always forget to turn the camera the right way at first when I video....)

T-Rex Cafe has become a totally fun place for our family to go hang and eat. Their food is DELISH, and the atmosphere is so cool. Isaac looooves to look around at all the dinosaurs and fish and other prehistoric craziness. We ended up going there tonight just for fun on a family "date." Here are some pics of Isaac and "Da-da" taking it all in. :)

Annnnnd, out at the fountain with Mom.... Someone was too interested in...well, stop and look at the camera for a picture. :)

Have I mentioned that we have really been enjoying our family time lately? Because we have. :) I love our family. :)
