The Battle Between Truth & Feelings

"The worst battle I've ever fought is between what I knew and what I felt." How true is this?  Emotions and feelings can feel so like truth.  They can be so blinding, leading us on a goose chase to get what we think (feel) we need.  They become the thing we live for and strive after.  They can lead you away from good friendships, from the truth you grew up learning, running from good and clear counsel.  It's so dangerous to chase after your feelings, believe them to be truth over everything else- over true wisdom, truth, honesty, true love and friendship, and blind you to follow after the worlds version of truth or what your heart wants.  How scary is that.  What we know is truth... We know as believers that God's word is the only source of truth.  It is our anchor, our truth, what we live by.  When the world feeds us lies and these half-truths fueled to feed our sinful desires, we can always turn to God's word to lead us and guide us in our lives. 

My Dad's B-day!

 
My dad's birthday was a few days, I guess more like a couple weeks ago now and we celebrated as always...special dinner and dessert. 

I actually remembered to take a few pictures...so here they are!
 
 
...The whole set up before he got home from work...

Owen, there for every minute.  I don't know who is more excited, him or dad.


 
Perfect





 

Cake time!









 
We did the usual, a walk on the beach, dinner, and dessert.  Last year we did have a surprise party for him, but this year it was just us.  We had a nice and fun time together.
I am so thankful for him, with all we have been through and all he has been through he is such a good example to us all.  Of what a slave of the Lord should look like, of what a husband and father should look like. We have all grown so much closer to God and to each other in these last five year.  Life brings challenges, heartaches, sicknesses, sorrows-trails. Things that make us lean on Christ, because without Him we would be nothing, we can do nothing and would always be discouraged, searching and striving towards something, that when we get, it isn't enough-we want more.  We can only be satisfied in Christ.
Sooner or later everyone will realize this and I know that my dad has and that he has taught us this so many times.  That no matter what we do, whether it be hard or easy do all to the glory of God.
I just wanted to share and encourag and dad has been my inspiration today!
Thank you and...don't forget to be AWESOME!
