San Franciso outing!

It was GORGEOUS in San Francisco today! We got there right after the fog was gone and it was warm with a cool breeze!! We ended up going to the zoo and then ate at our favorite hole in the wall Chinese restaurant. When I was little, my dad would always take us to San Francisco and we would walk around Fisherman's Wharf or just go on a scenic drive through the city. I love going there. It always brings back good memories for me. Unfortunately, there are alot of things that my children may possibly see since it's so liberal in the city, but at the same time, it's the perfect opportunity for my children to see how your life can turn out if you don't put God first and have no convictions of what you are doing (or lack of). It's not that we feel like we are self righteous (the bible says, "As it is written, there is none not righteous, no not one. Romans 3:10), it's just that we know how our lives could/would be without the Lord. For the most part, my children are not exposed to many "worldy" things, so it's a good contrast to also see the reality of living a life void of Jesus. It's the perfect time for us to speak to them about choices they make when they get older, and to do what is pleasing to the Lord. Not that we are perfect (that's why we desperately need God's grace everyday), but we are to not conform to this world. The bible says to be a part of this world but not BE OF the world. Big difference there! Without Him, we would not know what true Joy was, or even acknowledge that God is control. Even when we don't understand certain things that happen, we know that everything will work out for Gods glory. Thank you Lord, that we are able to have a relationship with you, and that you not only guide us, but love us more than we can fathom.
