Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

New Blinds and New Skill....

This isn't quite as exciting as a new dishwasher in my opinion, but Marc has been REALLY excited about these....new blinds in our family room.

If you've ever been in our house, you know that it's an early 1970s ranch-style house. In other words, it's not really that open, and the windows are small.

We've had these older blinds on our three small windows in our family room since we've lived here. Well, over time, they've started to break. It's taken a "trick" to get them opened to let light in. In fact, one time, my mom was over here watching Luke. She tried to open one, and she had a bit of a problem. She thought she had broken one when in fact, she had not. It was just the bad blinds.

Here's a photo of one of the old blinds. They don't necessarily look bad and you can't tell from the photo, but they are broken.

And Voila -- the new blinds (actually on all three windows)....Oh, they're certainly nice. PLUS, they open easily. So Mom -- next time you're over here, you'll be able to control the blinds yourself.

On a Luke note -- he has, in the last week or so, figured out how to better hold his bottle by himself. He generally only does it when he chooses to (so not all of the time). But, the frequency of him doing it is increasing. Plus, he's still a little uncoordinated with it. Sometimes, he bumps the nipple on the bottle into his chin. Then, he can't figure out what to do from there.
Oh, it's so amazing what babies have to learn -- every little thing about living.
In this photo, he's even holding it with only one hand...Wow!
