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)

About the Friesen's....

We are Marc, Sarah, Luke, and Kate Friesen. We were married June 5, 2004. We have one son, born July 21, 2008, named Luke Andrew -- now 4 years old. We also have a daughter named Kate Christine -- born June 6, 2012. Marc is working at Cessna as a Senior Accountant, and Sarah stays home full-time with Luke. Sarah also gets to work very part-time at home for Graber Backhoe -- an excavation company AND VERY part-time at our church. We LOVE being a part of Grace Community Church here in Newton, KS. We lead a Community Life Group of other wonderful couples. Marc thoroughly enjoys long-distance running and Taekwondo. Sarah thoroughly enjoys walking -- especially when the weather is nice to take Luke and/or out in the stroller. Thanks for reading our blog!

A Song That Says It All....

It seems as if there's so much going on that needs prayer right now.

1) CORA (See "The Macs" blog on the left side of this blog if you don't already know about the intense need for prayer for little Cora).

2) Job Losses: So many people right now in the country have lost their jobs due to the economy. It's starting to hit Wichita now. "Cessna" (where Marc works) is in the process of announcing layoffs. Not only do Cessna layoffs potentially affect Marc but also one other guy from our small group as well as several other guys we know from Sunday School.

3) On a much lesser note, I've been having a bit of a time lately getting myself organized and adjusted to everything I need to get accomplished despite staying home part-time. At this point in time, I'm almost feeling more stressed than when I was working full-time.

Today, I was rocking Luke before his nap. All of a sudden, a wonderful song popped into my head that I learned as a child in Sunday School. I know many of you know it. Doesn't it just speak the truth? So Simple, Yet So Powerful....Here it is....

My God is so big, so strong and so mighty.
There's nothing my God cannot do (Clap Clap)

My God is so big, so strong and so mighty.
There's nothing my God cannot do (Clap Clap)

The mountains are His.
The valleys are His.
The stars in the sky are His too (Clap Clap).

My God is so big, so strong and so mighty.
There's nothing my God cannot do (Clap Clap).

When I sang it to Luke, he just looked at me and grinned. Someday, he'll probably do the motions with me. Oh, how cute that will be.....

On a completely other note -- today in the mail was a "Happy Mail Day" for me. I received my second necklace with a photo of Luke.

I recently met a woman at work who makes these necklaces. She takes photos from you of your child (or children) and puts them in glass for a pendant. I ordered one back in November. I just ordered another one.

This photo doesn't do them any justice, but they are wonderful to wear around -- especially if you're not with your child. It's a great reminder to always pray for your child or children as well as a simple way to show them off :)

She also does glass magnets. One of these magnets is Luke. The other is a magnet for the upcoming holiday of Valentine's Day.

If you'd like one, give me a call or shoot me an e-mail. I'll let you know how to get a hold of Dana -- the woman who does these.

Sarah,
I've found your blog through other Grace goers (Balzers, Kirtleys,e tc.) I've enjoyed your posts about Luke.I'm very interested in getting a necklace like the one you showed of my little guy and I have a feeling I know some other mommies and grandmas who might like them as well. Would you mind giving me the contact info.? You can leave me a message on my blog: livesays.blogspot.com

Thanks!
Sarah Livesay
