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....

What a Week....

What a week it's been....

1) My grandfather, Havey Koehn, passed away on Monday (see earlier post).

2) Marc's uncle, Ted Friesen, passed away the same day.

3) A man whom Marc and I don't feel should be running this country was inaugurated into office on Tuesday -- and then reinaugurated on Wednesday :) On Friday, this new President of our's signed an executive order to allow federal funding to go towards abortions abroad. It makes me sick to my stomach that our tax dollars are going towards abortions.

4) Our good friends from church, Joel and Jess, have a little girl named Cora (10 months old) who was diagnosed with cancer. This started on Thursday. By Friday afternoon, she was in surgery.

Here's a photo of little Miss Cora....PLEASE PRAY for her and her family.

The good news....

**I never knew where my grandfather was spiritually. According to his obituary, he did confess his faith in Jesus Christ on February 5, 1938. That means I'll see him again in heaven someday.

**Marc's Uncle Ted had been suffering for quite some time. His suffering is over, and he is now enjoying heaven.

**Even though we don't think we have a qualified person as President of the USA, we are thankful that we live in a country where we do get to vote for our leaders. We don't live under a dictator. We also know that Mr. Obama does have an extremely difficult job. We will definitely be praying for him as our leader.

**Little Miss Cora came out of surgery safely. Chemo will begin on Monday. We're thankful that we have a healthcare system that allows for "things" to move this quickly. I'm sure her cancer is fast growing. The sooner the chemo gets inside her little body, the sooner the cancer can hopefully go away.

Please pray with us for all of these things.

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5:16-17
