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!

Various Things Since I Haven't Blogged in a Few Days....

This past Wednesday evening, we took Luke swimming again at our neighbors' house. It was a cold evening, and so, to get there, I had a jacket on him with his hat. Rather than taking him there in pants, I took him there in his swimming trunks and wrapped him in two blankets. As you can see from this photo, he didn't much care for the look. Once we got in the pool, though, he did just fine.

Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. Psalm 147:5

Last night (Friday) and throughout a good portion of today, it snowed here -- quite a bit. Some scientists and others who are convinced that we're experiencing a catastrophic climate change thanks to all of the bad carbon emissions we're putting into the atmosphere might suspect that this winter storm this late in the season here in Kansas is a sign of dramatic climate change. I, on the other hand, think that it could possibly be God showing us or reminding us of his power. We serve a very powerful God, a very mighty God, and nothing is beneath Him.

Here's a photo from this morning, on our deck. I LOVE how snow collects on top of our table.

My wonderful husband kept us VERY warm (almost too warm) with a fire in our fireplace.

Thanks to the storm, I ended up not working yesterday. Therefore, Luke and I have had probably too much "indoor time." Fortunately today, Marc was home with us, so Luke got to have some "Daddy Time" -- which he LOVES.

We did get out this evening for Ollie's birthday party. Luke did well until a little after 8:00 P.M. He because suddenly very fussy, and I could tell by the "type" of fussiness that there wasn't going to be too much to calm him down. So, we left. Of course, as soon as we got in the car and subsequently home, he was happy as can be :) (I don't think it was your house, Smith's -- it was Luke being PICKY Luke).

This past Thursday evening, I suddenly, out of the blue, had a scratchy throat. I told Marc, "This feels like a cold coming on. Where did this come from?" I was at the grocery store that evening, and I was so sure that it was a cold that I even picked up some cold medication.

Sure enough -- Friday morning -- very congested. I fought it all day on Friday (thankfully, I was off work). Last night, I really didn't feel well, and I haven't felt the greatest today.

I'm hoping that neither Luke nor Marc catch this. It's really not fun. So, here's my cold paraphernalia that's been very important to me for the last two days.

Until I blog again....Tootles!

I hope you get to feeling better. And I am glad you got to be inside nice and warm! We were in Wichita when the weather hit and had to drive all the way back to Indy, It took us almost an extra hour to get back!
