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!

Genetics....

So many people take one look at Luke and say, "Whoa, Luke looks just like his daddy." That comment has been made NUMEROUS TIMES since Luke's birth.

In the last several months, however, a few people have actually said that Luke is starting to look a little more like me.

That's good because I was starting to wonder if people realized that I too had something to do with the creation of (and not to mention, the birth of) Luke.

I do admit that Luke does look like Marc, in some ways. Luke definitely has what Marc calls, "The Friesen Forehead." It's the long, very pronounced forehead that Marc has. Marc's dad, Alvin, also has this forehead. Marc's grandfather, Abraham, also had this forehead (though he passed away many years ago). Marc's uncles also have this forehead.

Luke's profile also looks like Marc, I think. I have a really cool sonogram picture of Luke's profile less than a week before he was born. Yep, it's Marc's profile -- even in the sonogram picture.

Well, Luke does frequently gets his eyes complimented. He has those nice blue eyes.

I think he gets those from me (Wink Wink). Marc would say they were from him.

Marc does, however, think that Luke's nose, mouth, and chin come from me.

Here's a photo of me when I was just a little over two years old.



Here's a couple of photos I've taken of Luke the past couple of days. These photos do show his nice eyes. You can, in my opinion, see the resemblance of my nose to his. Also, Marc thinks the chins look similar. I'm not sure about the mouth.

Excuse his messy hair in this photo :)



This next photo was taken this evening. Marc was lying on the deck after mowing. Luke just hung out with him.



How do the rest of you feel about how our genetics worked out for Luke?

I can see Luke in you, especially that one of when you are a little girl. You were such a cute little girl (still cute too). And, yes, he does look like Daddy too. Both of you!

I hear that ALL the time about Eli! Everyone always says he looks like his daddy! If you look at some baby pictures of me, he does have some similarities! I guess it's ok for boys to look like their daddy's!!

I think there are some similarities. Luke can't get all his good looks from his daddy. I think we tend to think that the child should look like the same gender parent. One of my friend's son looks like his mom (at least that is what I think). However everyone marvels at how much he looks like his father. Crazy! Part of it may just be your perspective. By the way that is a very cute picture of little Sarah! Have a great day!

Wow! He does look just like you. We have the same thing going. Graham has my eyes and nose, yet everyone think he looks JUST like daddy. I'm sure that it's partially because he's a boy.
