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....

Marc: Beef Enchiladas
Sarah: Will be eating at Applebee's with Community Life Group Women


How is Luke doing? As you might recall, he started running a fever this past Thursday night.

Well, since then, he has maintained a low-grade fever -- never above 100.8 degrees. He has a slight runny nose, a VERY slight cough, some crankiness, and this morning, a small amount of diarrhea.

Marc was gone all day yesterday (Saturday), and I was home with Luke all day.

This morning, I stayed home from church with Luke because Marc was scheduled to run the lights for all three church services. Then, this evening, we had an event we were both supposed to be at church. I ended up missing it because of Luke. Marc was there for both of us.

This evening started out as "cranky." I was thinking that "I really NEED to get out of the house when Marc gets home this evening." Then, shortly after that, Luke suddenly was better than he had been the last four days. It must have been an answered prayer. We ended up having a great evening after 7:00 P.M. I'm hoping this illness stuff is on its way out of our home :)

I'm going BONKERS from being home too much.

If Luke's not better in the morning, I will call the dr. That'll be four days with a fever.

But, here's a cute, but sad, photo of Luke yesterday (Saturday). I did take one little trip out of the house yesterday -- just to get out. We went and got a Sonic drink and went to the post office to mail something. It felt GREAT to get out.

Then, this morning, when some Tylenol was working, he was playing in our bedroom. He started really being animated with himself in our wall mirror. It was cute to watch for a bit -- before he realized again he was sick and resumed some crankiness.

More than just okay said...

I remember taking mail to the post office drop box instead of our mailbox just to get out many, many times. For some reason, I find it hard just to go for a drive. I have to find some excuse.

Hope your little guy is much better Monday.
