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!

Meal Planning Monday....on a Sunday evening....

So, I'm somewhat organized this week, and I actually have our week's meal planning completed this evening (Sunday). And, I even have my grocery list made out for tomorrow when Luke and I go on our big weekly shopping trip (don't get used to this organization).

Anyways, it's going to be "use as much stuff as we have in the house week." Keep that in mind as you see our meal plan.

And, because I can't post without a photo, here's one of our little guy....

Lately, Luke's taken to merely just sitting between some shelves and our wine cellar. We find it to be interesting and funny. Please take note of the holes in his jeans. Luke decided to crawl (instead of walk) for so long that some of his pants have holes now. We just chuckle about that.


And, how about another "Sarah 6th grade poem?" (Please refer to my last post if you have no idea what I'm talking about).

March Flowers -- Written by Sarah Koehn on March 1, 1988 (which happened to be the day of my 12th birthday)

March is when the flowers bloom
The flowers are very beautiful I assume,
They bloom in the sun in the spring
I go to my Grandma and say,
"These are the March flowers I bring."
Oh, when the March flowers bloom.

Again -- Award-winning material, I know.
