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!

Early Monday Ramblings and Weekly Menu....

It's 12:30 A.M. Local Time, and I'm still up....NOT because I want to be. My wonderful husband and cute child are sleeping soundly.

I'm up because I have this "one heck of a headcold." I'm SOOOOOO congested. I'm sipping hot tea in hopes that the steam will help decongest me a bit.

I do NOT like nightime cold medicine. I'm a ZOMBIE the next day. Marc suggested I try and sleep with some daytime cold medicine. I'm trying that, but I'm waiting until I decongest even just a bit before I prop my head up on the couch.

I don't want to draw too much attention to myself, but today, Monday, March 1, is my birthday.

Yep, I'm the BIG 34 today! WHOA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hopefully, I can breathe most of the day.

My dad's coming to take Luke and me out to lunch. Tonight, after Marc gets home, we're going out to eat -- as a family. This weekend, Marc and I actually have a date night planned (it doesn't happen often enough). My parents will be watching Luke for the evening.

I'll post more on my birthday later in the week. There's a song I'll post with that sometime -- a song that talks about being thankful for the life God gave me.

Happy Birthday, dear friend!! I don't think I remember 34. I think Josh was 11 years old then, Jill was 8 and Mindy was 4. Long time ago!

Diana said...

Well, I'm only a few hours late, but mean it all the same...

♥ HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SARAH! ♥

Hope your next year is filled with joy and blessings and lots of happy times!

Chamomile tea... that's what I do. Easy on the throat and just plain makes me feel better when I have such a bad cold, too.

Hope you start feeling better quickly!
