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)

*****

This past weekend, we entered into Daylight Savings Time. So, as you all know, we LOST an hour of sleep Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Luke did O.K. with the time change, but I did have to wake him up for church (not usual).

Marc had to be at church early this past Sunday because he was on "lights" for the services.

I walked in to Luke's room to wake him up, and this is what I found....a very sweet sleeping boy that I really didn't want to have to wake up. But, I did anyways.

Rarely can I walk into his room in the morning and NOT wake him up just merely by walking into his room -- let alone, take a photo :)



*****

And, also at church, each family, upon request, has a mailbox for communication, cards, etc.

After taking Luke to the nursery on Sunday morning, I went to check our mailbox. This is what I found....



Is somebody trying to "drop one of us a hint" that our breath(s) stink? I really hope not.

Do any of you who go to church with us know about this toothpaste in my box? Did any of you get any as well?

We sincerely apologize if our breaths stink!

LoL about the stinky breath. Gosh, that would be a rude way to let you know!

That pic of Luke is so sweet. I have to wake Graham up pretty often. I hate it. He always looks so precious and cozy. I feel ike a mean mama, but you gotta do what you gotta do!

Diana said...

ROTFL! I hear a stinky breath chant coming on... oh, maybe not. Hopefully they were just passing out trial sizes?

I'm like Luke... I was still snoozing away yesterday morning and had to be awakened... unusual for me, too. LOL!

Sleeping boys make for sweet photos, for sure ;)

By the way... I keep forgetting to tell you how much we LOVE that oriental salad recipe of yours, the one that uses the Ramen noodles. The only change I made to it is we use sunflower nuts instead of sesame seeds {we don't like those} and of course leave out the salt. In just the couple months since you gave it to me, I think we've had it, ohhhh, at least a half dozen times! So soooo good! {I know someone who adds golden raisins to the recipe!}

That's hilarious. No. We did NOT put that in there...but I have never noticed your breath being a little sour. :-)

You DO NOT have stinky breath. Maybe Tippin's had a run on trial packages?
