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)

Will be eating with Community Life Group at Seth & Sarah's house

**In case you're wondering -- Marc is participating in a Kansas Ultrarunners' Society group run on Saturday, March 13. They are running a 50 km (31 miles) group run. It will be an all-day event. That's why we're "carb-loading" at the end of the week (pasta on both Thursday and Friday).


Since Luke didn't take off walking until the winter and this winter has been cold, snowy, and icy, Luke hasn't had much experience walking outside on different surfaces. Though we spent quite a bit of time at the park last summer, it will drastically different this summer.

The other day, it was fairly nice outside. So, I took him to the park after being at the library for Toddler Storytime. To say he enjoyed it would be a DRASTIC understatement. To say that he threw a major fit when I said it was time to go would be a DRASTIC understatement.

Here are a few photos.

And, the fit when we left...NOTHING would satisfy him -- not even the blanket.

Aww...I've seen that same face with Eli many times leaving the park! You will be busy this summer keeping up with him at the park!

Don't you love how they put together that park area! That one is the favorite of our grandkids... and us... because it suits all the kids' ages. And we can just walk around the block to get there. Hop, skip and jump along the walking path, cross the bridge and there it is. Yes, we are basically just a block away. *wink*

Wish I was much younger sometimes... I really like the play equipment nowadays, LOL!

LOVE the photo of Luke by the slide... and the fit, well, at least we know he's human, right? :-)
