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 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!

Twenty Months....

Today, our little guy, Luke, is twenty months old. Marc and I have really been talking about how much closer he keeps getting to two years (and lately, he sometimes has been acting like he's getting closer and closer to two).

But, nonetheless, we absolutely LOVE this guy.

Marc thinks it feels like we've had him 20 months. I, on the other hand, feel like we've had him 6 months. In other words, time has really gone fast -- at least for me.

Anyways, here are a couple of photos of him in the usual chair.

**And, just so you know -- the very handsome orange shirt he has on is actually his official "Easter" shirt. I realize Easter is still a couple of weeks away, but I was thinking this past week. If spring does hit (which -- it eventually will), he may not be able to wear this long-sleeved shirt very long. And, by next year, he'll have outgrown it. So, Luke will now be getting as much wear as possible in this shirt (per my decison).

Today, in church, he received several compliments on the shirt. "Oh, he looks like such a little man in that shirt." "Oh, he looks like such a little Marc in that shirt."

Yep -- it was worth it to wear even two weeks before Easter. He sure does look nice in it.

And, one more thing....just for fun....

Here's a photo of Luke at eight months old, in the same chair -- exactly one year ago today.

Today when I took him from you to take him back to the Ladybug classroom, he just seemed sooo grown up. Heavier and more like a little man! Not so much a toddler anymore! Goodness! Before you know it, he'll be going to kindergarten!! (I hope that doesn't make you cry.)

Wowwwwwwww! Yep, he looks like Marc, but he sure has a lot of you, too! LOVE that orange shirt. VERY Spring-y! Luke, I have a new orange shirt, too! :-)

I'm watching my grandkids grow up so fast along with everyone's kids on the web!
