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!

Chits and Meal Plan For the Week....

In case you didn't already know it, CHIPS (as in, potato chips) are Luke's Junk Food of Choice.

In fact, instead of candy, my mom bought him some potato chips for Easter...Gotta love the Grandma gift, right?

But, he doesn't say "chips" properly. He says, "Chits."

Yes, it sounds a little like a certain swear word when he says it.

So, if you're around him sometime and you hear, "Chits," he's simply asking for potato chips.

Luke's gotten to where he thinks anything packaged in a bag is a "chit." We frequently have to try and explain to him (in 21-month old lingo) that not everything in a bag is a "chit."

This evening, for example, I was opening this bag because we were having a salad.

We said, "No Luke -- they're not chips."

He proceeded to sign "Please" and then sit down on the floor to wait on his snack of "chits."

Finally, Marc grabbed a bowl and gave him some "chits" -- at least Luke's version of them for this evening (a.k.a. chips).

Luke was then a happy and contented little boy.

Oh -- how we LOVE this little guy oh so very much!


And, here's our meal plan for the week....

Graham LOVES ships as well. I swear he'd eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner if we'd let him! Ugh!

ROTFL!! I caught the "chits" on the Monday menu.

We don't do a lot of "chits"... but amazingly I do have that same brand of croutons on hand sometimes. I LOVE those, especially the one that is garlic-herb, or butter-herb, something like that. I am happy too when I'm munching on those. LOL!

I have missed visiting your blog the past few weeks. I actually think we saw you guys at the park one evening... but we were across the creek sitting on the bench. Jerry had to take his usual rest during a walk, and we happened to stop there.

Off to read more of what's been going on with you guys.... :-D
