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!

Luke Photos (of course) and Weekly Menu Plan....

Whoa -- I haven't blogged in a full week again....I really don't have a good excuse this time.

I've decided I need to keep my blog posts shorter....then I'll probably blog more.

With that in mind, here goes....

A couple of weekends ago, I was in Kansas City. I picked Luke up this little bubble mower (I think I already had posted about this).

Anyways, to say that Luke LOVES this mower would be an understatement.

I think our house has been "mowed" many times over.

(And yes, Candice, you were right. The bubbles did not work well at all. In fact, we found them to be quite lame).

This past Saturday, we went to a couple of graduation receptions. One of them was in the town I grew up in -- about a 40 minute drive.

Luke has really taken to reading in the car (this was on the way to one of the receptions).

(Sorry this photo is a bit blurry...I must have moved the camera. Also, if you look closely, Luke's face is a bit red. When I took this photo, he had just gotten over a meltdown. What was it about? Who knows?)

Missed you all week. Just isn't the same unless I visit you.

Wow, Luke looks like he has grown in the past week!

You probably have the best-mowed carpet in town, huh. LOL! Too bad about the bubbles.

Mmmmmm... I might steal a few of your menu ideas this week! Or all of them, LOL!

And of course you WOULD mention that Hog Wild food... now I'm hungry and it's midnight, LOL!
