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!

Muscle Shirt, Bubble Mower, and Weekly Meal Plan....

This past weekend, my friend Sarah H. and I went to Kansas City for a little "Girls' Shopping Trip." I will post more on that later, but here are a couple of things Luke got out of the trip....(Of course, he did get a few things even though it was supposed to be Sarah and me).

First, a "Muscle Shirt"....(And yes, I caught this photo when Luke was pretty tired and ready for a nap; henceforth, the blanket in the face with the thumb in the mouth)

Luke's little friend, Oliver, likes to talk about muscle shirts (I watch Oliver and his sister Lily 1-2 mornings a week). From what I think I understand of Oliver, a "muscle shirt" is a t-shirt without sleeves, and every little boy MUST have one.

Oliver will be happy to know that compliments of this trip to Kansas City, Luke now has several muscle shirts.

Second, we had been looking for a "Bubble Lawnmower" for quite sometime. I was VERY excited when I found one. In fact, I purchased the last one on the shelf at this particular location.

So, Marc put it together for Luke when I returned. We haven't yet put the bubbles in it to play with outside. Luke's MUCH too content inside right now with this.

Let's just say that it's a HUGE hit at our house.

(Is this similar to Graham's, Candice?)

Yes - the bubble mower is a huge hit at our house, too! Don't tell Joel you're not fans of KFC - he might disown you. He's tried multiple times with me - the only thing he can get me to eat there is the rotisserie chicken, and even then, I have reservations! :-)

Diana said...

yes yes yes, every young man MUST have a drawerful of muscle shirts! my boys had them when they were little... uh, they still wear them. LOL! Luke is so cute in his - love the color!

Graham likes his bubble mower, but the bubbles don't work very well.
