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)

Twenty-Two Months....

Today, our little guy is 22 months old. Oh my -- he's almost 2! Can you believe it? We certainly cannot....

So, here's the photo on the chair....

You'll notice Luke is reading a book this time in the chair...He's reading this book.

He actually received this book before he was born. I had put it on our registry at Target. If I'm not mistaken, and please correct me if I'm wrong, it came as a gift from Debby and Jill at one of my baby showers.

The book has some cool "movement" to it inside. It's one of those books I had stuck on his shelf to wait until he was older (as to avoid tearing all of the "moving" parts). But, the other day, he found it. Luke was SO excited about it, and he's really been reading it a lot.

Yes, I've already had to "fix" something in the book. But, that's O.K. He's learning from it, and I LOVE that he likes to read. I frequently find him doing this...

And, just for fun -- here's the "chair photo" from a year ago today.

Marc just said this evening, "We don't think he changes much, but then, we look at these photos. He's really changed a lot!"

Oh -- how we love this little guy of our's!

Graham is always destroying his books. He's rough on them. I can't sit there with him exery second, and I don't want to keep him from them so I just say, "Oh well!"

I've only been reading your blog a few months and I can see a big difference in Luke every few weeks. He is growing soooo fast. It's so different recording our children's (or grandchildren's, hehe) years in these blogs compared to just the picture-taking like when my boys were toddlers like that. I like these blog things... but I still like the actual photos in my hands, too. =)
