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....

I haven't blogged in a week again...It's just been busy, and sometimes, being outside with Luke is much more important than blogging.

But, here's some random things....

On Saturday, June 5 (about 1 1/2 weeks ago), Marc and I celebrated our 6th anniversary. We had a stellar sitter lined up for Luke (Thanks, Hope), and we went out. We started out eating at Jose Pepper's...we then, went bowling where, and write this one down, I actually beat Marc.

Yep, I even snapped a photo of the score...

Then, we did our usual and hung out at Barnes and Noble....

So, while we didn't do anything special, our anniversary is always very special. And, I'm very happy to be married to Marc....I truly don't think I could've found anybody better for me. And, Marc has said that he doesn't think he could've found anybody better for him (yes, he's sweet like that). We also know that God ultimately is the one who fixed us up, and we're thankful for that.

But, earlier that day, before going out, we spent some time outside. It was a very HOT day. Luke and I climbed in his little pool in our backyard. But, despite it being hot, the water hadn't quite warmed up yet. So, Luke did not want to be in the pool.

So instead, he mowed....one of his all-time favorite activities right now.

I love this photo above because, and not to offend anybody, Luke looks like an old man -- mowing with his shirt off and his belly sticking out :)

After mowing, he spent some time in his "new" sandbox.

Finally, Luke was starting to look hot; therefore, I made him spend some time on the shady deck with a shirt on.

Then, this past Saturday, we were at my brother and sister-in-law's house to celebrate our niece's third birthday -- this would be the niece named Natalie.

Shame on me! I didn't take a single photo. But, Natalie and her sister, Grace, received a new sandbox from my parents. So, while the girls were playing in the new sandbox, Luke did his own thing -- of course, mowed.

That's all for now....I hope all of you followers are enjoying your summer as much as we are here in this household!
