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!

Meal-Planning Monday and A Few Miscellaneous Photos....

Soooo, I'm going to take a one or two post break from our vacation. I hope you all don't mind.

It has come to my attention several times recently (by my husband) that I haven't been posting our meal plan out each week. Yep, I have still most definitely been meal-planning, but I haven't posted.

You see -- Marc likes to check this blog at work so he can look forward to certain foods when he's driving home (and if you know Marc, this should NOT surprise you)....

So, here's this week's meal plan....

And, just for fun....

Luke, in recent months, has REALLY taken to wearing sunglasses, playing with sunglasses, and nearly always having sunglasses with him. He mostly wants to play with our sunglasses, BUT both Marc and I have some pretty good quality sunglasses (costing a bit of money to purchase). Therefore, Luke is NOT allowed to play with our sunglasses.

Thankfully, we have a Dollar Tree here in town where I can purchase sunglasses for a whopping one dollar. Then, if they're lost or broken, it's not such a big deal.

Marc took these photos last night...He took them with his iPhone; therefore, even though we both LOVE our iPhones, the photos aren't the best quality.

Looks like his personality is really coming out!

That is so Marc to want to check the menu. I used to always make meal plans and post it on the fridge. Now often I don't have a clue until it is suppertime what we are going to have. Welcome to the world of empty-nesters. The macaroni lasagna sounds good! Can I have the recipe? We'll have one meal together - at the party on Saturday.

Luke - what a "stylin' dude"! :)

Pretty cute!

Diana said...

Thank goodness for Dollar Tree, LOL! We have even gotten ourselves some pretty nice sunglasses from there that lasted for several years. Luke looks like one cool dude in his.

Ayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! (Fonzie imitation from "Happy Days", LOL!)
