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)

I think I've mentioned on this blog before that Luke REALLY likes lawnmowers -- especially push mowers. If I haven't mentioned it, I'm mentioning it now.

Luke will notice lawnmower ANYWHERE when we're walking, and he'll remember where we last saw a lawnmower.

Luke was sad about a month ago at my parents' house when my dad had his lawnmower moved to a different location than what Luke is used to.

When at Uncle Joel's and Aunt Amber's house, Luke has to go and look at Uncle Joel's lawnmower.

This past summer, when at our friends' house (Kendall & Joel), Kendall would have to get out their lawnmower just so Luke could look at it (Thanks, Kendall).

I could on and on and on about Luke and lawnmowers.

Last Friday, Marc took the day off from work to be at home and get some "maintenance" stuff done around the house. At one point, Luke stood at our sliding door (which leads to our back yard) and said over and over "uh mow, uh mow, uh mow" which means lawnmower in "Luke-Speak."

Marc finally took him outside and got the lawnmower out of the shed. Luke just stood there and looked at it awhile.

Then, Marc did the ultimate...He started up the lawnmower, just for Luke.


In the words of my mother -- "Life is Good!"

mowers are a powerful thing to a kid, huh? glad to know mine isn't the only one obsessed with mowers... our neighbor has had his John Deere rider out for over a week (yes, i don't understand why he'd leave it OUTDOORS for that time...)...when we play on the swingset, K stares over at the "moe-errr" and talks about it... :) even motorcycles in the distance are announced, excitedly, as "moe-errrs" at our house, too :)
yet another reason why Luke and K should play :) we could just give them mowers and they'd be happy as clams :) it's the simple things in life...thankfully... :) in about 14 years, they're going to be saying, "car....car...car" and we'll be thinkin' about buying them a nice rider for $1200, huh? :) hehehe :)
"Sweetie, this sweet red mower will get you to school...and the boys/girls will be so impressed..." :) hehe :)
<3 the pics :)

Jobie loves mowers too. When Ryan mows with the riding mower he is always with him. And when I push mow, he gets out one of his three mowers. I know pitiful. The boy has three mowers. All from different people on his 2nd birthday. They all knew him well! : )
