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)

Simple Fun....

I mentioned awhile back on this blog that I'm wanting to document more of the "simple" and "everyday" things on this blog....Yep, I'll keep you posted of some our "other" things in life (such as the LAST POST on the visit to the pumpkin patch), but overall, I'd like to keep this post "toned down" a bit.

So, with that in mind -- I think I've also mentioned before just how much Luke is fascinated by lawnmowers. He especially likes push mowers since that's what Daddy uses. But, he does like other lawnmowers as well.

My grandparents had a farm located a little over half an hour from here....basically between the towns of McPherson, KS, and Galva, KS (for you local readers).

My grandfather passed away not quite two years ago, but my grandmother is still living. She no longer lives on the farm as she definitely can't take care of it. She now lives in an assisted living in town.

But technically, she still owns this farm. My dad and my uncle do some of the basic caretaking of it (the house is cleaned out), and the actual farmland is leased out.

My dad (Luke's Papa) had been asking me for awhile to bring Luke out to the farm for a mower ride....Nope -- nothing real extravagant, but it certainly was right up Luke's alley.

Let's just say that watching Luke's excitement of a simple thing like a lawnmower ride was completely worth the drive.

As you scroll through these photos, take note of one thing....Can you guess what I'm talking about?

Did you see it?

Luke's hand NEVER left the cap (it was my dad's cap he had on). It was the funniest thing to watch -- just how protective he was of keeping that cap on. Let's just say that my dad NEVER once had to stop and pick up a cap.

Good job, Luke!

And, because I did mention that Luke really likes push mowers -- he did get to see on that day as well....

Ah....the simple joys of life!

**A Little Note: This event actually took place almost a month ago. It's funny because now, whenever Luke sees a riding lawnmower, he talks about Papa.
