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)

Luke Randoms, Part 3....

Click HERE to read about why (sort of) I'm posting random photos of Luke.

For today's photos, I'll first mention that all BUT one photo is from last night (after yesterday's post).

After supper last night, I pulled out the VERY FEW crafting supplies I own (nope -- I'm not crafty, and I will probably never claim to be). I do not own too many supplies at this point in time.

I had already cut out some "L" shapes as well as a few photos of items which start with the letter "L."

First, I had Luke glue on a few things to an 8.5" X 14" piece of paper.

Then, I pulled out some stickers and crayons, and I let Luke go to work.

Luke's not for coloring for long periods of time (at least as of yet), but he did for a bit. And, he most definitely, of course, liked the stickers.

The final product....A placemat (after I covered it with Con-Tact paper) with the letter "L" and a few pictures of "L" things (including "Luke").

Personally, I envisioned Luke's little project as having a bit more color and such, but I let him color until he was ready to stop coloring (which wasn't very long). So, even though it wasn't exactly as I envisioned, it's Luke's project. Therefore, I'm happy with that.

And, this morning, for breakfast, he ate on this placemat. He seemed pretty excited when he realized what he had made -- he noticed himself right away on the placemat.


Jumping back to last night -- Luke spent some time in a dining room chair. He's been doing that lately; I think it's for no other reason that "he can."

He sat in the chair, eating crackers, while wearing two hats.

And then, Luke "lounged" in the dining room chair....I was thinking that wasn't suppoed to happen until teenage years, but perhaps I'm wrong on that one.

Believe it or not, that's all I have for now....

Until next time....

For not being crafty, the placemat is pretty good! Cute idea! I love his 2 hats! Luke and his hats. So fun!

Super cute. I love the placemat too. And I am not crafty at all. I steal all my ideas from unassuming friends like you. :) Love all the stories.
