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 4....

If you want a brief explanation of these "randoms," click HERE.

Today, it's dreary, cloudy, a bit windy, yucky, rainy, and even for a bit -- snowy.

So, we've been inside all day -- really had no reason to go out (though, honestly, I'm going to find a reason a little later -- this Mama needs out for a bit).

Lily was here this morning. Lily is the almost 2 year-old little girl who stays here 1-2 mornings a week (depending on time of year). She is the daughter of some friends of our's....Joel and Kendall.

Here are a bunch of "random" photos from this morning and early afternoon.

Luke, once again, ate breakfast in his "Choo-Choo" hat. He also ate with a few assorted cars (also becoming the norm).

After he finished a decent breakfast, I allowed him to have some juice (he doesn't get juice with breakfast because that's probably all he'd have)....I actually don't mind him having a sippy cup in the family room, but for some reason lately, he's been into having juice in the kitchen. But, this time, he chose to be out of his booster seat.

Here are a few of the things the kids did this morning to entertain themselves. Sometimes, I do admire their ability to come up with things to do. Other times, it's clear they're bored, and I need to be a bit more intentional in coming up with things to do.

Lily -- playing with blocks....She actually did this for quite awhile.

Lily -- waving a flag....Luke did this as well, but I didn't get a photo. Also, if you notice that Lily is carrying a blanket -- it's one of Luke's. She insisted on having a blanket this morning, probably because she saw Luke with him blanket.

Both Luke and Lily tend to like to play with seatbelt buckles (on the booster seats). This morning was no exception, but I do think that Lily beat out Luke on this one this morning (Luke wasn't as interested in that today).

Both kids had their mid-morning snack of cheese crackers and water.

Luke, like a true boy, insisted on rolling his cars through the chair slats and making the cars CRASH to the floor -- over and over again.

Lily played with the telephone -- I think she called her Daddy maybe nothing short of 50 times -- VERY CUTE!

Toward the end of the morning, I turned on one of our Praise Baby DVDs....Lily didn't really care about it. Luke, on the other hand, settled down for a bit with his blanket and thumb :)

After Lily left at noon, Luke and I had lunch.

After lunch, Luke headed off to play some more while I cleaned up the kitchen. While in the kitchen, I heard some "racket" in the family room. I headed in there to see what Luke was doing.

To my surprise, he had cleaned out his "hat drawer" (yes, he has a drawer for his ever-growing hat collection) and was using the drawer as a basketball goal for one of his balls.

Kids and creativity amaze me....Where did Luke come up with that idea? Has he seen another child do that? Or, was that all in his mind?

I haven't shown him that. And, since basketball season is still kind of in pre-season games, we haven't had a lot of basketball on TV yet.

Pretty clever....I'm hoping ideas like that "pop" into his head throughout the winter. Something tells me I'll need to help that creativity along a bit :)
