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)

And, just for fun....

Today, here in these "neck of the woods," the weather is quite nice for December -- mid 50s....

So, this morning, Luke and I went and played at Athletic Park here in town.

Of course, Luke spent quite a bit of time on the steps. (Keep in mind all three of these photos were taken with my phone).

Last summer, at this park, Luke went down one of the slides. It was very hot, and the hotness hurt his poor little legs. Since then, he hasn't been down that particular slide. Today, however, he went to this slide. I encouraged him to go down the slide. Of course, he remembered the "hot," and he told me "hot" over and over.

Finally, with some more encouragement, he did go down this slide. I didn't get a photo, though :(

But, at noon, the tornado sirens were tested (as they are all year round here on Mondays at noon). They're fairly loud. Luke wasn't at all scared, but he did give me this very serious look for quite awhile.

Wow, your phone takes awesome photos! Very sharp and the color is great.

Oh yes, it was such a lovely day, ahhhh! So lovely that I was filling all the cracks in our house and foundation with the spray insulating foam, about the time the sirens sounded... those sirens make me jump every time.

"this is a test... this... is a test... of the emergency... warning... system... this... is only... a test"
