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)

About the Friesen's....

A Little Peak at Christmas Eve....

The three of us got to spend a very nice, relaxing day together for Christmas Eve...

Here's a glimpse.

First, this morning, Marc went to our local donut shop, Druber's, and picked up some donuts for us.

We had planned on going to visit Santa this morning, but since the weather was slightly crummy, I personally didn't feel like getting out. And, since Luke is young yet (and doesn't fully "get" what's going on), I figured we'd be O.K. not physically taking Luke there. Next year, it'll probably be another story.

Luke and Marc PLAYED A LOT!

But, they did have some quiet time as well....

We knew we'd be eating B.I.G. at my parents' in the evening, and so, we took it "easy" for lunch. We went to Arby's....We always like it, and Luke does well there.

Luke got a GOOD nap in....in fact, we had to wake him up to leave for church and my parents' house in the late afternoon. Luke's a great napper in general, but today was exceptional. I guess it had something to do with Marc's "hard" playing that tired him out.

While Luke was taking a nap, Marc and I enjoyed a short nap ourselves. Then, Marc assembled a certain little guy's Christmas present for tomorrow.

We went to church with my parents and my brother and sister-in-law (and their kids). We then went to my parents' house for the evening. But, I'll save all of that for another post (I have quite a few photos).

In the meantime, there's a Christmas Story marathon on TBS.

Admittedly, Marc and I really like to watch this movie over and over....It's a tradition.

But, we have Luke's Christmas present ready -- under the tree and all.

In case you can't see it, here's a photo with the flash....Yep, Luke's getting a tricycle, and I can't wait to see him try it in the driveway tomorrow. Knowing Luke, he won't mind the cold at all.
