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....

Our Weekend, Part 1....

As I mentioned in MY PREVIOUS POST, we (as in all three of us) spent this past weekend HERE....

We went to Kanopolis State Park because Marc was signed up to run in a 50-mile race (YEP -- 50 miles) called Rockin' K. Rockin' K is a race that is sponsored and "put on" by the Kansas Ultrarunners' Society -- of which Marc is the treasurer.

The race was on Saturday, but we arrived on Friday afternoon to get ourselves moved into and Luke napping in this cabin....

Luke ecstatic as he rode in the car there.

In the afternoon, during Luke's very non-existent nap (I tried, though), Marc went and helped the race organizers, Phil & Stacy. So, after Luke's non-existent nap, I went for a walk around the state park with our jogging stroller -- which we took along (and store on the cabin's deck -- locked up).

The stroller proved to be a very good thing to have along -- Luke napped briefly in it on Friday afternoon, and Luke and I used it on Saturday (more on Saturday in a future post).

But, moving on....to our Friday evening....

Luke played with bubbles quite a bit outside the cabin....The VERY STRONG Kansas winds we had this past weekend proved helpful to Luke and bubbles; otherwise, I'm not sure he would've gotten any bubbles.

Phil & Stacy (the race organizers) have a pre-race supper for the runners and their families. Stacy makes homemade meatballs (over 1,000 of them) to have spaghetti/meatballs, salad, and bread. YUMMY!!!!

Everybody gathers to eat at one of the shelters in the park.

And, to end this post....here are some photos of our family....

Luke -- sitting in the shelter before supper.

My two favorite guys (Marc & Luke) -- also in the shelter before supper.

Luke -- hanging out after supper -- outside!

And, how about Luke and his Mama after supper -- again, outside!

And -- our latest family pic....

Stay turned for the "rest of the weekend" post -- coming soon!

What is rent on those cabins? I think you told me once but can't recall.

Looks like fun! Luke is looking a lot like Marc in some of those pictures.
