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....

We are Marc, Sarah, Luke, and Kate Friesen. We were married June 5, 2004. We have one son, born July 21, 2008, named Luke Andrew -- now 4 years old. We also have a daughter named Kate Christine -- born June 6, 2012. Marc is working at Cessna as a Senior Accountant, and Sarah stays home full-time with Luke. Sarah also gets to work very part-time at home for Graber Backhoe -- an excavation company AND VERY part-time at our church. We LOVE being a part of Grace Community Church here in Newton, KS. We lead a Community Life Group of other wonderful couples. Marc thoroughly enjoys long-distance running and Taekwondo. Sarah thoroughly enjoys walking -- especially when the weather is nice to take Luke and/or out in the stroller. Thanks for reading our blog!

Our Weekend, Part 2....

This post is a continuation of MY PREVIOUS POST about this past weekend.

First -- a couple of housekeeping items....

1) If you read my comments from the previous post, you might have noticed that our friend, Debby, had a question....about the price of these cabins...

Click HERE to find the answer.

2) Three of the photos towards the end of the previous post were "small." They were taken by Ross -- see THIS SITE for details.


So, the first morning of our weekend (Saturday, the 2nd of April), Marc got up REALLY early to run a race....I barely remember when he left since I was still striving to get some sleep. Luke was sleeping at this point :)

But, I must post a view from our cabin deck....not bad for the middle of Kansas.

Since Luke was up earlier than normal (you know, not his normal bed and all), Luke spent some time....

1) Continuously playing with his bedroom door in the cabin (and for those of you who know Luke personally and his INTENSE fascination for doors -- this should come as NO surprise to you)....

2) Working to "jump" on his "Cabin Big Boy Bed...." (I had to monitor this closely because a fall off of the bed would've been BAD since the floor is VERY HARD)....Fortunately, no accidents occurred.

3) Eating breakfast, of course....Luke didn't want to sit at the table (I didn't mind -- we were on "vacation"). He wanted to eat his breakfast standing up, while his food sat on the chairs.


After awhile, Luke and I headed out for an almost 4-mile walk around the state park.

We went to the shore of the lake....Luke enjoyed simply sitting at the table while drinking his morning juice.

And then, we headed to the amphitheater area of the park -- where church services are held each Sunday during the summer vacation season....It would be great to worship outside in this quiet park!

Across from the amphitheater is a "kids' pond...." I assume it's used as a smaller and "safer" area for kids to swim. Obviously, the water's still a bit too cold to swim right now.

After our nice walk, we, at Luke's request, headed back to the cabin -- Luke LOVED this cabin (I can't emphasize this fact enough).

Luke wanted to, once again, blow bubbles. Again, it was WINDY. Luke had bubbles, thankfully.

And now, this post is long enough for right now....

There will be MORE TO COME (including the finale of the race) next week!

In my next post, my new favorite pics will be shared!

Have a fabulous weekend!
