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!

Happy Memorial Day & Weekly Meal Plan....

Happy Memorial Day!

I hope that today was not just a) the kick-off to summer or b) merely a long weekend, BUT that it was a weekend to truly remember those who have died in serving and protecting our country!

Though I've always known what Memorial Day was all about, I know that I certainly haven't, throughout most of my life, truly appreciated the day!

However, the older I get -- the MORE I truly am thankful for those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country!

Our weekend has been spent together as a family. Marc took this past Friday off, and he also took tomorrow (Tuesday, 05/31) off. It's been wonderful to spend time together.

We were also able to spend time with my parents and brother and sister-in-law (and their three kids) last night.

I'm NOT at all crafty and creative, but for supper at my parents' last night, I managed to "throw together" this flag cake....it's not the greatest, but for me, it's pretty spectacular.

It's short on two "stars" and three "stripes," but you get the point!

Here in our little town of Newton, KS, at the city cemetery, they do a nice job (we think) for Memorial Day. There are MANY flags up, and all of the veterans' graves have flags.

After lunch, the three of us went to the cemetery to see the flags. Neither Marc nor I know of any relatives buried there, but it's nice to drive through. This time, at the request of Luke, we parked the car and got out to see the flags up close. Luke had a HARD time not touching them.

I have some other thoughts on Memorial Day, but I'll save them for another post....this post will already be too long :)


In the meantime, I haven't posted a meal plan in two weeks, and it's NOT because we haven't had one. I just haven't gotten it posted.

So -- here is this week's....
