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)

Miscellaneous Luke....

I have a couple of non-Luke related posts in mind, but I don't have them formulated yet.

So, for now....how about a few more shots of our kid?

Lately, we've been just kind of "living life...."

Here are a few shots of our little guy who, each day, is becoming more and more like a little boy.


For four Thursdays (in April and May), Luke was once again enrolled in a Toddler Gym Class at our local recreation center. Click HERE for some photos from this same class back in January.

First....and this is totally random....here's a cute photo of Luke I took while we were stopped waiting on a train here in town -- on the way to this very gym class. Fortunately, we weren't late :)

(The reason I'm posting this photo is because Marc and I both think he looks SO grown up in this photo for only being almost 3).

On the last day of this gym class, it was nice. So, the instructor gave each child some bubbles, and we spent time outside with bubbles....

If you look closely at these photos, you'll notice droplets of liquid on the concrete behind Luke. Yep, that would be Luke's spilled bubbles -- a very common thing, I know, for small children who haven't yet grasped the concept of properly holding the bottle to avoid this very phenomenon.

And NO -- Mr. Independent Luke does NOT allow either of us to help him. (Hmmmm....I wonder where he got this sense of independence? Could it be from his father and mother?)


And, yesterday (Tuesday, the 10th), Luke's friend, C, invited him over to play with his sprinkler ball. It was nice and warm as if you're a reader of this blog NOT in Kansas, let me tell you -- it's been HOT for May over the last several days.

The nice thing about Luke's friend, C, is that I enjoy talking with his mom, J.....nice way to spend part of an afternoon.

(Luke's in the blue Hawaiian swim trunks -- with the very white skin. Hmmmm....could he be a descendent of the Germans?)


And, just for fun -- here's a photo of Luke from today -- going down a slide at a local playground. His legs just look so long in this photo!
