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!

Weekly Meal Plan and Luke (of course)....

I realize it's Sunday evening, but here's a treat -- our meal plan for this week about 18 hours early!

And, if you follow my plan closely, you might notice a few repeats from last week. That would be because we ended up having quite a few leftovers last week (I made big meals, apparently). So, I merely moved some planned meals to the plan this week :)

This past Friday, Luke and I went to the zoo with Luke's friend, B, and his mom, D.

Admittedly, I didn't take too many photos....

But, if you're around Luke, you'll notice that he frequently wears sunglasses. He gets MANY compliments and cute looks with them.

This zoo trip was no exception....You'll notice the sunglasses on his head during this much-needed water break.

Afterwards, Luke and I went to visit his Uncle Joel at Dairy Queen (the one Joel manages)....Yep, the sunglasses remained on his head while eating the ice cream!


More than just okay said...

It was fun seeing you at the zoo. The wind was AWFUL, but the day was fun.

I'm so behind on menu planning this week. Bleh!

Surprised the sunglasses didn't fly off his head in the wind on Friday! I am loving Lukes "Debby's car black. Wash Debby's car." He is just too cute!!!
