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 Summer Fun....

I know it's been a bit since I've posted. My excuse for not posting last week was a very good and very valid one -- Vacation Bible School at our church.

I helped with the 2nd grade class...FUN age with some boys with A LOT of energy. I received a bit of a taste of what's to come with our own son.

Luke was in the 2 year-old class with Miss Debby and Miss Jennifer -- as well as Jillian, Lilibeth, and Drew (my apologies if I've left anybody out). Click HERE for some cute photos of the 2 year-olds (including Luke) from Debby's blog.

As a COMPLETE sidenote (but, very important)....here are some verses I read this morning....

If someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other's burderns, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else, for each one should carry his own load. Galatians 6:1-5

(That bolded part is my prayer for Luke today....that he will learn to be responsible)....

Anyways, here are our meals for this week....

This past weekend, our niece, Natalie, turned the BIG 4!

So, the three of us hung out over at my brother and sister-in-law's (Joel and Amber's) house for the evening.

They had their "kiddie pool" set up. Luke and his older cousin, Grace (almost 6 years old) played in the pool for a bit.

They had a good time splashing each other. It wasn't extremely hot that evening, and after awhile, Luke was SHIVERING. I'm not sure I've seen him shiver that much yet....as illustrated a little bit in the last pic (he's somewhat "hamming it up" in this pic as well).

It seems Graham and Luke both like to stand and splash in the pool, as opposed to sitting in it. That's how Graham was on Memorial Day this year. He was also a bit chilly. I'm sure he wishes pools were filled with bathwater!
