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!

And, to be honest, I didn't take too many photos this Christmas. But, on Christmas Eve, we were at my parents' house. My dad decided he wanted a pic of all four grandkids. As most of you know, it's always interesting getting 4 children to look at the camera, let alone smile -- especially when it was late AND they were wound up from opening gifts and eating sugar.

A side note: Luke received a couple of airplanes from my brother and sister-in-law. He didn't put one of the airplanes down all evening, AND of course, it went to bed with him. It's the airplane in these pics!

First take....Maddie (the youngest) was crying. My dad is in the pic on the left side.

Take Two....The three girls are happy and smiling, BUT Luke is way too focused on his airplane.

Take Three....Grace (the oldest) looks startled. Luke is looking elsewhere.

Take Four....My dad is once again in the pic (on the left). Grace is in a state of leisure. The other three are actually doing O.K.

Take Five (and final)....The best I was able to get.

You get the point....Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's!
