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)

May 2....

If you read THIS PARTICULAR POST from yesterday, you'll know that I'm striving to take at least one pic a day in May -- on a topic that was given already. Today's topic for a photo -- "Skyline." I actually decided to take this a bit differently. Allow me to explain. Luke has a book about airplanes. In this book, it has a picture and a description of an airplane that flies over skyscrapers. From this book, Luke has learned about skyscrapers. BUT, since we live in a small town and not near a HUGE city, Luke tends to think that all somewhat tall buildings are skyscrapers. SO, since our little fine town of Newton definitely doesn't have any skyscrapers nor any real skyline to take a pic of -- I took a pic of Luke's version of a skyscraper in Newton.
If you're local, you know exactly where this building is located. It's actually a set of apartments. But Luke, in his cute little 3 year-old mind, looks at this building as a skyscraper. The funny thing is that back in March, we were in a couple of large cities with some buildings that would've been closer to skyscrapers. Luke did notice them. BUT, we return to Newton, and this building is still a skyscraper to him. I L.O.V.E. his innocence and excitement for things that we take for granted!

I'm ok with our Newton having that as a skyscraper. It might be fun to visit cities that have the real thing, but I would rather live here any day!
