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)

A Promised Recipe from the Weekend....

Well, now that I have you reading this blog (perhaps for the first time or again -- since I hadn't blogged much in the last year or so), I'm going to post a recipe. This is a recipe I saw several had posted on Facebook. I don't know exactly where it came from (it may have originally been on Pinterest)....But, I tried it this weekend, and I even did something I generally don't do -- I used others (as opposed to my own family) be guinea pigs for the new recipe. I made it for our church's tech and worship team breakfast -- which I do on occasion. BUT FIRST, because the recipe just might have piqued your interest to this blog, you must look at a pic of one of my kids. I decided this past weekend to start something I'd been thinking about for awhile. There's a trend "out there" where one takes a pic of their child(ren) each day for a year. Then, one puts these pics on Instagram daily with a created hash tag. At the end of 365 days, one has 365 pics of their child(ren) -- thus able to create a cool collage. SO, here's my Day 1...under the hash tag #gratefulforfriesenkiddos. (You can find it on Instagram if needed. You can also find me under "scfriesen"). AND NOW, the recipe....Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake....With an electric mixer or stand-up mixer, mix 3 Cups flour, 1 Cup Sugar, 1/4 tsp. salt, 4 tsp. baking powder, 1 1/2 Cups Milk, 2 Eggs, and 2 tsp. Vanilla. Once combined well, slowly stir in 4 Tbsp. melted butter. Pour batter into a greased 9 X 13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, mix 2 sticks of butter (1 Cup), 1 C. brown sugar, 2 Tbsp. Flour, 1 Tbsp. cinnamon, and 2/3 Cups Nuts (optional) until well combined. Drop evenly over cake batter by the tablespoon and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out nearly clean from center. Place 2 Cups Powdered Sugar, 5 Tbsp. milk, and 1 tsp. vanilla in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over warm cake. Serve warm or at room temperature. Quite tasty!
