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)

I think nearly all of these pics have once again already been on Facebook and/or Instagram, but I wanted to repost them. AND, I like to give a little bit more explanation. Luke's done some funny & cute things (at least to us) lately....I want to remember them in every way possible. The pic above is one of Luke talking with one of our elderly neighbors, W. W lives alone. He's in pretty good shape for being in his 80s. He likes to know ALL that is going on in the neighborhood. W comes over to talk with Luke since Luke's not allowed to cross the street. When I walked outside that day, Luke was telling W how many pockets he had. I think Luke keeps W informed about life in general -- Ha! The pic above was taken just yesterday. Yesterday morning, Luke was "grounded" from his bicycle -- for some disobedience. Last night (evening), Marc was working in our "First Ever Friesen Garden" (more to come on that topic). I went outside with Kate to find Luke on his tricycle. He hasn't been on that tricycle since before Christmas (when he received his bicycle). BUT, when one's grounded from the bicycle, I guess you revert back to your younger days and find the tricycle in the open shed. I couldn't dispute it with him. The above pic was taken on Monday -- around lunchtime. The "city guys" were across the street, repairing a small section of our street. There was heavy equipment involved, including a skid steer, a dump truck, and a steam roller (NOTE -- Before having a son, I would have NEVER been able to name off the equipment). To say that Luke was excited would be a HUGE understatement. He came running inside several times to tell me about it. THEN, he did something I don't want to forget. He asked if he could eat lunch on his lawnchair so he could watch them work. I absolutely couldn't turn him down. So, I fixed his lunch on a plastic plate. Luke got his chair out and ate lunch -- all while watching the guys work. I was tending to Kate inside....we missed the "action." I did go out and check on him, and I walked out at just the right time. The gentleman driving the steam roller honked the horn at him and yelled, "See you later, Buddy." Luke just smiled! Last week, I FINALLY got Luke stocked in the clothing department for spring. In the process, he got some new jammies. He picked out these excavator jammies at Carter's. He loves them, and I love them just as much because as his Mama, I think he's cute in them. Again, I don't want to forget! Last weekend, as stated in THIS POST, Luke got to spend the night at my parents' house. Originally, he was supposed to sing with his preschool class at an outdoor community event. Then, he was going to ride with Papa to their house. The outdoor activities were cancelled due to rain. SO, Luke had EXTRA time at his grandparents' house. Luke was ecstatic. He was quick to pack his suitcase and head out. As I was driving him to my parents' house (also a change in plans -- the fact that I drove him there), Luke fell asleep for about 10 minutes. I figured it recharged him just enough to stay up even later for them -- Ha! (And no, I didn't take this pic while driving...we were actually stuck in traffic -- a complete stop on the highway).... AND, to not leave Kate out -- here's the sweet girl whom Luke adores....
