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)

Canned Cheese....

We have some good friends who live up in eastern Washington state. The wife's parents live here in the same town as we do. So, we do get to sometimes see our friends when they are visiting. We do exchange Christmas gifts with them. This year, Marc was given some homemade sausage from Washington as well as some canned cheese -- made at Washington State University. It's called "Cougar Gold" sharp cheddar cheese. I can honestly say I've personally never had cheese out of a can -- which sounds hilarious. Even Emma (who is from France -- where there is a lot of good cheese) had never had cheese out of a can.
Let's just say it was a task to open this can of cheese. It was one strong can. I worked on it for awhile. Emma worked on it for awhile. She was able to get it open enough for us to eat some for supper (with our sausage). But ultimately, Marc had to finish opening it after supper for us to be able to properly store the remainder of the cheese. Goodness....
Yes, it was good cheese. And fortunately, we still have some left!
