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....

A HOT and windy zoo day....

"Now The Lord God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air.  He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature that was its name.  So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field".  Genesis 2:19-20

I took the kiddos to the zoo today.  We have a membership; therefore, we go often.  Luke LOVES going to the zoo, and Kate is now starting to like going as well -- as opposed to merely being the tag-a-long little sister in the stroller.  But, since I've done a rather poopy job of keeping up on this blog, how about a documentation of at least one of our visits (which happened today)????

First, a little caveat -- Luke took along binoculars.  You will notice in the following pics they were well used -- Ha!

The flamingos...Yes, the binoculars were immediately in use (if you aren't local and haven't been to this zoo, the flamingos are the first animal one sees)....

We made our way (making a few stops first) back to the wolves.  Luke has been very fascinated with wolves lately (I think it comes from a specific video he's been watching about the Old Testament story of Joseph and his coat of many colors).

Fortunately, he was able to spot a wolf seeking shade underneath some trees.  Kate observed with probably not a clue as to what she was looking at -- Ha!

Kate's one of those children who explain why there are so many barriers & boundaries at places like the zoo.  She would've crawled right down in there, had it been accessible.

You see what I mean about the binoculars???  In this next pic, if you look closely, you can see Luke in the glass (behind the tiger) looking through his binoculars to see the tiger already up close -- Ha!

Oops....I caught one where Luke is not using binoculars.

If this next pic were in a museum, I would title it, "The Obligatory Tiger Pic With Both Kiddos".  It's one of those pics I take EACH time we go to the zoo & text to Marc.

And, on the way home, Luke took this sweet pic of his little sister who was simply pooped out!
