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....

We are Marc, Sarah, Luke, and Kate Friesen. We were married June 5, 2004. We have one son, born July 21, 2008, named Luke Andrew -- now 4 years old. We also have a daughter named Kate Christine -- born June 6, 2012. Marc is working at Cessna as a Senior Accountant, and Sarah stays home full-time with Luke. Sarah also gets to work very part-time at home for Graber Backhoe -- an excavation company AND VERY part-time at our church. We LOVE being a part of Grace Community Church here in Newton, KS. We lead a Community Life Group of other wonderful couples. Marc thoroughly enjoys long-distance running and Taekwondo. Sarah thoroughly enjoys walking -- especially when the weather is nice to take Luke and/or out in the stroller. Thanks for reading our blog!

I wouldn't call the family I came from the "tightest" of families.  Yep -- we get along.  Yep -- my parents have been married for 42 years -- Yay!  Yep -- we get together a fair amount.  But, compared to some other families I've been around, we're not that tight.  I'm certainly not bashing my family. I love them.  They're a big part of who I am. God placed me in my family with a purpose.  BUT, Marc & I would like to at least attempt to keep our little family of 4 tighter.

The other evening, our little family of 4 walked in our little county fair parade together -- all in support of a political candidate.  NOW, I don't post much about politics on this blog because quite frankly, I don't want the controversy on here.  So, please don't leave nasty comments if you disagree with us or I might just be deleting them.

The whole point of this post is about what we did as a family!

It was fairly hot (but certainly not the hottest ever).  Luke refused to put on a t-shirt to represent the candidate, despite EVERYBODY else wearing one.  (At lead the put on a patriotic shirt at home).  But, you know...it was all good otherwise!  (And thanks to some other people who took some of these pics -- you know who you are)!

Luke's in the red shirt in the pic below....

Tomorrow is primary Election Day!  Get out and vote, please....

And, speaking of close family -- I LOVE, and I mean, LOVE our kiddos' sibling relationship.  I'm well aware they will fight (and do sometimes).  Honestly, I'm "owed" because my brother & I fought a lot!  But, I hope and very much pray they always love & support each other.  I pray that, until they're married, they're each other's biggest cheerleader and encourager!
