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!

And, just a bit about our week...

And, as I stated in my last post -- winter suddenly (and rather rudely) arrived this week.  But, I'm striving to not complain because as I stated on Facebook awhile back (repeating from a FB friend), "complaining about the weather is complaining about the One (God) who created it".

So, we'll just go with it and still find joy!

Since it got cold, Kate got to debut her "new to her" pink coat.  If I do say so myself, I think she's cute in it....

On Tuesday, after picking up Luke from school, I needed to make a quick run into Wal-Mart.  Kate insisted that her brother hold her hand in the parking lot.  I managed to capture a pic!

Changing subjects -- Since Luke's in kindergarten, he's learning to read.  Watching our oldest child learn to read has seriously, in my mind, been one of the most rewarding things to watch -- as in one of the most rewarding in my life.

Last night, *just* as we were getting the kiddos ready for bed, Kate gave into temptation by thinking it would be just sheer awesomeness to touch the hot fireplace.  There were MANY tears.  We soaked her little hand in cool (not cold) water, and our little girl actually ended up sitting with her hand in water for over 2 hours.  Wowsers!

Because of the burn, I did not get accomplished last night some things I had intended on accomplishing.  And, despite Kate usually being awesome with going to bed and sleeping through the night in her own bed, the only way we could get her to lie down and *eventually* go to sleep was for Marc to make her a little bed in the living room.  She & I slept on the floor in the living room.  Though it was a late bedtime, Kate did sleep all night, despite her injury.  We won't discuss how I slept.  Needless to say, I napped today.

And Kate -- well, I just went to check on her, and this is what I found (sorry it's slightly blurry)...

Her extended nap allowed for the writing of this post.  And, how is her little burnt hand?  There are a couple of big blisters, but she seems to be fine!

Hopefully, this evening's bedtime routine goes a bit more smoothly!
