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)

Buh-Bye to the Toddler Bed...

Last night, we had our family Valentine's Day dinner.

We went to church this morning and took naps/rest time this afternoon.

At 4:00 PM, our little family made the trek with our neighbors' truck, which they kindly let us borrow, into the big city near us to purchase a full-sized mattress set for Kate.  It was simply time for Kate to be out of her toddler bed.

We're HUGE fans of "Costco". They had a special on this set.  We went for it!

"Costco" employees provide fabulous service...today's big purchase once again proved that statement!

We then ran to "Target" to pick up Kate some new bedding for her BIG bed...followed by supper at "Qdoba"....followed by the trip home when Marc would put together her new bed!

As you can see, Kate was just a *wee* bit excited about her new bed.  Our kids are both great sleepers. SO -- I'm guessing I'll see Kate at an appropriate time in the morning, and she'll tell me how great she slept in her new bed!

At 8:30, both kids' attitudes went south which provided a not-so-fun ending to our family time.  BUT, as I already stated on social media, His mercies are new every morning!  Tomorrow will be a better day!

Because it's President's Day, Luke's going to be home as well as Miriam....

The only thing that would make it better would be if Marc were off work, BUT bills still need to be paid. Marc's an awesome provider.  He'll need to go to work.
