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)

The Mundane of Life....

I feel like ALL of my posts have exhibited nothing more than the mundane happenings of our life.  BUT -- I honestly believe that is satan planting that thought into my head.  That simply isn't true.

God doesn't call us to have an "exciting" life (in the worldly sense) all of the time.  BUT -- He does call us to a life of glorifying Him and telling others about His Son, Jesus Christ.  He wants us to enjoy what He's given us on this earth.

It's taken me a LONG time to realize that I don't need a so-called exciting life (again -- in the worldly sense).  I have learned, and am still ultimately learning, that our little family's life in small town USA is exactly where He has us right now.  And honestly, at this point in my almost 40 years of life, I'm content with that statement.  Though, if I'm honest, that discontentment *creeps* in or else there would be NO point to these first three paragraphs.


With all of that in mind....

Kate & I were at "Costco" the other day -- as we seem to be a *wee* bit too much.  We spotted some dresses, and I ended up buying her a pretty pink dress for Easter....I told her she cannot wear it until the end of next month, though she'd wear it now if I let her.  I'm not so legalistic as to have a problem with "pre-wearing" an Easter dress, BUT knowing Kate, she'd rip it if she wore it before then.  Needless to say, it's currently nicely hanging up in her closet right now.

During the same "Costco" visit -- Kate found a little playhouse.  It was SO cute!  Honestly, I'd love to buy it for her.  But, it's about $100 more than we want to spend.

Saturday was "National Cherry Pie" Day.  Our family celebrated -- completely a la mode!

I am thankful for "Marie Callender" as pie making is not my big talent in life.  If you cannot tell, the pie picture is in the lower right corner of this pic!

Luke has REALLY gotten into baseball lately.  We haven't yet put him on any sort of team.  That's most likely going to change this spring -- though Luke doesn't know that yet.

Last summer, for Luke's birthday, Luke received a "throw back".  He uses it frequently.

I honestly don't know if he's any good, BUT it's fun to watch him!

Luke also is really into baseball cards!  Marc has saved all of his baseball cards from when he was younger!  They've become quite the project!
