He Has Risen!!!

1 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” 8 Then they remembered his words. Luke 24:1-8

"With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last. The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!” - Mark 15:38-39

The Wisdom of a 3 Year Old

As the storm clouds rolled in this morning, Eddie took the opportunity to talk to Sebastian about rain and thunder and such. They were discussing about how rain comes from the clouds and the sound thunder makes. Sebastian replies: "Thunder hurts the Clouds ears."

No More Crib!

Medical Updates

In order of occurrence My Mom: is well on her road of recovery post stroke. She has moved into her own place and has just started physical, occupational, and memory therapy. We miss her very much- especially Sebastian. Guita does not get any rest when she comes and visit cause Sebastian does not want to let her out of his sight. He protests when she is leaving and asks her to move back in:) My Dad: Responded well to radiation and hormone therapies. He is done with radiation and gets his hormone treatment quarterly via shot. He continues his road to remission in NC. Eddie: Is a week out of surgery. This time around has been harder on him. He is still really sore, stiff, and his throat is still really sore. He is resting and taking it easy watching TV and movies in his newly remodeled man cave with his mini me, Sebastian.
