Easter

CD6216C4-404D-4A48-B857-B65693580527“And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many. When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭27:51-54‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭28:5-6‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Easter
What a celebration we should have every day for the Hope that Easter brings. Our Faith is our choice to believe and I often wonder how witnesses to the events surrounding the crucifixion and resurrection could ever deny what they saw; but, even today, many of us see all manner of miracles around us and deny His existence. Still He lives!!

Light of the World

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭60:20‬ ‭GNT‬‬

Just as the jonquil boldly heralds spring and then quickly withers, we are called to shine our light in our fleeting life. But sometimes we just get bogged down in our busy-ness and we doubt ourselves. The enemy wants us vulnerable and ashamed so we must keep our eyes on His Kingdom and let His Spirit work through us

When I think of home, I envision a safe place where I have freedom to be myself and not worry about the outside world. At home, I am loved for just being me. Unfortunately not everyone experiences this ideal situation, but ultimately I believe we all desire to belong to such a place. Our Hope is that one day we will go to our Eternal Home and experience that forever.

Our Wedding

Tomorrow (12/22/2018), Sheridan and I will be married. Our story began when she, a news reporter, interviewed me as the first Radiation Oncologist in a new Cancer Center. Soon thereafter, we serendipitously met at a fundraiser and talked all day. Somehow we did not start dating then because we misread each other’s interest. Our paths diverged for 9 years, and then we reconnected on LinkedIn and our journey together began 2 years ago. We have traveled the World and shared so many precious memories already; but, God willing, we are just beginning. Yesterday, my sister informed me that my maternal grandparents were married on December 22, 1925–that and the Full Moon tomorrow—good signs🙏
