It's Resurrection Day

Happy Resurrection Day, Y'all!  Today we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus.  Death couldn't hold Him, Hell couldn't contain Him.  He lives and because HE lives, we live as well.  Death has no hold on us anymore. 

I may bungle this, but I'm gonna do my best.  People don't go to church because they think they have to be perfect to go.  They don't realize that it's only through Jesus that we are made perfect.  As Christians, sometimes we forget that it can be a little intimidating to those who are to step foot in the door of a church.  We need to be willing to reach out and go to where our lost brothers and sisters are to reach them where they are before we expect them to come to us.  This has been a very difficult thing for me to grasp, but I am starting to come to grips with the fact that my career is my mission field.  As such, I need to be willing to show Jesus' love to my patients and their families regardless of other factors.  I don't have to be "in your face" to make that work, I just need to let Jesus work through me.

As far as the boys go, things are pretty much the same.  Matt's had an increase in meltdowns lately, and Scott's bumming cause he has a strained hip flexor & can't run and play like he likes to do.  Jason is communing with the computer chair, and I'm sore from exercising, but it's all good!  On a happy note, congratulations to my nephew, Chris, and his wife, Katie and the birth of their new baby girl!
