Christ is Risen!!!

Let us therefore celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord. He rose, and He brought up with Him the world. He rose, breaking the bonds of death, resurrecting us by breaking the chains of our sins. Adam sinned and died. Christ died but did not sin. This is new and strange. The first sinned and died, the second died having not sinned. For whom did this happen and why? So that he who had sinned and died be liberated from the bonds of death through Him Who died having not sinned. This also happens with those who owe money. Someone is in debt but is unable to repay his debt and therefore is put in prison. Someone else who does not owe the money but is able to pay repays the debt and the debtor is released. This same things happened with Adam and Christ.

Last summer we started dividing our big garage conversion(previous to our buying) into several smaller rooms. The first picture here shows the walls just going up. The second picture skeleton of the spare room my mom is sleeping in now. Another wonderful feature that we did was to build some bookshelves into the wall. These are pretty much finished but need trim and stain. The last pictures are the finished product. I'm so proud of the end result (maybe too proud) I just had to show off the pictures. You can see the door opening in the first couple of pictures and the finished door. It is VERY exciting. What a sense of accomplishment! Thank you sweetie, for all your hard work!

Out of the mouths of babes....

My three year old, Joseph, took Holy Communion on Sunday like a big boy, arms crossed, said his own name, waited for Dn. Lawrence to finish the prayer and walked away to grab his antidoron. As he walked up to me with bread in his mouth, he beamed as he said, "My mouth is holy."

I'm beaming from ear to ear.
