Yesterday the children loudly playing, boxes cluttering up the space. The blizzard blowing so hard at times that i couldnt see the church. Thankfully the company was wonderful. The weather seemed to reflect how i had been feeling for the past few weeks.

This is after the blizzard raged. The tail light of Rachel's car glowing from the flash.

Such a stark contrast to today. I'm sitting writing this from my couch in the dining room while the kids eat english muffins. Relaxing after the whirlwind of moving, unpacking, organizing, birthdays and friends. It looks like a snow globe outside, the snow falling so gently and the view from my window so serene.

Thomas's grandfather would come up with the craziest sayings.... he would call Thomas 'the great chinese-canadian grapefruit'.

If your cry at my funeral i will wake up out of my coffin and break all the bones in your eyelash...

and although Jul never met this man, whom he is named after, he shares many traits with him, and tonight he only reinforced it by saying this:

if i run into him (james bond) i'm going to freak out like a baby with a Popsicle on his foot

what does that mean?!

There are things about Rabbi Shmuley i love! He is passionate and brutally honest. He speaks with complete conviction. I love that he spells G-d without O's because of the name being so holy. The Name is holy. He is right.

About almost everything. The only thing he is wrong about: the Messiah has come. He came, He saw, He lived, died and lives again! Rabbi Shmuley is doing the work of G-d. He is searching and discovering the secrets of G-ds heart. Jesus is probably saying 'AMEN, brother!' to what this Rabbi preaches! I know i am.
