and the whole earth shook.

Matthew 28:1-10

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week,
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went
to look at the tomb.

There was a violent earthquake,

for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and,
going to the tomb,
rolled back the stone and
sat on it.

His appearance was like lightning, and
his clothes were white as snow.

The guards were so afraid of him that
they shook and
became like dead men.

The angel said
to the women,
"Do not be afraid,
for I know that you are
looking for Jesus,
who was crucified.

He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
Come and see
 the place where he lay.

Then go quickly and tell his disciples:
'He has risen from the dead and
is going ahead of you into
There you will see him.'
Now I have told you."

So the women hurried away from the tomb,

                     with joy,

and ran to tell his disciples.

         Jesus met them.
                          "Greetings," he said.

They came to him,
clasped his feet and
worshiped him.

Then Jesus said to them,
"Do not be afraid.
and tell my brothers to
go to Galilee;
there they will see me."

Well I figure I might as well.

It's that time again -
a monthly blog post!

Really, I wish I could write more, but in what I hope will be a
post in the next few days, I'll explain all the reasons and
excuses of why I just feel like I can't.

But for now, I'd like to show you a picture of some cookies.

 Well, Google, you decided to get fancy with the text wrapping, huh?

What does this have to do with anything? 

I ran the March Madness Bracket tourney at my work, which was
a ton of fun!

Most of the people picked Kentucky to win (I picked Ohio State...bah, Kansas!),
and it came down to final score predictions to
determine the winner.

The winner, Dr. Bob Herron, wanted some kind of cookie with
pecans in them (doing his Louisiana roots proud),
so I was able to find this little gem after a couple clicks of the mouse.

They are tasty - yet another winner from the Smitten Kitchen site.

One key tip - don't skip the oatmeal.  You will,
I say,
will regret that decision.

p.s. I know text wrapping has been around for a while, just wanted to acknowledge it.
p.p.s. I know Google doesn't really read this blog...or DO they?!
